  • Romance featuring a returning veteran with amnesia

    The third book in Serena Bell's Returning Home series, focusing on wounded veterans coming back to civilian life had an interesting amnesia twist. Hunter, the hero, a widower and single dad started a relationship with Trina, a single mom whose daughter is best friends with Hunter's pre-teen daughter, just before he went off on his latest deployment. The arrangement was that Trina would move into his house for the year and take care of both girls. Prior to the deployment, they'd been dancing around an attraction to each other, but both were wary of becoming involved. Still, they became intimate, agreed to keep it a secret until after his deployment was over, and off he went. As the book opens, Hunter is returning home after a serious chest injury and it immediately becomes clear that although he hadn't been diagnosed with a head wound, he is in fact suffering from retrograde amnesia, and doesn't even remember asking Trina to be his daughter's guardian, let alone that they'd become intimate and started planning a future together. Trina, of course, is crushed. My heart absolutely broke for her as she struggled to adjust to this new reality and completely change her plans and dreams. Meanwhile Hunter, is pretty confused. His body clearly remembers Trina, but his mind refuses to do so. He also struggles with reconciling his current self and lack of memories to the person that he was prior to his deployment, and sometimes despairs of ever being able to meld these two distinct personas together. I'm not usually a big fan of amnesia storylines, but I thought this one was well-executed. Hunter's confusion seemed very real as did the grief and pain that Trina, as well as both their respective daughters and Hunter's mother, experienced in trying to deal with it all. This was another great entry in the series and I'll be looking forward to the next book. I received an ARC from the author and voluntarily reviewed this book.

  • Series focusing on wounded veterans

    I am enjoying the Returning Home series about the wounded veterans dealing with life when they return from deployment. This is the third one and each one has had an interesting veteran to follow. I particularly like the reality that Serena Bell brings to her characters and storylines. I am looking forward to more in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
