Not impressed, review to come
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

Book Summary: She thought her days of hiding were over . . . but the danger has just begun. The day Danielle Harding takes her eleven-year-old son and flees from her abusive husband is the same day Kurt Harding dies. A relieved Dani believes she and her son are finally

safe--but in reality, things are just heating up. When Kurt was alive, he took something important from a mysterious individual--who wants the item back and believes Dani now has it. As she and her son run for their lives, they have nowhere to turn, until she hires Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge and goes into hiding. Unfortunately, she won't be able to hide for long . . . From the first breathless scene, this tension-laced story will hold you in its iron grip as bestselling author Lynette Eason propels you along in a race to discover the truth.

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.

Nowhere to Turn Book 2 in Hidden Identity by Lynette Eason
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
Show More
within six months she realizes she is no safer than before. Her brother in law is stalking her. Someone is trying to kill her. With nowhere to go she turns to Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge to protect her and her son. And then the action starts, danger is everywhere they turn. What seems like an open and shut stalking case soon proves to be so much more. Who can she trust and where can she hide.
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.

Nowhere to Turn, book 2 in the Hidden Identity series, is the first book I have read by Lynette Eason. But following this reading experience, it definitely will not be the last. When Eason says welcome to the edge of your seat, she is not kidding. From the first page to the climax, I was holding my

breath, hoping all would be well for the characters that took hold of my heart. This is the perfect book for fans of romantic suspense. Run, don’t walk, to get your copy!

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!

Highly Recommended.

Audience: Adults

Nowhere to Turn is an action packed read from the first page through to the end! Eason is an excellent storyteller and I never lost interest right through the surprising climax.

Dani had been living through an abusive marriage. She and her 11 year-old-son, Simon, lived through constant fear and
Show More
pain on a daily basis. Her husband Kurt, an FBI agent, seemed to have no conscience, and took pleasure in other people’s pain. Suddenly her husband is dead and she and her son should be at peace, but an attempt is made on Dani’s life. And the story unfolds as Dani’s life spins out of control and she lives in fear for herself and her son.

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.

MY GENERAL THOUGHTS: Nowhere to Turn is full of suspense from page one, and I found myself rooting for Dani and Simon right from the start. Both characters were greatly written and extremely likable, as was Adam. The "bad guys" were well written as well, and though I could not necessarily agree
Show More
with their motives, I did understand why they did what they did without completely understanding why anyone in the world could think like them......If that makes any sense. The plot was very well written and anything aside from the romance between Dani and Adam was totally unpredictable.

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.

I enjoyed the chance to read the second book in this series. There were a few references to the first book, but it can be read without having read the first book.
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

all. But then things start happening again and she turns to Operation Refuge to help her out. They take her to a safe place, but things still happen.
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.

Another enjoyable read by Eason! Although that villain was incredibly creepy . . .

Recommended for ages 16 for mature themes, such as domestic violence, romance, and the aforementioned creepy bad guy.

For some reason, I kept thinking the title was Nowhere to Run and had a song snippet running through my head whenever I picked up the book--it wasn't until I tried to enter it to review that I realized I had the title wrong--even though either title could apply.

It was a very complex plot and each

time I thought they'd solved the mystery, something else would pop up.

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.
