Review: Headed for Trouble
Headed for Trouble by Suzanne Brockmann
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is not what I expected. Still it was a great read. It's an insightful collection into both Ms. Brockmann's mind as well as the different characters from SEAL Team 16 and their friends. There is a little bit of everything in here. From interactions between the characters and the author to poignant separation between daughter and mother.
Just about every type of relationship is covered in this book in reference to a person who is serving our country. The reader is treated to a close up of those the military personnel leave behind. The wives, husbands, brothers, lovers, sons and daughters. It's a good look at the worry and gut clenching fear they suffer when a loved one is fighting for our country. Ms. Brockmann shows it in a manner easy to relate and understand. It's not a lecture and there are no rights or wrong. What the reader sees, is realistic worries and fears.
Not all the short stories are anxiety filled. Some are humourous as a new member of the team is added to an existing one. The camaraderie between those serving together is a pleasure to witness. The last short story in this collection is definitely a cliffhanger which makes me want to read the next story in this series. This collection is recommended for Troubleshooter lovers who want a little something to tide them over.
