About this ebook

Welcome to Hathaway House. Rehab Center. Safe Haven. Second chance at life and love.

Overjoyed at his transfer to Hathaway House, Heath Jorgenson is anxious to maximize his potential and to get better from the multiple injuries that sidelined him. But rest is necessary for recovery, and Heath’s body won’t give him any. Even when he buckles under and accepts the need for drugs, his body rejects them. And all the determination in the world won’t matter when your own body is working against you.

Just when he’s about to give up, respite comes from the unlikeliest of sources. The sound of the cleaning lady slowly and methodically washing the hall floor outside his room lulls him to sleep and allows him to see some of the progress he’s desperate for.

Hailee Cisco is grateful for the part-time job of washing floors at Hathaway House. Sure, it isn’t glamorous, but it’s honest work, and, along with her other job, it’s enough to pay the bills—of which Hailee has many. When Dani, the heart of and the partial owner of Hathaway House, offers Hailee a full-time job, Hailee is delighted at the chance to cut back to just one job.

Until she realizes that her change in hours has an unintended impact on Heath’s sleep patterns …

Another military vet with life changing injuries is healed and finds love at Hathaway house. I really love these stories, I think that this is book eleven in the series but they are all different and all standalone. Hathaway house is a rehabilitation centre for seriously injured military personnel, it is run by part owner Dani Hathaway, the staff are all hand picked and wonderful. Running alongside the centre is a veterinary clinic that takes in all manner of waifs and strays, these animals are incorporated into the treatments of the patients and they all get plenty of cuddles. Heath Jorgensen was critically injured when the truck that he was driving, whilst on a mission, went over an IED and was blown up, Heath's two best friends were both killed and he blamed himself. Heath's injuries included losing part of his leg and PTSD resulting in chronic insomnia. Hailee Cisco is a longstanding accountant friend of Dani and is doing two cleaning jobs to help pay off her son's medical bills. Hailee's son died and as her husband had walked out she was struggling to pay off her debts. Hailee and Heath had a slow burning friendship, at first I thought that the way his insomnia was cured was a bit far fetched but it was all explained in a believable way later in the story. Obviously, as it was Hathaway house romance blossoms. I love the way that the patients at the rehab centre are treated in a very holistic way, Dale Mayer looks deeply into the psychological aspects as well as the medical aspects of these traumatised military personnel. This is a lovely gentle story with heartfelt meaning and I can fully recommend it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This book, along with all the others in this series is so enlightening. I love these books. They are about veterans and how they struggle to get through all their post traumatic stress and injuries. I love that each one spotlights just one vet and gets into detail about how the vet is struggling through their injuries and how they work so hard to deal with the everyday occurrence of the effects of those injuries and PTSD. These books seem so real and seem to have such realistic problems that I have to think that Dale does her homework before writing the series. It is so sad to think that this is happening around us all the time yet how many people think about these veterans. These books have opened my eyes and have made me look for more and more information regarding those who serve our country and suffer from protecting us and our freedom!
