REVIEW: Susan May Warren's newest series starts with Kacey's return home to Montana while on medical leave from the Army after the crash of her helicopter in Afghanistan. While trying to reconnect with her daughter, who has been living with her parents, Kacey is determined to be the mom she needs to be. It is also interesting in how the author introduces the complexity of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the treatments available and how Kacey handles it. Her reconnection with Ben is filled with emotions and baggage that neither know what to do with. I like how Ben, after he realizes the truth about a lie that was told years earlier, steps up and becomes the man he needs to be. I also like how he handled the dilemma regarding his career and caring for his family.
There were a few times when the crash that injured Ben's dad and grounded another PEAK Rescue helicopter pilot were mentioned. It felt like I was missing something because it is only mentioned in passing. I was left to wonder if it was covered in a previous book by Susan May Warren that is part of another series or if it will be detailed in a later book.
This book was enjoyable. I look forward to reading more of this series in the future.
