Elizabeth “Liz” Thompson liked her quiet, predictable life with her son. When she witnesses something horrifying and dangerous, they are forced into hiding. She seeks refuge in the small community of Isle of Hope, Georgia only to find that her life and her heart are still hanging in the balance.
Officer Jake Andrews, dedicated his life to protect and serve the people of Savannah. In the back of his mind always wondering “what if?”. The arrival of a young woman from his past forces him to face a long-buried secret, that will change how he sees his future.

As danger comes to Georgia, Liz & Jake must learn to trust God and each other, to see their way out of the situation.

My Review:                                                        "Finding Hope In Savannah" by Melissa Wardwell is a book that once I read the first page I was hooked! '

"Finding Hope In Savannah" by Melissa Wardwell is a mystery but it is also a Romance. 

This story shows that God uses our mistakes and past sins to bring us a better tomorrow.

At one point in the book I was literally not waiting to finish it because I was afraid that I wasn't going to like what was going to be the result of a character's action.  I wish I could tell you what happened and if I liked the result or not but now that would be telling and I can't because I want you to read this story for yourself.

If you have read and liked Melissa Wardwell's other books I know you will really like this one. Finding Hope In Savannah is my favorite of her books.

Yes, the book is fiction but it really spoke to me about fear and I am going to share something a quote  from the book, " Fear is a tool that Satan uses to keep you from reaching your potential in Christ. How?  By Keeping you from seeing the beauty in the life He has given you. If you are constantly thinking about all the bad in the world or in your life, you will never see the everyday miracles."  

Jake and Liz meet 13 year ago and then lost touch untill danger brought then together, but they never forgot each other.

This book has mystery and love and humor and motorcycle rides. And shows how God works all things for our good. 

I am giving "Finding Hope In Savannah" by Melissa Wardwell 5 stars.

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Melissa Wardwell

Finding myself though “Finding Hope in Savannah”

Writing this book opened my eyes to quite a few things about myself. It opened a door to a need to discover new places and try new things. To step outside of my shell and not be afraid to discover what I am capable of as a wife, mother, and a Christian Woman. In one scene, I have “Liz” talking
about how she wishes she could be brave enough to face things without being so fearful of the outcome. I was reminded that when we are moving in Christ’s will for our lives, there is nothing to fear. When I came up with the idea for “Finding Hope in Savannah” I wanted a location that was unlike any place I have ever been. All my other books take place in my area. So, I set out to find images of some place warm and southern. I came across images of this little community on the outskirts of Savannah Georgia called Isle of Hope. I loved the looks of this little haven so much, I made it the location of this book.

Writing the descriptions on the location was a bit of a stretch of my imagination. I hadn’t seen it, smelled it, or touched it in any way. The writing of this book just so happened to be the same year as when our family would be driving to Florida for a family vacation. After expressing my frustration in not getting the feel of the place right, my darling husband suggested leaving a bit earlier and spending some time in Savannah on the way down. I am so glad we did and I discovered for myself why it is considered the most beautiful city in the United States. This book isn’t just a love story or a story about a woman in hiding, but about a single mother of a tween boy who is trying her best to find her way in this world. Having two teen boys of my own I know how fun, as well as gross, boys can be but to get the right mind set for “Liz” I had to do some homework. It took watching and talking to my friends who are single mothers, hear their concerns about life and managing their time. I admire those who have to play both roles every day and still have a smile on their faces. With my husband’s job, I am on my own with the kids part of the time, but it is only part time. I couldn’t imagine raising my three all by myself. My hats off to all the single mommies of the world.

  3. I also like to live a quiet and a predictable life. It was quite a shock when my hubby died in July. I am trusting God that I will get through this time of change in my life. I spend a lot of time reading.
