Soft spoken, twenty-eight-year-old Mike Anderson prepares to join his brother on a short-term mission trip to Florida. Here he plans on helping build new facilities for New Hopes Mission Agency. However, before he leaves, Mike learns there was an accident at the building site. Now the person who was injured is missing. Could these two incidents be mere coincidence or is something more sinister at work?
And then there is the five-two spit-fire, Leah Rizzo, with whom he agreed to swap photography projects. Taking her with him could prove to be the colossal mistake of his lifetime—or perhaps God has a plan even in the midst of the mystery that shrouds the project.
Her resolve was fixed. “I’ll come and help you.”
“No,” he said firmly as if he had already made up his mind. “I don’t want you to get hurt.”
No one said ‘no’ to Leah. She jut her chin up. “I may be short, but I can take care of myself. Besides, I know I’ll be able to help you solve this mystery.”
Mike held up his hands as if in self-defense. “I’d feel responsible for you, especially since I’m uncomfortable with all of the unknowns.”
She put her hand on his arm and waited until his blue eyes connected with hers. “Can I ask you something?”
“Do you have any qualms about the project I asked you to shoot for me and BeautyPlus?”
He shook his head. “Not from the details you gave me.”
“Good. Then book me a flight because I’m going with you. Together we can find Bob.” Leah had to hand it to Mike. Not many could hold her stare for as long as he did. She hated the fact that she was the first to look away.
Mike sighed and she held her breath. After what seemed like a lifetime, he rose from the bench and said, “We aren’t professionals. Any sign of danger and you’re on the first flight home. Got it?”
Well, not really, but she wasn’t about to throw away her only chance. She nodded as if she were in total agreement with him.
With a resigned sigh, Mike softly said, “I’ll see what I can do.”
