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 and a friend are attacked, and while Lacey 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.


Flipping through her planner, Melanie glanced up and caught him smiling at her. His eyes seemed to shine from behind his dark lashes, and she felt the heat rising in her cheeks again. She dropped her head and, without looking up, asked, “Okay. So, when is the wedding day?”

They discussed the date and some other minor details and planned to meet with the couple soon.

Pastor Brooks stood. “Well, thanks. I’ll be looking forward to working with you. I know you’ll be a big help to them and to me, too.” He extended his hand.

As she shook it, the mere touch of his hand tingled her fingers. She felt like a teenager with a first crush.

He moved to the front of the shop and waved as he left.

Melanie followed but stopped at the door. She leaned out, watching him walk down the sidewalk, and something fell from his back pocket. She ran and picked it up.

“Hey, Pastor Brooks?” Melanie waved her wedding brochure in his direction.

Turning, he strode back and reached to take it, but with a gust of wind, the brochure fluttered to the ground. Both Melanie and Desmond bent to retrieve it and knocked their heads together. Laughing, they reached out, and their hands touched. With a jolt, both released the brochure, and it floated down once again.
