The Rescue

The Rescue
An Inn at Eagle Hill Novella
(The eBook Shorts)
Suzanne Woods Fisher
May 2014/55 pages/$1.99

He’s taking a chance on love . . . and there’s no plan B.

Will Stoltz has returned to Stoney Ridge with a clear plan. He’s opening a wild bird rescue center and is determined to rekindle his fizzled romance with Jackie Colombo, the veterinarian who stole his heart. But nothing is working out as Will planned. The leased building for the rescue center is a disaster, his funding is rapidly dwindling, and Jackie Colombo has disappeared without a trace.

When an injured eagle is found in a pasture near the Inn at Eagle Hill, Will is desperate to prove to himself, to his skeptical father, and to everyone else that his mission has not been in vain. But even the best laid plans are no match for fate.

I am loving Suzanne Woods Fisher's Inn at Eagle Hill series, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review a bonus e-novella about one of the secondary characters in this series. Although novella plots are generally limited by the brevity of the story, Fisher makes every word count. While I didn't care much for Will in some of the earlier books, I definitely came to like him more in this story. The Rescue will warm your heart.

[I do wish the book summary had been worded differently to indicate that "...the best laid plans are no match for God's designs" rather than using the word fate. It may be semantics, but fate has always sounded random and dire to me.]
