Lawfully Blessed: Inspirational Christian Contemporary by Evangeline Kelly
He’s a police officer from a huge family. She’s a lonely widow with a son. Will their relationship move beyond friendship this Christmas season?
After graduation, Melody Clarke said goodbye to her high school crush, Grant Brooks, believing she would never see him again. She was moving to the east coast for college, and he planned to remain in Hillcrest, California, to pursue his dream of becoming a police officer.
Ten years later, Melody returned to Hillcrest to raise her son after her husband died. She didn’t count on seeing Grant again, thinking he’d probably moved out of town by now. When Grant pulled Melody over for a safety violation, he asked her to join him for coffee. Melody had always kept them firmly in the friendzone, but after being reacquainted again, she was ready to reconsider.
Meanwhile, a thief was loose in their hometown, and when Melody’s home was broken into, Grant determined to bring the thief to justice. No one stole presents from children and got away with it as long as Grant Brooks was around.
If catching a thief was difficult, convincing Melody that they were destined to be more than friends might be even harder.
Or maybe it wasn’t so hard after all.
