Pearl Valley, Wounded Soldiers Series, Book Two
A town plagued by mysterious fires, and two people struggling to find peace.
Trevor Jacobs, ex-navy seal, lost his leg during a military excursion. Not only is he hampered by physical limitations, but he has to suffer the pitying stares of strangers whenever he ventures into the public eye.
Janie Dossett lost her mother to a fire ten years ago, and her life changed forever. Now she shies away from the public, secluding herself in the only place she feels comfortable, her hometown.
When Trevor Jacobs shows up searching for Jane Dossett, Janie doesn’t readily reveal herself. Trevor is seeking something from her, something she doesn’t think she can give.
The ladder stabilized, and she looked down to find a tall man, his head covered in a cowboy hat, holding the ladder in place.
“Come on down, miss. I’ll hold it steady.”
Frozen with fear, it took a few moments for her to move.
He said, “Am I going to have to come up and get you? I can do it, but then I’ll be putting both our lives in the hands of these kids down here, and I don’t think you want me to do that.”
Janie shook her head and slowly descended. When her foot touched the ground, she felt unsteady. She shot her hand out, and it landed on the well-muscled arm of the man before her.
“Are you okay?” he asked, drawing his brows together.
She nodded and closed her eyes as she waited for the stars to disappear. “I’ll be fine if you can just give me a minute.”
She felt the pressure of his hand as he guided her to the bleachers and helped her sit down.
“Place your head between your knees.”
“Are you sure? I mean won’t that make me more dizzy?”
“Are you going to question everything I say?”
Obeying his firm words, Janie placed her head between her knees.
“Now breathe real deep. Give it a few minutes and then lift your head real slow. I’ll be right beside you when you come up.”
The deep breaths calmed her rapid pulse, and when she opened her eyes, the stars were gone. She lifted her head slowly and stared at his face. He smiled, showing a row of perfectly white teeth.
“Do you feel okay?” He’d positioned his arms on either side of her, like in a big hug, so if she toppled in either direction he was ready to catch her. Staring at his face, she found she couldn’t answer.

“A great read! Real, likable, and relatable characters. I loved this story it was filled with drama, suspense, and love…but there were 2 things that stood out…the 1st was the way Felicia incorporated God into real life it really is more about the way you act not just what you say the 2nd was the bringing to light the real danger of human trafficking that goes on in this world still today that as Americans we are pretty blinded to.” –Danielle Williams, reader
