The Way Home (One - Eyed Jacks #2) by Cindy Gerard

The Way HomeReviewed by Nancy Crocker

The Way Home is a brilliant story of four lives that are intertwined with each other. It is both heartwarming, heart stopping and heartbreaking. And it had everything I enjoy in a romance book.

Jess Albert was told her husband Jeff had been killed in war torn Afghanistan four years ago. Since that time she has focused on the general store she runs in Lake Kabetogama. The one thing she doesn’t want is another man who will put the military before everything else.

Tyler Brown first met Jess over a year ago. But he just can’t forget the woman that helped him out of a dangerous situation. Now he is back to see if there is a possible future with Jess. He will do anything for Jess, including go on a rescue mission to bring her Husband home.

Jeff Albert’s convoy was attacked in Pakistan. For the last few years he has been tortured and held captive. With no memory of who he is, he is dependent on the kindness of Rabia, a Muslim woman. Suffering with his debilitating injuries, he dreams of returning to the United States.

Rabia is risking both her own life and that of her father, by caring for the American soldier. Rabia is starting to fall in love Jeff. But she knows she must help him to escape as the Taliban have been searching for the escaped prisoner.

I cannot stress enough just how gripping a story this is. The author had me holding my breath both when the convoy was attacked and later when the rescue mission was underway. And at times I wondered if any of the four main characters would ever find happiness again.

I highly recommend this book to romance readers. This was my first book by Cindy Gerard. I am going to have to go back and read book one. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

5/5 stars

I received an ARC of this book from the NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
