TAYLOR (In The Company of Snipers, #7) 
By: Irish Winters 
Pages: 313

Publisher: Windy Day Press

He’s had enough…

Stoic ex-Marine, Taylor Armstrong, survived his arrogant father, USMC General Michael Armstrong, and one too many deployments in Afghanistan. Battered and disillusioned with life, he’s built a wall to keep the world at bay. His rule is simple: a man can’t lose a friend he’s never made. It works—until an arrow rips into his chest and changes everything he knew about his father. His mother. Himself….

She’s never given up hope…

Gracie Fox has loved Taylor since the fateful day he was ripped from her life as a four-year old. But he has no memory of her or his mother’s rich Native American heritage. Neither is he aware of the loving family that was forced to give him up. It seems he’ll never know—until an ancient rite of revenge, the blood hunt, collides with his carefully structured life. Gracie seizes the chance. She’ll do anything to help him remember....
 Even tie him to her bed.

Meet the Author:
 Irish Winters is an award-winning author who dabbles in poetry, grandchildren, and rarely (as in extremely rarely) the kitchen. More prone to be outdoors than in, she grew up the quintessential tomboy on a farm in rural Wisconsin, spent her teenage years in the Pacific Northwest, but calls the Wasatch Mountains of Northern Utah home. For now.

The wife of one handsome husband and the mother of three perfect sons, Irish divides her time between writing at home and travelling the country with her man while - writing. (Seriously, what else?)

She believes in making every day count for something and follows the wise admonition of her mother to, "Look out the window and see something!"

This is a great read. 
Taylor gets to find out things about a family he didn't know. He gets to find his true love. I think the love Taylor is shown by others is great. TAYLOR is a very well written book. It keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more and more. 

Irish Winters is a new to me Author that I now love.

...Cal's damaged heart is replaced. But his life will never be the same. 

Everyone expects him to pick up the pieces and move on.But Lizzie is gone, and all that remains for Cal is an overwhelming sense that her death was his fault. And a voice in his head that just...won't...stop. 

Cal thought he and his friends could overcome any obstacle. But grief might be the one exception.   

And that might take a lifetime to accept...

I loved this book.
 The character I can relate the most to is Lizzie. I had an alcoholic in my life growing up. I am glad that Spencer and Cal were there for Lizzie to help her when she needed it. Cal has been through loss in his life. I am glad that Cal is talking to Ally. I think she will be good for him. This book is well written. WHAT REMAINS is a book that makes you wonder what will happen next.
Definitely give this book a try. I know I'm glad I did. 
About the Author:
Helene Dunbar usually writes features about fiddles and accordions for an Irish Music Magazine, but she’s also been known to write about court cases, theater, and Native American Indian tribes. She’s amazed that she has a day job that pays her to spend time on Facebook and Twitter, and that, on a good day, gives her time to let the voices in her head out into the world to tell a story.

 If she had to put money on it, she’d bet that if music didn’t exist, she wouldn’t be able to write. 

She’s lived in two countries, six states, and is currently holed up in Nashville with her husband, daughter, two cats, and the world’s friendliest golden retriever.
