Deb’s Dozen: Someone murders entire families—how are they related? Now someone’s after her.
Hostile Intentby Lynette Easton concludes her Danger Never Sleeps series. Finishing the book was sad. I’m not ready to leave these characters. Lynette’s many talents include creating characters who become real to you as you’re reading. I dislike having to say goodbye to friends even when they’ve been involved in tracking murders.
Ava Jackson received an early discharge from the Navy to come home to be with her ailing mother. While deployed, she’d lost her father. She couldn’t bear the thought of not being with her mother in her mom’s last days. After visiting her mom, a man attacks her as she makes her way to her car. She fights back savagely and runs the attacker off when FBI Special Agent Caden Denning arrives to help in the nick of time.
And so starts this exciting, terrifying, unpredictable effort to find the attacker. Ava seems to be the key to the murders of three families. The FBI fears the murders will continue unless they find the commonality among the killings. Ava hides secrets; Caden hides his attraction to Ava. hey both relentlessly try to solve the puzzle and catch the killer—before the killer succeeds in his quest to get Ava.
Hostile Intent engrossed me to the point Ava and Caden’s world became my reality, and true reality hid somewhere outside their realm. Finding a book that plunges you into the middle of the characters’ lives and takes you with them on their journey is rare. Lynette Eason is one of today’s mystery/suspense/thriller writers capable of doing so. Hostile Intent rates five stars.
Many awards grace Lynette Eason’s shelves—three ACFW Carol Awards, the Selah Award, the Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award, and the Golden Scroll Award among many others. She graduated from the University of South Carolina and obtained a master’s degree in education from Converse College. Lynette lives in South Carolina with her husband, Jack, and two children.
