Head-turning romantic suspense

I love Ronie Kendig's books and "Trinity" is no exception. In this book, Ronie gives us a glimpse into the lives of military war dogs and their handlers. We don't hear much about these amazing members of our military. They give their lives (both human and canine) to fight for our freedom.

"Trinity" was a truly wonderful book. I love romance, and this has it. I love a little suspense (occasionally), it has that too.

I've never been much of a fan of "military" books, but the excellent writing within Ronie's novels has changed my opinion. I may never pick up anyone else's military books, but I will be coming back time after time to anything Ronie Kendig writes.

***I received this book free for purposes of review. The above is my honest opinion.***

I'm a little new to the military suspense genre. I've heard wonderful things about Ronie Kendig's talent for story-telling, so I decided it was high time to check her out. Although, I'm not a huge dog lover (don't hate me!), I thought Trinity sounded like an interesting book. The story was great! I liked Heath from the very beginning. He's struggling to figure out what to do with his life after suffering a traumatic brain injury and jumps at the chance to go back to Afghanistan—even if it's simply to talk to the troops. All of his challenges seemed so realistic, and I had such compassion for him! Darci was a unique character as well. It took me a while to warm up to her, but once I did, I loved her! The back and forth between Heath and Darci and the action-packed story made for a great read!

There were a few things that kept me from completely falling in love with the story. One, the vast number of characters! I had a really hard time keeping everyone straight—even more so because many of the characters went by multiple names. The Chinese operatives had such similar names (some even overlapping between first and last name!) ... it was too much for me to keep straight. The story also jumped through so many different people's perspectives that I often found myself having to go back to re-read to refresh what was actually going on; the transitions were not clear. Finally, I found the background story to be a little convoluted. I eventually gave up trying to figure it out and just focused on the current happenings, which helped me keep moving.

Even with these "negatives", the good out-weighed the bad and I enjoyed the book! I will definitely read other books by this author. Now I just have to decide which one to read next! [3.5 stars]

I received a temporary e-copy of this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
