Genre: Contemporary Suspense

Lieutenant Commander Cooper Lane has so much to live for. With a loving husband and beautiful baby girl waiting for her back home, she is anxious to finish her mission in Afghanistan and return to her family. But in a split second, her world shatters. Her helicopter is going down in that hostile country, and there will be no survivors. 

Four Years Later . . . On a covert mission in an Afghan village, Navy SEAL Axe Talbot finds something no one ever expected: Lieutenant Cooper Lane—alive. Cooper survived the crash that killed her team and has been hiding behind enemy lines for four years. It’s the woman he’s been looking for and dreaming about for so long. 

After her rescue, Cooper is not sure she can survive the reality waiting for her back home—when she disappeared and was pronounced dead, her husband married her best friend. Cooper is lost, but her troubles are just beginning. In one horror-filled moment, her former husband is murdered before her eyes, and Cooper becomes the prime suspect. Now she must embark on one last mission to clear her name. And there are only two people she trusts to help her: her father and Axe, the SEAL who rescued her. Cooper and Axe take off, and together the makeshift team uncovers a trail of mysterious deaths that leads to unimaginable danger.

A very intense premise, along with a plot that coincides with it, Breach of Trust by Kathi Oram Peterson is spot on when it comes to angst, action and twists to what life can bring you. The characters were very well developed, especially our main protagonist, Cooper. Everything she's been through, your heart breaks for her. In all honesty, as I'm reading this, I felt like I was watching a TV show. There were so many dramatic moments, as well as great dialogue between the characters, it felt dramatize. One thing that takes away from it was all the build-up felt anti-climatic at the end. I kind of wished it was more. However, as I thought about it, maybe it was intended to be simple as a comparison to what it was and had been.  A great suspense for sure.
