Book Review: No Place to Hide

12 May

722107It’s not every day you see your childhood friend and one-time crush on national news. Jackie Sellers just wishes it were under different circumstances. She can’t believe that Ian Lockwood is wanted in connection with a terrorist plot, and she’s determined to find him and help him clear his name. But she’s not the only one looking. The FBI wants him captured. The bad guys want him dead. Ian just wants to stay alive long enough to save thousands of innocent lives.

 

 

 

 

red-jacket-smallLynette Eason grew up in Greenville, SC. Even as a young girl, she knew she wanted her life to reflect the love of Jesus Christ.

After graduating from the University of South Carolina with a Business Degree she used for a very short time (sorry Mom and Dad), she moved to Spartanburg, SC to attend Converse College where she obtained her Masters degree in Education. During this time, she met the man she would marry—the boy next door!

She is married to Jack Eason, who speaks, leads worship, and consults ministries around the country. They have two children.

 

My Impressions:

Fast-paced is an understatement in describing Lynette Eason’s latest offering in her Hidden Identity series, No Place to Hide. From the opening scene until the end, the reader is treated to near-misses, close calls and ramped up action. If you like your romance with a heavy dose of adrenaline, then this book is for you.

Jackie Sellers is an operative with Operation Refuge. After several years of trying to heal from personal trauma she is on the team protecting those who cannot do it themselves. When she sees her childhood best friend, Ian Lockwood, labeled as a terrorist, she knows she has to step in. Ian has overcome his childhood bullies but being set up as a terrorist and killer puts him on the run. Jackie and Ian lead the authorities and the bad guys on a cross country chase to discover the truth.

No Place to Hide is a combination of high-octane suspense and sweet romance. The plotting and the characters develop quickly. While I didn’t mind how quickly events unfolded, I would have preferred a little more background on the two major characters that would have helped explain their fears, strengths and weaknesses. The theme of trust is front and center. Faced with danger and betrayal, Ian and Jackie react differently — Ian has learned to always trust God no matter the circumstances, but Jackie fears more loss. I found their reactions to be natural and realistic.

No Place to Hide is the third book in Lynette Eason’s Hidden Identity series. Although characters from the series make appearances in the novel, this one can easily be read as a standalone. Perfect for inclusion in the beach or pool bag, No Place to Hide is a good bet for fans of romantic suspense.

Recommended.

Audience: adults.
