Ava Jackson entered the military shortly after high school, but her mother’s illness has forced her to request an early discharge.

But after a visit to the nursing facility where her mother lives, Ava is attacked walking back to her car. Fortunately, FBI Special Agent Caden Denning arrives in time to help fight off her attacker.

Caden reveals to Ava that she may hold the key to the murders of three families, and he needs her help before anyone else is harmed. The hits show a pattern, and clearly the killer has an agenda. But if Caden and Ava can’t discover what it is, Ava may be next on the hit list.

My Review

Hostile Intent
By Lynette Eason
Book 4 in the Danger Never Sleeps series
Rating: 4/5

Lynette Eason does it again! She has this uncanny ability to keep the reader’s attention and weave this intricate plot regarding secret pasts and the people involved. This book can be read as a stand-alone but would be more enjoyable if read in order. 

Ava has a secret that she’s never shared with anyone, but when she discovers she’s on the radar of someone who is killing whole families in different states, FBI agent Caden is not willing to risk her safety. With the help of some friends (introduced in earlier books), Ava and Caden must race against time to uncover the truth and save each other. Can Ava handle working with her childhood crush? Can Caden ignore his budding feelings for the mysterious Ava? Will she ever be able to trust him?

As someone who has enjoyed the previous books in the series, I was not at all surprised that I continued to enjoy this book. It jumps right into the villain’s head and then switches perspective throughout the story. Faith is mentioned briefly in parts but is not preachy. The action and attention-to-detail is top notch and you can tell the author did her research. 

Highly recommend if you enjoy Christian romantic suspense with lots of mystery and action. 

My thanks to the author and publisher for providing me with an ARC of the book. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. No positive review was expected and no compensation received. 

Book Review: Active Defense by Lynette Eason

Active Defense
by Lynette Eason
Book 3 in the Danger Never Sleeps series
Rating: 4.5/5

Who doesn’t enjoy a good romantic suspense novel? As a long-time fan, I was excited to get back into the world with some familiar characters and get to know them better. This story can definitely be read as a standalone novel (I somehow skipped reading book 2, but I did read book 1), but I recommend starting from the beginning to get the full effect. I, myself, need to go back and read book 2. You will not regret it.

Heather Fontaine is dealing with PTSD after her service in Afghanistan as a field surgeon. She thinks someone is stalking her, and she is on edge all the time. After she finally shares her fears with her friends, she arrives home to find her house is not quite the way she left it. Fleeing and trying to disappear to protect her friends from an unknown adversary prove to be difficult when Travis Walker, owner of his own security firm, is able to find her and save her. Who is watching her? Who just tried to kill her? She has so many questions and not enough answers. Can Travis and her friends help Heather uncover what is going on? Will Heather’s emotional baggage and traumatic past keep her from pursuing a relationship with the seemingly perfect Travis? Can Travis really protect Heather and keep her safe?

As a medical student, I always love reading stories (even fictional ones) about doctors in the field. Heather’s past is what has shaped her character and is part of what drives her passion to help others. I loved the part where Heather explained how she turned out the way she did despite poor role models — she just did the opposite of what she saw her father do. I definitely cried some tears and felt my adrenaline pumping at different points in the story. Heather’s relationship with Travis was a bit rushed, but it may have been developed more in book 2. Their relationship was not as obvious in the beginning of the story. The big reveal at the end was something I did not see coming until the author made it clear, which is always impressive since I’m constantly guessing throughout the story. Faith is gently woven into the story – definitely not in a preachy way.

Highly recommend this Christian romantic suspense novel that will keep you reading till the end with action, intrigue and a lot of heart.
