"She doesn't know who she's running from--and the man she loves may be someone else entirely. Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover? The search for her husband--and answers--takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn't know who to believe. " (Publisher's Description)
Yet another wonderful, suspenseful read by Ms. Eason! This book was really hard to put down. One more page turned into one more chapter, then one more chapter. The roller-coaster that Summer is put in is fraught with danger and intrigue. Not knowing who to trust, Summer has to put her trust in God and learn to forgive the man who she thought she married in order to survive. This is book one in the Hidden Identities series and I cannot wait for the second.

The book hooked me right from the beginning. When Summer found out Kyle had lied and betrayed her that became the focus of the story. The author kept dwelling on that. We know. Move on. At the beginning of the book in the prologue David's name was Hackett at the end of the book David's name was Hatchett. So what was his last name? Authors shouldn't be in such a hurry to get their books printed and get them proofed and edited better. The killing and bloodshed got to be to much. But, still it was a good book.
The last year of Summer Abernathy's life is a lie. She wakes up one morning with a gun in her face and men in her bedroom who tell her husband is actually David Hackett not Kyle Abernathy and they want the laptop and flash drive he stole.
David Hackett has been in the witness protection program for over a year. Three weeks before he's scheduled to witness at a murder trial, the people who want to get the laptop he stole find him.
David and Summer have to rely on the US Marshalls to keep them safe until the trial and until David can hand over the laptop and flash drive to the authorities to put a mob boss behind bars. Summer also has to decide if she can trust and love her husband whom she didn't know at all.
David and Summer's story hooked me right away. I was wanting to know who was after David (Kyle at the time) when he was on a call. I also wanted to know how Summer would deal with finding out her husband wasn't Kyle but rather David. I was constantly wondering how David and Summer were going to get away. Also, I was never really sure who was on the flash drive. Sometimes I would forget that was even part of the story because I was so entrenched in David and Summer's story and wanting them to survive.
Those who like more of the romance side of the romantic suspense genre may be disappointed with this book. It is not as strong as it is in other books of this genre. It's hard to be romantic when you found out your husband is not who you thought he was and your running away from a mob boss and his goons.
This book was focused more on the suspense and fighting to stay alive as opposed to the romance but it was still there because David and Summer had to work through the lie of David's identity. I think those who like romantic suspense will like this book but those who are not particularly fond of romance, at least where two characters fall in love in a short amount of time, may like this book as well as the romance is between a married couple and it's not super strong in the book.
I enjoy Lynette Eason's books. Her suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat, fast paced, twists and turns everywhere (like her Deadly Reunions series).
So when her new book, No One To Trust, came out, I was excited to read it. The story line sounded good. I started reading it, and the story hooked me from the start. The mystery of it, the intrigue, again, the fast paced thriller. I really enjoyed catching a glimpse into the Witness Protection world. The characters were likeable, especially David and his three marshals.
Only two problems: First, there were several areas in the book that really were redundant. For instance, once Summer found out who Kyle was, it went on and on about how betrayed she felt, how hurt and angry. While that fit for awhile, it was continued throughout the story, long after the point had been made. There were some other areas that were constantly repeated as well.
The only other thing was there was a lot of bloodshed. I know with a murder mystery, someone is going to be killed, but there were SO many, it was starting to seem like too much. Towards the end, people were being killed left and right, and the value for these lives seemed like nothing. Both the good guys and bad guys didn't seem too concerned with the number of killings.
All in all, a pretty good book, but not one of Lynette's best for the above reasons. If you're looking for a fast paced thriller, this is it, though I'm not sure I would recommend it to a friend.
We only know others by the person they present to us. As much as you think you know someone, you can never really know how they have lived when you are not watching, as Summer discovers one morning. This is a clean romantic suspense that is thoroughly enjoyable. The reader can relate to the characters and identify with their struggles and choices. While this is a pleasant read and I definitely appreciated the Christian aspect, the suspense did not grip me, and it seemed slightly predictable. Readers who enjoy less tense suspense will enjoy No One to Trust.
