Finding Her Way Back (K-9 Companions #2) by Lisa Carter

Finding Her Way Back

Healing his daughter is worth risking his heart.

After a tragic event leaves Rob Melbourne’s little girl traumatized, he’ll do anything to help her recover—even enlist his first love, Juliet Newkirk, and her therapy pup, Moose. Working with Juliet stirs up old feelings for Rob, a distraction he doesn’t need. But with the dog’s help, the road to healing his daughter might just give Rob and Juliet a second chance at happiness…


Author Lisa Carter has a unique way of creating characters that we'd all like to know, placing them in realistic situations, and then, throwing in a plot complication that grabs our hearts and won't let them go! This is certainly the case with her newest book, Finding Her Way Back. After five years, Juliet Newkirk still grieves for her late husband Josh, and she believes that opening her heart to a former classmate would dishonor Josh's memory. Well, it's one thing to resist a swoon-worthy hero, but how do you say "no" to a sweet little girl who's already lost her mother and fears that she'll lose her daddy also?

This book covers so many emotions, and many of them revolve around grief, and how each person handles it differently. Finding Her Way Back shows the value of love and understanding, and the joy and healing that comes when we can finally let go of the past. Their 'second chance at love' is sweet, but there's also a thrilling chemistry between Juliet and Rob Melbourne, and I couldn't believe that she could resist this special man! Throw in an adorable little girl, a pint-sized therapy dog named Moose, and a group of knitters who are more than willing to share their "purls of wisdom for unsnarling the tangles of life", and you have a story that you can't put down.

I thoroughly enjoyed this touching visit to Laurel Grove and I recommend Finding Her Way Back to all who enjoy Christian romance.

I received a copy of this book from the author but was under no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
