    1. 4.5***** stars I thoroughly enjoy this emotionally-charged story of a military vet returned from Iraq who suffers from a very severe case of PTSD. Ms. McQueen obviously did a lot of research on this subject and it shows in her vivid descriptions. When Adam experiences an attack, it’s as if I were living through it with him. His pain is palpable and affected me deeply. This disease is real and affects a great many young men and women who have fought for this amazing country we are so blessed to [...]

At times he is crippled with fear and anxiety. Both Tesha and Adam are tort [...]

    5. While attending a recent author/reader event I wandered past the table of Author Hildie McQueen. Instantly the title "Even Heroes Cry" caught my attention. The book cover wasn't hard to look at either! Of course I bought it! After returning home from the weekend of two author/reader events and over 20 books I'd purchased, it was "Even Heroes Cry" that I picked up first. I wasn't 3 chapters in when it sounded so familiar, so I had to reach out to Author Hildie and did learn it had been in an anth [...]

    11. 3.5+ RATING- It's hard for me to resist a wounded warrior romance so when I saw this book was on sale, I grabbed it. I wasn't sure what to expect since this was a "new to me' author. Overall, the story wasn't perfect but it was a fairly solid read. There were a few editing issues, nothing major. I liked both of the characters, enjoyed their chemistry, and appreciatd their sturggles. I'd read more from this author and would recommend this book to other readers especially if they like wounded warr [...]

    12. Wow !!!!! I was unable to put this book down until I had completed it. I loved the characters & their individual stories. More importantly was the way the author brought out the PTSD. That was real. I felt it. While I am excited about the future books & can hardly wait for them to be published, I will never forget how the author helped this reader see a slim part of what war costs a veteran & their loved ones. I know other readers will enjoy this story & encourage them to dive in [...]

    13. Excellent book. I really appreciate the realness of the issues Adam was dealing with. As a member of a large military family it is enlightening when they are portrayed realistically. The tragic and some times devastating issues the boys/girls return with are heartbreaking and enlightening. I have to say this book made me sad and I wasn't sure if I could finish it. I am glad I did because I had a smile on my face by the time I got to the last page.

    14. Tesha and Adam's love story is tainted by war. Hildie McQueen does a wonderful job of exposing how war impacts our veterans, but also, she exposes the ongoing pain of the families who are watching their loved ones suffer. As Adam, home from Afghanistan, deals with PTSD, he finds love in the arms of Tesha - a war widow who is suffering too. The support of their small town of Lovely is heartwarming.

    15. This is a quick read but very intense. Having never been around someone that has PTSD, this was a new experience with me. The story line is simple, if not a bit predictable. However, Adam's character is complex to Tesha's simple. The combination is perfect. I recommend reading this if you are a fan of military/veteran romances.

    16. A great start to a new seriesI thoroughly enjoyed reading Tesha and Adam's story. The author was able to convey the pain felt by so many military families both for the loss of a loved one and also the trauma of PTSD. There were a few editing errors that slipped back but overall this is a well-written and enjoyable book.

    17. This was my first Hildie McQueen book. Other than a few minor editing blips, this story was a smooth read. I enjoyed the story and the characters were awesome. I look forward to reading more from Ms McQueen. This book is a complete book, not a cliffhanger.

    18. I couldn't imagine what our armed forces deal with on a daily basis when they are deployed and what they have to deal with when they return to civilian life. Hildie McQueen allowed me to see and understand a small part of their lives and their families.

    19. Brought together by a tragedy, who knew someone would understand. My heart broke for both soo much pain and loss and it's really about surviving and learning how to start over Adam and Tesha I was rooting for them whole time a good read

    20. Ms. McQueen writes an emotionally charged story of two people, devastated by the same war, trying to get their lives back together. Read full review in the 2015 April issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    21. Read this story as part of the Hometown Heroes box set and fell in love with these characters. As someone with a friend whose husband suffers from PTSD, I enjoyed seeing the portrayal of this hero. The struggles that not only the vet, but also their families deal with. Amazing story.

    22. Good book. Adam suffers from PTSD and Tesha his neighbor lost her husband in the war. This book is about how they help each other recover and fall in love.

    23. I loved how real this book was. Adam's PTSD was portrayed realistically, not brushed over like you often read. It was a great story and I'm excited to read the rest of the brothers' love stories too.
