Another sweet Christian romance in the Village of Hope series by Merrillee Whren. Melody is a very confident and competent director of the Village of Hope women’s shelter and is instrumental in organizing fundraisers to keep the facility running. However she’s lost a father, brother, and husband to ‘risky’ situations, and she lives in fear of any activity that may be life threatening. Hudson is the son of a wealthy corporate mogul who tells his son what to do and when to do it. Hudson lives life with zeal and is eager to prove himself on the job or by skydiving out of an airplane. A fundraising event throws Hudson and Melody together but Melody keeps Hudson at a distance, one he is eager to cross if he can figure out why Melody is afraid to take a chance on him. Will trusting God help Melody and Hudson overcome the wall that separates them from each other and from realizing their dreams? I found this to be a sweet, romantic read and found myself cheering for Melody as she tackles something very risky by the end of the book.
