Review: Redemption Ridge by Denise A. Agnew

"Denise A. Agnew takes a man suffering with survivor’s guilt, a brain injury and PTSD and introduces him to the one person who can understand exactly what he going through."

Cecelia Finnegan finally has a comfortable, drug-free life when her ex-husband kidnaps her.  Peter, Cecelia’s ex-husband, refuses to accept the divorce.  When he sees Cecelia talking to another man he swears she is cheating on him.  He plans to make his wife pay for her infidelity.  Peter takes Cecelia to a secluded part of the woods.  He is about to drive a knife into her body when a stranger orders him to release Cecelia and drop the knife.  Peter drops the knife, but he has a gun hidden on him.  He shoots at Cecelia’s rescuer.  Cecelia dives for cover and she hears two loud pops.  One of the men falls to the ground, lifeless.  Which man is dead?

 

Jake McNamara is an Army Major on leave after a bomb killed two of his friends and injured his brain.  He lives in an isolated cabin near Redemption Ridge.  His world revolved around recovering from his brain injury so he can return to his military career.  His focus changes when he enters an ice cream parlor and sees Cecelia for the first time.  They flirt, but neither one makes the first move.  When Jake’s car dies on the road to his cabin, Jake witnesses Peter pulling a helpless Cecelia from the trunk of his car.  Jake rushes to her rescue.  When Peter draws a gun on Jake and fires, his military training takes over and he returns fire.  Peter’s shot misses its mark, but Jake’s kills Cecelia’s ex.  Cecelia wants to thank him for saving her life, but she has trouble trusting anyone.  Cecelia fears that he might have his own agenda for saving her life.  Can Jake get Cecelia to trust him?

 

Denise A. Agnew takes a man suffering with survivor’s guilt, a brain injury and PTSD and introduces him to the one person who can understand exactly what he going through.  The attraction between Cecelia and Jake is strong, but both are afraid to act on it.  It takes a life or death situation to force them to see that life is too precious to waste.  Cecelia knows she must eventually trust someone and Jake stirs something inside her that she thought was dead.  Ms. Agnew beautifully exposes the tortured lives of the two main characters as they grow closer together.  Cecelia and Jake fill the voids in each other.  Will they allow their love to mature?
