People can’t be trusted.
Animals always made more sense than humans did to marine biologist Skye Youngblood. After her mother’s suicide, she left Alabama and never looked back. These days, she pours her heart into protecting nature’s sea creatures. When she returns to Dauphin Island, Alabama, for a temporary manatee migration study, her dark past is much too close. She can’t let her guard down. But how can she keep her heart hidden when a kind man with a genuine smile makes her want a fresh start?
Charter fishing pays the bills for widower Pete Thompson and his little girl, but like his father, a pastor, Pete can’t help but fish for men. Only, after growing up under constant scrutiny as a preacher’s kid, Pete’s ways are a bit more unconventional. And the bulk of his life revolves around raising his precious daughter.
When he witnesses the car wreck of a new marine biologist on the island, it doesn’t take a genius to see that more than just her physical pain needs tending. Pete feels called to help Skye find true healing, but he’s navigating dangerous waters. And he’s not at all sure he’ll walk away unscathed.

IN MY OPINION
Janet W. Ferguson is a go-to favorite author when it comes to character-driven stories. Healing Skye is another book by Ferguson that burrowed deep and settled in with its hurting characters and slow-burn romance.
Skye’s backstory broke my heart. So much pain, hurt, and fear she’s carrying. She’s understandably distrustful when she first meets Pete. But his consistency and two little girls help Skye heal.
The romance in this book proceeds at the absolute perfect pace as Skye learns to trust herself and trust in God’s grace and redemption. Pete and Skye are perfect for each other and you don’t want to miss their journey as they figure that fact out.
