    Amazing

    This was an absolutely amazing story of the strength, determination and fortitude it takes to be a spouse of our military personnel. I'm going to keep this short because I want you to experience all the goodness this story has to offer as it unfolds on the pages before you. I don't want to give anything away. Just know this, the writing is exceptional and the characters are strong and well developed with flashes into the past to give us their full story. This one needs to go on the must read list. I highly recommend it.

    Amazing

    An amazing story of how the military affects the spouse, the family and the enlisted member. This story is told in a dual POV in past and present. I had a hard time putting this book down. Loved how Noah and Harper began their relationship and how it continues throughout his enlistment until he dies. The story also focuses on the life of Harper being a young widow and her best friend Allison, who's husband is suffering from PTSD. Then you have Bennett, who was Noah's, Seal brother whom Harper reconnects with. This story is full of emotions, loss, friendships, grief and learning to love again. The writing was amazing and drew me in from the first page. I highly recommend this book.

    Tells it like it is

    Every book by Laura Trentham is a joy. You laugh, you cry, you put your hand over your heart and say, “Ooohhh.” They are always sweet stories with a lot of love and a good amount of heat and some serious situations that the characters have to work through. So before I even started reading The Military Wife I was certain that I would love it. But this time, in a genre that she stated is new to her, author Laura Trentham has outdone herself. This book touched me; it found a place in my heart and wouldn’t leave. I am the wife of a retired airman and the mother of a retired sailor and the grandmother of an active duty soldier. And I can tell you that The Military Wife nails it on all counts. I felt like I was back on base, in a wives’ group, enduring a deployment. I could feel the pain of the servicemember and the frustration of the spouse left behind, trying to simultaneously be strong and supportive while at the same time wanting to have a career or a fulfilling purpose in life beyond the military walls. Harper is strong, but stuck in life, afraid to move forward, not wanting to leave Noah’s memory behind. Bennett is damaged not only by everything he experienced in the military but also by his early life, and he is determined to keep the doors shut to further heartache. There is conflict and animosity between them but at the same time an attraction that, much to Harper’s dismay, feels stronger in some ways and somehow more adult than what she had with Noah. Harper’s friend Allison and her former SEAL husband Darren are experiencing something not at all uncommon to military families – he is desperately trying to cope – stoically alone – with the effects of things he has done and seen, and she is desperately trying to support him without prying, without making him feel worse, and without letting any of it affect their family. None of that is really possible and that makes for some tough times. The Military Wife seems very different from this author’s Cottonbloom series, more serious, a totally different atmosphere and environment. But in the ways that count it is very much the same: strong, compelling well-developed characters, a storyline and smooth, easy-flowing plot that move quickly and pull you along so that you can’t put the book down, intrigue, love, joy sadness, with satisfying situations and relationships that give you a hint and promise of what’s to come, leaving you wanting more. All in all just a fantastic read. The Military Wife is the first in Laura Trentham’s new A Heart of a Hero series. I am looking forward to many more stories in this series. I received a copy of this book from the publisher St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own – I loved The Military Wife and highly recommend it.

    Outstanding!

    I've enjoyed all of the books I've read by Laura Trentham. The Military Wife, I totally love! Ms. Trentham has given readers a phenomenal book loaded with a stellar cast of characters. Harper is a young mother and widow, living with her mother. Her husband was killed in the war. Bennett was injured at the same time and left the military after losing his best friend, Harper's husband Noah. Harper and Bennett's story is loaded with drama, humor, sexy bits and the horrors of PTSD. The Military Wife is book 1 of the A Heart of a Hero Series but can be read as a standalone. I can't wait to read the next book! This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I was enthralled by this deeply emotional romance.

    This is an intense romance, one that goes right to the heart of survivor's guilt, PTSD, and starting over after losing the one you love. Bennett is the strong silent type, a loner who has never had anyone in his corner before, except Noah. He's not interested in reliving the ghosts of the past, nor is he ever going to allow himself the luxury of leaving his loneliness behind. Five years after losing her husband, Noah's widow, Harper, wants more answers than she got from the official report. She goes to his teammate and best friend, the man Noah named their son after, knowing that Bennett was there when Noah was killed. But Bennett refuses to discuss any of that, despite her best efforts to push the matter. Harper is also starting up a new business, one that would be run by other military wives, who find that jobs are hard to come by due to the risk of being moved to another base at any time. Bennett helps Harper set this up, and together they help another couple who are dealing with PTSD. The romance between these two was delicately handled, due to their shared connection in Noah. It was beautifully written with multi-layered characters and a refreshing honesty about the emotional impact of military service. It's a wonderful story, and I loved every bit of it. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
