About the Author

Heather Long lives in Texas with her family and their menagerie of animals. As a child, Heather skipped picture books and enjoyed the Harlequin romance novels by Penny Jordan and Nora Roberts that her grandmother read to her.

A great, quick read that takes you to the sands of Afghanistan where the sister of a fallen Marine coordinates a Thanksgiving dinner at the base where he had been deployed. Jana's emotional reactions were so real, there were moments I felt like sharing a good cry with her. The quick attraction between Jana and Charlie, who had communicated through letters, and their one intense night together leave you with a "feel good" hope for something more in the future.

This is a great story. Jana wants to do something to honor her fallen brother so she puts together and jumps through all the hoops to get all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner and get to serve it to the Marines that her brother served with. I enjoyed the glimpse of what Afghanistan might be really like, and the instant attraction between Jana and Charlie. They meet and it's this instant thing, but they only have 48 hours, so it's romance sped up but it works. They have the foundation to go forward to something beautiful. I really recommend this story. Also as another note, a portion of the proceeds go to Toys for Tots. I received an ARC from the author. I was not compensted for my review.

Oh my. Heather Long has done it again. Though this isn’t a very long story it will have your emotions pinging the entire gamut from laughter to tears and everything in between. You definitely feel Ms. Long’s love for her subject. This book, this series, is pro service member without the preaching you get in some other books. Politics aside, every American owes their freedom to the men & women of our armed forces. Heather Long gets that. In this book we get a quick peek at life in a war zone over Thanksgiving and in doing so it reminds us all what we have to be thankful for.
