ABOUT THE BOOK
Guidance counselor Heather Browning is desperate. She needs a mentor to help Simon, a disabled student who is struggling at Gordon Falls High School. Unfortunately, hotshot Max Jones is her only option. Confrontational and cavalier, Max uses his flashy persona to hide the bitterness he's felt since his life-changing accident. Perpetually cautious, Heather finds Max's bad-boy bravado as intriguing as it is infuriating. But as Heather and Max work together to build Simon's self-confidence, they begin to trust each other. Max has never been slow and careful with anything. Can he be gentle with Heather's heart?
Gordon Falls: Hearts ablaze in a small town.

Love Inspired books are a known quantity, and a known quality. When a reader of inspirational fiction picks up one of these smallish books, s/he knows what it will be and how it will end pretty much right away. The journey to the happily-ever-after, though, is the fun part.
Enter Allie Pleiter and A Heart to Heal. Max "Hot Wheels" Jones and Heather Browning's romance is the most different Love Inspired story I think I've ever read. So if you're looking for a different kind of story in this genre of known quantities, choose Allie's August novel. I recommend it for a nice end-of-summer story.
