    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Unfortunately, this book wasn't for me. The story itself could have been a really good action-packed thriller, but the author used so much police and military shortcuts, I didn't understand half of them. And this made the whole story difficult to read. For me, the flow of the story wasn't good. Sometimes it was very fast-paced and then it slowed down too much in the middle and dragged along. Amelia, ex-military, now a cop may be used to violence, but the other MC wasn't and I don't think you can Unfortunately, this book wasn't for me.

Amelia, ex-military, now a cop may be used to violence, but the other MC wasn't and I don't think you can just stand up and go on with your life after somebody blow your office away and another was shooting at you and your friend. There wasn't enough depth, especially to the story. I'm sorry I didn't like it more, but maybe it's just me. My rating 2.5 stars

    This book has so much potential. Both the storyline and the characters are compelling. It flows equally with explosive force and tender emotions. The bad guys that threaten and doggedly pursue these lesbians, their families and workmates (either in the physical or mental worlds) are shadowy monsters. The heroes have mythic strength, beauty, intelligence and courage. At no point did the story lag as it forged ahead even bypassing the book's end into a future horizon. As much as I enjoyed reading This book has so much potential. Both the storyline and the characters are compelling. It flows equally with explosive force and tender emotions.

The heroes have mythic strength, beauty, intelligence and courage. At no point did the story lag as it forged ahead even bypassing the book's end into a future horizon. As much as I enjoyed reading this novel and admire this writer, I was annoyed by typos and plot conflicts. A good editor could have polished out numerous flaws. Self published work in lesbian fiction can be so good while falling short of what it could be. I rarely care about these issues as I read and notice them. I make the corrections in my mind's eye and move past them. In this amazingly crafted novel, the bloopers were an unfortunate distraction. I read the author's three earlier works and I've purchased her most recent book. She is talented. I hope that she is able to find the kind of editorial support that her work deserves. Setting these issues aside, I am so very glad that I read this wonderful new novel. I look forward to her next.

    Very powerful book. If you are wondering what it's like to be a woman war vet returning to normal society, this is the book to read. Very powerful. There is a good balance between the horrors of war and the love between women.
