It’s always exciting to discover an author you love has begun a new series. I love Tina Radcliffe’s stories, so Finding the Road Home was a fun one to read.
Daisy Anderson is one strong woman. Right from the start we see that she takes on the world, with five children who have lost their parents, a new job in a new town, and a home to restore. I worried for her mental sanity and her physical strength right off the bat. Plus, she’s a tough policewoman who is afraid of mice. I can identify with the afraid of mice thing!
Poor Mitch Rainbolt starts out with the deer in the headlights persona. He wants to help the new neighbor, wants to maintain authority and respect with his new officer, and wonders how Daisy will survive with everything she’s taken on. He immediately becomes protective. And Mitch is convinced were there ever any attraction between him and his new officer, he’s too old for her anyway. The guy’s already a hero.
Daisy’s life seems to be taking off on its own bumpy roller coaster when we find out she has a dream that has nothing to do with the life she currently lives. It just makes me want to hug her.
But then Daisy finds out her job is in trouble and her world threatens to crumble. She does her best not to let it and what follows is a fun and creative adventure as Daisy and Mitch try to overcome their problems.
I won’t tell you if Daisy loses her job and I won’t say if she gets the guy, but I will tell you by the end of this story you will have an unusual craving for pie.
Author, Tina Radcliffe writes sweet stories with characters that tug at your heartstrings. She always delivers a happily ever after ending that leaves you feeling upbeat and positive. I love the Oklahoma setting with cowboys and horses. And I like reading about community working together. Finding the Road Home is a wonderful story I’m sure you’ll enjoy.
Best of all Finding the Road Home is the start of a new series named Hearts of Oklahoma, so I know there will be more terrific stories to come!
