After a disastrous Middle East mission ends his six-year Army Ranger career, Finn McGregor needs some downtime. A peaceful month in the woods sounds like the perfect way to decompress. But peace isn’t on the agenda once he crosses paths with publishing executive Dana Lewis, a neighbor who is nursing wounds of her own. Someone seems bent on disrupting her stay in the lakeside cabin she inherited from her grandfather. As Finn and Dana work together to discover who is behind the disquieting pranks, the incidents begin to take on a menacing tone. And when it becomes apparent Dana’s foe may have deadly intent, Finn finds himself back in the thick of the action–ready or not.
Mystery and thriller books are some of my favorite genres to read, and this one had me wishing there was more. I wasn’t super impressed with the story, I felt like it was just too similar to other mystery novels. I felt a little like I had read almost the same story in a Sherlock Holmes book. I gave the book a 3 out of 5 stars, it wasn’t my favorite but I think that someone like my mom who doesn’t read a ton of mystery novels would love it.
Its definitely worth reading if you’re trying to get into reading more mystery novels and thrillers. I did like that the plot dealt with people who had some PTSD because I think its important to talk about. I don’t think we shed too much light on the effects and reasons behind PTSD.
