Blurb : A terrible loss…Captain Sarah Anders lost her husband to the Iraq war and has nearly lost the career she loves. Sent to Fort Hood, she only wants to do her job and take care of the daughter she’s raising on her own. She never counted on running straight into a memory she’d tried to forget.
A love he never forgot…Captain Sean Nichols never got over Sarah. He simply tried to forget her amidst the war and the chaos of combat. But when she’s assigned to investigate his unit, he comes face to face with the woman no war or any amount of time could make him forget.
A dark secret…As Sarah gets closer to the truth, Sean must accept that actions he took during the war may end the tentative love building between them. And even if Sarah can forgive him, Sean may never be able to forgive himself.
Review : “After The War” is not my first Jessica Scott novel. Therefore, I already had certain expectations when I received this book. Those expectations were fully met. The normal reader is usually an outsider, so therefore to judge if the drawn picture of the military is correct will be very hard. However, I feel that it at least sounds very believable if compared to other novel that sound far more romanticizing (too much infact). Therefore, Ms. Scott’s books give an interesting view on the military and in this case, especially from the viewpoint of a woman that is mother, widow and soldier.
The Storyline was good and the characters were fully developed with enough depth to give the reader the possibility to feel with/for them. The writing is fluent and the dialogues even witty at times.
I would like to recommend the book without hesitation to all lovers of “second chance – contemporary military romances” (what an expression) 🙂 .
