When they told her about Southern hospitality, no one mentioned human trafficking.
The move to Bay Town, Mississippi was supposed to be a fresh start for single-mom Melanie and her daughter, Lacy. The quiet Southern town offers a nice relief after the frenetic-paced life of Los Angeles, but something sinister lurks beneath the surface.
Her bridal business struggles to take off, and instead of turning to the Lord, Melanie makes a desperate plea for help--from her ex-husband. Lacey is attacked, and while she is hospitalized, her friend goes missing—a victim of human trafficking out of New Orleans.
With her ex-husband showing true signs of repentance, the pastor she'd begun to fall for taking a step back, and her daughter's friend lost to the animals who stole her, Melanie goes on a desperate, dangerous mission to rescue the girl and get their lives back.
And she'll do it with or without the Lord's help.
How can Melanie find the girls and rescue them without getting caught herself? Why can't she trust the Lord to keep them all safe, and which man in her life is the right one--if either?
Read this heart-gripping, pulse-racing novel and see how the Lord's hand is on us, even when He seems so very far away.
The author sets the stage early on: describing Melanie's business culture and alluding to possible pending monetary problems and family issues, which unfold like rose petals in a wedding bouquet. Melanie struggles to balance work, her daughter, and family woes while maintaining her faith, which encircles her like a bow on a wedding bouquet. An easy read, fun to become immersed in the beautiful setting, and very current.
