Finding Hope

Sometimes your reality can be scarier than fiction.

Nick Weston thought his former girlfriend’s unexpected marriage was his biggest problem.

That is until a beautiful, brilliant doctor suspects him of murdering his daughter.

 Dr. Dakota Crenshaw is a DNA detective. She uses biological science to track down murderers. She knows what it’s like to be the victim of a horrendous crime. Even so, sometimes, things are not as they seem.

 Nick tells Dakota he’s never been a father. She’s inclined to believe him, but if he didn’t kill the precious toddler, who did?

 If you like romances filled with family drama and suspense, you’ll love this clean and wholesome mystery.

Finding Hope is the fourth book in the Hidden Hearts — Protection Unit series. It can be read as a standalone novel but is better understood when read as part of the series.

What Readers Say

Crawford’s gentle, loving, family of characters is just what a reader needs to remind him or herself that it is not necessarily as grim and as heartless out there as we are led to believe. Yes, we can all make stupid choices in life and we may have faced high hurdles in our journey but there is always love and the redemptive power of that love shines through all of Mary Crawford’s wonderful books. In this genre she has no peer and I can make no higher recommendation than that. Another superb read from a master of flawed characterisation.

Grant Leishman on Finding Hope

“I laughed and cried right along with the characters. I was a first time Mary Crawford reader but this well not be my last.”
Amanda on Heart Wish

“Can you give more than 5 stars!! Joy and Tiers has become one of my favorites. You will fall in love with Heather and Ty! This is a realistic couple who you will move you to the core as you follow their journey.”
Michelle Storer on Joy and Tiers

“This. Was. Insanely. Incredible. And. Phenomenal. Seriously. This is the best book I’ve read of Crawford’s. I think it blew the others out of the water. The way things were handled (deaf community, sexual assault, following dreams, overcoming, etc) was just perfect. This was the perfect story. It was real. It was gritty. It was lovely. It was a decadent read and I never wanted it to end.

Michaela on So the Heart Can Dance

“The characters were very relatable and very human in their responses to situations. This author is very good at bringing the reader into the story and identifying with her characters. Jade and Declan were both just normal people, with flaws, who were desperately seeking to find themselves.”
Rea on Hearts of Jade

“I consider myself to be somewhat of a Scrivener expert, and have even created and sold comprehensive courses teaching people how to get the most from the software. Mary was actually one of the students on my courses, but wow! She was far surpassed me with her detailed knowledge of Scrivener’s awesome capabilities, and I cannot recommend this book enough! If you want to learn Scrivener from a fellow author who is using it every day, I can think of no better person than Mary to hold your hand and show you exactly how to get most from the software and make it powerfully go to work to improve and increase your writing and publishing productivity.”
