I recently started reading Hope Toler’s books and so far they’ve been a delight.
The world of Mary Wade and Brett was a really interesting one; from kidnapping to running during a hurricane, to dodging bullets and criminal… interesting, intriguing, lip-biting suspect and action.
Their first meeting was scary but I admired how Mary Wade took it in stride. Her name was one of the most unique names “Mary Wade” I’ve read in books. I admired her straight and tenacity even when oppositions came. She pursued what she believed in and that was amazing. I liked her faith in God, it wasn’t perfect but I liked that she was trying daily.
The attraction between her and Brett was sweet. I loved how he protected her and loved her. I liked how his presence in her life influenced changes in her life. Very kind and compassionate man who put others firsy before himself.
Theirs was a beautiful story spiced with love and happy endings.
I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.

More From Hope.
I live in the country on land my great grandfather owned. For exercise, I ride my bike on our two-lane roads. One afternoon a few years ago, I took a detour off the paved road and onto a dirt path not too far from my house.
The lane meanders by the location of a distant cousin’s long-since demolished house. Trees and a few bushes still outline the phantom house’s parameters, but no boards or bricks mark the spot. Farm equipment waits under nearby shelters.
As I passed the lonely trees and silent tractors, a creepy sensation tickled the back of my neck. My imagination kicked into gear. What if a bike rider rode by an abandoned house? What if she saw a kitten entangled in a honeysuckle vine at the porch steps? What if, while she tried to free the kitten, someone grabbed her and dragged her inside where she was beaten and threatened with rape?
My pedaling picked up speed, and I reached home in record time.
Those questions continued popping up in my mind, however. I began seeing the characters, then hearing them speak every night as I dropped off to sleep. I’d never written a romantic suspense story before, but the characters refused to leave me alone.
Those initial questions led to the first chapter of Rescued Hearts.
To celebrate her tour, Hope is giving away the grand prize package of a $25 Amazon gift card and a print copy of Rescued Hearts!!
