ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
This degree has also given her a fabulous perspective on her characters and how to not only make them deeper, stronger, but to make them realistic and know how they'll respond to each situation. Her debut novel, Dead Reckoning released March 2010 from Abingdon Press. And her Discarded Heroes series begins in July from Barbour with the first book entitled Nightshade.
ABOUT THE BOOK
After a tour of duty in a war-torn country, embattled former Navy SEAL Max Jacobs finds himself discarded and alienated from those he loves as he
struggles with war-related PTSD. His wife, Sydney, files a restraining order against him and a petition for divorce. Max is devastated.
Then a mysterious a man appears. He says he's organizing a group that recycles veterans like Max. It's a deep-six group known as Nightshade. With
the chance to find purpose in life once again, Max is unable to resist the call of duty and signs on.
The team handles everything with precision and lethal skill...until they're called upon to rescue a missionary family from a rebel-infested jungle and
avoid a reporter hunting their identities.
Will Max yield his anger and pride to a force greater than him...love?

I really liked this book. The style is similar to my all time favorite author ever, Dee Henderson. There is more military action than in her books though. That is not a bad comment by the way. There are a lot of characters introduced in this book. The author provides a guide in the front which is helpful in keeping everybody straight. This is a unique concept with interesting plot and characters. It held my attention from the first page. I was cheering for the two main characters in this book, Max and Sydney, to make it. It is the first of Discarded Heroes series and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Highly Recommended. :)
