Overview

The Backup Plan (Charleston Trilogy #1) by Sherryl Woods, Tanya Eby

It's finally time for Dinah Davis to go home. The world-weary correspondent wants to settle down with the sweet guy she left behind in South Carolina's Low Country. Instead, she's confronted by his black-sheep brother, and—despite her longing for serenity—sparks fly.

How can she possibly trade her perfectly safe backup plan for a risk-taking guy like Cordell Beaufort after all the dangers she's already faced? But to Dinah's dismay—backup plan or not—her heart has its own ideas.

Dinah Davis was a hot war correspondent until she barely escaped a car bombing that killed a dear friend right before her eyes. Her editor sends her home to recuperate, and Dinah fully intends to do so by going to plan B, marrying Bobby, the young man who promised to wait until she was home to stay and then become her groom. Bobby's older brother, Cordell, thinks little of this plan, and intends to disrupt it. In so doing, he winds up romancing Dinah himself, and truly falling for the lady, but she has problems. Survivors guilt has made her slide into depression and virtual agoraphobia. Before he can win her heart, he has to mend it. ............... This proves a story can be sweet, yet have grit. Dinah's trauma is credible, though I'll grant that Bobby seemed to be overly beta to wait so long to be her second choice. Yet, despite a minor quibble or two, this is a heartwarming story that celebrates healing.

War correspondent Dinah Davis has covered many of the recent hot spots. Currently she is reporting on Afghanistan, but has lost her edge since she witnessed the death of a friend and was nearly killed too. Physically Dinah has healed, but her boss tells her she is not the same and should return to the States to marry and have babies. Initially refusing to listen, Dinah realizes that her career is over and wonders if her boyfriend Bobby Beaufort still waits for as he promised a decade ago when she chose journalism over marriage. Back home in South Carolina, Dinah¿s mom worries that her daughter has not recovered from her last overseas assignment. Meanwhile Bobby¿s older brother Cord, who thought his sibling was a fool to agree to Dinah¿s backup plan, quickly wants to revise the arrangement by inserting himself as the groom. As Dinah suffers the malaise of post traumatic syndrome, she turns to Cord not her family or Bobby for comfort while he worries whether he will prove enough in the long run. Though the actual backup plan of Bobby waiting for a decade seems strange, fans will appreciate this deep look into the traumas and tragedies civilians in combat areas can suffer. The story line is character driven once Dinah returns home moping and depressed. Adding to her depression is that she realizes her plan is a failure as she finds the sibling more attractive than the chosen one, but does not want to hurt the loyal Bobby. This is a strong tale that showcases the aftermath of horrific situations on survivors. Harriet Klausner

This is a riveting story that follows the guidelines of any romantic comedy or drama. You definitely know how it will end but you will enjoy every minute of the ride, although, the author does take her sweet time getting you there. It's the authors 100th book so she is well versed in how to fill you with the desire to turn the page. This is the first piece that I've read by her and am looking forward to adding her works to my library. The Backup Plan is definitely a book for women who love the idea of having a tall, strong hero who saves the heroine from herself. She's got a lot of demons and it takes his pushing and prodding to make her walk towards the light. I'll do you this favor though. The author uses the word "appointment" instead of "dancing". I don't know why but I thought that you deserved that much of a heads up.

An amazingly well written story that gives readers on an inside look at how PTSD can so profoundly affect someone on the front lines of war.

Love the characters. Cant wait to see where the next in this series takes us. Was kinda hard to figure out how long dinah had been home before the story ends. Would like to have seen a better timeline. Also a couple of places that the story was choppy and you didnt know where the characters were or if it was the same day or what. Overall nice job sherryl woods.
