Sometimes books can surprise you even when you weren’t looking to be surprised. This happened to me upon picking up The Executive Officer’s Wife. I chose this novel for the usual reasons: the synopsis intrigued me and I love a good power struggle between two hardheaded characters. Based on my experience with this press, I expected the book to be good, but I wasn’t quite prepared for just HOW good it was.

Strong characters are the cornerstone of any truly excellent novel and this book is no except

There are lots of things to love about The Executive Officer’s Wife, starting with the author’s writing voice which is clear, smooth, and makes for an easy to read story. I was also impressed with her characters, each of which was fully developed and well-rounded. Her understanding of the military is obvious and she did a wonderful job incorporating authentic military issues into the story in an organic manner.
I have to admit that whenever I see reviews that immediately start to talk about sex,

I adored this story. Libby Calhoun is the feisty daughter of a high ranking Marine. She's been messed around pretty badly and is reluctant to fall for the same thing a second time. I really liked Libby from the start and loved that she was defiant and stubborn.

Lila Munro writes fun characters that are easy to like. I read this very quickly simply because I was enjoying getting involved with the colourful life of the Marines. The parties, the frocks, the cakes! I won't post spoilers but all I wil

A really, really nice love story with a well-written and researched context of the Marine Corp. It is a great look-see into the world of the military dependent family, the loneliness, the need to be extra competent and self-reliant. But that can get someone in trouble when being in a relationship--giving up a little of that control, becoming interdependent and learning to share one's life. A very nice read.

I really enjoyed this story. I loved the characters from the very beginning and the storyline kept me hooked throughout the entire book. This was my 1st read by this author and will certainly be reading more of her in the future.

I enjoyed the book and the story was easy to read. I didn't find it as realistic as it should have been considering it is advertised as "realmantic" but it was definitely far from the fairytale storyline. It was a little predictable and the ending felt rushed but all in all it was a good read.
