Majority of us can comprehend the sacrifice many men and women make when they serve in the military, but often times we forget the affects a war can have on a person once they are home. Digitalis is the second novel in the Discarded Heroes series. Colton “Cowboy” Neeley is a Marine sniper who suffers from debilitating flashbacks. After an episode that put his four-year-old daughter Mickey and his parents at risk, his friend Griffin offers Colton a way out of the Marines and a way to seek help. He accepts his friends offer and joins the group Nightshade.
Despite Colton’s promise to keep his heart free from all entanglements, he still feels drawn to a young woman working at the Hastings department store. Piper Blum is drawn to the cowboy, but she has secrets of her own.
After an attempt on Piper’s life, the group Nightshade is given the task to find Piper’s dad, Yitshak Rosenblum. This task leads them to Israel’s Holy Land and uncovers a secret plot to destroy Israel.
I enjoyed reading Digitalis by Ronie Kendig. The book kept me guessing what was going to happen next and it was not your typical romance novel. I would recommend Digitalis for an enjoyable read.
