Instead of reviewing each individual book, I decided to review the series as a whole. Please leave a comment and tell me if you like this better.
This series is fairly old and the first one that Lynette Eason put out. I think I can safely say that she has come a long way. While this series might have been a good competitor seven years ago, it just doesnt stand a chance now. Christian fiction has definitely come a long way since then.
This series follows three ladies as they fight crime in their own way. Samantha is an expert in computer forensics, Jamie is a forensic anthropologist and Kit is a hostage negotiator. They all have unique personalities and jobs which makes the stories new and exciting. Although, they are all about serial killers. Personally, I love a good serial killer book, but I know they arent for everyone.
In my opinion, my favorite was Dont Look Back, the second book. It had the most unique storyline and my favorite characters. My least favorite was A Killer Among Us, the third one. It was quite generic and boring. Also, in case you were wondering, you need to read the first one in order to read the second one. I dont think you will be able to understand it very well if you skip or go out of order.
Now to the good part- they are worth reading. As I said before, I like serial killer books, so I enjoyed these. Yes, the writing isnt spectacular and the characters werent the best, but theyre worth trying. Basically, if you dont have any other books you want to read or you are craving an eerie suspense book, then go for it. I would consider them a one-time read.
Don't Look Back is definitely my favorite book in this series! Eason gives readers a fast-paced plot that is equal parts suspense and romance. I was glad to learn the rest of Jamie's grueling story and loved how she pushed through such tragic circumstances. Highly recommend! [5 stars]
This book is a great sequel to the first story! The book seems to focus more on Jamie than Sam but it is just as enticing. There are only a couple of new main characters but still have Conner, Sam, Jamie, Dakota and others. There are a few BIG secrets revealed that will make you surprised and want to read the book even more. There are some parts that may make you feel happy, afraid, upset or even mad. This makes a great book to read also because it changes perspectives constantly to give you what the good and the bad people are feeling during the story. I read this book in 2 days and I can't wait to read the final book!
