The Defiant Hero - Suzanne Brockmann Not my favorite in this series. I really didn't like Meg and never warmed up much to Nils. In fact, my favorite part was Eve and the WWII flashbacks This is the first time I've read one of the WWII story lines in this series that had a happy ending and I was glad for it.. It also felt pretty repetitive. If felt like both Alyssa and Sam and Meg and Nils were having some of the same conversations over and over. Again the WWII plot with Eve and Ralph felt more fresh. I've read others in the series and know that I like them better so I'll just chalk this one up to "not my fave in the series" but I'll still read more from it.
