I'll Be Home For Christmas (Coming Home #2.5)
by Jessica Scott
There's nothing in the world Army Sergeant Vic Carponti loves more than his wife and his country. Smart-mouthed and easy tempered, he takes everything as a joke...except his promise to come home to his wife, Nicole, for Christmas. As he prepares to leave for his latest deployment into Iraq, Vic will do everything he can to shield his beautiful, supportive wife from the realities of war...and from his own darkest fears.
As a career army wife, Nicole Carponti knows just what to expect from her husband's tour of duty: loneliness, relentless worry, and a seemingly endless countdown until the moment Vic walks through the door again. But when the unthinkable happens, Nicole and Vic's bond is tested like never before and changes everything they believe to be true about the power of love and the simple beauty of being home for the holidays.
Army Sergeant Vic Carponti is preparing to leave for another deployment. He tries to act like it's just another tour and keep his wife from knowing he is scared. This trip feels different from the normal one. He is the one who keeps everyone's spirits up in the war. He loves his wife very much and just wants to come home to her. Nicole is used to her husband going to war but it doesn't stop her from worrying. They try their best to keep things going smoothly till something bad happens. He might not make it home for the holidays after all.
I really enjoyed this story as you get both Vic and Nicole's POV. You get to see both sides of them being lonely and how they try to do little things for each other to keep the fires going. Vic is the type of guy you just love. He does whatever he can to keep the other soldiers spirits up. He has a few problems with a higher up officer and he doesn't back down. A few times he gets way down but he hides it. You will get a kick on how he passes his time. I love all the things he does for Nicole. Nicole tries to pass her time staying busy but she has many heart stopping moments when she doesn't hear from Vic. When he is do home and something goes wrong. She will stop at nothing to be with him. She is the perfect match for Vic. This book will show you glimpse inside the soldier and soldiers family lives. You have joy with them and sadness. I recommend this book for anyone wanting a good book about a great couple.
