    I usually don’t give books five stars. However, This book really hit home and I couldn’t put it down. I recieved it and by that night I had already finished it! The Book brought up so many emotions. Melissa Littles did a fantastic job with this book. Can’t wait for the next one!…

    This is an amazing book. Being a cops wife is not easy but it’s a wonderful wonderful thing. Melissa is able to show every aspect of this life with our LEOs. The good the bad and the downright terrifying. She keeps it real. Buy this book if you are a 20 year LEOW a brand new LEOW or if you know a LEOW….

    Melissa writes with eloquence the things that need to be said to and heard by everyone, LEOs, LEOWs, and everyone they serve and protect. This lady is a warrior for officer safety and a veritable fountain of inspiration to those who love our LEOs, whether married to one or in awe of one. Her integrity is unquestionable, her energy never-ending. I’m not sure how she has time to do everything she does, when all of us have the same amount of time in a day. She lives her purpose and that comes through in this book. She is a hero in her own right!…

    I will admit, I was biased before buying the book a few weeks ago. I am a fan of Melissa Littles and The Police Life Wife facebook page. I was one of the kids raised in a police family-father, uncles, and the extended family that was the officers and their families at the time. So, when I married an LEO I figured I was a pro and knew the routine. Been there, done that (missing birthday parties, Christmas on a different day, standing strong against critics) but life is different when you are the one left at home to carry the load. When your back-up, support, partner, friend, etc is an LEO there are no guarantees or promises always kept. Trying to be a supportive, loving wife can seem hard on those days you are left to explain to teachers, families and friends and most importantly your children why he is absent….again. This short book makes you laugh and cry, but reminds us we are not alone….

    This book was recommended by a police officer wife and I was NOT disappointed. After I started reading it I didn’t put it down till I completed it. The same day I started I finished reading it. This is now one of my favorite books. It made me realize how the police officers are taken for granted and how they and their families sacrifice so much. I now have a new perspective and respect for police officers and their families especially their spouses. My mother started to read it and so did my little brother for H.S. his H.S. teacher had to approve his choice of book but after he showed it to her she too was interested about the book. This book will hit you hard I highly recommended it to ALL. This book is one I will read over and over again I just wish it was available for kindle. Thank you to all our boys and women in blue….

    As a police wife, I was looking for a book that would make me feel not so alone in this hectic lifestyle. I think that was the intent of this book, but it seems to me it’s more of a “you’re lucky your LEO is still alive” kind of book. Very sad stories about police spouses losing their LEOs, and just a couple of not so sad endings. I guess this wasn’t the kind of book I thought it was. Also, a very repetitive narration of each story. The same framework each and every time….

    I have been married to an officer almost two years, and I was looking for a good support book for wives and families of LEOs. 95% of this book was about officers being murdered, and as someone else said in a review, it was more of a “You’re lucky your officer is still alive” book and that your time is coming! We as LEO wives go through a lot with our officers and our lifestyles, and I was hoping to feel better and be lifted up by this book, but it had quite the opposite effect. I don’t ever want my husband to go to work again after reading this book! I couldn’t read it right before bed, ESPECIALLY nights that my husband was working. It scared me. I know that wasn’t the author’s intention, but just a fair warning to anyone, especially new police wives, this isn’t the book to read if you want to feel better about your husband being in law enforcement….

    I think the intentions of this book were good- but I think more than anything it is a book that I wish the general public would read. I am an LEO wife- and I think as one we all have fears and concerns for our husbands as it is.. Rather than give comfort this book just intensifies those fears. I could barely read it while my husband was at work (which is a lot of the time that I am home!) because it made me so sad and worried. I agree with those who said it has a “you’re lucky your LEO is still alive” feel to it. I was hoping for comforting and inspirational stories and this is NOT what this book is about at all. I am obviously a huge supporter of our officers and the way this is written is definitely in support of our officers- I would love to have it broadcast to everyone.. Particularly those that constantly put them down. But I did not find what I personally was looking for from it. My heart breaks for the families in the stories but it was not what I was expecting and in no…
