Bookshelf Friday - Chasing Secrets by Lynette Eason

Summer sabbatical is over! We are already knee deep in all things fall:) I had a great rest and read many books, and while I'm still praying over my blog format here, one thing I'm 100% on is Bookshelf Fridays! Reading and writing are two of my largest loves, so shouting out about amazing authors and great reads will always be something I do. Let's start off with Chasing Secrets by Lynette Eason. Here's a short blurb, and we'll chat on the other side!


Elite Guardians bodyguard Haley Callaghan may be in South Carolina, but when a photo leads investigators in West Ireland to open a twenty-five-year-old cold case, her life is suddenly in danger. Haley knows how to take care of herself; after all, she's made a career out of taking care of others. But after an uncomfortably close call, Detective Steven Rothwell takes it upon himself to stay with her--and the young client she has taken under her wing. A protector at heart, he's not about to let Haley fight this battle alone.

In a sweeping plot that takes them into long-buried memories--and the depths of the heart--Haley and Steven will have to solve the mystery of Haley's past while dodging bullets, bombs, and bad guys who just won't quit.

Let me start by saying this is the final book in a series. Let me follow that by saying you do NOT need to have read the others to pick this one up. Oh, reading every book in the series always rounds the storyline out for you, but it is not necessary with Eason's books. I picked this one up only having read book number 1, and I absolutely enjoyed every moment of this read!

Eason is a master with twists and turns that keep you turning the page. She has a way of making your heart race without freaking you out. Her main characters are always strong and well matched--and this book remained true to that. I thoroughly enjoyed the idea of women bodyguards who were smart, trained, and still accepted help while maintaining that strength. And in this story, I loved Haley's past and how it comes to light. It was intricate and handled believably. The touch of romance was sweet as well, evenly creating a balance between love and mystery. All together, a book I thoroughly enjoyed.

For a romantic suspense that is fast-paced and keeps you up at night for all the right reasons, you'll love Chasing Secrets. You can pick it up here.
