No One to Trust, Hidden Identity Series #1
It was good.
The book hooked me right from the beginning. When Summer found out Kyle had lied and betrayed her that became the focus of the story. The author kept dwelling on that. We know. Move on. At the beginning of the book in the prologue David's name was Hackett at the end of the book David's name was Hatchett. So what was his last name? Authors shouldn't be in such a hurry to get their books printed and get them proofed and edited better. The killing and bloodshed got to be to much. But, still it was a good book.

Yes And No.....
I enjoy Lynette Eason's books. Her suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat, fast paced, twists and turns everywhere (like her Deadly Reunions series).
So when her new book, No One To Trust, came out, I was excited to read it. The story line sounded good. I started reading it, and the story hooked me from the start. The mystery of it, the intrigue, again, the fast paced thriller. I really enjoyed catching a glimpse into the Witness Protection world. The characters were likeable, especially David and his three marshals.
Only two problems: First, there were several areas in the book that really were redundant. For instance, once Summer found out who Kyle was, it went on and on about how betrayed she felt, how hurt and angry. While that fit for awhile, it was continued throughout the story, long after the point had been made. There were some other areas that were constantly repeated as well.
The only other thing was there was a lot of bloodshed. I know with a murder mystery, someone is going to be killed, but there were SO many, it was starting to seem like too much. Towards the end, people were being killed left and right, and the value for these lives seemed like nothing. Both the good guys and bad guys didn't seem too concerned with the number of killings.
All in all, a pretty good book, but not one of Lynette's best for the above reasons. If you're looking for a fast paced thriller, this is it, though I'm not sure I would recommend it to a friend.

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 relate to the characters and identify with their struggles and choices. While this is a pleasant read and I definitely appreciated the Christian aspect, the suspense did not grip me, and it seemed slightly predictable. Readers who enjoy less tense suspense will enjoy No One to Trust.
I received an ARC from NetGalley.

I like reading a wide variety of genres of literature...but I have one main concern: that the books I read are not filled with swearing and inappropriate content.
It's nice to know that some authors, like Lynette Eason, are writing faith-based suspense fiction that doesn't contradict my values for the books that I choose to read.
One of my favorite authors, Lynette Eason has just published the first novel in her new series Hidden Identity: No One to Trust. For fast paced action and characters that move from one seemingly impossible situation to another dangerous problem, this book has it all!
Summer is a newly married lady, and her husband is now missing. When she finds him, to her dismay she discovers that he is not Kyle, but David, and has a life completely different than what he has told her. She is both hurt and angry as could be expected.
But wait! DoesnÃ¢ÂÂt she still love him? After all, she married the man, not the name. The story proceeds from dangerous situation to deadly situations, and soon Summer and David are fleeing for their lives. This fast paced book keeps the reader in suspense and turning the pages as fast as they can read to see what impossible problem they are going to face next.
There is a satisfactory ending to this book, but I would not recommend it for younger readers as life seems to be cheap, and the way to solve your problem is to either go to work for the bad guys or to kill whoever is causing you the problem. There is some reference to a spiritual life, but the wrong way to deal with your problem is the main emphasis.
In spite of this, I enjoyed reading the book and feel No One to Trust by Lynette Easton is the first of another of her interesting and fun to read books.
