Don't Cry for Me is the second book in Sharon Sala's new gripping Rebel Ridge trilogy. Grab the kleenex before you start reading. Sharon Sala is one of those gifted writers that are able to touch your heart and pull a reader deep in to the book from the very opening scene. No matter what her characters go through to get to their happy ending, I always find myself smiling and giving a happy sigh at the end of the story.
Mariah Conrad is an amazing heroine, having been wounded in active duty in Afghanistan and released from the hospital she thinks she has no where to go and no friends to help her when Quinn Walker arrives at her bedside. The two have a past, but Mariah never expected the man to come for her and bring her to his home. Quinn is also dealing with the aftermath of the war but he knows he has to do what he can for Mariah. But things aren't always what they seem on Rebel Ridge and soon they find themselves fighting for their lives right here on their home soil. Sala's newest Rebel Ridge installment is filled with deep emotion and heartache. The characters are believable and perfectly matched. Mariah is one of my favorite Sala heroines to date because she's feisty, take charge and sensitive all at the same time. This read is a keeper and I can't wait for the third installment of Rebel Ridge.
Mariah Conrad has come home. Badly wounded on active duty in Afghanistan and finally released stateside, she has no family to call on and nowhere to go—until Quinn Walker arrives at her bedside. Quinn…her brother-in-arms, ex-lover and now maybe her future.
Quinn brings Mariah to his log cabin in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky to rest and recuperate both physically and emotionally. While she's incredibly grateful, Mariah is also confused and frustrated. She's always stood on her own two feet, but now even that can literally be torture. She's having flashbacks and blackouts, hearing helicopter noises in the night. She wants to push Quinn away—and hold him closer than ever.
But will she get the chance? Those helicopters are more than just post-traumatic stress; they're real—and dangerous. Bad things are happening on the mountain. Suddenly there's a battle to be fought on the home front, and no guarantee of survival.
