Fiction. Romance. Suspense. Christian Fiction. Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover story? The search for her husband-and answers-takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime, where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn't know who to believe. Always thrilling, Lynette Eason outdoes herself in this taut, breakneck story of lies, loyalties, and love that will have listeners up all night to discover the truth hidden in the shadows.
I liked Summer. She was a caring, strong, loving woman. She could also hold a grudge pretty well. Her anger when she learns Kyle is really David and has lied to her is palpable. You can't blame her but at the same time, she has to trust him for her and her sister's life to be safe. I liked Kyle. It was easy to understand why he couldn't tell her everything and you could see that he wanted to. The supporting characters were great, all developed well and realistic. There was some romance in here but it was more trusting God and working through issues than 'falling in love' romance.
I rate this a 4/5. It was good suspense and you weren't sure 'who done it' until the end.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
Summer Abernathy awakes one morning, not to find her husband in her bed,
She married Kyle, now David...huh? Oh you are in for an adventure, unfortunately it seems so real, and probably could be true. Wait until you see who some of the betrayers are...so sad, but Summer is a strong Christian, and don't think she would have made it very far without her rock. Seems David has also been led to the Lord, and is now living his faith, albeit a real rough time.
Once you start reading you are going to be hooked, and I can't wait for the next book in this series, due to come out the Fall 2014.
I received this book through Revell Bloggers Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
Lynette Eason has once again given us an edge-of-your-seat thriller that will keep you glued to the pages as events unfold. With new twists and turns at ever corner there is no guessing what will happen next. Eason has a unique way of weaving a story and showing you the struggles a character goes through. With the nature of the story and how fast paced it is you do lost a little of the character’s and their depth is slightly lacking, although you are told the reason a character may struggle with something you never really get the full picture. I still really enjoyed getting lost in this book!
I received this book complimentary from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
We only know others by the person they present to us. As much as you think you know someone, you can never really know how they have lived when you are not watching, as Summer discovers one morning. This is a clean romantic suspense that is thoroughly enjoyable. The reader can
I received an ARC from NetGalley.
I really enjoyed this action-filled suspense from Eason! I loved how it wasn't your typical romantic suspense, instead focusing on a married couple. I did predict a few things early on in the book, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book. I loved all the
There is quite a bit of violence, and some creepy elements. That is the main reason I docked a star; this rates pretty high up there on my creepy-scale. ;)
All in all, another fabulous one from Eason!
Recommended for ages 15 for intense action, violence, death, and mild romance.
No One to Trust is a bit unusual for the romantic suspense genre. The two main characters are already married, but who knows if they will remain that way. Summer Abernathy wakes up to find a gunman in her bedroom demanding she turn over a hidden laptop. The trouble is her husband Kyle (or is his name David?) has never shared his secrets with Summer. The action starts on page one, and the danger only increases as Summer finds herself with Kyle/David eluding bad guys from both sides of the criminal world. They and the reader are continually surprised by betrayals. Eason takes them and her readers on a twisting course to find justice and perhaps a renewed love for Summer. I loved that I never knew what was going to happen — this book kept me guessing right until the end. Also, the narrator of the audio version did a great job of pacing and making the characters come to life.
(I purchased the audiobook from Audible. All opinions expressed are mine alone.)
I would classify this in the suspense/thriller genre. There is a subplot about Summer and Kyle and whether their marriage will survive his lying to her, but it was not a big part of the plot. There were some
I enjoyed this book except for the main character's lack of sympathy or understanding for the fact that her husband was in witness protection and therefor had not been able to be truthful with her about his past or true identity. Given her occupation I would have thought the she would have held some knowledge about the gravity of his situation and had a little more empathy toward him instead of crying about it. However, her sister certainly was even more on the whiny side also. This was a little hard to stomach at times.
This story is very complex but is so well written that the reader easily stays up with the plot and sub plots. There are so many twists and turns that the reader stays hooked till the very lost shot is fired and the smoke has cleared. A great read to say the least.
Thanks to Revell for this review copy.
