Suspense in Action: You Can’t Hit a Moving Target

Deb’s Dozen: Suspense, action, kidnapping. Serial killer on the loose. Maddy and Quinn Next?

Suspense is Lynette Eason’s calling. Her writing always has suspense and action and believable characters peopling the novels. The books in the Elite Guardians series are no exceptions. If you follow my blog, you’ll be up-to-date on this series and the first two books, Always Watching and Without Warning. Moving Target is just as exhilarating and exciting as the others.

Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe have a history. He’s FBI and she’s ex-FBI. They both have been near death–her from a slashed throat and him from being smashed in a car by a backhoe. She’s stuck by him through his rehab; he’s drawn to her and doesn’t know what to do about the situation. Maddy’s assignment is to get Quinn to his birthday party, but he ticks her off so badly she stalks out of the restaurant where they’re having dinner. After brief, but not brief enough, consideration, Quinn follows and drives to Maddy’s home.

At the party, the crew is worried. Neither Maddy nor Quinn have shown up and they’re not answering their phones or texts. They begin a search for the pair. In the meantime, Maddy and Quinn are in a fight for their lives as they’re hunted, literally, by the Chosen One.

You will not be able to put this book down. Do NOT start reading in the evening unless you want to stay up all night. Eason has included everything I want in a book: engaging characters, fascinating plot, twists and turns, a hint of romance. She gets her protagonists into situations you’re sure they can’t escape, but they pull out resources they didn’t know they had and manage to do so–only to be put right back in another perilous spot. Five stars!

Moving TargetLynette Eason has four series to her credit: Women of Justice, Deadly Reunions, Hidden Identity, and Elite Guardians. You will want to read all of them. She is the winner of two American Christian Fiction Writer Carol Awards, the Selah Award, a Golden Scroll Award and others. She lives in South Carolina where she plots more murder and mayhem

Revell, a division of Baker Books, gave me a copy of Moving Target, but I was in no way obligated to write a favorable review.
