BETRAYAL by Anne Patrick

Drew Presley was on active duty when his wife was killed.  He leaves the military to return home to Dauphine Island to care for his son and try to find out what happened to Nora.  No one seems to know.  The folks on the island are very close and protective of each other but could one of them be a killer?  Trudy Walsh was best friends with Nora is teacher to Nora and Drew's son, Reed.  Trudy is attracted to Drew but is confused about her feelings.  Jack Diamond has always been the man she's loved.  Drew suspects Jack might have something to do with Nora's death.  Trudy's convinced Jack would never do such a thing.  But Trudy and Drew will discover the island holds secrets they never expected to find.  Secrets that someone is willing to kill for.

Anne Patrick is a favorite author of mine and Betrayal is a great addition to her Wounded Heroes Series!  You'll take a ride on a ferry, tour a lighthouse, eat at a local pizzeria and even scuba dive!  I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Dauphine Island and meeting all the locals.  They're warm and loving people who are really more like a family.  I loved getting to know Drew 'Boomer' Presley.  He's a wonderful hero.  Trudy is one of those people you just feel at home with.  She's uplifting and refreshing and knew just how to handle Drew and his son.  The chemistry between them was great!   I loved how Trudy reminded the reader of Psalm 139.  "On the hardest days or in my roughest hours I remembered God has promised that He not only knew everything that would happen to me, but that He would be there for me for every second of every day of my life, whether I realize it or not."  That's comforting!  I especially liked trying to figure out who was behind everything but you don't really find out until the end.  Speaking of the ending, don't want to miss that!  Betrayal can be read as a stand alone, but there are characters that appear from the previous stories so I recommend reading them in order.  Besides, you'll definitely want to read Kill Shot and Trespasses.  Looking forward to next installment due out November 2013!
