Book Review: Nowhere to Turn by Lynette Eason

Book Description:

The day Danielle Harding takes her 11-year-old son, Simon, and flees from her abusive husband, is the same day Kurt Harding dies. A relieved Dani believes she and her son are finally safe--but in reality, the danger has just begun. When Kurt was alive, he took something important to a mysterious person. That person wants the item back and believes Dani now has it. As she and her son run for their lives, they have nowhere to turn, until she hires Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge and goes into hiding. Unfortunately, she won't be able to hide for long . . .

From the first breathless scene, this tension-laced story will hold readers in its iron grip. Bestselling author Lynette Eason propels readers along at a breakneck pace in a race to discover the truth and a better future.

Book Review:

This is a book two and the first I've read in this particular series. The good news is that it didn't make a huge difference, and could be read as stand-alone title. The bad news is that I thought it was part of a different series and I was completely confused until I realized the series I thought it belonged to is from a different author. So, as long as you don't make that mistake (trying to put books together that really don't go together) you will be fine :)

I appreciated the suspense of the novel. I got half the bad guys right :) It seemed a little over kill that there were so many bad guys, but it didn't keep me from enjoying the book. I also appreciated a good clean novel. There is violence, but not graphic. There is no swearing (that I can recall off the top of my head, and swearing usually really bugs me so I remember it), and the romance that took place was believable. It may not be Eason's best novel, but it was entertaining and I don't feel like I wasted my time reading it.
