People can’t be trusted. 

Animals always made more sense than humans did to marine biologist Skye Youngblood. After her mother’s suicide, she left Alabama and never looked back. These days, she pours her heart into protecting nature’s sea creatures. When she returns to Dauphin Island, Alabama, for a temporary manatee migration study, her dark past is much too close. She can’t let her guard down. But how can she keep her heart hidden when a kind man with a genuine smile makes her want a fresh start? 

Charter fishing pays the bills for widower Pete Thompson and his little girl, but like his father, a pastor, Pete can’t help but fish for men. Only, after growing up under constant scrutiny as a preacher’s kid, Pete’s ways are a bit more unconventional. And the bulk of his life revolves around raising his precious daughter. 

When he witnesses the car wreck of a new marine biologist on the island, it doesn’t take a genius to see that more than just her physical pain needs tending. Pete feels called to help Skye find true healing, but he’s navigating dangerous waters. And he’s not at all sure he’ll walk away unscathed. 

My thoughts: I have enjoyed all of the books in this series and getting to know the characters from each one. Janet Ferguson is a gifted writer who doesn't shy away from tough subjects. In Skye's story (whose sister is features in Star Rising) we learn a bit more about the abusive relationship that their step-father inflicted on them and the scars that it left behind. While this book deals with some horrible abuse, the author handles it with care and doesn't go into a lot of detail. 
I loved the characters. I could understand how hard it was for Skye to trust and how Peter struggles with losing his wife and not giving into fear that something will happen to his little girl. Both characters are flawed, but work through those flaws as they get to know one another and learn to lean on God. 
This is a wonderful story! It works as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading the series in order to fully appreaciate the characters.
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
