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.
This book works as suspense on so many levels. Cooper makes a great sympathetic main character as she starts the story having survived so much already. Getting shot down in her helicopter, hiding for four years, barely getting rescued, and now she's being framed for murder. But she's got her father and a Navy SEAL on her side, as well as the determination to prove herself innocent so she can see the daughter she hasn't seen in four years. Working together in the brief time they have together, it soon becomes apparent that there is a conspiracy at play and if the;y don't get to the bottom of it, both Cooper and Axe could pay with their lives. Peterson has done a nice job creating an interesting scenario with both great characters and obstacles galore. I enjoyed reading the story and how Cooper and Axe fall in love along the way. It's clear the author worked hard to get the military and other details right, which I always appreciate as it makes the book more believable.
