    Marine Abel Yeager is on a delayed honeymoon in Hawaii, when a bunch of Hawaiian separatists, with backing from mysterious advisers, perpetrate a multi-pronged terrorist attack, creating a state of chaos.On the island of Molokai, the terrorists happen upon Yeager's tour group and take most of them captive. Yeager, and three septuagenarian Vietnam vets escape. The odds are just about even.Pretty good story, with a lot of excitement.

    Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.Abel and Charlotte Yeager have finally found time to take a belated honeymoon. A Hawaiian cruise sounds like bliss, doesn’t it? Except that Hawaiian separatists and their foreign advisers have picked this exact moment to make their booming statement. Now Yeager is thrown into another fight for his and Charlie’s lives and with the help of a few good Marines he’s determined to win the day.Wow! This is a rip-roaring ride from beginning to end. Ho Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.Abel and Charlotte Yeager have finally found time to take a belated honeymoon. A Hawaiian cruise sounds like bliss, doesn’t it? Except that Hawaiian separatists and their foreign advisers have picked this exact moment to make their booming statement. Now Yeager is thrown into another fight for his and Charlie’s lives and with the help of a few good Marines he’s determined to win the day.Wow! This is a rip-roaring ride from beginning to end. Honestly, I think the Yeager books should be made into action movies. They are that exciting. I don’t know any other way to describe this book than fan-fucking-tastic! But I’ll try. Due to my love of books 1 & 2 I went into this book with high expectations. I can say with utmost certainty that book 3 does not disappoint. I love Yeager, Charlie, Por Que and the cast of characters they pick up along the way. Abel may be the star but the writing carries the reader along at a fast clip and the action is edge-of-your-seat making this one hell of a good read. I did have a couple of minor issues with it which did not interfere with my enjoyment of the story and one would be a kind of spoiler so I won’t mention them or it here. If you read the book (and why the hell wouldn’t you?!) then you’ll either spot them or you won’t. I also love the ending when it’s obvious that Yeager and Por Que are going on another adventure. I can’t wait!Note: While this is book 3 in the series it can be read as a standalone. But why? Why would you do that?!Bonus review by my husband (a Marine) who is not a writer of reviews:I love it! It's action-packed and fast-paced and I have no major issues with it except for one instance of the term "ex-Marine". There are no ex-Marines. And a huge thank you to the author for capitalizing Marine. A victory for me and my fellow Marines in the world of editing. I also agree with my wife. I think all the books would make great movies.

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.

    This is my third Yeager novel. I burned through it in two days. The author has written another great read, filled with fascinating characters, a unique plot and setting, and of course, Abel Yeager.Abel does not play. Mess with him or those he loves, you will pay the price.Scott Bell really know his stuff. Whether it's action, romance, or humor--all within these pages--he knows exactly how to convey it. He also knows how to write villains a reader wants killed. I also enjoyed the Vietnam Vets in This is my third Yeager novel. I burned through it in two days.

    Another absorbing read from Bell.Familiar characters from the first two books in this series combine skills with Vietnam era Marine retirees to spin a riveting story of a terrorist attack on Honolulu. Yeager and Charlie, his wife, happen to be vacationing in Hawaii and, when Charlie takes a hiking tour of Molokai, things begin to pop in typical Scott Bell style. Plenty of guns, knives, and bloody skirmishes as Yeager attempts to rescue Charlie and the hikers from a jungle terrorist camp.

    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 strength, loyalty, love and friendship in this story is great and I look forward to hearing more tales of Yeager and his friends.

    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.
