Title: Word of Honor
Author: Hallee Bridgeman
“Right now, I’m mission focused. I have other things to deal with than a December morning ten years ago,” Bill firmly tells Lynda in Hallee Bridgeman’s novel, Word of Honor.
~ What ~
The second book in the Love & Honor series, this three-hundred-and-eighty-four-page paperback targets those interested in romantic suspense involving the military. With no profanity, topics of physical abuse, terrorism, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The beginning includes reviews, a list of the author’s written books, and a glossary of military terms and acronyms while the ending has a dozen discussion questions, food recipes, a teaser of the finale in the series, a biography, and advertisements.
In this active read, it has been ten years since FBI Special Agent Lynda Culter and Army Weapons Specialist Bill Sanders broke off their college romance. But when Lynda is taken captive and her partner is killed, she is the only one who can identify the murderer. With Bill and his team trying to capture those behind worldwide oil pipe bombings, both he and Lynda have to put their emotional past behind them to find the mastermind behind the terrorist group involved in the vicious attacks.
~ Why ~
This is an engaging read if you like military ops, working as a team, and learning to understand the past when it comes to relationships. I liked the references to praying, even when Bill and Lynda had to pretend to be a married couple or when deciding what to do next about the mission and their broken relationship. The details of the U.S. military tactical operations were realistic.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may not care for the prayers to God or Biblical references. Others who are not interested in military stories about the struggles in personal relationships may avoid the book. While there is an unexpected twist in the plot, some of the scenarios involving sub-characters seem unbelievable.
~ Wish ~
Although I appreciated the many times the protagonists looked to God first and foremost, I would have liked to have added the plan of eternal salvation.
~ Want ~
If you enjoy a military read of rekindling a past romance while tracking down the head of a terrorist group, this will keep you engaged.
Thanks to Revell for furnishing this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
