Major Jackie Holmes is a career soldier with nearly twenty-one years of service under her. Returning home from Afghanistan injured makes her evaluate her life. After her husband’s strange behaviour, she realizes the only people in her life she can count on to help with her recovery are her twins, her parents, and all the medical teams she finds herself surrounded with. Could a chance encounter with an old school friend turn her life around?

As a physiotherapist at a military rehabilitation centre, Carrie Spencer treats all kinds of people and injuries. She just didn’t ever consider running into an old school friend, and end up treating her.
In the midst of an abusive relationship, Carrie is struggling to decide how she needs to act to safeguard herself and her boys, Charlie and Richard. Jackie is her bright light in a dark place, and Carrie begins to rely on her friend more and more as she comes to terms with what she must do.

Everything comes to a head at a party held at Jackie’s house…the only question is—Will Carrie do the right thing and turn her back on her relationship, or will she follow her lover and suffer more of her abuse?

When a friendship turns to more and two hearts beat as one, is it possible for that bond to be torn apart?

My View:

So Sweet
Hero is a timeless romance between two women struggling to find peace in their lives, seeking solace and strength with each other.
Jackie has come home from the war injured, her life forever changed. She has to be in the rehab hospital for weeks on end. Her teenage children come to visit often but her husband is aloof and distant, uninterested and absent. Jackie’s physio therapist, Carrie, is someone she knew as a child. Carrie is sweet and attentive and caring. Her visits soon becomes the highlight of Jackie’s day. The two of them come to lean on each other as they confront heartaches and celebrate milestones. As the time passes, their friendship is slowly turning into something more….

Hero is such a sweet romance! I absolutely adore Jackie and Carrie. I like that they are older and more mature women. They are so sweet and loving and accepting but they are also strong in fighting for what they need out of life and together they find it. They are lifelike in that they both have children and spouses and careers. They know what life is about and what they want. I enjoyed watching their friendship grow and turn into more and I like the strength each woman possesses as they overcome their circumstances. All in all this was a really good book that will give you a case of the Awwww’s. Well done Ms. Meyrick
