Very enjoyable

SS has been building up to Moose and Penelope's story for a very long time, and it doesn't quite live up to the build-up. That said, it's still a strong entry in the Texas Heroes series. Moose is absolutely wonderful and Penelope's battle with her PTSD is heartbreaking at times. She's a strong woman, who struggles with survivors guilt after being taken hostage in Iraq and he gives her the combination of support and tough love she needs to face her demons.

Amazing

The story was heartbreaking but also beautiful. Susan Stoker has written so many wonderfully awesome books. This finale of this series was so rich in emotions and comradeship I couldn’t stop listening. Erin Mallon is one of my favorite narrators and she did a super job with her inflections and her female/male voices. Well done!

Just Meh.

I disnt hate this book but didnt particularly love it either. Most of the book was focused in Pen getting her head out of her butt and I felt there was just very little content. I get it. Pen suffers from PTSD and I know the struggle is real but is just dragged on. So overall I liked the book but I will probably never read it again.

Good but not great

Susan Stoker is always an automatic download for me but this book didn’t seem to measure up to all her previous books. Having said that I’m still a big fan and have all of her books which I can listen to again and again. Love the stories and all the wonderful characters!

Fight like a girl!

Penelope and Moose have so much to overcome in their story. From Penelope's capture in Turkey to the deaths of White and Black, to her nervous breakdown when Koren was trapped, all caused her to run away from the one person who could help her. But Moose never gave up. He waited for the moment he could show her the depth of his love.
What a great ending to the series!

Disappointed

I really wanted to like this book and was looking forward to listening to it. I’m was expecting a more realistic story of the trauma a hostage of ISIS would endure, especially a woman. Instead I was reading what was just about survivor guilt with none of the horror a prisoner would have endured at the hands of terrorists. I am a fan of Susan Stoker, but don’t feel this was her best effort.

Recommended

First, While all the stories in TX Heroes are stand-alone. I highly recommend reading/hearing all of them as well as 'Protecting The Future' in the SEAL of Protection series and 'Emily's Wedding' in the Delta Forces 1 series, first. All of these stories build up to 'Shelter for Penelope'. I know it's a lot but very worth it.

I loved this story. It is different from any of the other Susan Stoker stories I've read/heard. This story is about Penelope and her story from the 'Army Princess' to current day. I liked how it shows her struggles with PTSD and survivors guilt. It features many characters from previous stories. It is also a story about how important having personal support is to those who hurt.

My only criticism is that this story shows a level of suffering the other stories hint of but don't always exhibit.

Erin Mallon did another fabulous job.

Wow!!

I love all her books but this one... I think so far it’s my favorite... I know she says it can be read as a stand alone but I would definitely recommend to listen or read the others in order to appreciate Penelope and Moose. Loved it!!
