My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When she was just five years old, Melissa Braxton watched her father take her mother's life. Separated from her sister, Lola, at that time, Melissa grew up with a strong desire to help those stuck in abusive relationships. It's why she became a family therapist and opened a domestic abuse shelter.
After losing a leg to a gunshot wound in the line of duty, Phil Osbourne has felt like a man without a purpose--until he hears Melissa's story and decides to use his Special Forces contacts to track down her missing sister. He knows what he discovers will break Melissa's heart. What he doesn't realize is that helping the women reunite will bring the cartel down on them like the Category 5 hurricane striking Miami.
Bruised yet not quite broken, Melissa and Phil battle the storm and the cartel, calling on strength they didn't know they had to escape death, save the innocent, and--just maybe--find healing in each other's arms.
I have had the pleasure of reading the first two books from the Love and Honor series, Honor Bound and Word of Honor. I was excited to find out what Hallee Bridgeman had in store for her characters in the third installment, Honor's Refuge. Oh my goodness, I was not prepared how much more I would love this one. It is not one that I could have easily predicted. There were a lot of twists and turns that made my head spin at times. I was intrigued with Melissa and Phil and admired their bravery and determination. I wanted to keep reading to see how it would end for them and see if they would find the peace and healing that they seek.
I am giving Honor’s Refuge five stars. Lovers of romantic suspense will most definitely want to read this one, as well as, the others from the Love and Honor series.
I received a paperback copy of Honor's Refuge from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
