I found Jessica Scott’s books as soon as her very first book was released in 2011. I love her voice and thanks to her, I have an even bigger appreciation for the men and women in the military and their families. I was lucky enough to met Jess at RWA in Atlanta this year and it was totally one of the highlights of my trip. As she has 2 more stories coming out soon in her Coming Home Series, I decided it was time to spotlight her books.
