I have enjoyed books by Lynette Eason since I first discovered her Love Inspired Suspense novels. The previous two installments of the Deadly Reunions series left me wanting more so I was excited at the chance to review “When a Secret Kills”. As the exciting conclusion of the suspenseful mystery that threatened the lives of Jillian Carter and her friends, “When a Secret Kills” was even better than I could have expected.

Once again, Lynette has skillfully built her plot to a satisfying climax with totally unexpected twists. I loved that even some of the villains were surprised that everything they had believed for ten years was not exactly what they thought had happened. I liked the characters of Jillian and Colton and rooted for them to get back together through the entire book. It was also fun to read about characters from the previous two books in this series.

Truthfully, there was nothing not to like about “When a Secret Kills” and I will continue to look forward to any novel that Lynette Eason decides to write.

When A Secret KillsIn the spine-tingling conclusion to her explosive Deadly Reunion series, Lynette Eason once again treats readers to a tale of secrets that need to be told and dangers that need to be faced.

Investigative reporter Jillian Carter knows it’s time to put the past to rest. She’s tired of looking over her shoulder, letting a killer go free. She’s no longer the scared kid who changed her name and disappeared. Now, no matter what the cost, Jillian must do what she is trained to do—ferret out the truth and expose it. Senator Frank Hoffman committed murder ten years ago—and Jillian watched it happen.

Didn’t she?

Not even the enigmatic and attractive Colton Brady, her ex-boyfriend and nephew of the killer, will be able to make her leave this alone. Get ready for a ride that will make you afraid to be home alone.
