Great Inspirational Suspense -- Collateral Damage
Lynette Eason is one of the greats at inspirational suspense, and this may be her best yet. The action and suspense started on the first page, in the first paragraph, and kept growing throughout the story.
It is sometimes easy to get lost or confused when multiple threads are introduced in one story. Early in this story, I got so involved in one thread that I was almost surprised when another came back up. There was just enough evidence, though, to assure me that all the pieces would come together in some way, without spoiling anything that was yet to be discovered.
The characters were complex, exciting individuals who played their parts well, often bringing new elements of mystery and suspense. I look forward to getting to know them better in the next installment in the series.
Thanks to Revell Reads for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.
About the Book
They thought they left the fight behind on the battlefield.
But their greatest struggles are just beginning.
Honorably discharged from the Army after an explosion nearly killed her, former military psychiatrist Brooke Adams has set up shop to help others, but her days of helping military personnel are over. She's got her own battles to fight from her time overseas, and she's not equipped to take on more.
Former Army Special Ops Sergeant First Class Asher James could handle anything that war sent his way. The only thing that scares him now is sleep. As the shadows close in, the nightmares begin.
Finally convinced that he needs help, Asher makes an appointment with a counselor. When he arrives at her office, she isn't there--but a dead body is. When it becomes clear that Brooke was the real target of the attack--and that her secrets go even deeper than his own--Asher vows to protect her no matter what.
