This read was quite enjoyable and satisfying, blending romance and suspense. I loved the solid writing style and the characters.
As with the previous book in this “Wounded SEAL trilogy” by Mitzi Pool Brides, the characterization of both main and secondary characters is well written and you get a myriad of people with diversified and defined personalities.
The hero, Dirk Browning, is this adorable dimpled wounded warrior, who is both an Alpha with strong protective instincts and a Beta who only wants to cherish and please his “lovely lady”.
Unlike what’s usual with this kind of characters, Dirk is not a tortured hero, he’s a rather well-adapted private investigator and dog trainer. He has some past and hurtful issues but overcomes them by reflection and analysis. There’s also no drama about his life-altering injury – and this sentence by itself says what could be lacking somehow just a little bit in the book. I felt often that it was too easy to deal with; and the author often tells instead of showing it.
I also liked the heroine, Skylar Chapman - careful, guarded, insecure, tending to sell herself short, but yet a competent professional and a woman with a quiet, steady and solid personality.
One thing that I really appreciated is the absence of the usual nonsensical misunderstandings and lack of communication between hero and heroine that some authors resort to in order to propel the story forward. What we have in “Wounded at Home” is two people falling for each other in a rather convincing and realistic manner.
Great cover art by Kim Mendonza as in “Wounded at the Lake” – they’re both beautiful!
Skylar, a smart, successful financial advisor, finds herself in the middle of a murder and ten million dollar theft. The FBI thinks she knows where the money is. Her sister is in jail charged with the murder of her husband. On top of all that, the real killer threatens to kill Skylar and her sister if she doesn’t find the money and give it to him in forty-eight hours.. What a mess, and what an engrossing story!
Dirk, an ex-SEAL who has an investigation business and guard dog business, along with his unusual family, rally around Skylar determined to find the killer and the money. The reader gets a vicarious experience of the “stay-up-late” variety.
Wounded at Home is packed full of interesting characters and lots of suspects. Dory, Skylar’s sister is spoiled and self-centered but scared to death in jail. They have never been close, but Skylar can’t turn her back on her nor can she ignore the killer’s threat. While the way she meets Dirk seems a little contrived, it doesn’t matter because it gets the right people together to set things up for action and for love to get in full swing.
Bad memories of the past make Dirk and Skylar both afraid to commit to a relationship. How they struggle with inner conflicts, while working to keep Skylar alive and find ten million dollars flitting from place to place in cyber space kept me turning pages.
This is one in the Wounded SEAL Trilogy but stands by itself beautifully. However, it does make me want to read the other books in the series. Coop, Dirk’s brother, has the love of his life and a baby girl. Now I’m betting Matt, Dirk’s other brother, gets his own story that just might include the irrepressible Carrie. GOOD reading!
