Acts of Honor is an enjoyable thriller-mystery. It is light on the romance and steam. The author leaves clues and possibilities, which may or may not lead to the correct answers. At times, the mystery is engaging and disappointing.
My main concern was how the author would address Sara falling in love with a patient, which is unethical in the real world. Ms. Hinze does a very good job addressing this issue. Sara does indeed struggle with her feelings for ‘Joe’ in a realistic way. Her struggles with her inappropriate feelings are sincerely conveyed. The resolution for Joe and Sara is too simple. For all the build-up and angst I had expected something to match the long build-up. What followed between the hero and heroine will underwhelm romance fans and/or fans of steamy love scenes.
This book is a thriller similar to Catherine Coulter’s FBI Thriller series. It has the typical twist and turns. Sara is unsure whom to trust as she is thrown into a situation without any preparation. If only the author would have withheld some details it would have allowed more tension to build, in my opinion. Overall, Acts of Honor is an entertaining read for those in the mood for some mystery and thrills.
