Book Review

Publisher's Note:

What Detective Brady St. John really needs is a relaxing vacation. Unfortunately, just as the sun is setting on his second day at a friend's cabin on Lake Henley, he hears a scream and races to rescue a woman from her would-be killer. When the killer escapes only to return to finish the job, Brady vows to utilize all of his many resources to keep her safe--and catch those who would see her dead. Financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain doesn't trust many people. And even though she let the detective who saved her life in on a few pertinent facts about why she was being attacked, there are some things you just don't share with a stranger. Little does she suspect that the secret she is keeping just might get them both killed. Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason sends readers on a race for the truth in this heart-stopping story of risk, regret, and redemption.…

Code of Valor

by Lynette Eason

Overall Book Review:

Code of Valor by Lynette Eason is the third book in the Blue Justice series.  No time is wasted getting started with this action-packed story.  Dangerous situations and uncertainties abound.  Even better, a romance is brewing that manages to outshine the mystery and threats of bodily harm.  This is done in such a way that the harsh realities of the story are somehow softened.  Another example of how love conquers all.

The plot is a bit laughable when Brady St. John, who is trying to escape his hectic life as a detective, finds himself thrown into the middle of the very thing he is trying to avoid.  Those who have read and enjoyed Eason’s work in the past will not be disappointed.  Opportunities to try and figure out who is behind the attempts on Emily Chastain’s life are many.

Explore the many emotional and relationship issues driving a wedge between Brady St. John and Emily Chastain.  Dive into the pasts of these two to try and figure out who is behind the murders and be relieved to know it is resolved by the end of the story.  Hold on tight as you are in for a fast, action-packed read that also delivers romance.  Nothing stays calm or stable for long.
