The last time Brody Clark left the Rivers, she walked away from her lifeher foolish dreams, her few friends, and the secrets she'd kept from everyone. For ten years she'd told herself there was nothing in her past she cared aboutnot the family who'd given her a home or the one girl she never stopped thinking about. But now she’s back as part of the new medevac flight crew, for at least as long as it takes to finally bury her ghosts.
Val Valentine, DVM, planned on a big city boutique vet practice with high profile clients, easy hours, and lucrative profits. All until the man who was more father to her than her own asks for her help, and she ends up back in the backwater where all she has are bad memories.
Brody figures cutting her ties to the past would be a hell of a lot easier if she could only avoid the woman she’s never been able to forget. Since Val never even knew she was alive back in high school, that shouldn’t be too hard now. When their lives collide, both women discover what might have been is closer than they think.

This was the fifth book in the Rivers Community series, and like the others it was a great read. Love to the Rescue centered on two characters, Brody and Val, that had roots in this community before taking off for the Army and college, respectively. Their current jobs, a flight medic and veterinarian, brought them back to this community. However, not everyone welcomed their return and unresolved past issues resurfaced. This was an enjoyable story. The medical aspect of it just added to my enjoyment. The characters, both main and secondary, were interesting and engaging. Brody and Val were very likable and their magnetism toward each other was very well written. Some of the secondary characters were from previous books. (I recommend reading the previous books, but the author does explain their connection so the reader is not confused.) I liked the continuation of Blake’s story (a transsexual) and his progress thus far. The interactions between Blake and his friends were also very positive and encouraging, especially with how they dealt with bullies. I applaud the author for creating such a character that teenagers, who are facing a similar situation, can possibly relate to and know they are not alone. Whenever I read a book by this author, all my other plans for the day go awry simply because Radclyffe engages her reader from the first to last page. Well written and highly recommended!
