Her passion is flying. As one of the best helicopter pilots in the naval reserves, Lieutenant Teri Howe is tough, dedicated, and highly-skilled–until a past mistake surfaces, jeopardizing everything she’s worked for.
Rock steady Senior Chief Stan Wolchonok has made a career of solving problems. He willingly comes to Teri’s aid, knowing that his personal code of honor–and perhaps his heart–will be at risk. But when a jet carrying an American senator’s daughter is hijacked, Stan’s unflinching determination and Teri’s steadfast courage are put to the ultimate test. The rescue mission will be daring and dangerous. But somewhere between peril and resolution, the line between friends and lovers begins to blur, pushing both their lives over the edge…
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives by several main characters. Always clearly defined.
This is one of my absolute favorites of the Troubleshooters series. Not only am I a huge fan of age gap – I love that both Stan & Teri can’t quite conceive that the other person would be interested in them.
Brockmann is famous for her story within a story and bringing together numerous interesting plot points to a thrilling end. At nearly 16 hours – this is days worth of entertaining and engaging action, suspense, romance, and drama. Weaved through this is a bittersweet love story told in flashback to WWII Denmark and their occupation by Nazi Germany.
Continuing storylines for Sam & Alyssa, Wildcard, Jules, and Max as well as the introduction of characters you’ll be seeing in future books like Gina, MaryLou, Izzy, Gillman, Muldoon, and more.
Next up is another one of my favorites, Out of Control.
I cannot say enough fabulous things about Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank. They are both stellar narrators – voices, accents, emotions, and giving each character their own unique sound. They also have this way of slightly changing their “reading voice” for each character so that it’s unique from that person’s perspective. It is incredibly dynamic and not found in many narrations.
Note: I originally read this. Then I found our library had the original audiobooks of the first 6 books (single narrators, various). THEN! Then the series was rerecorded in Dual Narration style with Patrick Lawlor & Melanie Ewbank. I’m in LOVE with these narrations. I own them all. And if it were possible to wear out digital copies of something, I’d have done it by now.
