Waiting for Dawn is the bittersweet story of how Lacey Galloway, PhD and math geek, went undercover in the war-torn Middle East of 1991 to rescue Jim Micah, who she thinks might be in love with her… Accompanying her is John Montgomery, Lacey’s ex-boyfriend and Micah’s best friend since high school. Only John doesn’t seem to be acting like an ex-boyfriend, more like a current boyfriend…
Those who have read Flee the Night will know how the story ends (well, this is a prequel!). For those who haven’t yet had that pleasure, I won’t spoil it for you. Suffice to say that I heard rumours of a novella-length prequel several years ago and never found it, despite scouring the internet. Well, here it is, and although it was a short read, it is probably worth the wait.
Those who have read the rest of the Team Hope series will enjoy this for the background it provides to Micah’s character. Those who haven’t read the other books have a treat ahead, as these were the books that got me hooked on Christian Romantic Suspense. Read them in order: Waiting for Dawn, Flee the Night, Escape to Morning and Expect the Sunrise.

Review 2 for Waiting for Dawn: A Team Hope Novella - eBook
This novella is a prequel to Flee The Night Jim Micah has loved Lacey Galloway for a decade. The day he introduced her to his best friend, John Montgomery, will always be his biggest mistake. John was always out for adventure and Lacey was like that too. As a Green Beret out on a mission, Jim and two others have been taken captive. Thoughts of ay. Lacey and remembering Psalm 86 have kept him going. Lacey figured John and her were over for eight months now when she gets the news that Jim is missing in action. She pulls strings to get to Turkey. From there John and Wild Will put a mission together with Lacey to find and rescue Micah. Lacey keeps hoping Micah will say anything to give her hope he loves her. He wants to but then John is always in the picture. Finally something happens that takes all hope away. The story does not end in this book, it only begins it seems.
