In an unfortunate life-altering tragedy, Kellie finds comfort and strength in responding officer Deputy Lance Malloy. Following in his father’s footsteps, Lance is the paragon of what an officer should be; professional, passionate, and committed. He and his fellow officers are more than family, and they have each other’s backs, come hell or high water. When Lance suffers an unthinkable tragedy of his own, he finds himself yearning for the comfort of an unlikely source. Family of Blue by Kaylee Rose delves into the otherwise unknown depths of the immense sacrifices made by our officers and, by extension, their loved ones.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m on edge waiting for the next installment. Ending on a cliff-hanger, I need to know what happens next. Kaylee Rose has done a superb job with this gem. So real and believable, her writing is natural and effortless with the ability to create vivid imagery and characters that you feel a deep connection with. The emotion in this book is raw and palpable. I found myself fully invested in the characters and really drawn into their lives and experiences. I cried and I laughed out loud, I felt hope and I felt despair. Tragedy, grief, romance, love, humor, and wit are all skillfully portrayed with undeniable authenticity. I’ve gained a different perspective and a renewed respect for our officers who put it all on the line to keep our communities safe. I would highly recommend adding Family of Blue to your list of must-reads.
