“Our lives are nothing but a conspiracy and if we don’t think outside the box, we’ll never figure it all out.”


I’ve been eager to read this third book of the series. The premise of four Navy Seals on a top secret mission returning home after six years only to find that their family and love ones have buried them months into their mission is so intriguing. In this story, Tucker McCoy finds out where his wife Penny and their daughter Claire have vanished to.

I needed this book. I didn't even realize how much until I read it!
The Archer Brothers were awesome and I was smitten with them both in the first two books in this series. I hate to tell them, but Tucker has grabbed my heart and claimed me as his own.
Oh, Tucker.
With his fierceness, strength, and tenacity, he's the epitome of the alpha male we all love. But it's not over-the-top. The kindness that's laced into his personality is refreshing, lending him a uniqueness that I won't soon forget.

Omg best book in the series to date! I finished this book at 4a bec I could not put it down. The story captivated me and I had to read it thru to find out what would happened. Action packed, suspenseful, emotional and heart warming, Heidi has written a series that I can imagine on the big screen! Fans of this series will love Tucker's story. Selfishly, I want the other SEALs to find their happiness too (Heidi hint hint!) ...more

Save Me by Heidi McLaughlin

I want to start this review by saying that I believe that Save Me is Heidi McLaughlin’s best book to date. Save Me is well written, thoughtful and an absolutely wonderful read that I loved from page one until the very end!

Save Me is book 3 in The Archer Brothers series, but it can also be read as a stand-alone. The author added a preface before the prologue giving you some background details as well as lots of information throughout the book, making it easy not to fe

I was impatiently waiting to read this book. McCoy caught my attention in Here With Me and Choose Me. I am so happy we got his story. McCoy was deployed for six years then comes home to his wife and daughter missing. He will do whatever it takes to find his family and get his answers. Heidi wrote this book in a way that has you glued to every page. They feels in this book are off the charts.

I absolutely loved the first two Archer Brothers books, so naturally I was thrilled to find out there would be a third and it would be about Tucker. I knew there was no way Heidi would disappoint, but man, she blew my expectations straight out of the water! This book was fan-freaking-tastic! How Heidi continues to come up with these crazy plots is beyond me, but I hope she never stops.

Loved this one from beginning to end. I really felt bad for McCoy and his situation. I like how he didn't give up and I like his method of torture if he got his hands on Frannie. He lost so much time with his family just like the other guys because of sick twisted people.
Penny loved Tucker from the very beginning and she's a great mom. She'll do whatever she had to to protect her family. Both Tucker and Penny truly love each other. They are willing to do whatever to see the other happy. Early o

Tucker is on a mission to find his wife and daughter and will leave no stone unturned until he finds them. From the very start you can't help but be pulled into Tucker's story as he searches for his family and the anguish he feels while on his journey.
What really made me love this story is that it's not a new love being formed but searching for a love that was taken away and having the uncertain possibility of regaining that love and doing everything in your power to get it back.

Great addition to the series BUT probably my 3rd favorite of the three that have been released.

It was awesome to get Tucker's story, and I truly was hurting for both him and Penny. But everything Evan graced the page, my heart almost leaped out of my chest. I still hurt for him soooo badly, even though his life is on the mend!

Anyway, this book was so great. Emotional, dramatic, tense, mysterious. It had all that I needed from a classic Heidi McLaughlin novel.

Heidi has done it again! If you have read her books, you know they are all amazing. Save Me is no exception. Although it is Book 3 in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Heidi did a great job explaining things in the beginning, so even if you haven’t read the other books you will be good and catch up quickly.

As a quick background, this series is about 4 Navy Seals who were deployed and declared dead when they weren’t really. They come home and things are not what they expect. Save Me is

The Archer Brothers Series is absolutely fan-FREAKING-tastic!!!! I have been a huge fan since book one. I'm going to be completely honest here. If I was asked which of the Archer Brothers books was my #1 favorite....I seriously would NOT be able to answer. All three of these books are hands down without a question FIVE STAR reads. This is without a doubt one of my favorite book series. Heidi McLaughlin did not disappoint in Save Me.

