I just had to read this book right away, after being bummed with Invasion of Hearts; I was looking for redemption and thankfully found it. There weren't as many editing issues and only one bedroom scene that had the twins mixed up. Everything else was solid, the characters to poppin, the story line was consistent with Invasion of Hearts and the bedroom scenes were steaming hot.
The only thing holding Healing Souls back from a five star rating are the editing errors.
Book's Cover Rating
I think the cover fits the book but doesn't really stand out. It was the author, who is a favorite of mine, and the blurb that got me buying this book.
Book's Blurb Rating
I really like the rating and couldn't wait to read Healing Souls.
Sometimes the greatest fight one has, is the one within themselves. Cora only knows abuse and pain. She no longer believes that any man would want her after all she has sustained. Her focus is on her children and making a future for them of love, safety and security. She’s determined to be independent, to resist the anxiety attacks that rule her life, and to start anew.
When her sister challenges her capabilities, Cora sets out to prove her wrong. She never expects to win the hearts of five very intimidating, personally scarred soldiers. But the connection they feel, the shared losses, the vulnerability and challenges, are common between them. The love and compassion they show toward her children alters her belief that these men are cold hearted commanding men. Can she identify and accept true love, when it appears out of nowhere? Or are the scars of her past too deep to let anyone in? When danger appears closer then feared, Cora could lose it all.
