I really loved reading this book! It grabbed my interest from the very beginning and just didn't let up.
We get to know Cooper and Axe through current circumstances as well as flashbacks. The flashbacks really help us understand the struggle and the bonding these two went through.
If I could summarize Cooper's life in one sentence it would be: What a mess. Honestly, What. A. Mess. Her helicopter goes down in Afghanistan and everyone in her crew dies leaving her the lone survivor hiding in a remote village. Little does she know that in the four years since as she has tried to just survive, back home she has been declared dead and her husband has married another to help raise their daughter that doesn't even know her. See? It's a mess. But that's not all. Cooper is suffering from PSD, her husband is killed and then she realizes that someone is trying to kill her. But the local sheriff thinks Cooper is the killer. Oy. Axe shows up and he and Cooper are off on mission to discover what is really going on. It's a crazy ride!
In my mind I kept thinking, "how much can one woman take?!" I still wonder but at least Cooper had Axe and her father on her side. They were her rocks and the steadying influence when her whole world was crashing down. I loved them both.
This book has a bit of everything. Suspense, danger, drama, action. It was really good. I read through this book so quickly because I just didn't want to put it down. Yay! I love when that happens.
Content: No swearing or sexual scenes. Some kissing, some violence. There is some mention of the LDS religion and some talk of praying and God but nothing overly preachy.
