Welcome to the blog tour for Turn to Me by Becky Wade.
About the Book
Guilt has defined Luke Dempsey’s life, but it was self-destructiveness that landed him in prison. When his friend and fellow inmate lay dying shortly before Luke’s release, the older man revealed he left a string of clues for his daughter, Finley, that will lead her to the treasure he’s hidden. Worried that she won’t be the only one pursuing the treasure, he gains Luke’s promise to protect her until the end of her search.
Spunky and idealistic, Finley Sutherland is the owner of an animal rescue center and a defender of lost causes. She accepts Luke’s help on the treasure hunt while secretly planning to help him in return–by coaxing him to embrace the forgiveness he’s long denied himself.
As they draw closer to the final clue, their reasons for resisting each other begin to crumble, and Luke realizes his promise will push him to the limit in more ways than one. He’ll do his best to shield Finley from unseen threats, but who’s going to shield him from losing his heart?

In My Opinion
For fans of Becky Wade who have been waiting for Luke’s story, it is worth the wait. Turn to Me brings Luke home to Misty River to fulfill a promise he made while in prison. And of course, it’s not as simple as he expects it to be.
Luke is a character who had me both smiling at his moodiness about so many things (Finley, the dogs, Finley, the treasure hunt, Finley, his former friends, did I mention Finley?) while empathizing with him and wanting his hurting heart to feel. Finley and Agatha the puppy aren’t about to let him wallow, though, despite how many times he pushes them away. Finley’s a woman who loves God, her animals, and her town. And she’s determined to help Luke while he’s helping her.
Luke Dempsey was a tragic and thorny case. Many would say he was a lost cause. Thing was, she had a soft spot for lost causes.
Wade writes characters with such personality, you can’t help but become friends with them by the end of her books. In Turn to Me, she also gives readers a mystery to solve, which makes an already engaging book difficult to put down. In addition, we get a brand-new perspective of what happened with the Miracle Five during the earthquake and how Luke still carries so much guilt. If that’s not enough for you, the author also gives us the rest of Ben’s story.
The most dangerous thing he’d have to deal with on this hunt… was her.
While it sounds like there’s a lot going on in this book, Wade balances it so well, you are never confused or backtracking to figure out what’s going on. And the end of this book and series was everything I hoped it would be.
