As fellow writers have come to know, I not only write novels, I read widely in many genres, and review a lot of what I read, to the point I’ve been getting review requests from other authors sometimes three and four a week. I don’t accept all, of course, or I’d never get my own writing done, but if I like the concept and the query letter is well written, I usually say yes. My goal for 2017 is to read AND REVIEW a minimum of 30 books. These two don’t count, as I read them and reviewed them in late December, 2016.
Patricia Keelyn gives readers an insightful look into the lives of a couple who married too young, for the worst reason, and parted for reasons equally wrong, but completely understandable. Reece, from a family of wealth, is hard-working and driven. Sarah, with a background unacceptable to his parents, abandons not only Reece, but her ailing infant son, determined to make a life for herself apart from them, to give them all a chance at a better life. When she realizes how wrong her actions were, she sees how much too late it is. But, with children involved, can she do anything but fight to regain what’s hers?
P.R. Adams presents a well-written tale. The author clearly has a good grasp not only of battles and the psychological effect on the participants, but also uses the language well.
Jack Rimes is a warrior. It’s what he does. It’s what he knows. He fights for his unit, his team, and his country. But when he suspects he’s being drawn deeper and deeper into the unknown, when he begins to suspect and doubt those he has a.ways trusted–himself included, he becomes a troubled man. Still, he fights on, trying to right wrongs, even those he might have unwittingly committed, because he is a man of honor.
