About the book: Lieutenant Commander Cooper Lane has so much to live for. With a loving husband and beautiful baby girl waiting for her back home, she is anxious to finish her mission in Afghanistan and return to her family. But in a split second, her world shatters. Her helicopter is going down in that hostile country, and there will be no survivors.
Four years later ...
On a covert mission in an Afghan village, Navy SEAL Axe Talbot finds something no one ever expected: Lieutenant Cooper Lane—alive. Cooper survived the crash that killed her team and has been hiding behind enemy lines for four years. It's the woman he's been looking for and dreaming about for so long.
After her rescue, Cooper is not sure she can survive the reality waiting for her back home—when she disappeared and was pronounced dead, her husband married her best friend. Cooper is lost, but her troubles are just beginning. in one horror-filled moment, her former husband is murdered before her eyes, and Cooper becomes the prime suspect. Now she must embark on one last mission to clear her name. And there are only two people she trusts to help her: her father and Axe, the SEAL who rescued her. Cooper and Axe take off, and together the makeshift team uncovers a trail of mysterious deaths that leads to unimaginable danger.
My review: This book was amazing! I loved the way that the plot kept me on the very edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it. I loved the way you never knew just who the main character could trust. Can you trust Cooper's former best friend? The Navy SEAL who rescued her? Her own father? Even the local sheriff could have been the killer! I just never quite knew.
I liked Cooper. The way this book is written you see things from Cooper's point of view, her dad's and Axe's, the Navy SEAL, and I loved the way that enhanced the plot. It was kind of fun that the way you knew just what had happened to Cooper was the series of flashbacks that she has during this whole experience. I loved that some of the time, Cooper didn't even know what had happened to her until she experienced one of these.
Axe and Cooper's dad are great characters too. I loved that they both had secrets they were trying to keep from Cooper and really everyone around them. Those secrets, in some cases end up tying into the plot and helping everything make sense at the end of the book and in some cases, they don't have a whole lot to do with the plot.
This book has tons of intrigue and action in it and you'll be surprised by just who the villain was in the end, I know I was!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

During those years, Kathi read all the how-to books on writing that she could find. When her last child graduated high school, she went back to college and earned her BA in English. She was fortunate to do an internship for the University of Utah's Continuum magazine, where she learned to edit and write articles in the "real" world. Shortly after graduation, she was hired by a curriculum publisher to write and edit concept and biography books for children. She worked shoulder to shoulder with artists and computer programmers as she watched her children's stories come to life. But the desire to write full-length novels called to her. Leaving the workforce, she devoted herself to writing fiction. You can contact Kathi through her website, www.kathiorampeterson.com, and her blog, www.kathiswritingnook.com.
