Will she ever be able to stop running, even when she believes she’s finally safe?

Heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has everything she wants, including the perfect fiancé. Having left  two other men at the altar, Victoria is sure that now she’s found her true love and will finally live happily ever after. As her wedding draws near, however, Victoria’s life is threatened. To keep her safe, Victoria’s father hires a bodyguard.

Tom Cushman’s number one priority is protecting his clients, which means no personal entanglements. But he’s never guarded someone as beautiful and winsome as Victoria. After a near-kidnapping, the wedding is cancelled, and Tom hides Victoria at Cape Cod’s Race Point Lighthouse until her attacker can be found. Appointed as assistant light keeper with Victoria posing as his wife, Tom believes the isolation of the lighthouse will keep her safe.

As Victoria struggles to live without familiar luxuries, her heart betrays her with growing feelings for her protector. Determined to help Tom stop fleeing from his haunted past, can the runaway bride learn to face her own fears? With the attacker closing in, will both of them ever be able to stop running and find the safety they long for?

**NOTE: Forever Safe is Book 4 in the Beacons of Hope series but can be read as a standalone novel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lighthouse shelter from the storm Tuesday, July 5, 2016 Forever Safe by Jody Hedlund, © 2016 Beacons of Hope Series, Book Four May, 1876 ~ New York City Victoria Cole has managed to attract a lot of attention. The day of her third attempt at marriage has arrived. Unforeseen, the driver of the carriage to the wedding grounds has been switched and has taken off with her. The driver's plans are foiled, as Victoria hits him in the back with her flying shoe, distracting him right at the bend of the road. The horse takes the occasion to continue forward right to the beach and the carriage wheels are slowed in the sand. Days before the wedding, her father, Henry Cole, of Cole Enterprises, has hired Tom Cushman as her bodyguard. He has his hands full from the beginning. With all of the commotion, and a threatening note left at the house, Henry and Tom devise a plan to keep Victoria safe. A Cape Cod lighthouse becomes the destination much to her peril, without a cook or maid to assist her. What can possibly happen in 30 days? Anything to change the course of Victoria's view of life and alleviate her fears? Learning to cook, sew, and wash and hang clothes become the entry. And, love and acceptance from those around her leaving her room to grow. She finds strengths she never knew she possessed, and unexpected weaknesses that encompass her with joy. Hidden away, she discovers her true self. Tom must come to terms with his past to continue with his today. Guilt taken on beyond what he could have controlled has kept him prisoner. Freedom is ahead for Tom if he will receive the open door to all that is before him. Immediately after the last page, I returned to the beginning and began reading ~ until I noticed I was at page 105! So fun to be absorbed in the story again, with the descriptive writing pulling you in to exactly where they are: new beginnings. Jody Hedlund has written a strong story of forgiveness, acceptance, and the will to go forward. Her characters find in their journey ~*hope*~ attainable with trust and perseverance; a Love that is forever safe. ... Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings! ... Psalm 61:4 NLT ***Thank you to author Jody Hedlund for surprising me with a review copy of Book 4, Forever Safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another wonderful book by Jody This is the 4th book in the Beacons of Hope Series. This story takes place in Cape Cod instead of in Michigan like the rest of the series. The book starts off with Victoria Cole getting ready for her wedding to Nathaniel Winthrop in New York City. Victoria had a bodyguard named Arch because fours years before an enemy of her father's tried to kidnap her. Six weeks before her wedding someone tries to attack Victoria and somehow Arch ends up getting stabbed and has to go to the hospital to recover and he asks his friend Tom Cushman to come and be Victoria's bodyguard until he is well enough to come back. Tom takes Victoria around has she finishes up getting ready for her wedding. On her wedding day, when she is getting into the carriage to go to the church someone tries to kidnap her by being the carriage driver but Victoria throws her shoes at him and she is taken for quite a ride until the carriage goes off the road and Tom gets Victoria back to safety and the wedding gets postponed. Victoria's father and Tom decide it is best if Victoria goes somewhere safe until the threat on her life passes. Tom decides the best place to take her is Race Point Lighthouse where his father is the lightkeeper. Tom and Victoria get married on the boat before it leaves New York City for Cape Cod, so they would not have to pretend they were married and make things easier. Tom went to the lighthouse to be the assistant lightkeeper. Tom's mother lost her feet when Tom was younger so she needs help with some things. Victoria ends up getting close to Tom's mother when she helps Victoria learn to cook and sew. Victoria also learns that you don't need to be rich to be happy and some people are worse off then her (her mother is blind and Tom's mother has no feet) and they are happy. Tom and Victoria end up falling in love with each other while on the island but Victoria ends up planning to marry Nathaniel but before she can divorce Tom and marry Nathaniel, Tom gets hit over the head and Victoria gets kidnapped but she manages to get away and hides until Tom figures out everything and rescues her. They end up renewing their vows at the lighthouse in front of family and friends. Victoria can't believe who is behind the attack and kidnappings. I won't say who so you will have to get a copy of the book to find out for yourself. Thanks Jody for letting me be a part of your infulencer team, keep up the good work and can't wait to read your next book.
