Whidbey Island Series #3
I couldn't wait to share this with you, even though the book isn't out until May. Here's the cover for NAVY RESCUE. It's the third book in the Whidbey Island Series, and to date, the closest to my heart. Gwen Brett is a Navy Pilot who saves her entire crew in a ditch and she's feared lost at sea. Of course she isn't (that would be a tragic novella!) and she survives months in the Philippine jungle, on the run from terrorist insurgents.
So often I'm asked "what was it like to be a woman at the Naval Academy back when you went there?" As if I marched in formation next to the wooly mammoth … but I digress. The question I really hear in this is: "what kind of woman does it take to do that?" A woman with a ginormous heart and steel spine, like Gwen. Gwen is a tough cookie, a heroine for her country and for all of us.
husband, Drew, is my idea of the perfectly imperfect hero. He loves her enough to
let her go—until it looks like they might have a chance at love, forever. Until some
cool plot twists (skim past them if you don't like murder scenes) threaten their
last-chance-at-love. To top it off, Gwen's adopting the baby she saved from a village
torched by terrorists! Because it's a romance novel, we know the ending will satisfy
all—but it takes a journey to get there. I hope you fall in love with Gwen and Drew
as I did. Please let me know—and stay tuned for a sneak peek excerpt!
Coming November 2014
Whidbey Island Series #4
Geri worked with the National League of POW/MIA Families to raffle off the chance to choose the name of a character in Navy Christmas.
The winner of the raffle, Dawn Dempsey, has chosen to honor her grandfather, a real WWII Navy veteran. Look for Charles G. Dempsey—a character named after a real American hero—when Geri's book releases in November 2014!
More details are here.
Readers can look forward to more from Whidbey Island in 2015!
