About Returning Injury: A Suspense Celebrating Women’s Strength

Rebecca’s life just keeps getting better.  With Jack away on business, she’s looking forward to four days alone to work on her new client’s PR campaign to help women take back their lives.  But her past intrudes.  Roy, the man who stalked and assaulted her years before, has been released from prison.  Home alone in her big, beautiful house out in the country, Rebecca has to learn to take back her own life while facing her fears and regaining her strength.  But will she be strong enough when she faces the ultimate test?

My Review:
I love to read books that help empower women to see that no matter what the rest of the world might think, we are strong and worth just as much as the man standing in line with us. 
Becky touched on a lot of issues that plague women in the world today, and helps to show that there are many forms of abuse that us women face daily.
All of Becky's character's are strong, independent women who aren't afraid to take charge and go for what they want. 
The main character, Rebecca, has finally gotten everything she wants in life, but is plagued by the imanent release of her abusive-stalker ex that she sent to prison years ago. With his release looming and her wonderful hubby out of town; Rebecca and her pug "Lily"  are left home alone and during that time rebecca is very nervous of every noise she hears.
Throughout the story Rebecca realizes she needs to take control of her life and stop being the victim.
 Overall, I think this is a good book that is very successful in portraying women in a strong, positive light.
