The inspiration behind Kill Shot and my Wounded Heroes Series by Anne Patrick
The idea for this series came from a conversation I had with a woman who had served in Iraq. This took place about a year after her tour had ended. She told me it had taken her almost a year before she was able to go to church because of the things she had seen and taken part in during her service. "I felt dirty," she said, and my heart broke for her. It made me think back to a time when I felt unworthy of God's love and forgiveness. We often times forget just how much He loves us and that He never forsakes us! After hearing this brave woman's story and learning of the trials many of our vets face as they return home this series was born. One of the biggest problems our veterans are dealing with is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Sometimes just a loud noise, like the slamming of a door, can spawn a horrific memory from the war that paralyzes them.
As is the case with my heroine in Kill Shot. Kory was an army combat medic for twelve years. The sights and sounds of war have hardened her heart and left her with mental scares that prevent her from living a normal life. That's not her only problem though.
Here's the blurb:
Former combat medic Kory Wagner has survived four war zones. Now she’s home and out of the Army for good and someone is trying to kill her in her own backyard. Just as disturbing is the handsome sheriff who’s on the case. Sheriff Sean Harding doesn’t quite know what to think of the decorated veteran that managed to outsmart an entire search party. What bothers him more is the body of a PI, whom she hired to find her sister's killer, was found dead in a building Kory owns. And Kory isn’t being very cooperative with helping him find the answers as to why someone would kill her sister and want her dead. Will he be able to keep her alive along enough to discover the truth?
