Some Kind of Hero

Troubleshooters Book 19

Suzanne Brockmann is back with a brand new Troubleshooters novel and it's everything I hoped it would be. Once again we're thrown into an unusual situation with fascinating, believable characters and we are along for the ride as they try to work against the clock to save the day. Brockmann's novels are always well researched and well written, her characters develop throughout the story and leave the reader with a satisfying conclusion. Sometimes they take a few twists and turns that you weren't expecting and this book is no exception. I really enjoyed Pete and Shayla's story but I think even more I enjoyed his daughter's portion as Maudie came to terms with the painful past and her conflicted feelings for her father.

Pete might as well be a brand new father, although his little girl is 15 years old, due to circumstances beyond his control he hasn't been able to spend much time with her. Pete's ex-wife died recently and he's now the sole caregiver for his very troubled daughter. He's doing the best he can but clearly that's not enough because now Maddie is missing and even with all of his skills he's not sure what he's going to do when and if he finds her. His neighbor Shayla steps in to help him find his daughter and though the timing is horrible it opens up a whole new world for Pete. Now Pete and Shay are both racing against the clock, with the help of some of Pete's Troubleshooters friends, to find his daughter before the worse can happen to her.

Book Blurb for Some Kind of Hero

The Troubleshooters return in the latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann! Some Kind of Hero showcases Brockmann’s signature white-knuckle suspense, romantic twists, and sexy Navy SEALs.

Navy men don’t come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can’t he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex’s death left him a single dad overnight, and very unprepared. Though he can’t relate to an angsty teen, he can at least keep Maddie safe—until the day she disappears. Though Pete’s lacking in fatherly intuition, his instinct for detecting danger is razor sharp. Maddie’s in trouble. Now he needs the Troubleshooters team at his back, along with an unconventional ally.

Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller—or to meet a hero who makes her pulse pound. Action on the page is one thing. Actually living it is another story. Shay’s not as bold as her heroines, but she’s a mother. She sees the panic in her new neighbor’s usually fearless blue eyes—and knows there’s no greater terror for a parent than having a child at risk. It’s an ordeal Shay won’t let Pete face alone. She’s no highly trained operative, but she’s smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick.

Still, working alongside Pete has its own perils—like letting the heat between them rise out of control. Intimate emotions could mean dangerous, even deadly, consequences for their mission. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps . . . or else Pete’s daughter may be gone for good.
