Chasing Secrets

GIVEAWAY
EASON, LYNETTE
CHASING SECRETS

Intensity. Skill. Tenacity.
The Bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.

When a photo leads investigators in West Ireland to open a twenty-five-year-old cold case, Elite Guardians bodyguard Haley Callaghan's life is suddenly in danger. Haley knows how to take care of herself; after all, she's made a career out of taking care of others. But after she has an uncomfortably close call, Detective Steven Rothwell takes it upon himself to stay with her -- and the young client she has taken under her wing. A protector at heart, he's not about to let Haley fight this battle alone.

In a sweeping plot that takes them into long-buried memories -- and the depths of the heart -- Haley and Steven will have to solve the mystery of Haley's past while dodging bullets, bombs, and bad guys who just won't quit.

My Review:

Romantic suspense with an Irish flair?  I am so in! (And kudos to the author for getting the Irish accent right. Scottish and Irish aren't interchangeable, just so you know.)

I'm sad that this is the last of the Elite Guardians series -- love these kick-butt heroines who don't wait to be rescued, though they are smart enough to accept backup when necessary. And Steven fits the bill perfectly -- in both the official and romantical departments.:-) I'm still giddy thinking about Steven and Haley.  Eason has a marvelous talent for developing believable romance in the midst of the chaos danger brings. It never feels hurried and there are some great soul bearing scenes as well as faith building ones.

The suspense is sublimely complicated. Enough to make an armchair sleuth's head spin. Just when I thought I was onto something...I wasn't. I love when a suspense plot keeps me on my toes right to the very end and this one sure did! And a wide range of secondary characters liven things up all the more making this a seriously rabid-page-turning read.

Though Chasing Secrets is the last book in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone. However, if you're an Elite Bodyguard fan you'll enjoy the amount of 'page time' previous heroines and heroes receive in this final story. And the epilogue is sweet perfection!

  5. I usually don't read serious suspense, but perhaps I should try expanding my horizons, so to speak. I have seen her books at Christianbook and otherwise and note she is an award winning author. A page-turning read sounds a good recommendation! Thanks!

    1. Very sad. I guess they can only hand out so many for reviews. I think they are still going strong as far as publishing goes though. Good luck, Amada.

      Delete
    2. True, but I think when a reviewer has been reviewing the whole series they should get the final book to review since their readers are expecting the review. :/ Could I get the word review in there any more times! LOL! Sadly they are starting to slip on the publishing as well. :( It's little slips right now, and I hope they can get back on track before things get worse. I LOVE so many of the authors! I'll get off my soap box now! ;) BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
