A book that has combined the best of Mission Impossible and In Plain Sight. A newly married couple finds themselves threatened by a past that David Hackett, or was his name Kyle Abernathy, had not disclosed to his wife. Now under the somewhat crippled watch of the U.S. Marshall Services Witness Protection Service, they must survive the assults which come from both friends and foes.
The David Hackett is new believer, who in the midst of his family's troubles, must learn to trust a God that he is only slowly beginning to understand. His wife, whose faith is more deeply ingrained, must learn to trust a man who has lied to her - something that has not worked well in the past - And now? Who knows?
The book will appeal to the believer as we see believers struggle with life's challenges. But the faith element is not so overwhelming that it will drive away those who are looking for a good thriller to read. Though Ms. Eason is an accomplished writer, this is the first book that I have read from her. I will hope to read more in the future.

Lynette Eason has definitely become a "go to" kind of author for me. What does that mean? It means that anytime I want to read a great suspense book, I know that picking up her latest book will bring immense satisfaction. Her latest book, the first in a new series, makes that statement truer than ever.
Summer has just found out that her idea marriage is anything but idea. Her husband isn't the man that she thought he was. And not simply not "what", but "who". Finding out that your husband, and now you, are part of the Witness Protection Program throws her world into all kinds of chaos. Her husband has valuable information and the criminals will stop at nothing to get this information from him. As they are moved around from place to place to thwart any danger against them, Summer begins her own investigation of just who her husband really is. Will there marriage be beyond repair? Can she forgive him for all of the mistrust? Can they make it through this alive? PICK UP THIS BOOK AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF!!
This first chapter does a great job laying out the groundwork for what you are about to witness through the rest of the book. The suspense and adventure never stops as the characters are constantly on the run. It's interesting to see how the characters struggle through this tough time and the loss of trust and how the author is able to show how they can get their trust to grow again.
Is this a "Man's Book"? This has a great amount of suspense and intrigue with some great insight into couples that may struggle through tough times. I would heartily recommend this book to any man looking for a great suspense novel.
Summer Abernathy, the main character, is no fainting female. She is intelligent, brave and capable. Her husband has a secret that could get both of them killed by it doesn't stop her from doing everything she can to save him. Even when those secrets rip her heart out.
If you love suspense, you'll love this book. Every scene in every chapter puts you in a cliff-hanging, nail-biting place. And every scene will draw you deeper and deeper into the story. You've got know what's going to happen to them!
On her website, Eason says "It's my goal to write fiction that will keep you in suspense--infinitely!" She definitely met that goal with No One to Trust!
I won this book in a contest sponsored by the author, with no expectation of a review.
Lynette Eason's latest series, Hidden Identity, is off to a fantastic start! What a great story! It's different than the norm right off the bat because the not-so-typical 'love interests' are already married, but Summer finds out quickly that she really doesn't know her computer programmer husband at all. He's disappears, and when she sees him again and finds out who he really is, she has to forget much of what she thought she knew and decide if she still loves him and if she can ever trust him again.
This is a fast paced, action packed story that you don't want to miss.

Summer Abernathy is happily married to Kyle after a whirlwind romance. He'd never lie to her, or so she thinks until she wakes up with three strange men standing over her, asking for Kyle's laptop. But Kyle has disappeared _ Kyle is really David Hackett, part of the witness protection programme, and his past has just caught up to him.
Summer has just had her trust broken in the biggest way. She's married a man whose whole life is a lie, and she has no idea how to cope with that. But that worry soon becomes secondary to a more important objectiveâ€”staying alive when the people out to get them seem to know their every move.
Kyle/David has his own problems. He does love his wife: he didn't just marry her to throw his enemies off his trail (as they'd be looking for a single man, not a married man with a mortgage). But now he has to try to stay alive long enough to convince Summer.
No One to Trust is a fast-paced thriller, full of unpredictable plot twists and curve balls. The pace means it's probably lacking a little in character development, the Christian aspect is also secondary to the suspense, and the romance isn't really there (as they are already married). However, No One to Trust is still an excellent read for fans of romantic suspense, and I'll certainly be looking out for the next book in this new series.
Recommended for fans of Brandilyn Collins, Irene Hannon, Dee Henderson, Ronie Kendig, Diann Mills and Dani Pettrey.
