Call to Love
by Mary A. Felkins
Publisher: Prism Lux
Available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited

Summary: Tracy Cassidy, a fiercely independent ED nurse, must choose between her dream job or staying in her hometown to help support her mother’s faltering ministry. Even if it means risking her heart in love with the kind of man she said she’d never marry. Why sign up to be Laurelton’s next cop widow?

Tom DeLaney, a hyper-vigilant cop and new hire from Texas, is wearied by years of failed rescue attempts to save his marriage to his ex. A free man, he moves to the foothills of North Carolina. Thing is, he hadn’t expected to fall for Tracy, his supervisor’s sister. But when his adolescent son is diagnosed with a chronic illness, he faces the risk of loving another woman with keep-out issues.

Fears related to the death of Tracy’s cop father and Tom’s inability to forgive the past threaten to sabotage any chance at love.

To trust again means surrender. Will they risk their hearts and answer the call?

My Review ~ ⭐⭐⭐

First of all I think for as debut author Mary Felkins did an excellent job. You can tell that she put her heart into the story and did a lot of research for it.

The story of Tracy and Tom was heartfelt and emotional. Tom and Tracy are both trying to overcome deep hurts and mistakes they have made in their past. They have both sworn off any romantic relationships and are both running away from the fact that God is trying to show them that they need to cry out and let go of those hurts to truly be able to embrace not only a relationship with Him but with each other. The other characters were relatable and lovable as well. I especially loved Tom's son Stephen relationship with his father and Tracy. The story has romance, action and even a bit of suspense. I even teared up a bit. Definitely a book I would recommend.

So why did I give it 3 stars? Like I said I really liked the story and Felkins did an excellent job for her debut novel but at times I felt like time jumped too quick and it confused me in some parts. There were some chapters that I had to go back to make sure I had not missed something because time had passed but I felt like it wasn't conveyed properly.

That being said I look forward to whenever she writes another story. I believe she will just continue getting better!

Some of my favorite quotes from this book:

"when love comes calling, a person's got to have the guts to answer."

"Whether times are good or bad, God has allowed them both. He never promises hurt won't find you."

"He makes a way through the pain, not around it. So let your soul embrace His plan."

I definitely recommend this book and I hope you enjoy it

About the Author:Mary A. Felkins is an inspirational romance author, administrator for Seriously Write writer's blog, and contributor to an on-line Bible study magazine. In 2015, she was awarded a bronze medal winner for her scene submission to My Book Therapy's Frazier contest. Call to Love is her debut, inspirational romance novel.
She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and My Book Therapy.
Raised in Houston, Texas (and forever a Lone Star girl), Mary and her husband Bruce moved to the foothills of North Carolina in 1997. They are blessed to parent four young adult children. She can be lured from her writer's cave if presented with a large, unopened bag of Peanut M&Ms or to watch an episode of Fixer Upper. A surprise appearance by her teen idol, Donny Osmond, would also do the trick, although she’d likely pass out.
If, upon introduction, she likes your first or last name, expect to see it show up in one of her novels.
