The Defiant Hero is the 2nd book in Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter series. I talked last week about how much I loved The Unsung Hero. I absolutely couldn't put that book down. It was one of those that I carried with me whenever I left the house...you know, in case I was lucky enough to get stopped by a red light where I could read a page. That's how much I loved that book!
This one, not so much. It's good. But I have no trouble putting it down and only going back to it when it's convenient. Of course, now the writer in me is spending more time analyzing it as I read, trying to figure out exactly why I don't love this one as much.
Here's the cover and the blurb from Suzanne Brockmann's websit:
"The United States refuses to negotiate with terrorists." Meg Moore remembered the warning from her job as a translator in a European embassy. Those same words will spell out a death sentence for her daughter and grandmother who have been kidnapped by a lethal group called the Extremists. Meg will do anything to meet their unspeakable demands; anything -- even kill -- to save her child.
When Navy SEAL John Nilsson is summoned to Washington, D.C. by the FBI to help negotiate a hostage situation, the last person he expects to see holding a foreign ambassador at gunpoint is Meg. He hasn't seen her in years, but he's never forgotten how it feels to hold her in his arms. John could lose his career if he helps her escape. She will lose her life if he doesn't...
HERO: Lt. (j.g.) John "Nils" Nilsson, U.S. Navy SEALs
HEROINE: Meg Moore
LOCATION: Washington, D.C. and Florida
Does that ever happen to you? You love a series as a whole but there are some books within that series that you just can't get into? Can you pinpoint why you don't enjoy those books as much?
I'm working on plotting a series...I need to know!!!! LOL
Have a great weekend!
Peace and Love,
