True Valor

I enjoy reading a book that involves romance some mystery, but doesn't use vulgar language and graphic imaging to get the point across.

I think the books in this series remind us that there are those among us who sacrifice much so we can move through our day without worrying when we put our children on the school bus or take them to a mall. Without people like those portrayed in this series of books, that probably wouldn't happen. Ms. Henderson creates characters that intrigue us enough to want to get to know them and that encourages us to look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Is the book the best book I have ever read...no, but it is interesting and I feel good as I read it and when I finish it.

An amazing Sequel

If you could sum up True Valor in three words, what would they be?

Perseverance, Bravery, Strength

Who was your favorite character and why?

Grace; You expect the three words above when describing a man in the military not a female. It was a great story outlining how difficult it must be for women in the armed forces. Change is necessary but rarely easy. Grace's character shows women can do the job as well as men but also the balance necessary to have a personal life.

What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He really brings the story to life.

Intriguing suspense

If you could sum up True Valor in three words, what would they be?

Having faith in God in dire situations.

What did you like best about this story?

You became so involved in all the characters personalities.

Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

I would have to say Bruce.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but you wanted to contemplate about what you read. The story has a lot of depth to it.

Any additional comments?

It needs another book to tie the ending up in a better way.

Enjoyed listening to this

This is part of a trilogy of romance novels usually involving the military. It was a nice listen and didn't require a lot of concentration. Not serious literature but very entertaining.

Good story; issues with Audible and narrator

The chapters on Audible don't line up with the book chapters. For example, Book Chaper 5 starts at 05:26 of Chapter 3.
I have yet to find a male narrator who can do decent female voices. They always sound like female impersonators. I would rather have a female narrator that can do male voices.

Not my favorite

Love the narrator. Love the author. Not a book that I would listen to again due to all the military jargon and explanations. I have LOVED the O’Malley series and other books of hers. This was just a little heavy military and not much on the romance until the end for my taste.But that’s just me. I have simple tastes
