Turn to Me by Becky Wade is the final book in the Misty River series. It gives us the story of Luke Dempsey, the Miracle Five member who remained outside of the friend group that had been established after the earthquake.
Luke was a gruff, seemingly unapproachable person but you could easily see that there was something redeemable in him because of his willingness to keep a promise he’d made to a friend.
Finley was the exact opposite of Luke. She was bubbly, outgoing, and surrounded herself with animals and people. Whereas Luke was happiest when left alone, at least, that’s what he told himself.
Luke and Finley were a perfect foil for each other. He was lost and hurt, she had experience in earning the love and trust of lost things (okay, mostly animals but Finley used her skills to draw Luke out of his shell with great results).
I enjoyed watching their romance develop as their friendship grew under the backdrop of a treasure hunt.
One of the great things about Turn to me is that Ben finally gets his happily ever after. He finds a woman who appreciated him and was a much better fit for him than Leah. I enjoyed Ben and Amira’s story but would have loved to see more of what happened after their friendship turned into a romantic relationship.
Readers will be reminded that our pasts are redeemable. Jesus paid the ultimate cost for our sins and because He did, we get the chance to make better choices for our future.

About Turn to Me
His promise will cost him far more than he imagined.
Guilt has defined Luke Dempsey’s life, but it was self-destructiveness that landed him in prison. When his friend and fellow inmate lay dying shortly before Luke’s release, the older man revealed he left a string of clues for his daughter, Finley, that will lead her to the treasure he’s hidden. Worried that she won’t be the only one pursuing the treasure, he gains Luke’s promise to protect her until the end of her search.
Spunky and idealistic, Finley Sutherland is the owner of an animal rescue center and a defender of lost causes. She accepts Luke’s help on the treasure hunt while secretly planning to help him in return–by coaxing him to embrace the forgiveness he’s long denied himself.
As they draw closer to the final clue, their reasons for resisting each other begin to crumble, and Luke realizes his promise will push him to the limit in more ways than one. He’ll do his best to shield Finley from unseen threats, but who’s going to shield him from losing his heart?
