This is one of those stranger-comes-to-town tales, but since it’s a Nicholas Sparks novel, it’s also a romance. Logan Thibault is a veteran who believes that a photograph that he found in Iraq is his lucky charm. When he comes back to the states, he searches for the woman in the photograph. She is Elizabeth, a divorced mom living in Hampton, near the North Carolina coast. Elizabeth’s grandmother runs a dog training facility in town, where Thibault soon gets a job. Thibault, a veteran of many battles during his years in the Marines, has his demons, and his interest in Elizabeth can be misconstrued. Elizabeth’s ex-husband, Keith Clayton, sets out to discredit Logan. The conflict between Thibault and Clayton builds, putting Elizabeth and her son Ben in danger. In a raging storm the men battles for their lives, and for Ben’s. Thibault’s dog, Zeus, helps to save the day.
