Dana Lewis escapes to her beloved grandparent’s lakeside cabin after an accident causes her to take some time off of work. She is excited to spend some quality alone time in the peaceful setting of so many wonderful childhood memories. She is therefore surprised to meet Finn McGregor, the mysterious Army Ranger who seems to be overcoming his own demons in his past, and even more astonished when she finds herself drawn to him. Finn is recovering from a disastrous Middle East mission and is looking forward to a quiet month-long vacation. When strange events begin occurring, Dana and Finn initially dismiss it as a poor taste in pranks. However, when the events start to take on a menacing tone, both must work together to solve the mystery before it is too late.
I have very much enjoyed the other novels in the Men of Valor series and was looking forward to this final installment. Although the characters had great depth and good development throughout the story, I thought the attention was more focused on their relationship than the mystery or suspense of the plot. I was disappointed that we knew so many details about the villain that it left little to the anticipation of the story. I did appreciate that the romance was so well developed in this novel, but I do wish there had been a little more uncertainty and mystery to the story. It was wonderful to catch up with the other brothers (the family dynamic is so fun), but the stories do not need to be read in succession to follow the plot. Overall, however, I do really like the entire series and highly recommend them all!
I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
