After the War (Homefront, #2)A terrible loss…

Captain Sarah Anders lost her husband to the Iraq war and has nearly lost the career she loves. Sent to Fort Hood, she only wants to do her job and take care of the daughter she’s raising on her own. She never counted on running straight into a memory she’d tried to forget. 

A love he never forgot...

Captain Sean Nichols never got over Sarah. He simply tried to forget her amidst the war and the chaos of combat. But when she’s assigned to investigate his unit, he comes face to face with the woman no war or any amount of time could make him forget. 

A dark secret…

As Sarah gets closer to the truth, Sean must accept that actions he took during the war may end the tentative love building between them. And even if Sarah can forgive him, Sean may never be able to forgive himself.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This story has two former lovers meeting many years later. They are both Captains now and when they were dating many years before he was taking a promotion to Sergeant and wanting her to leave the Army to marry him and follow him to Korea. She said no and now she has been assigned to investigate his unit. They are both shocked to see one another and him especially when he finds out by her last name that she was married. He had actually served with her husband in Iraq and was in the vehicle behind his when they were being attacked. He saw her husband die but did not know it at the time. He also finds out that she has a five year old daughter that she did not know she was pregnant with until she got the notice of her husband’s death. So the story goes along and she is trying to save her career from the Major who does not like single mothers in the military though she is a women herself. She realizes that she is still attracted to Captain Sean Nichols, who is trying to win her back and let her know that he was wrong and stupid when he was younger. Captain Sarah Anders, is wanting to get back together with him because she is surprised how not only is she reacting to him but also her daughter and how he likes being around them. He actually tells her about Iraq and her husband and he helps her in the investigation of his own unit. All of this leads to a very emotional story that I could not put down until I got to the end. Once again she has done a great job with the characters and with the story. An excellent book. I got this book from net galley.   I give this 5 stars.
