Chasing secrets is the fourth book in the elite guardian series. Without a doubt this was my favorite in the series. While the storyline had much of the same formula as the author's previous books in this series, I found that there were several items that were included in this book that made it really stand out for me.
Elite Guardian Haley Callaghan and police detective Steven Rothwell were a magnificent couple and they made a great team. From the outset it is known that they are attracted to one another, yet they remain professional and for the majority of the book, left the personal side of it until near the end of the story. I know that there is limited space within a book for relationships to develop, so I was impressed that their relationship progressed at a very natural pace, it wasn't rushed as so many author tend to do.
I loved Haley's backstory. So unique and the fact that there is a castle involved!
The storytelling and the mystery were top notch and the author did a great job of keeping the villain a secret until the very end. There were lot's of red herrings and false leads that the reader must work through. And although this is part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone book.
God also seems to be more prominent in this book that any of the others, which I loved.
It was a very impressive book and one I would definitely recommend.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Romantic Suspense with an Irish FlairFebruary 6, 2018KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Romantic suspense with an Irish flair? I am so in! (And kudos to the author for getting the Irish accent right. Scottish and Irish aren't interchangeable, just so you know.)
I'm sad that this is the last of the Elite Guardians series -- love these kick-butt heroines who don't wait to be rescued, though they are smart enough to accept backup when necessary. And Steven fits the bill perfectly -- in both the official and romantical departments.:-) I'm still giddy thinking about Steven and Haley. Eason has a marvelous talent for developing believable romance in the midst of the chaos danger brings. It never feels hurried and there are some great soul bearing scenes as well as faith building ones.
The suspense is sublimely complicated. Enough to make an armchair sleuth's head spin. Just when I thought I was onto something...I wasn't. I love when a suspense plot keeps me on my toes right to the very end and this one sure did! And a wide range of secondary characters liven things up all the more making this a seriously rabid-page-turning read.
Though Chasing Secrets is the last book in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone. However, if you're an Elite Bodyguard fan you'll enjoy the amount of 'page time' previous heroines and heroes receive in this final story. And the epilogue is sweet perfection!
crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I highly recommend this series!!September 29, 2017crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This series just keeps getting better and better! I wasn't completely sold on the first book, but I enjoyed #2 and #3 and I love this one! This is another creative storyline that takes you out of the usual but is still believable. Right off the bat it grabbed my full attention when it started out in modern day ... in a castle! What?? Awesome.
I love the characters of Haley and Steven, and I appreciate that the romance aspect does not overpower the rest of the story. Not to say it isn't there, but there's much more to this book than simply that. The suspense is high, the plot thick, it's wonderfully written and you won't want to put it down. I highly recommend this entire series as it's best to start at the beginning and in my opinion each book so far is better than the one before it so you will have that to look forward to, or perhaps you will have a different favourite set of characters because that's really what I think it comes down to.

Not much action. Mostly went on and on and on about how they solve old missing persons cases; all about evidence collecting, etc.
Nicole Sneed5 Stars Out Of 5Simply Wonderful!September 8, 2017Nicole SneedQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This is my favorite book of the four book series. Not only is it full of suspense and romantic overtones, the reuniting of family members, and the compassion shown with the adoption of two orphaned brothers. God truly puts the lonely in families. Well done Eason!!
