    Lynette Eason in her new book, "When a Heart Stops" Book Two in her Deadly Reunions series published by Revell takes us into the life of Serena Hopkins.

    From the Back Cover: A killer's deadly game needs new players . . . but someone's about to change the rules

    As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder-especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush.

    As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again. And when Serena's own life seems at stake, she must decide if the secret she has been keeping has put her next on the killer's hit list. Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?

    I could be wrong, probably am, but I don't know many stories where Medical Examiners get the spotlight. Only Quincy, M.E. and the super great Body of Proof come to mind. Lynette Eason seems determined to rectify this oversight with her character, Serena Hopkins who is a medical examiner. Before "When a Heart Stops" I had no idea of the potential dangers and threats a medical examiner could face. Wow, if this was really true no one would want to be a medical examiner. "When a Heart Stops" is a thriller, no doubt about it. Serena and Dominic's lives are in great danger from page one and the danger grows with the body count. Just when you think you might know where the story is heading Ms. Eason tosses in another turn which you take at high-speed on two wheels. Ms. Eason makes her characters so real and you root for them to complete their mission and you root for their romance to blossom. Ms. Eason knows how to tell a story that keeps you flipping the pages and guessing as to who the bad guys really are. This is a wild ride read and I recommend it highly. This is a high octane series I am looking forward to the conclusion with book three.

    Lynette Eason returns with her second Deadly Reunions novel focusing on Serena Hopkins, the medical examiner introduced to readers in When the Smoke Clears. The mystery flows from the first book so this is definitely a series worth reading in order and much in this book may be confusing if read as a stand alone novel. Lynette includes plenty of murder and mayhem, danger, suspense and gentle attraction which will please fans but it wasn't a favourite read for me. The chemistry and growing relationship between Serena and Dominic was a little underdeveloped for me and there wasn't enough revelatory scenes surrounding the underlying mystery - I was hoping for some more insight into why Serena's class is being targeted in the lead up to the final story. I am still looking forward to the conclusion of this series as Lynette's writing is always solid and enjoyable - I was just anticipating more from When A Heart Stops and this series.

    Who wins and who loses?

    Don't even think you're going to put this book down before you finish it. You would just be lying to yourself, because you can't turn the pages fast enough.

    You also won't be able to figure out who the bad guys are until nearly the end of the book.

    I can't believe the way this book ends. All I can say is Ms Eason better get the next book out pronto. How am I goin to be able to sleep now?

    Lynette Eason writes the kind of suspense I love to read! When a Heart Stops is fast-paced, intense, and even has a bit of the creepy factor (or a lot of the creepy factor). Plus, it's sweet and romantic ... pretty much all the things I love in a great book. It should be no surprise then that I literally could not put this book down. I started it early one morning and finished it about eight hours later—stopping only briefly to eat lunch, wash a few dishes, and say hello to my husband.

    When a Heart Stops is clearly the second book in a series as one story line is a continuation from the previous book (and there are definitely some loose ends at the end of this one). However, the author does a great job of bringing readers along in the story so you don't feel lost or confused. I was also pleasantly surprised that I never figured out "whodunit." I was suspicious of nearly everyone in the book at one point or another but never figured it out. :) I'm definitely going back to read Eason's other books and can't wait for the conclusion of this series! [4.5 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    Nerve-wracking and anxiety provoking are two terms that best describe this suspense novel. I can easily see this book as a horror movie in the theaters because of the serial killer theme. The plot was downright creepy and had me guessing through most of the novel, though I'm proud to say I had an inkling that ended up being dead on (pardon the pun.) I thought it was cool how the characters often prayed when needed and I ended up feeling really bad for those poor victims. Also, the faith thread seemed real to me and not inserted just to make the book Christian.

    The thrill of the chase was exciting, and it compelled me to keep reading. And like any good suspense writer would, this author put a mean twist on things toward the end. As in the first book in this series, the ending resolved the dilemma... somewhat, and there was a bit of closure. (At least enough that I don't feel distressed that the next book isn't out yet.)But the resolution and teaser scene at the end already has me wanting to read the next book.

    The craziest thing is this... I rarely enjoy reading suspense novels and it takes a lot for me to get into them. Dekker is one of the few "scary" authors that I like to read. Lynette Eason has earned a secure spot on that small must-read suspense list of mine with this series. I am really looking forward to the next book. And though there were a few elements that didn't seem quite believable, like Serena's age being pretty young for a Medical Examiner, that didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the story.
