Sometimes getting lost is the best way home . . .
 
After a painful youth spent in foster homes, Special Forces soldier Edward Giordano has all but given up on love. Returning to New York from a dangerous mission in Costa Rica with no one to welcome him home, he knows he must find a way through his bitterness and embrace faith, or he’s destined for misery and loneliness. But he never expects that saving someone else’s life might help him save his own…
 
Audra Lorenzo is a first-year school teacher with a bright future. All she’s missing is a man to share her happiness. Her father wants her to rekindle her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, but she can’t stop thinking about the handsome, kind, and courageous soldier who rescued her from a near-deadly car accident…
 
Edward too, has not stopped not thinking of Audra. After making peace with God and with his difficult past, he’s ready to re-connect with her and reveal his feelings. Edward knows that opening his heart will mean risking pain, but he’s prepared for whatever comes—from a perilous deployment to Audra’s meddling father…

MY REVIEW:  He steps from the plane and there are happy people running to his comrades but no one is waiting for him with a sign to welcome him home.  No one is there to give him a hug with tears of joy.   He always felt alone....and now on his return from a major difficult assignment in Costa Rica, things are no different.  In fact, they may even hurt more.  So his plan is to hide away and be like a hermit until he is scheduled to return to base.   But God has other plans when a pretty, young school teacher has a car accident that just happens to occur near him and she has her young niece along with her.   He has to rescue them as they are out in the middle of nowhere.   Sparks fly between Audra and Edward, and they're not just coming from the fireplace.  
           Who doesn't love to read about a hero?  and it's even better when the hero is an American soldier.  Will Edward and Audra find the love they're both looking for?  the love that they really need to complete them?   or will they continue to be hurt and living a lift without a loving, caring partner?  Lovers of romance novels will be thrilled to curl up with a cup of tea and find out the answers to all these questions and more.   
         I rated this book 4 stars.
         This book is a gift from the publisher and netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

About the Author:

Irene Onorato was born and raised in Bronx, New York. Her father, a first-generation American whose parents were born in Italy, was an Army veteran who had served with the 178th combat engineers during WWII. He told numerous stories of battles, hardships, tragedies and triumphs. The glimpses he gave into the hearts of many American warriors would later become the inspiration for much of Irene’s writings.

In 1972, a few months after graduating high school, Irene met James Onorato, a soldier who had just returned from Vietnam. After dating two weeks, they married, raised three children, and are still happily married today.

Irene and James, both radiation protection technicians, retired from the nuclear power industry in 2014 and now reside in Louisiana.
