Healed by Love Book Tour (& My Review)


Book #1 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Book #13 The Bradens series, Love in Bloom #25<

Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love.

Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.

THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My thoughts!

Another Melissa Foster Series with those amazingly sexy Braden’s!! We get to meet the COlorado Braden’s cousins in Peaceful Harbor, MD! They sound every bit as good looking & sexy!

This book is centered around Jewel and Nate. Nate grew up knowing Jewel’s family, because he was best friends with Jewel’s older brother, Rick. Rick and Nate entered the military together, and were overseas together. Unfortunately Rick didn’t make it home.

Nate and Jewel had been hiding their feelings for one another for so long and I think that the fact that they had both lost someone they both loved, tremendously, gives this book a depth that I’ve not read in a book in a long time.

When reading a book, I can normally tell what’s going to happen, where the relationships are heading, etc. In this one, while I was correct with my assumption from the beginning, there were parts that really made me think about it & wonder, “Wow, was I wrong?”

I like how Jewel is able to self analyze herself, make herself better, and get a better relationship with her family & Nate in the process!

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a good book! It was honestly an awesome book, and I didn’t want to put it down. I normally am like this with Melissa Foster books, but this one, I read in a span of 12 hours! It was a fantastic book!
