Deb’s Dozen: A retired field surgeon, a stalker, a security agent, romance. What action!
I love Lynette Eason books and Active Defense (third book in the Danger Never Sleeps series) became one of my favorites. Lynette manages to write unforgettable characters, who get into unimaginable difficulties. How the characters get out of their scrapes always entertains. Lynette Eason takes us to places that excite, terrify. and surprise!
In Active Defense, Heather Fontaine, a former field surgeon in Afghanistan saw plenty of action. I always wanted to be a doctor, so any character who practices medicine automatically becomes a favorite. When Heather returns home, she finds safety there as elusive as on the battlefield. Someone searched her house, completely canceling her sense of security.
In the meantime, Heather correctly ascertains the surveillance. Not only by the stalker, but by Travis Walker, who watched her surreptitiously for weeks. He owns his own security agency, and asked him to help. When they team up, they have to figure out who wants Heather dead before the stalker gets his or her woman.
Of course, Heather and Travis end up together–one of the hallmarks of an Eason book. But how they get there creates the fun of the reading. In addition, trying to figure out the stalker before the end of the book challenges the reader.
To quote her Amazon Author’s page: “Award-winning, best-selling author, Lynette Eason writes for Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense line and for Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Her books have hit the Publisher’s Weekly, CBA and ECPA bestseller lists and have won numerous awards such as the prestigious Carol Award, the Selah, the Daphne, the IRCC award and more.” Married, Lynette treasures two children and lives in Greenville, SC.” As Lynette continues as one of my favorite authors, I read every book she writes.
NetGalley gave me a copy of Active Defense, but I was in no way obligated to post a review.
