About the Book
Everyone has a war story to tell.
A jaded cop struggling to come to terms with her past falls for an idealistic former Marine-turned-cat rescuer on the crime-infested streets of West Baltimore.
Hope Kennedy is a cynical Baltimore cop. Her beat is the Mondawmin area of West Baltimore—the most dangerous neighborhood in America’s most dangerous city. And she’s struggling—unsuccessfully—to overcome a terrible event that has come to shape her life. Hope’s become angry and bitter. She’s spiralling out of control. Hope has lost hope.
Luke Matthews is a decorated Marine Corps combat veteran. He received the Purple Heart for a wound inflicted in Afghanistan. Now, he works as a carpenter for a nonprofit that builds homes for disabled vets. In his spare time, he volunteers with a local cat rescue. But Luke’s battling his own demons. He’s haunted by the war. Specifically, by a fog of war experience—a tragic accident—that has left him racked with guilt.
Can two badly wounded, bruised, purple hearts come together and help one another heal?
