Publisher's Summary

Retired Army Staff Sergeant Lee Winters is trying hard to adjust to civilian life. She was released from duty after a bomb in Ramadi injured her and killed her troops, the only people she ever considered her family. Living day-to-day with the knowledge that she was the only one left alive, she hits rock bottom, and an old army buddy persuades her into taking a bodyguard job. Jolene West is injured in an attack meant to get her famous sister’s attention. She resents her sister Tory’s life and plans to move away once she’s healed. In the meantime, Tory has hired a bodyguard to protect Jolene from further attacks, which is just one more thing she resents. What she hadn’t planned on was an undeniable attraction to the woman protecting her body. Both women will try to fight their growing attraction for each other until one of them gives in or dies.

PTSD, Getting over war, A Rock Band needs guarding

Would you listen to Secrets and Shadows again? Why?

This is and existing book with lots of twist and turns leading up to one great love story. I don't which is richer the story of a vet getting over her PTDS and war scars or the love story between the vet and the sister of the lead sister of the band. It is a rich and many layered story. Showing the scars left over after the war and the just tender love between two woman when a professional arrangement keeps them apart and honor keeps them at bay.


What did you like best about this story?

The interaction between Joe and Lee (Both woman) I liked how they carefully constructed the love story, in slow tender little touches and almost invisible ways.


What about Erin Bennett’s performance did you like?

She had Joe's voice down perfect and really brought her to life. Lee to, showing her moments of PTSD perfectly and making it real for the listener.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was on the edge of my sit for of the story. Between the stalker and the war time scars, and the love story it keep pinned to my sit.


Any additional comments?

This is a lovely story with a mystery, scars of war and a out and out love story. It is well crafted and I loved it.
