Ms. Smith has a way of writing that captures my attention from the first word. This book was no different. In all honesty I was a little nervous to read this one, it is told in a third person POV and I usually have a lot of trouble with that. So glad to say I didn’t even bat an eyelash on this one. She tackled a hard POV to write and nailed it! I was so taken in by the story and the broken souls in the plot that I often forgot all about it!
Restoring Hope is a story of redemption, finding one’s true soul-mate, over coming adversaries, fear and finding HOPE.
Not one to stay around long enough for her nail-polish to dry, you meet Hope. Scared, alone and existing…not living just floating through her days waiting…dreading and running. Always having to look behind her she lost sight of what could be right in front of her…Stumbling into a new town after being found in last one, she finds a job, friends and Nic…knowing that her life can’t manage these roadblocks she plans to run…and she does straight into her destiny!
Nic is broken, hollow, and missing a part of his life that he can’t get back no matter how much he drinks and regrets. A wife that wasn’t worth her weight, a daughter that couldn’t fight her demons and the one saving grace…his son. He is determined to be there for his son, but other than that he barely is surviving…until her!
Together these two fight for each other – with each other, for survival, forgiveness and a life. This is a beautiful love story, with a thriller-esque feel to it. Never knowing exactly what is waiting for you around the corner or next page. C.P. Smith has quickly become an auto-buy author for me, she writes dominate, strong males and females, and I can’t wait to read what she brings to the table next…
