Who would have imagined that trying to rescue a lost kitten could get a girl into so much trouble? Mary Wade Kimball sure found out the hard way! A storm would quickly overtake her life and it wasn’t from the threatening wind and clouds that preceded an approaching hurricane.
“Rescued Hearts” quickly moved into an action and suspense filled tale with plenty of danger and romance to keep most readers turning those pages. Characters were well developed and I enjoyed getting to know Mary Wade and Brett during their adventure. Each of them learned valuable lessons along the way as they worked hard to avoid the men after them, including a dependence on their faith to get them through.
This exciting, faith-filled tale held my attention captive until the very end. I recommend it to all who enjoy a good suspenseful story without the blood and gore.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Children’s clothing designer Mary Wade Kimball’s soft spot for animals leads to a hostage situation when she spots a briar- entangled kitten in front of an abandoned house. Beaten, bound, and gagged by the two thugs inside, Mary Wade loses hope for escape when a third villain returns with supplies.
Discovering the kidnapped woman ratchets the complications for undercover agent Brett Davis. Weighing the difference of ruining his three months’ investigation against the woman’s safety, Brett forsakes his mission and helps her escape, the bent-on-revenge brutes following behind.
When Mary Wade’s safety is threatened once more, Brett rescues her again. This time, her personal safety isn’t the only thing in jeopardy. Her heart is endangered as well.
