As I read the final page and closed the cover, I shut my eyes and sighed. What a wonderful story. Although this is the third in the series, it's a novel that can be read and understood without having first read the other two. However, if you are fortunate enough to have read Frazier Island and Finding Marie, this volume will bring even more satisfaction.<BR/><BR/>The protagonist, Claudia Gillette, is an intelligent, strong-minded woman. She enjoys her life and her career--a globe-trotting journalist--even though it includes irritants like a nagging boss and a photographer who likes to live in the fast lane. She meets a special operations Naval officer and the sparks fly. But can love bloom with the wacky schedules these two jobs entail? It's a big world, but can they arrange to meet?<BR/><BR/>There's a touch of realism that is not often found in novels. No wonder. The author is a former news correspondent!<BR/><BR/>Bill White, the Naval officer is sent to the Philippines on a secret mission involving hostages, terrorists, and two governments. The non-stop action would make a terrific action film. Guys will also enjoy this one.<BR/><BR/>I highly recommend this book. If you like suspense, you will not be disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Another riveting suspense equal to Frasier Island and Finding Marie<BR/><BR/>Claudia Gillette's single-mindedness and down-East charm make her a prize-winning, globe-trotting journalist, but after she meets Navy Lieutenant Bill White, she's not quite sure her career is enough. Bill White still has eight years in his special ops unit, and with his impossible schedule, there is no room for romance even if he wanted it. Bound and determind to interview the only woman on Bill's special operations team, Claudia wrangles permission from the commander to fly to the Philippines to join their training maneuver. The only problem is, it turns into a rescue mission, and she has put herself and the team in grave danger. Grave is right. Only God cam make something good of it.<BR/><BR/>A totally satisfying page-turner. I want more!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This story is a wonderful addition to the Frasier Island series. You could read it as a stand alone and not be lost but it is so much more fulfilling to have read the previous 2 books. <BR/><BR/>Claudia is the sister of Marie (book 2 Finding Marie)and one who likes to be on the go. Her job as a prize-winning journalist takes her to where ever the story is. <BR/><BR/>Bill White is being trained under Pierre Belanger (Marie's husband). They are training to extract a scientist & his family who have been taken hostage. <BR/><BR/>Claudia is visiting Pierre and Marie and meets Bill White. As they talk casually he mentions that there is a woman on his team. Claudia longs to interview Heidi but Bill is against it fearing that it might reveal things that would hinder their rescue. <BR/><BR/>She ends up in the middle of the rescue operation. From that point on you cannot put down the book. The non-stop action keeps you glued to the pages. Things happen that you don't expect. It caught me by surprise which I love. <BR/><BR/>The thing that I really enjoyed about this book was that you had a chance to revisit the folks you have come to know in the first 2 books. <BR/><BR/>I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
