New romantic suspense series: “Women of Justice”
FBI agent Samantha Cash sets out to solve a string of murders in a small Southern town. Troubles arise when the case turns personal…
Lynette Eason debuts a new romantic suspense series that features strong female characters who will stop at nothing to find the criminal: the Women of Justice series.
Too Close to Home is the first novel in this new series, which renowned suspense author Dee Henderson called “a hit” and said that she “enjoyed every minute.”
In this thrilling first book, readers meet Samantha Cash, who is the FBI's secret weapon. Her methods are invisible, and she never stops until the case is closed. When missing teens begin turning up dead in a small Southern town, Samantha is assigned to help the local police chief Connor Wolfe find the killer. And he has two problems with that. There's her faith--in God and herself. And then there's the fact that she looks exactly like his late wife.
As they get close to an answer, the case becomes personal. The killer seems to be taking an interest in Connor's 16-year-old daughter, who thinks her dad is getting way too protective. Can't a girl just have some fun?
Too Close to Home ratchets up the suspense with each page, and will have readers cheering for the characters they love as justice is served and love grows even in the face of danger. Read this one with the lights on!
Lynette Eason is the author of three romantic suspense novels, and a member of American Fiction Christian Writers and Romance Writers of America. A homeschooling mother of two, she has a master's degree in education from Converse College.

My review

I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down....That being said, I had a small frustration with this book. Connor is a cop through and through, and puts everything to the side including his daughter, so that he can work "the Case." In this book, "the case" happens to be about teenage girls so it struck me odd how clueless/neglectful Connor was towards his daugther. This just didn't make sense with me but other than that it kept me reading long into the night! I have to say I appreciated very much what a fantastic job Lynette did of dealing with the death of a loved who has a relationship with Christ is sooo much easier to cope with than those who do not. She exemplifies that very well in this book.

This is my first book from Lynette Eason and I will definately be reading the next book in the series!

Thankyou Baker Publishing
for this complimentary copy!
