My Impressions:

Nowhere to Turn, book 2 in the Hidden Identity series, is the first book I have read by Lynette Eason. But following this reading experience, it definitely will not be the last. When Eason says welcome to the edge of your seat, she is not kidding. From the first page to the climax, I was holding my breath, hoping all would be well for the characters that took hold of my heart. This is the perfect book for fans of romantic suspense. Run, don’t walk, to get your copy!

Dani Harding is a character to love. The victim of spouse abuse and stalking, she is determined to keep herself and her son, Simon alive. The threats seem to come out of nowhere, and she and her protectors are kept on their toes to ensure survival. And just who are Dani and the reader to trust? It’s hard to tell the bad guys from the good. I loved Dani, Simon and Adam, the man entrusted with their safety. But it is the fast-paced suspense that really sold me. There is a definite creep factor involved in the story line and the threats come so fast that it keeps the characters and the reader off balance. This book was hard to put down; the twists and turns kept the pages turning. For fans of romance, Nowhere to Turn delivers as well. But the pacing is credible. Dani and Adam recognize the dangers of taking things too fast. I appreciated the restraint in their developing relationship.

Nowhere to Turn is easily read as a standalone novel, but I will have to go back and read book 1, No One to Trust. And book 3, No Place to Hide, is due out Summer 2015. Can I wait, I guess I’ll have to!

Highly Recommended.
