I picked this book up at the library with high hopes. I haven't read a book by this author in years, and was looking forward to it. I was very disappointed in the overall story. There was too much technical information about submarines and science, the plot with Gina having to decide between 2 men (both of whom seemed perfect with no flaws) was annoying, and the fact that the man she did marry called her "precious" was creepy. I'm not sure I'll read another book by this author, and if I do, I will reread one of the author's older books that I enjoyed.
I have been a fan of Dee Henderson's for many years. She has a style all her own and I have never been disappointed with her books. This is no exception. The characters are great, both main characters are humble and it is a reminder that we only see small details compared to what really goes on every day within our military.
Of course it is a romance novel and she doesn't disappoint there either. I like the twist of seeing characters from previous books and how their story is going, because as we all know, real life doesn't end at happily ever after.
I always like Dee Henderson books. I liked the book, but have found that her last 3 novels have moved through the story a lot slower than her previous Novels. It was a good read, but thought it needed a little more action. I share my books with others so they can also enjoy them. Would like to see her add a little more excitement in her next one.
I especially appreciated the gentle way Dee shared the life of our country's military families. As a result of this story I have found myself praying for military families differently, in a way - more personally. I know the story was fictional, but I imagine there were elements not at all too far from truth in the real world. ** I was given a copy of this book to review from Bethany House. Even though they gave me the book, the opinions are my own.**
