Book Review: Moving Target

27 Feb

417rbxznislWhen Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe don’t show up for Quinn’s surprise birthday party, his friends know that something is very wrong. Their search turns up little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy just decided to take off for a long overdue vacation. But it soon becomes apparent that they did not leave of their own accord.

Maddy awakens in a cement room with no idea where she is. But it’s not long before she realizes she’s in the clutches of a madman exacting revenge by hunting. His prey of choice? Humans. Now Maddy and Quinn must run for their lives, hoping to find their killer before the next game begins. Because if they don’t win this game, they die.

 

71ml9pouful-_ux250_Award-winning, best-selling author, Lynette Eason has written/contracted thirty-six books since 2007. She writes for Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense line and for Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Her books have hit the CBA and ECPA bestseller lists. Lynette has been teaching for more than ten years and is very happy to make the transition from teaching school to teaching writing whenever the opportunity presents. She is married, has two children, and lives in Greenville, SC.

 

My Impressions:

Whew! Readers hold their breath along with the characters in Lynette Eason’s latest book, Moving Target. This adrenaline-laced romantic suspense has it all — fast-paced action, a twisty-turning plot and characters that will make a place in your heart. I could not put this one down!

Maddy and Quinn are plunged into a fight for their lives when they are kidnapped and forced into a deadly cat and mouse game. But this game has serious consequences — one false step and its over and so are Maddy and Quinn’s lives. But these two are up for the challenge as they try to get inside the killer’s head and discover his identity.

The action never lets up in Moving Target. From the beginning Maddy and Quinn (and readers) are kept off-kilter. While readers are given a bit more information than the two main characters, this novel keeps you guessing and puzzling over who is really behind all the mayhem. Main characters, Maddy and Quinn, are real and relatable. They both have relationship issues: with family and with God. Quinn, especially, has serious trust issues that impact his faith. It’s hard to forgive when others don’t believe you are innocent. I liked that both characters worked on their baggage before committing to each other. But the chemistry! Fans of the romance side of romantic suspense will love this book. Moving Target is book 3 in the Elite Guardians series. And while it can be read as a standalone, characters from previous books made appearances. This is not a problem, unless you are like me and keep trying to figure out all the relationships. After a while, I just focused on the story at hand and soon was turning pages as fast as I could.

Moving Target is another winner from Lynette Eason. If you love romantic suspense, definitely check this one out.

Recommended.
