“Forever Safe” ~ Book Review

Jun 6, 2016 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Jody Hedlund’s newest release, Forever Safe, the fourth book in her “Beacons of Hope” series.


As is my custom, if I could ask Jody one question about Forever Safe it would be — “Why a Massachusetts lighthouse instead of Michigan?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

Heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has everything she wants, including the perfect fiancé. Having left two other men at the altar, Victoria is sure that now she’s found her true love and will finally live happily ever after. As her wedding draws near, however, Victoria’s life is threatened. To keep her safe, Victoria’s father hires a bodyguard. Tom Cushman’s number one priority is protecting his clients, which means no personal entanglements. But he’s never guarded someone as beautiful and winsome as Victoria. After a near-kidnapping, the wedding is cancelled, and Tom hides Victoria at Cape Cod’s Race Point Lighthouse until her attacker can be found. Appointed as assistant light keeper with Victoria posing as his wife, Tom believes the isolation of the lighthouse will keep her safe. As Victoria struggles to live without familiar luxuries, her heart betrays her with growing feelings for her protector. Determined to help Tom stop fleeing from his haunted past, can the runaway bride learn to face her own fears? With the attacker closing in, will both of them ever be able to stop running and find the safety they long for?

Another winning story from Jody!! I have enjoyed her lighthouse series so much, and I was so glad to see that she published a fourth book, bringing the series in a full circle.

I loved that Victoria, the daughter of the heroine in Jody’s novella, had her own story! Victoria tries so hard to fit in with her “rich” lifestyle, but when she was taken from everything she knew, she almost couldn’t tell which life she enjoyed living more.

Tom and Victoria’s relationship was so realistic! Out of all of Jody’s books, I loved the spiritual emphasis that Forever Safe held and also how Jody highlighted the importance of marriage. The natural way that the story progressed, showing a change and maturity in both Tom and Victoria was so beautiful to read about. The story line and the characters a way of keeping me up past midnight in order to finish the book in one sitting!

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
