Summary

A Honeymoon...Abel Yeager Style.

Abel Yeager has settled into a life of domestic bliss with his lovely wife, Charlotte. He’s left the violence and bloodshed behind to concentrate on being a good father and husband. For their long-delayed honeymoon, Abel and Charlie take a Hawaiian cruise. They’re looking forward to hiking volcanoes and sightseeing, once they meet up with Victor "Por Que" Ruiz and his new love, Dr. Alexandra Lopez.

Their idyllic vacation explodes in violence when a group of Hawaiian separatists, incited by a foreign power, rip through the islands, leaving blood and destruction in their wake. When Charlie is caught up with a group of hostages held by the terrorists as human shields, Abel is forced back into warrior mode.

The Hawaiians are supported by a few dozen foreign special forces soldiers, modern gear, and plenty of munitions. Abel has the help of three septuagenarian Vietnam veteran Marines and his pal Victor. Outnumbered and outgunned, Abel will stop at nothing to rescue his wife.

Unforseen sights

This book is about a group of retired Marines who are on holiday in Hawaii when a group of terrorist attempt to take over the islands. The group must attempt to rescue the members of the tour group who have been taken and then stop the terrorist before they can complete their objective.

The story is very intense and the excitement keeps you interested in the book. The narrator lends life to the story.

Silent, disciplined, deadly.

The honeymoon was already beginning to feel slightly less than idyllic as Yeager and his adored wife, Charlotte, together with a small group of others from their cruise ship, began to feel the exhaustion from an elected hike through the wooded Conservation Park. It was an unexpectedly hot summer, bugs were biting and the going hard, especially since a number of the party were elderly and unfit. One seventy something, in particular, was looking unwell and felt unable to go on with the group after a brief rest break. Unable to leave him alone to follow later, the tour guide agreed that Yeager could stay with him and the man's two ex-marine Vietnam veteran friends elected to wait with him, too. Which was why, when the shooting started, they were separated from the main group and not seen by the terrorists ...

This is a thrilling story of an attempted insurrection by Hawaiian seperatists, aided and assisted by soldiers from an outside power, intent on protesting against the annexation of Hawaii by America, and using terrorism to do this. Seen from various perspectives, the characterisation is excellent, the people feel very real and the whole event frighteningly plausible. Adding to the power of this story is the narration by J.Scott Bennett whose pleasant on the ear, gentle drawl has warmth on the surface but with undertones of danger. His voicing of all of the protagonists is also good. A fine performance which adds greatly to the experiencing of the book.

Scott Bell's Yeagers's Getaway is apparently the third in a series but not having read the earlier stories didn't matter: this was a first for me but will not be my last. Action packed, the book still took time for the protagonists to rest, and talk, and plan as well as giving them a reality in the world in which they found themselves at the time. Nicely written, too, with touches of wry humour along the way.
My thanks to the rights holder of this book, who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy. I know that this story will stay with me, unlike many other thrillers, well into the future because of the sense it gave me of being there, in the story, with the characters themselves.
Recommended.

Nail biting, suspenseful, action packed book!

Abel Yeager's adventures are super exciting. You will not have a minute of down time to fall asleep. Trouble seems to find him wherever he goes and he handles it with gusto. I was on the edge of my seat the whole book, the narrator was top notch. I would recommend this book for anyone who is in to action and thrillers!

Thrilling story

This is another great Abel Yeager story. Even on honeymoon trouble seems to search him out, but old friends and new come together to battle the bad guys. This book is full of action, perseverance, battles, camaraderie and characters you can’t help but like. I loved the inclusion of the elderly marines and how even though they were long past retirement they didn’t hesitate to step back into their old roles. To continue to serve, and to protect. The narrator did a great job of all the accents, giving each character an individual voice and really bringing the book to life. The strength, loyalty, love and friendship in this story is great and I look forward to hearing more tales of Yeager and his friends.

I live for the next Yeager adventure!

Another excellent adventure with Abel Yeager and his wife Charlie and Victor "Por Que" Ruiz and the good Doctor Alexandra. A late honeymoon and the chance to holiday with their friends Victor and Alexandra bring the two couples to Hawaii.
But their timing stinks and the adventures begin.
Probably best if you have read the first two books to really sink your teeth into this 3rd book. These characters are amazing and to spend time with them is a treat and a privilege. I own the kindle and paperback novels of this book as well as the audio.
J. Scott Bennett the narrator has the perfect voice to tell this tough and rugged story. He is my favorite narrator.

Action-packed and suspenseful

Abel Yeager is joined by a few more quircky characters in this over-the-top action thriller. The story is exciting, but there are a few too many injuries and close-calls for it to be truly realistic. Nevertheless, the likable characters and nail-biting suspense are enough to keep one listening to the satisfying end.

J. Scott Bennett delivers a solid performance consistent with his narration of the previous audiobooks in this series. This remains a series to follow.

Great Job

This book definitely will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you wanting more. The performance was spot on and brought the world and characters to life. Will have to go back and listen to the first two now. I was given a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.

Very exciting story!

This action packed tale is extremely well written and narrated by a very talented individual. I didn't get the opportunity to listen to the first 2 books in this series, but it's totally not necessary since each one stands alone.

Great addition to the Yeager-series

Story: 4/5
Hawaiian terrorists, North Koreans soldiers, 3 Vietnam veterans and an ex marine. The perfect formula for a funny, brutal and exciting story, with twists an a whole bucket of swearing. Nicely written, with perfect pacing and detailed, but not overwhelming descriptions.
A must have for fans of military stories with a touch of love.

My only problem with the audiobook is the description of location and time everytime the plot changes places. in written form that might not be a problem, but here it gets old really fast. -0.5 Stars

Narrator: 4/5
Great narration, thrilling from first to last word. -1 Stars for not having multiple narrators.

Very good

This audiobook was very good. The author writes in a way that the characters are very relatable. The narrator has the perfect voice for this story. It has a lot of action and suspense in it.
