The Soldier's Sister



Who will protect her?

Someone wants Stephanie Upton dead. A warning to leave town is just the beginning. Fearing for her life, Stephanie turns to Special Agent Brody Goodman for help and protection. But can she trust him when he's convinced her own brother is a prime suspect? Torn between her devotion to two men—an estranged brother whose trust she yearns to regain and an agent she may be falling for—Stephanie doesn't know whom or what to believe. As feelings between her and Brody escalate, she'll have to choose sides to stay alive.

Military Investigations: Serving their country and solving crimes

My Review:

Giusti gives readers a glimpse into the day to day life of an active army base while expertly blending suspense and romance. I love the way she portrays community among the military -- it is something I don't have first hand knowledge of so reading Giusti's books increases my understanding and respect for the men and women who serve in the military. I was particularly fascinated by Stephanie's profession as an army advocate. In a day when we often hear news stories about how we are failing our fallen soldiers, I found it encouraging to read about the Army Wounded Warrior Program.

And the suspense is equally as fascinating. Something menacing from Stephanie's past is a force to be reckoned with in her present. Her hopeful reunion with her estranged brother spirals into a complicated haze of adrenaline-pumping suspense that kept me turning pages. Gotta love a suspense with so many hooks you're caught until the very end!

And then there's Special Agent Brody Goodman -- blissful sigh. I fell hard. A pure gentleman of steel with a protective streak guaranteed to generate heart palpitations in gentle readers.

 This latest book in  Giusti's Military Investigations is a winning combination of heart and action guarnteed to satisfy romantic suspense lovers.
