[Blog tour & Review] Healed by Love (The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor #1)by Melissa Foster


Book #1 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Book #13 The Bradens series, Love in Bloom #25

Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love.

Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.

THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**




EEK! I get to read the Bradens again! Healed By Love is from the Love in Bloom series (#25) and is #13 of The Bradens! That’s a lot of Braden books for me to catch up on,  this one features the Braden cousins of Peaceful Harbor. I loved Crashing Into Love which was my first introduction to the Braden men and I couldn’t wait to read Healed by Love.

Nate is a war veteran who went to war with his best friend Rick Fisher – Nate watched Jewel, Ricks sister grown up along side them and basically loved her from afar. Now he is home and he feeling so guilty about Ricks death (this isn’t much of a spoiler I promise) that he feels he can’t have anything with Jewel without coming clean about that happened that fateful day that Rick died.

Jewel has also loved Nate from afar, growing up around him and since she has spent most of teenage years upwards looking after her siblings she hasn’t had much life experience when it comes to guys, so when Nate comes home she starts to have feelings for him all sparked from a kiss they shared 2 years prior on New Years

They both go through the whole does s/he like me or not turmoil in their heads at the start and I was like “just do it all ready!” 🙂 We see Jewel grow as a person in her own right during this book which I thought was great. She comes to accept her fears and starts to live life.

This is yet another fantastic book by Melissa, I don’t know how she does it but she better not stop. Ever.
