Redeeming Cade by Susan Crawford

Cade is an ex-con who found God and is changing his life.  He's now an assistant director at the local gospel rescue mission.  He's found his calling in life.  He loves his job and the people there.  He's still a bit of a rule breaker, but he's got a good heart.  That's why he gets upset when he finds out there is new development going on and they are going to tear down the mission and use the land for the project...

Redbud Press allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

When he finds out they're holding a public hearing on it, he attends the meeting.  The young woman talking is the up and coming council member who tells everyone how much the improved building and commerce will help the area.  They won't let him ask any questions but he braces her as she's leaving the stage.  To stop an argument from ensuing, she agrees to come to the shelter and tour it.  Once she has, a little girl adopts her as a special friend and displacing the shelter people becomes a little harder...

There's a good message in this book about following your heart and living your dream.  It also has a lot of "God talk".  Both main characters have issues to work through but it ends happily ever after.  That's the kind of ending I like.
