Book Review: When the Smoke Clears by Lynette Eason

Excerpt: He suspected what was in the envelope. Shaky fingers opened it and pulled out the single white sheet with the block-style printed words.


Senator Frank Hoffman leaned back in his plush leather chair and drew in a deep breath.

It was Jillian; he knew it. She'd decided to come out of hiding. He'd searched high and low for the girl ten years ago, when she simply dropped off the face of the earth.

But the letter proved she wasn't dead. She was back, taunting him with the skeleton in his closet.

Jillian Carter. The one person who could kill his career, ruin his shaky marriage, and sabotage his future.

He'd rather put a bullet in her brain than let that happen. When the Smoke Clears, pg 17.

Back Cover: After a brush with death due to equipment failure, smokejumper Alexia Allen is ordered to take time off while the incident is under investigation. She makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother's home and attend her high school reunion. Yet trouble seems to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she is confronted with murder, arson--and a handsome detective.

But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she struggles to accept and forgive her family's past, she must also decide if the secret she's been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light.

Chock-full of the suspense and romantic tension you've come to expect from Lynette Eason, When the Smoke Clears is the explosive first book in the Deadly Reunions series.
My Review: Lynette Eason's newest book is a must read for those who enjoy romantic suspense. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat. Alexia goes from one dangerous situation to another without much of a break in between. Of course, there is the tall, handsome cop, but even he can't keep her from the killer's clutches. Once I got to the end, I really want to read the next book in this series. There is still so much that hasn't been answered, still so many people in danger. Well done Lynette. Thank you for this great read!

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense.
