Kill Shot (Wounded Heroes #1) by Anne Patrick

Not all wounded veterans are male.  PTSD hits all members of the services.  You can't watch members of your squad die and not be affected.

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tour allowed me to read an ebook of this story for review (thank you).  Check with any of the stores selling ebooks to get a copy of it now.

Korey has been all over the world fighting and being a medic for the squads she's on assignment with.  Being sent to the front and then watching the hummer she'd been in blow up hurt her deeply and made her feel like she should have died, too.  Following military protocol and securing the parameters of a downed vehicle while you know injured men are waiting for your care and may be dying also makes you feel guilty.  So she leaves the service and comes home.  She sure never expected to need her survival skills there.

When she goes to meet a potential buyer for her warehouse, she finds the PI she hired shot and dying and someone taking pot shots at her.  She escapes.  She not only escapes the killer, she escapes the sheriff and his men, including the dogs.  The sheriff is not happy about this.  He initially thinks she might have been the killer, but he determines that's not true.

This is a fast paced mystery with a romantic interest between Korey and the sheriff.  It also has a Christian theme.  I found the story kept my interest, had a hint of mystery concerning the killer, and the final confrontation had me sitting on the edge of my chair.  I would have liked a lighter touch on the religious aspect of the story, but that's probably just me.  All in all, it was a good read and the author ties it up well as the story ends.

Why not grab a copy of the story, get yourself a cup of coffee or tea and see if you think you could survive what Kory did.  When you flinch in your chair, you'll know the author did a good job of drawing you in.

Anne will be awarding a $50 Amazon gift card to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour, and a $20 Amazon gift card to a randomly drawn host.

I love the sound of this story. It really appears to be a tense and also romantic story. I am glad there is a bit of Christianity in it.
