Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Her Reluctant Hero

A dream shattered – a love jilted – a heart broken. People change. Is there a second chance for love above the clouds? It’s the swinging sixties. An ex-fiancé flies back into a stewardess’s life. He dumped her once. But this war veteran knows what he wants now. Torn between attraction and fear, will she head for the runway or the hangar? She’s left behind her past, with its small-town values and jilted love to see the world and become independent. He’s returned from war and death with a single goal—to redeem the worst mistake of his life. She wants nothing to do with him. He wants her as his wife. Will their flight end with an emergency landing—a total crash—or a perfect glide into the right airport, the right gate, and the right destination?

Laura Richards is awakened with her home in fames. The young fireman is a volunteer named Josh Langford. He carries her to safety, but all she learns is his name. Then their lives cross again at Texas Tech where they become an item. But Josh is an ROTC cadet, and this is 1968. He knows he’ll be heading for Vietnam, and doesn’t want to leave a widow, so breaks up with her. While he is in Vietnam, Laura becomes an airline stewardess. Their paths cross again when he flies home, and now Josh wants to pursue Laura, but she wants nothing to do with him.

The author always does her homework in researching the period her stories are set in. This interesting romance is set during the war in South East Asia. The helicopter school at Fort Wolters in Mineral Wells, Texas is almost forgotten now, but I was there is 1966/67, and remember it fondly, as I remember coming home from Vietnam, and the airline stewardess that served me on the plane from California to DFW in Texas. A flight I will never forget. Reading this novella reminded me of my own past, and it helped me connect to the characters. It was fun reading about Laura and Josh, and their falling in love again after so many mistakes. Highly recommended.
