Dee Henderson writes excellent books. I really enjoyed this one. The characters were very likable (a Dee Henderson specialty:) )and the plot was good. I would recommend the entire series and recommend Dee Henderson's O'Malley series, as well.

Book One in the Uncommon Heroes series, features a lifeguard named Kelly Jacobs. She is the widow of a Navy SEAL. She begins to fall in love with Joe Baker, her late husband's friend. He is also a SEAL. This has realistic scenes of SEAL Black Ops and an intriguing mystery. As usual, Henderson knows how to write romance so that you are looking forward to that first kiss almost as much as the characters. Steamy!

A Great Read
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It gave me a better understanding of people who risk their lives for the safety of our nation, and the sacrifices they make for us. And their families, friends and loved ones are making that sacrifice right along with them. Every person in this world is precious to God, and He is dealing with them on a personal basis every day. I felt like I was taking the journey with the characters in this book. And I love how Dee Henderson weaves so many of God's principles throughout the book.

Perfect start to a series.
This is the 1st book in the Uncommon Heros. I absolutely fall in love with the Navy Seals. A great book about faith, with suspense to go along.
