A Rush of Light
A RUSH OF LIGHT is the story of Callie Turner. When she was sixteen her father was murdered but the crime was never solved. Callie became a cop with a mistrust of lawyers. Due to an accident, she is on a disability leave from her job, and trying to start a new career at her father's old inn. Nick Messina saved Callie's life the day her father was murdered. A devout Christian, but a burned out lawyer, Nick has plenty of reasons not to trust cops. Filling in at his uncle's service station, he is surprised to discover Callie opening up the old inn across the street. Then his uncle is shot outside the same inn where Callie's father was killed years ago. Callie wants justice this time, though she suspects Nick and his uncle may have been involved in some crooked scheme as the shooting appears to be a planned hit. Thinking she can solve the crime, she instead finds herself protecting Nick from danger. Worse than that, she finds herself fighting to protect her heart from Nick. While attracted to Callie, Nick has promised himself that he will never be more than a friend to someone who is not a believer, but as the quest for the perpetrator leads into more danger Nick discovers he has a lot more to learn about faith and Callie learns that when there is no hope left the only way out is prayer.
