This is absolutely a beautifully told story of a wounded veteran, Asher Lee, who came home from Afghanistan after being severely injured by an IED, losing his right hand, injuring his right leg and disfiguring the right side of his face. After a year in the hospital in Texas, he comes back home to Danvers, VA to the family estate. Asher is alive, but by no means is he living. He is an empty shell of a man who has been physically and mentally devastated by his loss and disfigurement.
Savannah Carmichael, was a young journalist who had left Danvers, VA for NYC and after college worked for the Sentinel newspaper, her dream. But she accepting information from her boyfriend and called it reliable source, that was anything but. Patrick had used her and she was expendable to save his family. She has come home to lick her wounds. A journalist friend puts her in touch with the Editor for a Phoenix newspaper and she accepts an assignment with possible employment.
I am not going to tell the story, instead I am going to say that this is such a beautiful and moving story, one that is full of love, laughter and heartache. It is a story you need to read, it is Asher and Savannah's story.
At one time Savannah and Asher both left their small southern town Danvers, Virginia to see the world. Years later they're forced to return home broken in body and spirit. At least Savannah had family to return to. Asher had no family or friends
waiting for him when he returned from war with disfiguring wounds to his face and arm. The town was less than welcoming. He instantly became the town freak. He hides away in his home refusing to face people who only look at him in disgust or can't bare to look at him at all. Miss Potts, his house keeper, has been his only companion for the last eight years.
Savannah's career in journalism was crushed along with her heart by her boyfriend in New York. When she gets the chance to get back into her writing career she sets her sights on a story of an American War Hero that was ostracized by his home town. Of course that happens to be Asher. She never expected him to agree to be interviewed. Neither of them expected to fall in love.
There are so many sweet moments as their friendship develops. Savannah looks at Asher like he's a man, not a beast. She's curious and not afraid to ask the hard questions and Asher quickly discovers he can share things with her and it not scare her away. I loved the southern drawl the author used. Being from the south I can say the southern charm to the story felt real. There were little things like the mention of the movie SHAG and the sassy attitude of Savannah's sister that endeared me even more. Savannah is strong willed but her recent heart break has her a little reluctant to open her heart completely to another man, especially one she barely knows. Asher on the other hand falls hard and fast.
No one understands how Savannah can look past Asher's mangled face but her honest affection towards him gives him the courage to finally seek medical/surgical help to repair his injuries so he can actually rejoin the community. Unfortunately another bastard swoops in to take advantage of Savannah and not only ruin her career again but possibly destroy what she has found with Asher. They have to learn the hard way how strong their love is. And Savannah learns a little too late that her career isn't what she wants most in life. I cried and ached for both characters as they faced heart break.
In the end, both characters are stronger and their futures brighter. Together they're ready to start forever. You will also love Miss Potts. She is so much like Miss Potts from Beauty and The Beast. Her character was perfect.
Most importantly, the author is donating 50% of the profits from the sale of this book to OPERATION MEND an organization that helps wounded veterans. This is a great cause and the perfect story to help open our hearts to those men and women who bravely serve our country.
Savannah Carmichael left her small hometown in Virginia to live in New York and become a journalist. But when she is fired after writing a story which ruins her career, she returns to her home in Danvers, Virginia upset and broken. So when an opportunity arises for her to write a new human interest story about Asher Lee, a veteran who returns from Afghanistan after being seriously wounded, she decides this is the story that can ultimately put her back on top. But Savannah never anticipated the bond that would grow between them ultimately melding their lives and their hearts together forever.
After returning to his small home town after being left injured and disfigured in a horrendous explosion, Asher has chosen to live his life in seclusion away from the shocked looks and stares. But when one summer day unexpectedly brings a beautiful young woman to his door asking for him to allow her to tell his story in an article she has been commissioned to write, upon unexpectedly catching a glimpse into her eyes he agrees to talk to her. As the days pass and Asher begins to open up to Savannah, both of their hearts begin to open up as well with a discovery of a love deeper than either of them ever expected to find. But when one mistake inserts a wedge between them, will they be able to look beyond that misunderstanding and return to each other’s arms and hearts where they both believed they had always belonged?
The Vixen and the Vet is an unbelievably powerful and beautiful novel. With a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes, my heart was overflowing from the intense love I could feel that was shared between Savannah and Asher as it emanated from my Kindle. As I reached the last page and the final words of their story, I knew they would remain in my mind and in my heart for many days to come. Their story has truly and deeply touched my soul, and I know I will definitely be returning to them for a second and probably even a third read. For anyone looking for an astonishing book which will fervidly touch them as well, this is definitely a must read.
Katy Regnery is a most extraordinary and prodigious story teller, and I am extremely honored to have been able to read another one of her brilliant and superlative novels. With each tale Katy has written, I find myself falling faster and loving her characters even more than the last. And after having read The Vixen and the Vet, I realized that Katy has done it once again.
