Healed By Love eBook & Giveaway

Book #1 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Book #13 The Bradens series, Love in Bloom #25

Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love.

Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.

THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

Healed By Love is an appropriately titled book. Love can bring people together in a time of need. It can also help a person move on from their inner demons.
Melissa Foster did a wonderful job presenting how love can help heal in this story. The main characters, Jewel and Nate, can help each other grow and continue living life after the hardships they've both faced. As long as they don't place blame on each other or themselves for things that happened in the passed, Nate and Jewel can be healed by love. 
Melissa made the characters come alive in her story. I ached with Jewel over the loss of her father and brother. I know what it's like to lose family and wanting to bottle up the remaining ones and keep them safe. Jewel has spent the past few years trying to be a big sister, a step-in parent, and her siblings' protector that it leaves no time for Jewel to just live for Jewel. Her demons happened to be the fear that's inside her, only Nate can make her realize that. Nate has been in the war. He may have come back alive, but he was still wounded by what happened during the war. Nate holds a deep secret that's eating him alive. Telling Jewel could either ease the pain or cause him to lose her for good.
Even the secondary characters were wonderfully portrayed. Each one had a personality that stood out. The Bradens are a wonderful and amusing family to read about. 
This story certainly put a few tears in my eyes when the characters were struggling with their losses, yet it brought a smile to my face with their love.
