David Hackett stumbles upon his business partner holding a gun over a dead body.  David keeps quiet about the murder, but knows it is time to gather the evidence of his partner’s criminal activities and disappear.  His partner was also his best friend.  David gets the evidence, turns it over to authorities and then enters a witness protection program.  He is in line at the bank when he meets Summer.  He is drawn to her instantly and a relationship begins.

Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find strange men in her home, demanding the location of her husband.  She doesn’t know where he is, but the assailants decide she can help them get what they are after.  They give her 12 hours to find a computer and hard drive or they will return to kill her.  Summer has no idea what they are talking about but wants to stay alive, so she agrees to give them to these men.  She ransacks the house but can’t find a computer or hard drive.  She does stumble on to some other hidden information about her husband and begins to wonder who she married.  As she continues to search, but time is running out.  She eventually is reunited with her husband and is furious when she finds out that he has lied to her, which is the one thing she has told him she can never forgive.  She has been betrayed yet again.  She also learns she is involved in something sinister and deadly.  Can she learn to trust again?

This story was a thriller right from the get-go!  I couldn’t put this book down.  Lynette Eason is a writer of suspense, who always delivers.  Her stories draw readers in and the characters and action keep them glued to the pages.  I also like how she interjects elements of faith into the stories without appearing to preachy.  Summer has trust issues and learns she can always trust God and lean on Him.  He is true to His promise and never breaks His word.  This isn’t a recent book, but it is sure one worth reading.  There is plenty of tension, suspense and action to keep the reader’s attention.  Book two in the series, Nowhere to Turn, is next on my list to review so stayed tuned for more on this thrilling series!
