Deadly Alliance

About the book: When Peter Eddy and his commando team inadvertently upset the Soviets during their most recent mission, they never imagined the diplomatic nightmares that would ensue. They have one chance to redeem themselves: tasked with destroying a bridge in Nazi-occupied Bosnia, Peter and his war-weary team reluctantly agree to drop behind enemy lines. The assignment should be a simple one—were it not for the fact that they are being deployed on a suicide mission.

Genevieve Olivier is devastated by the news of Peter’s disappearance. After all they’ve endured in this war, the determined OSS worker is unwilling to simply let go of the man she hopes to spend her life with. Desperate for information, her work as a courier soon escalates into a counterintelligence duel with a Fascist assassin—and Genevieve is his newest target . . .  

My review: I love reading these books written by A.L. Sowards. She does an awesome job with the characters, you feel as though you know them. I loved both Peter and Genevieve, both of their points of view were great. I loved that they both had moments near the end of the book where they had to choose, either they would live or someone else would, but someone was most likely going to die. Both of these characters were at one point or another willing to be the person who was going to die, and they were both at peace with that.

I love that she sets these during the WWII and that she's able to explain what's going on in a way that is not at all confusing. I feel like I learned quite a lot about what was happening in this time period and I have a grasp of battles that I don't think I had ever heard about before. 

I love that this book kept me on the edge of my seat wondering just what was going to happen both to the characters as well as in the battle. Plus there is a sweet love story, this book really does have it all! 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
