Review: Saving Grace

saving graceReviewed by Shelly

This is my first Norah Wilson and what a read it was. Fast, fun and smooth. This story, the second in her Serve and Protect series is about Grace and Ray Morgan. Grace and Ray are happily and into their 5th year of marriage but things are starting to crumble like a house of cards. Ray is hurt and mad that Grace has left him for another man. But when Grace gets into an accident on the way to her secret lover and Ray gets the call to come get his wife; she can’t remember that she not only left him but why – well what’s a guy to do?

Both Ray and Grace had their faults; regardless I found myself rooting for them to find their way back to each other. Ray is a good man who serves his community and loves his wife. What more is he supposed to do? We all know sometimes it’s not what you do, it’s the way you do it. Keeping that in mind, Ray’s a guy who’s doing his best to protect his wife from the ‘dark’ side of his personality. He’s convinced himself that she’s not strong enough to handle it but I think somewhere along the line he thought she wasn’t smart enough especially in light of the fluff pieces that she did as a reporter. Nothing too hard.

When it came to Grace, I really felt the love she had for her husband and their life. It was also easy to empathize with her confusion after the accident. She just couldn’t understand Ray’s anger and coldness towards her and as their relationship was revealed, I completely understood both Ray’s anger and Grace angst (all of my favorite scenes involved her). Now, there were moments where I wanted to just yell at them that it might be a good idea to tell each other how they’re feeling – they are married for goodness sake. I would have liked to know more about them before this time in their life. There’s a small glimpse but it in no way gave me a clue as to what these two first loved about each other – maybe that doesn’t matter anymore, just that they do now.

I thoroughly enjoyed the evolution of their relationship and the involvement of secondary characters, namely Ray’s fellow police officers, to keep the pace going. Chockfull of adventure, suspense and a few none-too-shabby sex scenes, there was no downtime for this couple once on the lam. I would highly recommend this if you’re in the mood that kind of story.

I think I’ll go back and find some others in this series because I enjoyed this one a lot.

Happy Reading Folks!
