This book is mostly a clean read, except for the fact that there is an pre-marital affair between the main characters.

Since I totally love reading books by Lynette Eason, I was delighted to be chosen to read and review this book. It was everything I had hoped for and more! Ms. Eason knows how to tell a good story, with believable characters and a twist at the end that leaves the culprit a secret until the very end. The book is action-packed from the very beginning. It is quick-paced, with suspense building throughout. Detective Jade Hollis is working to find her missing friend Frank, unfortunately presuming that he is dead. PI Bryce Kingsley has returned to town at Frank’s request so that he can try to find out if something underhanded is happening in the police department. Both of the protagonists have a past, with each other and a secret one. Jade has a daughter that is the result of a one-night stand with Bryce. I must say that I was a little perturbed by finding this included in a Christian romantic suspense, but I continued to read and was glad that I did. Bryce’s secret is that he lost his leg during the war and is dealing with PTSD. Jade’s parents are fostering twins from a neglectful home and also helping Jade to take care of Mia. This book is one of the most well-planned books that I have ever read, with the pacing and the suspense working together to keep me enthralled. I highly recommend this book to fans of romantic suspense!

My rating:

The reason for my rating is that this is a Christian romantic suspense, but it did include a child born out of wedlock. I know…very commonplace in this day and age, but that did lower my rating slightly.

Isn’t the book cover enticing? It says Christmas and mystery to me.
