Today's book: Nightshade by Ronie Kendig. Comes from the favorite of my friends Relz' blog: http://relzreviewz.blogspot.com/2010/12/relz-top-10-of-2010.html
Soldiers all across the globe are returning home to their families after brutal tours of duty. They are discharged from the service. . .and on their own. Meet Max Jacobs, one of these discarded heroes, as he faces a wall of failure—in his career, his friendships, and his marriage. Failing again—this time to end his life—he is offered a thread of hope. Are covert government operations the answer for him, or will they only bring more danger and dissension upon his broken family?
Wow! I can see why this was a favorite! I think I actually inhaled the book. It's fast-paced, engaging, and takes your breath away. The suspense keeps moving without stopping and the characters are lovable but real. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I found a new favorite author! Fabulous!
