A Healing Spirit by Melissa A. Hanson: 5 of 5 STARS NA Fiction

A Healing Spirit (Riverview #2) by Melissa A. Hanson. August 2015. MAH. Goodreads. Book 1: A Healing Heart

A freak ski accident brings nineteen-year old Mia Kinney within minutes of death. Hurt and scared, Mia is calmed by the southern drawl and clear green eyes of her rescuer.

Twenty-one year old Dylan Blackburn is one of the first Ski Patrol members on the scene. As his patient is airlifted to the local trauma center, he can’t shake her from his thoughts.

As Mia fights for her life, Dylan, is haunted by the blond hair beauty, and knows he needs to make sure she’s going to be okay.

With a troubled past Dylan has vowed never to completely open himself up to another girl, but Mia continues to knock down every wall he’s constructed. When his past arrives at his front door and threatens once again someone that he loves, will Dylan be able to save Mia yet again? Or will he be too late this time?

A story of love, friendship, and the determination to turn a horrible experience into something worthwhile.


Just look at the cover picture! You know you’ll love this book! I read Melissa A. Hanson’s first book a few years ago. This is the 2nd in the series, but it’s from a different character. So you don’t have to read book 1, but you should because it was always a great read! Characters from the first book are in this book too.

I loved reading Mia’s story. She was a tough chicka. I think many of us become super tough when put in terrible situations. I don’t want to give things away, but she had a major injury and a hero. Dylan was the hero that worked where she was injured. I love how the story goes beyond her injury and hospital days. You really get a chance to watch their new relationship. IT WAS SO CUTE!!! squeal I loved so many of their scenes together!

It’s not just a romance story. It has injuries and scary action moments. The story goes into family abuse, not Mia’s family. It’s so sad but very real.

A Healing Spirit by Melissa A. Hanson is a must read for any of you YA or NA contemporary romance fiction lovers!
