A thrilling companion to Collateral Damage. Sara Denning is an Army journalist taken hostage during an attack on a school in Afghanistan, her capture brings her face to face with Gavin Black, a man she had previously dated and subsequently ghosted. Back home and discharged, she learns of her brother's suicide, and is determined to expose the dark web of lies threatening her family.
Sara is a skilled journalist, with natural instincts for following the clues. She has a complicated relationship with her father, who is a high ranking general in the military. She is compassionate, independent, and fiercely tenacious, fighting for what is right.
Gavin doesn't know what went wrong with Sara, but he will do whatever it takes to help her and keep her safe. I like how he is respectful and forthright with Sara, and he's the kind of guy you can't not like. He thinks on his feet, and is a good problem solver.
While the second in a series, it works well as a stand alone too. Great pacing, plot, and character interaction make this book a stand out. Once I started I didn't want to put it down. Suspenseful, with reveals that kept me on the edge of my seat. Well balanced read, filled with faith, suspense, strong heroes, and well built character arcs. Highly recommend this fantastic read, Lynette Eason hasn't let me down yet!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
