This is a good book. Yeah, like as in fast paced, edge of your seat, can't put down good from start to finish! I've been a fan of Lynette Eason for a while now, and this is one of her best stories so far, which is saying a lot. If you liked her Women of Justice series you don't want to miss this one. Dani and her son are as likeable as her abusive husband and his brother are not. That's ok, it makes them great villians. Domestic violence is not an easy subject to address but Ms. Eason does so tastefully, and takes it seriously. Dani and her son are not totally fine a few days after Kurt's death. It takes time to work through the serious issues that come from that sort of situation.
Characters from No One To Trust, the first book in the Hidden Identity series, play fairly key roles in this second book, which is neat but it doesn't in any way mean that if you started with this book that you would be lost or missing important information. My favourite kind of series is one where the story is wrapped up by the end with no major cliffhanger or no important back story that you wished you read first and this fits the bill. Danger, secrets, excitement, fear, and some romance, it doesn't get much better than this.

I'm giving the book 4 stars because at the end the author left a couple of loose ends. If you haven't read the book don't read on. First, she never revealed who was videoing Trennan Eisenberg's murder, Second, where were the counterfeit plates? Those two things were never revealed. It definitely needed better editing. But, overall it was a good book.
As usual, Lynette's books start with a moment that draws you in and keeps you moving. Nowhere to Turn was no different. A wonderful suspense with characters you'll connect with and root for, it was a book that thoroughly entertained with thrills that kept me up at night for all the right reasons. I love that Lynette keeps her romantic suspense clean and yet doesn't skimp on heart-racing moments, both with her romance and suspense themes. I did struggle a bit with the feel that I figured out too soon who the "bad guy" was, but I wasn't sure if that was the plot or the fact that I've read Lynette's books before. I'm not ready to call it predictable, as that sounds boring and this book definitely was NOT boring, but it did lose one star for me for that reason. Still, I happily give it 4 out of 5 stars.
I have all of Lynette Eason's books and she writes so well that you feel like you are right there along with all the characters. It keeps you hooked from the first page until you need to finish the story.
This book is about safety-and when you and and/or the World think you are safe and you are not.
The Mom of a pre-teen escapes following her gut. Repeatedly, not relying solely on appearances, track records, and reassurances, this gutsy Mom saves herself and her only child repeatedly from failing systems and promises.
This Mom wins time and again, because she learns to trust her instincts more and more throughout this book, as opportunity, luck and her gut instincts prove to be the Lone Ranger saving her and her Son, every time. Of course, there are a few good people, and one handsome one!-At least to our Lead Character.
I liked this book because its about the life of many Women, and about our cultural indifference, ignorance, and failure to protect. The moral: Safe choices are not always as safe as you think. [Trust your gut and God. There is communication between the two. One is a gift from the other to you.].
