Protecting Tanner Hollow by Lynette Eason {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

Four nail-biting novellas in one!

Lethal Homecoming
Nolan Tanner never got over Kallie Ainsworth's sudden, unexplained departure. Now when he comes to her rescue after an attempt on her life, all the old feelings come rushing back.

Lethal Conspiracy
When professional fundraiser Lillian Maloney sees her father's campaign manager commit murder, she goes on the run from the men he hires to kill her. A close call brings firefighter Jason Tanner to the rescue, but the killer is closing in . . .

Lethal Secrets
Someone wants Honor McBride dead. When Eli Murphy helps her change a flat tire and discovers the danger Honor is in, he longs to help--but Eli has secrets of his own that could get them all killed.

Lethal Agenda
When Detective Derek St. John rescues a woman he's met only once before--and has never been able to forget--he finds himself falling for her. But he'll have to keep Claire Montgomery alive if they're to have a future together.

I have been a big fan of Lynette Eason's novels in the past, so when I saw that she had put out this collection of novellas, I was excited to get my hands on them. The first three stories may be familiar to longtime fans, as they had previously been released as ebooks only. This was my first time reading any so I was excited to dig into this collection of stories set primarily in the small town on Tanner Hollow.

Lynette Eason is fantastic at keeping the reader on the edge of their seat, and these novellas were no different. There were moments that I DID wish that these stories would have been full length novels just so that we could really expand on things a bit more in some areas, but I would still say she did a great job of packing in a ton of action, twist and turns and romance into each story despite their shorter length. Would I have preferred longer? Of course, but they were extremely satisfying regardless. Actually, the length was kind of perfect for this time of year when many of us are more busy and perhaps don't have as much time to read. These fast paced novellas give us that romantic suspense fix we love, but are quicker reads than a full length novel.

Each novella features different characters and a different story, but we do get glimpses at the previous characters as well--- which always thrills me as a reader. The final story features characters from Lynette Eason's Blue Justice series.

Overall, this is a must read for any Lynette Eason fan. They will lover her fantastic style in a smaller package. For those unfamiliar with her work, it's a great introduction and one that will have you begging to pick up a full length novel to get the full experience!
