Double Take by Lynette Eason: Book Review

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

Detective James Cross has been honorably discharged from the Army Criminal Investigation Division due to wounds sustained when an IED blew up near him. Now with the Lake City Police Department, he's rooming with this good buddy and partner, Cole, while he figures out his family dynamics.

Physician Assistant Lainie Jackson is eighteen months out from an attempted murder perpetrated by her ex, which ended when she managed to grab the weapon and shoot him. When he appears to have survived and is back to finish the job he started, Lainie insists it's not possible. But someone keeps trying to kill her, and she keeps seeing his face.

Together, Lainie and James must work together to find out who, exactly, is after her and why he wants her dead. And failure is not an option.

USA Today bestselling author Lynette Eason will leave you breathless with this fast-paced first book in a brand-new series.

Award-winning, best-selling author, Lynette Eason writes for Harlequin's Love Inspired Suspense line and for Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Her books have hit the Publisher's Weekly, CBA and ECPA bestseller lists and have won numerous awards such as the prestigious Carol Award, the Selah, the Daphne, the IRCC award and more. Lynette is married, has two children, and lives in Greenville, SC.

Lynette Eason is an absolute master at creating romantic suspense stories that will keep me on the edge of my seat and Double Take was no exception. Right from the very start, I found myself drawn into the story and it kept its fast pace and excitement right through to the end. After a car accident, Lainie sees her ex-fiancĂ©... the only problem? He's supposed to be dead. But is he really? There were so many twists and turns and signs pointing in all directions that just when I'd think I'd figured it all out, I'd find myself doubting again... in the very best way possible. There were definitely some twists that I did figure out fairly early on... but still plenty more that kept things interesting. I absolutely love that in a suspense read! 

Both main characters were dealing with PTSD which not only added a great element to their story... but I think is also something that we need to see more of too, so I really appreciated that. The romance was balanced beautifully with the suspense, and I found I really enjoyed these two together. There were also some really good messages of faith and setting boundaries as well. 

If you enjoy Christian romantic suspense, you'll absolutely want to check this one out!