We first met Tucker McCoy in Here With Me as one of the four Navy SEALs who were sent out on a mission, but unbeknownst to them nothing was as it seems.

Tucker has lost his family, a wife and daughter who moved away to somewhere unknown. Save Me follows Tucker on his journey to unravel the conspiracy surrounding Frannie, who we learned in Choose Me was behind their disappearance.

I can't explain enough how much I loved this book. I was drawn in from the first line, each page holding me captive. I

I have been looking forward to Save Me and it sure did not disappoint! My heart went out to Tucker who thought he was going home to a wife and daughter only to find they had all but vanished. While you do not need to read the first two in the series to enjoy this book, it only enhanced my love of everyone involved in this book in helping to locate Tucker's family. I love that the whole gang got involved so we got to see SEALs Archer, McCoy, and Rask together in action as well as other key player ...more

This was Tucker and Penny's story and I'm so glad that he got his own book! Tucker came home from being on a SEAL mission for six years to find his wife and daughter gone. They were no where to be found and no one knew where they had gone. This tells you about the struggles that he goes through and why Penny just disappea

I think this is my favorite book of Heidi's. It was well written and I loved the story. It had me on the edge of my seat as I didn't know what to expect and it certainly didn't go the way I thought it would. Without talking spoilers I am so glad it ending the way it did although there were many hiccups along the way.

Thanks for writing such a great book Heidi!

Ok I loved Tucker McCoy! He is the man! He has returned home with his fellow Navy seals presumed dead for over 5 1/2 years to find his wife and child missing. He starts a frantic search for Penny and Claire! The answers all come in this book! Loved it! 5 stars!

Heidi McLaughlin brings the Archer Brothers series to a close with McCoy’s story in Save Me. Delivering more of Evan, Ryley, Nate, Cara, and the rest of this great cast, this novel expertly conveyed the deeply rooted sense of camaraderie and unconditional love that only these characters can deliver. McCoy’s quest to find his wife and daughter exuded the mystery and emotion I’ve come to adore from this series as we got to experience the vulnerability and fear and that made this warrior so undenia ...more

I'm truly excited and honoured to get to review an ARC of Save Me by Heidi McLaughlin in exchange for an honest and spoiler free review. This great story deserves a 5 star review.

I've been sitting here staring at the computer for well over an hour and I still can't come up with the words to express how much I love this book...I mean the fact that there are more than 4 stars should tell you something, I am super stingy with those. But, the words to convey my love are evading me. Perhaps that's why Heidi McLaughlin is the author and I am a mere reader. There is no denying that I am a fan of hers, but lets be honest we all have our favorites. Many of mine come and go, I fin ...more

This is Book Three in The Archer Brothers series and its main focus is on Tucker McCoy the third member of the SEAL team that everyone thought was dead for six years and his search for his family that went missing after their deaths were announced with no trail whatsoever. I've been waiting not so patiently for this third book for a very long time and while the wait was torturous, it was more than worth it because this book delivered and delivered BIG

This is the kind of book I live to read. Mystery. Suspense. With a mix of romance. This story was emotional, heartfelt and gut-wrenching. Heidi will not only take you on a ride but take you on an emotional journey. She’ll break you’re heart and then help you put the pieces back.

   Last book in this series. Nothing would have stopped me from reading this book, not even had I been told it would irritate me to no end.    
      I will say I am a Tucker McCoy fan. That I understand why Penny did what she did. Also that this book was captivating.
   This third book had more suspense added in, and more bad guys exposed. Which was interesting I just had a few problems along the way. First and foremost, we really never find out who was sending the pictures of Claire/Chole?!?!

This is one of my most anticipated books for 2016 and it did not disappoint! I stayed up until 5am this morning because I just could not put this book down. Full of action, suspense, heartaches and joy - Tucker McCoy's story is finally told, questions are answered and more questions are formed. A suspenseful tale and have you second guessing what you thought to be true and shocked when you find the truth. I LOVED THIS BOOK HARD!
