Rori's Healing by Dora Hiers


Rori's Healing by Dora Hiers


Dora is a fellow White Rose Publishing author, and I haven’t read her work before, so I was thankful for an opportunity to read this title for review.

Let’s begin with the summary:

Still stinging from the publicity surrounding her father's death, social phobic Rori Harmon prefers the solitude of her animal sanctuary, and accepts that marriage isn’t in her future.

Race car Driver Graham Decker refuses to be wrangled into a relationship by another money-hungry female. On a philanthropy mission, he arrives just in time to assist Rori with a llama birthing, but his appearance thrusts her into the media spotlight again.

Has Graham found a woman who doesn't care how deep his wallet extends? Has Rori finally met a man who will stick around when times get tough? Is healing for a hurting heart finally within Rori's reach?

And now, my review:

Dora has penned a sweet romance. Our heroine runs an animal shelter and tries to stay out of the spotlight. Enter the hero, a nationally renowned race car driver—a celebrity. The hero is tired of others taking advantage of his wealth, but though Rori needs money for her non-profit (the animal shelter), she doesn’t want his. Are these two the perfect match?

One of the story’s themes was overcoming fear—Rori had some challenges. Though readers may not struggle with the same fears, I believe this is a relatable issue. I liked how the hero honored her throughout the story. And I appreciated the spiritual element in this story. The book begins with a Scripture of trusting God no matter what others might do, a lesson our heroine must learn. (see Psalm 56:11)

There were some elements that weren’t my favorites—the llama’s activity when he didn’t like or trust someone. I wouldn’t have minded seeing that element once, but it appeared several times. 

Today is release day! Congratulations, Dora!
