Hometown Hero's Redemption by Jill Kemerer
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I was not bribed or told that I have to rate it a certain way.
From the back of the book:
When he becomes guardian to his friend's troubled ten-year-old boy, firefighter Drew Gannon knows he needs help. But before he can get former social worker Lauren Pierce to agree, he's got to prove he's changed from the sports jock who gave her a hard time back in high school. Returning home, Lauren wants no part of her old profession. She only wants to forget the unspeakable tragedy she left behind. She can't take responsibility for another child. Or a reunion with Drew—no matter how generous he's become. But a desperate boy and his handsome guardian may be more than Lauren can resist…
My thoughts on Jill Kemerer:
Jill Kemerer is such a sweetheart of a person. She is so humble, down to earth and funny. She loves to really tell a story in her short pages of each book. Jill has a real talent for story telling, for developing plot lines and characters.
My thoughts on the story:
My heart went out to the little kid named Wyatt. I can't even begin to imagine all that he had gone through. My father was in the military for 17 years and while growing up there was times I drove my mom bananas because I missed him so much.
Drew Gannon being a firefighter is a really important because its not every day that people are willing to put their lives on the line for other people. I can't help but being really grateful to these people who do this without so much as a thank you. This story really touches the heart and even tugs at the strings.
At first, I was amazed at how cold hearted Lauren seem to be until she realized that she was needed to help Wyatt and his family. I love how this story ended and can't believe how cute I believe Lauren, Drew and Wyatt truly are.
I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
Where to buy:
Below are people I could see playing each of the characters:
Wyatt as a young kid (couldn't find a 10 year old picture that I liked)
Until next time,
