Just Commonly5 Stars Out Of 5Fabulous and thrilling!August 19, 2017Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Chasing secrets can be exhausting, but Chasing Secrets by Lynette Eason, Book 4 of the Elite Guardians series is thrilling and exasperatingly good. So good, I wish there was more.
Ever since I read the first book, Always Watching, I've been intrigued with Haley Callaghan. She's tough, smart and loyal. Her compassion for the underprivileged and homeless drives her. In this book, we get to understand her on a broader level. Her past, her hurts, and her loves. She is tenacious, strong and o so funny with her Irish brogue. I really loved reading about her. The first reaction doesnt compare to getting to know her in her very own story! And detective Steven Rothwell backs her up.
I also enjoyed the girl comraderie we see with the rest of the group at Elite Guardians. I love seeing repeat characters back. The team spirit has such a strong presence with a great message for fellowship. Speaking of message, the message of forgiveness, not only of others but of self really hits home. Satisfying in its plot and closure for the group, but giving hope for the future.
In all, Chasing Secrets hits all the right notes with suspense, romance, characters and a strong message. I will miss the Elite Guardians but will look forward to the author's new series, Blue Justice, coming 2018.

Filled with lots of action, interesting characters, and compelling backstories, it is a novel that can be picked up and enjoyed even if you haven't read the other books in the series.
Haley and Steven were intriguing characters, especially Haley. I've been wondering about her past for some time now and it was very eye opening to find out more about her.
The author did a good job of keeping me in suspense about who the villain was. I had my ideas about it, and I was close, but she did surprise me. It was also great to revisit the other characters from the previous novels. This story is fast-paced and a the series is a definite must for fans of suspense.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
JaquelynAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A fun suspensful read!August 17, 2017JaquelynAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was not ready for this series to be over! Eason created an amazing team of women I wish I could be friends with. There was just the right amount of suspense with romance mixed in. I was intrigued to learn more about Haley and her secretive past. Chasing Secrets is the fourth book in the Elite Guardians series. I have read and loved the whole series, but also think you can read this book as a stand alone. The Elite Guardians are a group of women with many different skills and talents. They serve as body guards, and protect each other along the way. They are good at what they do, so good that sometimes they become targets themselves.
Haley has had the feeling she is being followed for a while now. Not knowing who is behind it is driving her crazy. But it seems that no matter what she does, her enemy is one step ahead of her. When Haley learns more about her past, the suspect list grows to include people as far away as Ireland. Can someone want her dead because of a family she doesn't even know? Or could it be that she made a new and deadly enemy all on her own? Steven has a job to do, and sometimes it involves protecting someone who doesn't want protection. Can Haley see beyond the circumstances and capture a love that just might last?
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense. I enjoyed getting to know Haley better and learning about what made her who she is. I felt the romance progressed nicely and didn't feel forced. The danger around every corner kept me on the edge of my seat, and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I loved seeing Haley's caring side and felt her love for the teenagers she helps. I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishers. I was in no way forced to post a positive review.

Mark5 Stars Out Of 5Eason has done it again....awesome read!August 17, 2017MarkQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Lynette Eason continues to put out top notch Christian suspense, and seems to get better with each book she writes. My only complaint about her books, is they all seem more geared to women readers, with most of her books having only women on the cover, and revolving around a female character..... but I still love her books.
This has been another awesome series by her, and it sadly ends with this 4th book in the series, Chasing Secrets. It is quite different than her other books, as she starts the book out in Ireland 25 years in a prologue chapter before the actual story starts, and the events in Ireland effect the main character and events of the rest of the book.
Chasing Secrets brings back some of the same characters from the rest of the books, along with several new ones, most of them likable......some not so much.
I am struggling through a book right now by a suspense author I used to love. There is no action, and it is difficult to get through. This book is far from that. It has non-stop action and drama, and a lot of surprises. The book is definitely unpredictable, other than the romance angle......which even this confirmed bachelor enjoyed.
I started this book on my lunch break at work yesterday and also read it on my second break, and it was very difficult to put it down and go back to work both times. Immediately after getting home and eating supper, I dove back into it and didn't put it down until I finished it..... then read a few favorite parts again. This is one of Eason's best books, and that is saying a lot considering how great her other books are.
As part of the story, Haley takes an interest in two boys with no father, and the events surrounding them add even more to the story, and I loved the conclusion of that part.
There was nothing to dislike about this book. Christian in content, great characters, awesome non-stop suspense, and yeah.....even the romance, which wasn't gushy or overdone. Eason has another book she can rightly be proud of, and again shows why she is one of my top favorite authors.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Wild Ride!August 16, 2017JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A chilling cold case, a long lost family, the start of a swoony romance, and bad guys behind every page - this story is one wild ride!
Haley's story is finally told, and I have to you, it's staggering! I really want to say more, but I don't want to give anything away, so you'll just have to read the book. *winks and grins* I have always loved the long lost family trope, and this story is no different. While Haley's story really thrilled me, Steven's spiritual story touched my heart. Through Steven's heartbreaking tragedy and some wonderfully veiled references, Lynette Eason shows readers how forgiveness can lead to a new heart.
I liked that Haley and Steven's romance was slow because otherwise it would have felt too fast for me. By the end of the overall story, they were just starting to date, and an epilogue gave me the Happily Ever After that I love so much.
Four Stars - An excellent conclusion to an exciting series! Chasing Secrets is the fourth and final book in Lynette Eason's Elite Guardians Series, and I think readers will be very pleased! Chasing Secrets is its own independent story, and very few references are made to the previous books, so readers will not be confused if they consume the stories out of order.
I received a copy of Chasing Secrets by Lynette Eason from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. All opinions expressed are my own.
