Countdown by Lynette Eason: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

A stalker who wants to finish what he started. A US Marshal who's vowed to protect his charge. And one woman who is determined to put the past in the past.

Flight paramedic Raina Price has been running so long it's hard to stop. To escape a dangerous stalker, she changed her name and disappeared, building a new life with the help of a friend from her time in juvie. It feels good to put her energies into saving people's lives, but because her stalker was never found, she's never stopped looking over her shoulder. And one can only run so far before the past finally catches up.

US Marshal Vincent Corelli's job is to hunt down fugitives and protect those who are assigned to him. When Raina is almost killed right in front of him, he vows to protect her at all costs--whether it's his job or not. Together they work to solve the mystery of Raina's past. But someone is out to make sure Raina doesn't live long enough to do it.

Countdown is the fourth and final book in the Extreme Measures series. Each book focuses on one of four friends, so while you'll see a few familiar characters mentioned, I do think this could be read just fine on its own without any confusion as well. Either way, it's a great series overall and certainly worth checking out anyway. 

Every time I pick up a book by Lynette Eason, I know one thing for certain: I am in for quite an adventure. Countdown absolutely was no exception. Right from the very beginning, I was drawn into this story... and that didn't let up at all throughout the story. We are given several different perspectives throughout the story, which has us feeling like we've got most of it figured out... but there were many twists and turns that kept things interesting. There were definitely a few moments I did not see coming. If you're looking for a fast-past suspense read that will keep you turning the pages, this will certainly do just that. It was combined wonderfully with some romance and great faith elements as well. And that epilogue? Oh, I just adored it! 

Overall, I thought this was a great read and one that fans of Christian suspense are sure to want to check out for themselves.
