Honor Mackenzie works hard guarding the dark secrets of her past as she does training Search and Rescue (SAR) dogs. As for reporter Matt Phillips, not even his former SAR work is as important as protecting his twins.
Then a jumbo jet crash puts them face-to-face at the grisly scene--and forces Matt and Honor to reconsider their long-standing "single forever" status. Yet Matt has issues with Honor’s past, and is still struggling with them when he's told Honor has disappeared during a rescue effort.
Matt leads the search team, desperate to find Honor before a blizzard moves in. But even if he does, will they find their way back to each other or go back to living life alone?
Title: Honor Redeemed
SubTitle: First Responders Book #2
Publisher: Abingdon Press
Pub Date: February 01, 2012
Honor Redeemed is book two in the First Responder series, and I highly recommend reading book one, "From Ashes to Honor" first.
When we have been hurt, our natural tendency is to build walls around ourselves and make sure that nobody can get close enough to hurt us again. This is exactly what happens in both books in this series. Honor and Matt have a lot in common, and they are attracted to each other, but they are both scared. Matt's two young boys have figured it out, but it takes a long time for the adults to realize how much they mean to each other.
When Matt learns that Honor is lost in a winter storm in the mountains, he doesn't hesitate to go to her rescue. He is forced to come to terms with his true feelings, and Honor has had lots of time to think about their relationship as she waits to be rescued.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to checking out other books by Loree Lough.
