I remember the first time I was asked that question. It was during an interview and I thought to myself…now that’s a silly question! Looking back on it now, I don’t think so.
When I approached retirement, I thought how lovely it would be to paint landscapes, practice the piano, garden–I even bought a sewing machine so I could be creative that way, as I had been when I was a young mother. Then it happened! That simple statement from a friend that brought my whole idea of retirement crashing down around me.
Today we get a sneak peek of author Linda Rae Blair’s seventh book in The Preston Andrews Mysteries series, Press ‘n SEAL:
Admiral Poindexter has a serious problem and only his friend’s son can help. If the wrong people discover that he has asked for help, someone he loves will die—quickly, horribly. Snuffed out like a candle.
Press, Rachel and Trace do what they can. It soon becomes obvious to Press that he’s going to need the help of his own best friend since childhood—Lieutenant Commander James Harticutt, Navy SEAL Team 6.
None of them could know then that a matter of weeks would have made a disastrous difference in the outcome of their search for an undercover CIA agent somewhere in the Middle East.
