Absolution was amazing. Older couple, female fighting an illness, second chance romance, action and suspense. I should have read the rest of the series first because this is the last book in the series and Em & Luke appear in the previous books. I will go back and read them. If you want to read how delicate and beautiful a man can be toward his sick wife, read this book, there is a lot of emotion and turmoil but it does have a HEA. Definite 5 star read.
