Review: Searching for Harmony

For this review, I chose Searching for Harmony by Kelly Elliott.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
From New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott comes the gut-wrenching story of a love that transcends all odds—and transforms the deepest pain into the brightest hope.
Firefighter and first responder Preston Ward thought he had grown immune to the job’s emotional burns. But when he goes out on a particularly tragic call, he realizes that some scenes are too devastating to forget. And yet, if it weren’t for that terrible night, he never would have met the woman who makes him want to risk his heart.
More than once, Harmony Banks has watched her perfectly ordered world torn apart by fate. Now she’s finding out that what she lost wasn’t as perfect as she thought—and it’s tearing her apart. The only thing that keeps her going is the kindness of a stranger: the firefighter who saved her life the night everything changed.
Preston isn’t like the men who have come before. For one thing, he’s far more genuine. And the love Harmony feels growing between them is almost too intense for her wounded soul. But if she and Preston can push past heartbreak, they’ll find that something incredible awaits in each other’s arms.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

This book grabs you by your emotions right off.  The prologue is so very sad.  Have tissues ready.  

Harmony has her own life torn upside down when a car accident left her the sole survivor.  She lost her husband and her young son.  Harmony has to learn to live without them.  Can Harmony move on with her life?  Can she find love again?  Preston is a firefighter/first responder.  He is the one on the scene of Harmony's accident.  He could not save her husband or child.  Preston is lost and he is so very drawn to Harmony.  The only thing that is keeping Harmony together is the kindness from a stranger, Preston.

I can not wait to read more from Kelly Elliott.  This book was well written with the reader having so many emotions throughout the book!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
