Adult Rating: 4
Lynette Eason kicks off a new contemporary romantic suspense series with No One to Trust, where a wife finds out that her husband is not the man she thought he was — not his name, not his background, and definitely not his relationships.
In No One to Trust, family lawyer Summer Abernathy wakes up to find a gun pointed at her as three men demand to know the location of her husband, Kyle Abernathy, although they ask for him by another name, David Hackett. She is unaware is in the Witness Protection Program and a key witness at a crime boss’ trial in three weeks, if he lives that long. While she discovers the truth, others are trying to find him and will use any means to prevent him from testifying.
The crime boss kidnaps Summer’s client and children as pawns to get back at Summer’s husband. At least one of her husband’s protective detail is on payroll of the crime boss. Summer’s sister also betrays them to the crime boss. Summer doesn’t know who to trust now. Picking the wrong person to trust could cost her everything: her husband, even her life. Will she discover the truth in time?
Eason is an excellent storyteller, weaving plot twists and character development. Just when the reader thinks the story is done, there is another plot twist, a knot in the story line. Violence in the story is appropriate but not graphic, and the faith element is light not overpowering. Eason’s book will be of interest to fans of Dee Henderson, DiAnn Mills, and Irene Hannon.
