Summary

Former combat medic Kory Wagner survived four war zones, but not without psychological scars. Suffering with PTSD has become the least of her problems though. Someone murdered her sister and they're now coming after Kory. Just as disturbing is the cocky, headstrong, and handsome sheriff on the case.

Sean Harding takes his job very seriously and isn't about to let the decorated veteran who managed to outsmart an entire search party hinder his investigation into her sister's death. Despite all his efforts to stay focused on the case, this beautiful and vibrant spitfire manages to capture his heart.

But if Sean has any hopes of a future with Kory, he must first convince her she needs help dealing with her problems, and he has to stop the killer before she becomes his next victim.

Forgiveness

Former combat medic Kory Wagner's search for the truth about her sister's untimely death takes a disturbing and deadly turn when her P.I is murdered.

On the case is cocky, headstrong, and handsome sheriff Sean Harding. As the violence escalates so do the feelings between our heroes.

To survive and find their HEA she will have to face her personal demons and do the hardest thing of all. Forgive herself.

I really enjoyed listening to this sweet romantic suspense, the first in Anne Patrick's Wounded Heroes series.

Suspense at it's best!

Just when she thinks she can come home and try to acclimate to civilian life, Kory Wagner finds herself trying to find her sister's killer. She has been through it all, several tours in the Middle East with a nickname of Cat since she has 9 lives, this soldier should not have to be facing this tragedy. When she finds the private investigator she hires dead, things go from bad to worse. But Sheriff Seth Harding is here to help, and not only with the investigation! Kill Shot is suspenseful, full of twists and turns, and Anne Patrick weaves the perfect web, keeping us on the edge til the very end. Her stories are always amazing, and I love that we never know the answers, keeping us guessing. The characters in this story are extremely realistic. Patrick touches on some difficult topics like PTSD and survivor's guilt as she lets us in on pain and suffering a veteran may go through after coming home. We take so much for granted! Her basis of faith is always a calming sensation for me as I listen. This is another winner and I am glad to have had the chance to listen.

Leonor A Woodworth is always amazing, but I especially love her narrations of Anne Patrick's work. She has an expressive voice, and it lets all of the suspense and danger in. Her emotional pull is very real and keeps me invested in the characters and the outcome of the story. I loved it.

Enjoyable Christian romantic suspense

Enjoyable Christian romantic suspense with emphasis on military veterans and PTSD. Although I sometimes found Kory a bit abrasive when paired with the ever-patient Sean, their romance resolved nicely.

I received a review copy from the narrator. Opinions are my own.

Great story

Very different. A female vet with PTSD is putting her life back together after returning from active duty. Not everyone is helpful. Someone is working hard to make her miserable and ruin her life, maybe even to take her life.

Great suspense with a bit of romance thrown in. Very enjoyable listen!

She's home now and should be safe...but is she...?

With everything going on in the world right now I've had more time on my hands so I've listened to more audiobooks and consequently have discovered several new authors. Anne Patrick is one of those new-to-me authors. I was intrigued by Kill Shot partly because of the series title, Wounded Heroes, and also because it features a female wounded warrior instead of the stereotypical alpha male in most romantic suspense novels.

A touch on the gritty side, but still well within the normal realm of Christian romantic suspense parameters, I found Kill Shot to be an enjoyable listen in audiobook format. While this is my first Anne Patrick book it won't be my last. I already have several more on my phone, including books 2 and 3 in the Wounded Heroes series, ready and waiting for me to listen.

If you are looking for a good romantic suspense in audio this might be a good choice. I didn't really catch any issues with the production or sound quality. The narrator is one of my favorites and was a nice match for the story. I hope she narrates the next books as well. All in all, not a bad way to spend a few hours keeping the mind busy when the hands are otherwise occupied.

(I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)

Awesome

Kory and Sean’s story will hook you on the first page. It has suspense, drama, romance, plus a military hero and a handsome sheriff! It will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next.

I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook; I was not required to write a favorable review. All opinions in this review are my own.

Murder Mystery, Thriller & Romance

This one was really a lot of fun to listen to. Kory is out of the military and struggling with her sister's murder and trying to investigate it, dealing with her own PTSD from her years of service in the Middle East, and now it looks like the murderer is after her. The town sheriff is both irritating and sweet but she's not sure she's up for romance on top of it all. It quite simply has it all murder, mystery, thriller, romance and a good clean Christian tone that ties it all together. The narrator was great and a real joy to listen to.

Powerful Listen!

Kill Shot by Anne Patrick is a clean and powerful listen that brought me new awareness of PTSD. I enjoyed this murder mystery in a christian format. I had never guessed the killer! Kudos to the author for not making the suspect obvious! I especially loved the pranks described in the book and found Kory to be a delightful character.The sense of community was well done in this book. Seth has a heart of gold, and his reaction to the bait was priceless. Leonor A. Woodworth was perfect bringing the characters to life. She added realistic emotions, and I could hear who was speaking.
I really enjoyed this christian murder mystery and will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. I am looking forward to the next story in this series. I hope the deputy gets her story told.

Good Plot & Narration

Kory while in the military had seen it all, and survived. Her sister was murdered and she wanted answered. She hired a PI and also had a call that someone wanted to buy the warehouse. Both meeting were to be there , upon arriving she found her PI murdered, and someone wants her dead. She reported the murder to the police and then disappeared into the woods . The sheriff finally located where she was staying, intrigued by someone who could evade the search party. They work together and single to solve crimes. Strong believable characters, it also deals with the issues those Vets returning have to deal with. Excellent series and narration by Lenora
Woolworth added greatly to the story. Given ARC audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Murder mystery with a romantic ending!

I acquired an insight into the problems of PTSD for military soldiers returning home from the battlefront and how people cope with the tragedies of war.

Leonor A Woodworth did a good job of narrating.
