Book Review: Don't Look Back by Lynette Eason

Excerpt: "What? You think someone's targeted me? That . . . that I've picked up a stalker or something?" The irony of it hit her. She threw up her hands. "Great. I don't leave the house for years and the minute I decide to try and have a life, some sicko wants to ruin it for me." She ignored the tinge of hysteria in her voice and the fact that her volume had notched up a few decibels.

Dakota laid a calming hand on her arm and she shrugged him off. Anger like nothing she'd ever felt before spun through her. Shocked, she stopped, then realized the anger felt good.

Really, really good.

Much better than the fear she'd lived with the past eleven-plus years. She poked a finger in Dakota's chest and said, "I'm not hiding anymore. I'm not going to be afraid anymore. I'm not giving up the life I've just managed to acquire. This time I'm fighting back, got it?" Don't Look Back, pg 28.

Back Cover: One man lives to see her dead - the other is fighting to keep her alive.

Twelve years ago, forensic anthropologist Jamie Cash survived a brutal kidnapping. After years of therapy, she has made a life for herself - though one that is haunted by memories of her terrifying past. She finally lets herself believe that she can have a close relationship with a man, when signs start appearing that point to one frightening fact - her attacker is back and ready to finish the job he started all those years ago.

Can she escape his grasp a second time? And will she ever be able to let down her guard enough to find true love?

Filled with heart-stopping suspense, gritty realism, and a touch of romance, Don't Look Back pulls you into its twists and turns to hold you there until the very last page.

My Review: Lynette Eason introduced us to Jamie Cash in Too Close to Home, the first book of the Women of Justice series. I've been waiting to find out how this story was going to turn out since reading Too Close to Home.This story is full of twists and turns. I was surprised several times, and every time in a good way. Lynette's writing is fun to read, and draws you in. The plot keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat, trying to solve the mystery before it's too late. This book is not for the faint of heart. Lynette isn't afraid to put her characters in very difficult and even deadly situations.

My Rating: 

My Recommendation: I recommend this book to those who enjoy edgy crime fiction with a hint of romance. I would suggest that you also read Too Close to Home, the first book in this series.
