Publisher: Barbour
Publication Date: September 2012

A year ago, an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) ended the career of Green Beret, Heath Daniels. Longing to return to the action, a medical discharge keeps him sidelined. Dealing with the effects of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) leaves Heath feels lost and without purpose. Only Trinity, his military war dog, keeps him facing one agonizing day after another. When Heath and Trinity are sent to Afghanistan to give some motivational speeches to the troops, they meet a beautiful and enigmatic woman and it soon becomes evident that she is not who she claims to be.

Military intelligence officer, Darci Kintz is secretly tracking the Taliban under the guise of a geological survey team member. Heath is exactly the type of distraction she doesn’t need when her job and the lives of countless people hang on the line. Her ability to maintain her focus is crucial. However, the harder she tries to forget about the handsome former Green Beret, the more he haunts her thoughts. When Darci is captured, her rescue suddenly falls on the shoulders of the medically discharged soldier and his ‘excess’ war dog.

Trinity is a poignant and contemporary novel overflowing with suspense, mystery, and danger. Ronie Kendig returns as strong as ever with her new series, A Breed Apart. The author brings to life the worries, fears, and the sense of loss so many service members experience after an injury while serving in the line of duty. Heath’s journey to rediscovery is one of heart-wrenching emotions with a hope-filled conclusion.

Strong writing and vivid descriptions place the reader in the middle of the action. Within a span of a few minutes, I went from chocking up, to laughing out loud, to feeling like my heart would leap out of my chest, and then the cycle would begin again as I experienced the characters’ stories as though they were my own. With so many men and women currently serving overseas in the military, Trinity felt like a window through which I could peer into their world and catch a small glimpse of the struggles, fears, and hopes they face every day. I strongly recommend this novel to suspense fans.
