EX MARKS THE SPOT
Air Force Colonel Andrea Armstrong is forced into temporary retirement when she's disabled by a bacterial infection after being wounded in Iraq. Lost without her career, she temporarily moves to an area of military retirees in Florida to live near her best friend. It turns out that her rented house is next to that of Dave Armstrong, the colonel who also happens to be her ex-husband. Andi is dismayed by her unflagging attraction to him, and Dave is determined to restart their relationship. Filled with humor, wonderfully warm characters, great military details and a splendid romance, Ex Marks the Spot (4.5), by Merline Lovelace, is a winner from the first page.
