Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMNovember 14, 2019FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I've got mixed opinions about this book. Let me start with what I like. At the top of the list is the author. Lynette Eason is someone that you can count on for a riveting story. If the book has her name on it . . . I want it!
I also liked that it was four different stories in one book. It's a crazy busy time of year and it's nice to be able to sit down and read a story in one sitting. In my opinion November and December were made for novellas.
Each of the stories are stand-alone but they are also somewhat connected. The stories are complete but there are connecting threads such as the location (Tanner Hollow) and overlapping characters. I still think you need to read the stories in order but it's okay to finish a story and then not get back to the next one for several days.
Finally let me tell you what I didn't really care for. I know I just said that I like novellas this time of year but for me this group of novellas really short changed the stories. In my opinion each of these novellas begged to be a full blown story. Don't get me wrong, I liked them, but I just felt like too much was condensed into a shorter story. Again, in my opinion, novellas really tend to be lighter stories. As with most of Lynette's books there was a lot of intense action.
So my final analysis would be to get it if you are a fan of Lynette Eason and/or romantic suspense. Read it and enjoy it and let it be a reminder of how much you enjoy sinking your teeth into her full-blown novels.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Fast-paced and action-packedNovember 13, 2019Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a collection of fast-paced, action-packed novellas. The action sucks you in from the first scene and doesn't let up until the end. The romance aspect of the stories isn't as developed as the action and there's not as much character development but it makes sense because they are novellas instead of full-length novels. Even those this collection is a part of the Christian fiction genre, only the third novella (Lethal Secrets) really mentions God. If someone is looking for a quick read in the suspense genre, I recommend these.
Reenie5 Stars Out Of 5four novellas by one of the premiere romantic suspense authorsNovember 10, 2019ReenieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a set of four novellas by one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. They all take place in Tanner Hollow, a town where people take care of each other, even strangers to their community. The romantic relationships seem to develop pretty quickly but I expect that in novellas. There were some dramatic twists and lots of danger.
I enjoyed all the mysteries but I think my favorite was Lethal Agenda. This story connects to the series about the St. John family and completes Derek St. John's story. He comes to Tanner Hollow to see a friend and hopefully run into Claire, a woman he met and can't get out of his mind. Claire has a special relationship with her autistic neighbor, Levi. He's very interested in her job in forensics and it was cool that he played a part in solving the mystery. I'd recommend this book to fans of suspense and mystery.
Thank you to Revell for providing me with a free e-copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

I recommend this book to all mystery buffs.

And finally, in Lethal Agenda Detective Derek St. John helps rescue Claire Montgomery from a masked mad-man. The question is why is he after Claire? Will Derek become a target because of his association with Claire? All four are short stories but they don't feel rushed like most short stories do. MS. Eason gives you plenty of romance and danger. When you pick up this book make sure you have plenty of time to finish it! I loved Tanner Hollow and didn't want to leave.
