Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Hours to Kill by Susan Sleeman {Book Review}

 **I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

Just as Homeland Security Agent Addison Leigh reaches the pinnacle of her cyber investigation into a firearms smuggling ring, she's attacked and left for dead. Her estranged husband, ICE Agent Mack Jordan, is notified that she's at the hospital in a coma. He may have let his past military trauma ruin their short marriage, but she never gave up on their relationship, and he remains her next of kin.

Mack rushes to her bedside, where he promises to hunt down the man who attacked her. Mack failed her once when he bailed on their marriage, and he's not about to let her down again. But when she wakes up in the hospital, she remembers neither the attack nor ever being married to Mack. And when a second attempt to take her life is made, it's clear something very sinister is going on, and Mack and Addison are in for the ride of their lives.

Hours To Kill is the third book in the Homeland Heroes series by Susan Sleeman. While the primary case in this story can be enjoyed on it's own, there is another case that has been playing out in the background throughout the series. As such, while I think it would make sense as a standalone too, I do believe readers will get the most out of the series by reading in order. 

If you're looking for a book filled with action, this is certainly it. The action starts early on and doesn't let up throughout, holding me in the story to see what was going to happen next. I did feel like perhaps things were a little more technical that I cared for in a few places and it slowed down the action... but I found myself on the edge of my seat nonetheless. I am always a fan of second chance romances so seeing Addy and Mack's reconnection was definitely a highlight of the story. I appreciated that it gave a look at PTSD in a very real way as well. 

Overall, a good read and one that fans of romantic suspense are sure to enjoy.
