Book 2 in the Defenders of Hope Series centers around Clint and Sara Rollins. Clint takes a bullet while trying to rescue a child and as a result comes face to face with something unexpected that changes the lives of everyone one around them.

Cancer is something Sara Rollins is very familiar with. As an oncologist she always encourages her patients not to lose hope. But now the ugly monster has landed on her doorstep. Will she be able to follow her own advice?

Clint has always been a strong leader, both physically and spiritually. How will he handle what God has set before him?
Is his faith really strong enough to carry them through this difficult trial?

This is an emotionally charged story yet filled with hope and encouragement. The suspense of tracking down a serial killer kept me on the edge of my seat. I COULD NOT put it down!

One thing I REALLY enjoyed about the book is that it picked up where RANDSOMED DREAMS left off. Though Clint and Sara are the main focus, there is a lot of interaction with the other characters that you've gotten to know. You can read Healing Promises as a stand alone and not feel left out, but I think reading Randsomed Dreams first will really enrich the story.

I highly recommend this book. You can feel that Amy puts her heart and soul into her writing. It comes through on every page. ( )

A FBI agent is trying to hunt down a child predator. Unfortunely, he is diagnosed with cancer so he has to leave much of the investigation to others. So half of this book is about the guys emotional ups and downs as he battles cancer, the other is about the investigation and the drama that ensues when they track the predator down--but he targets on of their own.
The premise of this story seemed pretty far fetched to me, and while I appreciate the way it was used to explore some heavy spiritual questions about suffering it was hard to swallow at times. Fans of Karen Kingsbury's emotionally laden fiction may enjoy this, though her stories are better written. ( )

It went into detail about cancer and showed it from different aspects. By writing a mystery around it, it made a detail-heavy book into interesting reading. Highly recommend it. However, it does allude that God was the one who " took" the loved ones away, which I disagree with.

"When FBI Agent Clint Rollins takes a bullet during a standoff, it might just save his life. But not even the ugly things he's seen during his years working in the Crimes Against Children Unit could prepare him for the overwhelming powerlessness of hospital tests revealing an unexpected diagnosis. If only Sara weren't retreating into doctor mode...he needs his wife now more than ever. Sara Rollins is an oncologist with a mission--beating cancer when she can, easing her patients' suffering at the very least. Now the life of her tall Texan husband is at stake. She never let the odds steal her hope before, but in this case, the question of God's healing promises is personal. Can she hold on to the truth she claimed to believe? As Clint continues to track down a serial kidnapper despite his illness, former investigations haunt his nightmares, pushing him beyond solving the case into risking his life and career. Clint struggles to believe God is still the God of miracles. Especially when he needs not one, but two. Everything in his life is reduced to one all-important question: Can God be trusted?"… (more)
