In this prequel to Flee the Night—the first book in Susan May Warren’s critically acclaimed Team Hope series—Lacey Galloway leads a rather predictable life as a contractor for the Department of Defense. But news that Sergeant First Class Jim Micah is missing in action leads her on a dangerous trek overseas to rescue the man who secretly captured her heart.
Although her DOD connections quickly cut through the red tape, she also enlists the help of her ex-boyfriend and Micah’s best friend, Lieutenant John Montgomery. As they hatch a covert plan to find and rescue Micah, Lacey’s feelings are once again torn between the two men.
Filled with romance and adventure, this twisty tale will hold you captive to the very last page.
You'll note that instead of the usual "About the Book" above, I wrote "About the Story". That's because this isn't a full-length book but rather an ebook-only prequel to a 2005 novel entitled Flee the Night, which is the first of a series of books about a woman intelligence agent.
Waiting for the Dawn is an exciting read about a search and rescue mission in which a woman enlists the help of her current beau (who really hasn't been that attentive to her) to rescue the hometown boy for whom she has always carried a flame. As a prequel, it has a happy, but not quite settled ending--probably to encourage you to read the rest of the books in the series.
The book is Christian fiction, which in this case means that the guy who is imprisoned thinks of God often and prays and repeats Bible verses. It fits the story, but if faith-based fiction isn't your thing, this probably isn't the book for you.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. I was not obligated to write a positive review. Grade: B-.
