Lynette Eason wraps up her Elite Guardian series about a group of female bodyguards with "Chasing Secrets," which takes on the story of the mysterious Elite member Haley Callaghan.
Haley has a heart of gold and always jumps to help those in need, especially troubled teens. When she gets pulled into the lives of 16-year-old Zeke Hampton and his sickly brother Micah, her life is forever changed. Add to that an abrupt introduction to her past, much of which she doesn't remember, learning about her connection to the powerful and lucrative Burke family in Ireland, and Haley's life is suddenly thrown into a tailspin. And on top of everything else, she finds herself a target in a very dangerous game, one in which she doesn't even know who the players are.
Detective Steven Rothwell has returned home to South Carolina to be near his dad who is sick with cancer. When his series of cases begins to intersect with Haley's situations, he is quickly drawn into her world, becoming intrigued by and attracted to her.
"Chasing Secrets" is a novel full of twists and turns, leaving you to guess who is after Haley. But it is also much more than just a romantic thriller. Haley herself reminds us to always be a haven of hope to others, and helps us think about the true definition of family. This story shows us the importance of forgiveness and not letting hate take root in our lives and to find contentment, peace and acceptance instead; we can't change the past, but we can use the past to help others in the present; God, through his infinite grace and mercy, offers perfect justice; and the possibility of but difficulty in overcoming betrayal. A huge theme throughout "Chasing Secrets" is having a new heart -- both literally and figuratively.
Eason knows how to add just enough romance to her thrilling tales, and she did it again with "Chasing Secrets." She is an expert at writing amazing characters who draw you in. Although this story delves more deeply into Haley's story, readers will recognize many other characters from the prior novels, including Haley's fellow Elite team members.
My only "complaint"? It's the final novel of the series.
Five stars out of five.

Specksbooks5 Stars Out Of 5AmazingAugust 14, 2017SpecksbooksQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5After reading Moving Target I wasn't sure how Eason would be able to match not only the intensity but the thrill. Yet just pages into Chasing Secrets I was hooked! The plot of this novel was intense, thrilling, and gripping. Every chapter added to the suspense yet Eason always finds a way to weave in a love story to soften the novel. Steven was by far the best love interest I have read in a while, he is a compassionate and a true kind hearted person. Haley has a history that pulls at your heart strings and makes you want to learn more. I thoroughly enjoyed Chasing Secrets and have loved the Elite Guardians series. Lynette Eason has such an amazing writing style I can't wait to read what she writes next.

Lynette Eason, in Book 4 of The Elite Guardians series, captures the readers interest from page one, and just when you think youre going to get a breather from the romance, suspense, and crackling tension, she takes it to a whole other level.
Haley Callaghan has carved a career out of keeping people safe, and she is very good at her job. So its rather disconcerting to find herself on the receiving end of her services. But when danger crosses the water from County Mayo, Ireland, she quickly realizes that shes in over her head.
For Detective Steven Rothwell, returning home to handle some family business has reopened old wounds, and added a few new ones. While investigating several murders which seem to be linked, his path crosses Haleys. Curiosity leads to definite interest, especially when Steven discovers that Haley is at the center of his investigation. A cursory background check on the elite guardian reveals more questions than answers, and Steven does what any Detective worth his badge would do . . . he investigates.
Little does he know that they are both unwitting pawns in a game that is far larger, and with far more at stake, than either of them realize. And while Detective Rothwell is busy putting out fires on the street, he is helpless to do anything about the one burning in his heart.
5 stars for non-stop action!

Elite Guardians #4
By Lynette Eason
Haley Callaghan's early life in Ireland wasn't easy but she has no idea just what she lost years ago and the truth is about to come out. And someone is determined to keep her from learning the truth that has been hidden for over 25 years.
Living in South Carolina, Haley has no idea that her past is about to find her and place her and those around her in the crosshairs of danger. And her job with Elite Guardians places her in enough danger as it is and Haley has just taken on a case that has made her an enemy that has a way of escaping justice. With more than one target on her back, Haley has caught the attention of Detective Steven Rothwell is determined to help her stay safe.
Now Haley just has to survive long enough to discover who wants her dead and rescue those who've been put in danger because she cares. With Steven determined to not lose another person under his protection and the rest of the Elite Guardians backing her up, Haley has a fighting chance to see tomorrow. And Haley has a whole reason to see tomorrow - one she never expected to have.
This is the concluding book in the Elite Guardians series and fans of the series should not be disappointed though it would have been interesting to learn the back story on some of the later additions to the group. Haley's story is interesting and the various potential suspects and the overlapping of personal and professional just adds another layer to the suspense. I can honestly say I was left guessing up to the big reveal.
For readers who haven't previously read any or all of the books in this series don't worry you won't get lost as each book focuses on a different character or characters. Each story builds on the previous one much like one's own life - time passes and new acquaintances enter while others leave. The old and new in your life don't have to meet in order to enjoy (or not) spending time with you. So take the time to get to know Haley as she uncovers secrets from her past.
