Review: Forever Safe

Book Review: Forever Safe, by Jody Hedlund, 5 stars


Heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has everything she wants, including the perfect fiancĂ©. Having left two other men at the altar, Victoria is sure that now she’s found her true love and will finally live happily ever after. As her wedding draws near, however, Victoria’s life is threatened. To keep her safe, Victoria’s father hires a bodyguard.
Tom Cushman’s number one priority is protecting his clients, which means no personal entanglements. But he’s never guarded someone as beautiful and winsome as Victoria. After a near-kidnapping, the wedding is cancelled, and Tom hides Victoria at Cape Cod’s Race Point Lighthouse until her attacker can be found. Appointed as assistant light keeper with Victoria posing as his wife, Tom believes the isolation of the lighthouse will keep her safe.
As Victoria struggles to live without familiar luxuries, her heart betrays her with growing feelings for her protector. Determined to help Tom stop fleeing from his haunted past, can the runaway bride learn to face her own fears? With the attacker closing in, will both of them ever be able to stop running and find the safety they long for?

Review: Forever Safe is book four in the Beacons of Hope series by Jody Hedlund and, like the others, it doesn't disappoint (and, also like the others, it can be read as a stand alone, though I would recommend you to read them all). The story is vibrant and gripping and the characters are so well developed you are almost living and breathing with them too.

I found the beginning of the book a bit harder, but that was just because I didn't really care for Victoria back then - she was just a spoiled brat, and acted like one too. The fact than Tom manages to dig deeper and discover she has a wonderful heart underneath all those frills made me realize he was absolutely right. Appearances can truly be deceiving.

In my opinion, the suspense side of the story is a bit weaker than in previous books, but since Forever Safe passes on all the right messages about love, marriage and trusting in God's plan, it still very much deserves a five star rating. Recommended!

Happy readings and happy 2018,
