The Officer's Secret
Love Inspired Suspense Novel By Debby Giusti
* This is a collection of two older Love Inspired Suspense novels about military investigations. I only read the first novel, The Officer’s Secret. I am behind on reading and reviewing new releases in the Love Inspired Suspense series, so I did not read the second novel.
When Maggie Bennett visits her sister— a member of the military stationed in Fort Rickman, Georgia—she finds that her sister hanging from the ceiling in what appears to be suicide. Maggie refuses to accept that conclusion, however, and insists that she was murdered. Army CID (Criminal Investigation Division) Officer Nate Patterson is skeptical, but he tries to keep an open mind. Throughout the investigation, Maggie and Nate develop feelings for one another. Both are hiding from the past. For Maggie, she and her sister had a rocky relationship. For Nate, the death of his brother in Afghanistan weighs heavy on him. They both must trust God before they can move forward to give their relationship a chance.
I really enjoyed this novel. In my reading of Love Inspired Suspense, I have not come across a military suspense. So I thought this was unique and interesting. Both the case and romance were engaging. Both Maggie and Nate were dealing with similar emotional issues with family, which made them a fitting couple.
I highly recommend this novel.
