Book Review: Don't Look Back by Lynette Eason

Lynette Eason has done it again! I first heard of this author earlier this year when I received an invitation to join in on the blog tour for Too Close to Home, the first book in the Women of Justice series. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone who likes Romantic Suspense. Mrs. Eason has a way with words, and when reading her books, I am drawn in to the characters' lives, cheering the "good guys" and wanting justice for the "bad guys". These books do not take long to read because I don't want to put one down after picking it up.

Don't Look Back (Women of Justice Series #2)
In Don't Look Back, Jamie Cash, the survivor of a kidnapping, faces her attacker once again when she and Dakota Richards, an FBI Special Agent, team up with others to investigate a series of murders. The killer calls himself The Hero, and he tortures his victims, putting them through all kinds of mental anguish while physically assaulting them. The more Jamie looks into the case, the more she sees that her past has once again become her present, and she must come face to face with the killer. When Dakota reaches out to help her, she turns him away. How can she ever trust any man again?And will she win this fight for her life?

The plot moves quickly and the suspense holds throughout the story. I actually figured out who the killer was about 1/3 of the way through, but I'm not sure if it is that noticable, or if I'm getting better at this sort of thing. So, it was a little anti-climactic for me. Nevertheless, I enjoyed Don't Look Back and I'm waiting now for #3 in the series, to be released in May of 2011.

I give Don't Look Back 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

Lynette Eason is the author of Too Close to Home and three other romantic suspense novels. She is a member of American Fiction Christian Writers and Romance Writers of America. A homeschooling mother of two, she has a master's degree in education from Converse College. She lives in South Carolina.

Sounds exciting. Sometimes I don't mind figuring out who it was early, as long as there's plenty of tension in what happens next.
