I'm excited to be part of the blog tour for Kathi Oram Peterson's new novel, Breach of Trust.
Since I also write military suspense, I was glad to see another novel highlighting the heroes who serve our country and make such huge sacrifices for freedom. Ms. Peterson does a great job in providing a plot that has just enough twists and turns to keep you turning pages long into the night.
Cooper Lane is a pilot running black ops. On her last mission, she is shot down and everyone thinks she is dead. In reality, she spends four years hiding in Afghanistan. Coming back home, everything has changed. Her husband married her best friend and her baby girl isn't a baby anymore. Cooper is also dealing with a severe case of PTSD which doesn't help her case when her sort-of husband is murdered and Cooper is the prime suspect. Will Axe, the SEAL who rescued her in Afghanistan, be able to help her one more time?
I liked the characters in the story and thought the author did a great job with making them relatable and believable. Cooper is a strong woman with a lot to deal with, and she does her best. Axe is more than just a SEAL and the skills he's learned there. He's a hero with a heart, for sure! The supporting cast, especially Cooper's father, is also well-drawn and adds depth to the story. The first few chapters of the book were choppy for me, since there were a lot of events going on that sacrificed the emotional investment. As you go on, however, the author will pull you into their lives and won't let go! I thought the story was a testament to the strength of the human spirit and how one event can change everything in the lives of the people you love. Fans of military suspense will really enjoy this one.

Lieutenant Commander Cooper Lane has so much to live for. With a loving husband and beautiful baby girl waiting for her back home, she is anxious to finish her mission in Afghanistan and return to her family. But in a split second, her world shatters. Her helicopter is going down in that hostile country, and there will be no survivors.
Four Years Later . . . On a covert mission in an Afghan village, Navy SEAL Axe Talbot finds something no one ever expected: Lieutenant Cooper Lane—alive. Cooper survived the crash that killed her team and has been hiding behind enemy lines for four years. It’s the woman he’s been looking for and dreaming about for so long. After her rescue, Cooper is not sure she can survive the reality waiting for her back home—when she disappeared and was pronounced dead, her husband married her best friend. Cooper is lost, but her troubles are just beginning. In one horror-filled moment, her former husband is murdered before her eyes, and Cooper becomes the prime suspect. Now she must embark on one last mission to clear her name. And there are only two people she trusts to help her: her father and Axe, the SEAL who rescued her. Cooper and Axe take off, and together the makeshift team uncovers a trail of mysterious deaths that leads to unimaginable danger.
