the beginning of this book, the first pages had my heart racing and had me tapping my Kindle pages like crazy and then.... way too soon it just fizzled and went wrong. It became predictable and boring, too bad...don't bother with this one

Review: This is the first book that I have read by Lynette Eason from Revell. I was hooked from the start. There was a lot of intensity throughout the story. I did think the ones protecting Dani were not as attentive to the details as they should of been, they could not figure out how they were being tracked. That seemed a little sloppy for a group with their background. When Simon was not happy or following through with the hiding and on the run part was realistic. About 2/3rd of the way into the book I thought the suspense stalled and some of the mystery was taken away with key information provided was not preferred by me. I loved the suspense, plot and characters. Kurt was a real piece of work in the beginning and Stuart was really no different. Well written and believable over all. Loved the secondary characters of Tori and Kade. Overall the story line was enjoyable. There were several surprises with the final fireworks!
I would like to thank Net Galley and Revell for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
Danielle Harding thought after her abusive husband passed away she could finally live a normal life. After being trapped for twelve years, it’s time to show her hearing impaired son a ordinary life. She feels she is finally safe but
I give Nowhere to Turn 5 stars. It was fast paced, with a little romance, and lots of suspense. Lynette Eason is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. She did an outstanding job of brining the character to life in a believable fashion. Nowhere to Turn is part of a Hidden Identity series but can be read as a stand alone. Book 1 No One to Trust is also a 5 star fantastic read.
I want to give a high-five to the author Lynette Eason and publisher Revell for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for the authors and publishers generosity.
Dani Harding is a character to love. The victim of spouse abuse and stalking, she is determined to keep herself and her son, Simon alive. The threats seem to come out of nowhere, and she and her protectors are kept on their toes to ensure survival. And just who are Dani and the reader to trust? It’s hard to tell the bad guys from the good. I loved Dani, Simon and Adam, the man entrusted with their safety. But it is the fast-paced suspense that really sold me. There is a definite creep factor involved in the story line and the threats come so fast that it keeps the characters and the reader off balance. This book was hard to put down; the twists and turns kept the pages turning. For fans of romance, Nowhere to Turn delivers as well. But the pacing is credible. Dani and Adam recognize the dangers of taking things too fast. I appreciated the restraint in their developing relationship.
Nowhere to Turn is easily read as a standalone novel, but I will have to go back and read book 1, No One to Trust. And book 3, No Place to Hide, is due out Summer 2015. Can I wait, I guess I’ll have to!

Dani had been living through an abusive marriage. She and her 11 year-old-son, Simon, lived through constant fear and
The author did a marvelous job bringing the complex characters to life. They were well developed and I was drawn into their world of emotions. There is violence, but no graphic descriptions, or strong language – Kudos to the author for that! My only negative comment is I felt some of the storyline was implausible – a bit hard to believe. But what a wonderful premise for a story! Lynette Eason is a new author for me, and I’ll certainly be looking for more of her books.
This is a book full of mystery and suspense – an intense read – and one that I enjoyed immensely! My rating is 4.5 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Revell and NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. All opinions shared are my own.
QUESTIONABLE CONTENT: There is quite a bit of violence that includes quite a few murders that are semi-detailed. Gun-fights, scary stalking, and masked kidnappings are also some of the spine tingling suspense scenes.
OVERALL CONCLUSION: I give Nowhere to Turn 5 out 5 five stars for a story well written and time well spent! Thanks to the publisher for giving me this book in return for an honest review. All comments and opinions are my own.
Danielle is trying to leave an abusive lifestyle when fate intervenes and it seems like she won't have to take her son and leave after
This book was great to read and one that I hated putting down before I had a chance to finish. I liked seeing how the story came together and got a bit of insight as to how some types of technology work.
I look forward to another book in this series.
I received this book free to review from the publisher.
Recommended for ages 16 for mature themes, such as domestic violence, romance, and the aforementioned creepy bad guy.
It was a very complex plot and each
I thought it was interesting that they had a child character who was both deaf and a math genius. It was nice to learn a bit about how he communicated with others.
I felt like there was a bit more discussion of faith topics in this book than there are in some others.
