As I’ve said many times before, I’m not a huge fan of fiction. I find so much of it “full of fluff”. However, once in a while an author comes along that challenges that. This is the second novel that I’ve read by author, Halle Bridgemen and I am truly enjoying her work. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“The only man who can save her life has been dead for a decade. Raised in a loving home, Aria Suarez dreamed of becoming a professional pianist happily married to her high school crush. After the only boy who ever caught her eye dies a hero’s death and her wrist is shattered along with her future plans, she turns her brilliant musical mind to nuclear engineering and solving mysteries of science.
Abandoned to an abusive father at five, Nick Williams grew up dreaming of escape; of enlisting in the Army and leaving his wretched life behind; of proving himself worthy of the girl he loves. But the crucible of combat offers only the escape of death. A decade later, Aria uncovers a nuclear plot that threatens the heart of our very nation. Sinister forces surround and threaten her when, out of nowhere, the man who reportedly died so many years before returns as if from the grave — intent on protecting her.”
An Aria for Nick by Hallee Bridgeman is the second installment in the Song Of Suspense Series. I didn’t think it could get any better than A Melody for James – the first of the Song of Suspense Series – I was wrong.
This is not an average run-of-the-mill typical sweet love story. It is filled with action, intrigue, suspense, battle-trauma, hope, dreams, heartache, abuse, redemption and yes, forgiveness, love and romance and above all else – faith. This story will take you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions as you turn each page.
To tell too much about the story, would be to take away your pleasure in reading this book. However, warnings… don’t start this book if you have plans for a day or so. I had a difficult time putting it down.
I am not so patiently waiting for the next installment of this series to publish. I am not a huge fan of fiction, but Ms. Bridgeman has become a favorite for sure.
