When the Smoke Clears

Alexia Allen never intended to return home, but then she almost dies in a fire. With time on her hands due to the resulting investigation, she decides to attend her highschool reunion. Which means returning to the home she left ten years ago. But trouble follows her home. Someone wants Alexia dead, and anyone that gets in the way is going to die, too.

Detective Hunter Graham hasn't forgotten Alexia even though it's been ten years since he saw her last. He's still attracted to her, but when he meets her again, she has the blood of a murder victim all over her hands. Did she kill her former boyfriend? Or is she the target?

The body count begins to pile up, and the unknown danger stalks ever closer. Fires, explosions, snipers--can Hunter stop the assassin before they succeed in taking out their target, Alexia Allen?

I was excited to get my copy of When the Smoke Clears in the mail from Amazon this week, and since I had Good Friday off from work, I started it this morning.

The story was so gripping, I had trouble putting it down and finished it this evening. Lynette Eason knows how to write suspense! The writing is so tight and the action so jam-packed, I think I forgot to breathe a few times. I can't wait to see what happens in book two of Deadly Reunions. When a Heart Stops will be out in October. 

On a side note, I love the cover of this book. Even if I hadn't read any of Lynette Eason's books before (which I had), the cover would have made me pick it up.

Grab a copy of When the Smoke Clears. My copy is going on my bookshelf. It's a keeper!
