When Elsie and Henry Logan get married, they think the worst that they’ve experienced together is in the past. They both got through the very rough patch they had together while he was serving in the military, but now that he’s joined the Denver Police Department, things have seriously slipped between them again. No matter how hard they try to keep their marriage afloat, nothing seems to work. Do they decide to continue fighting for what they think is the right thing to do? Or do they crumble under the pressure and separate?
Ms. Gray knows how to write stories in which not only her characters, but also her whole storyline feels genuine. This is the follow-up story to Disarm and I loved it just as much. I already had a strong affinity for both Elsie and Henry, so picking up where the other novel left off was easy for me. My heart ached for these two to work everything out, but at times I didn’t think they would make it through this. I felt they balanced each other so well at times, but other times, because they made so many mistakes along the way, I felt their mistakes might have been the number one reason they were having so many issues with one another. I wasn’t sure if they could muddle through these problems this time around, but the author didn’t disappoint in telling their story. This is definitely a story I highly recommend and I think you’ll enjoy the books even more if you read them in order.
