Book Review: Active Defense by Lynette Eason

About the Book:

As a former field surgeon in Afghanistan, Heather Fontaine is used to life-or-death situations. She just didn't expect them to follow her home. When she returns from a party to find that someone has broken into her house--and threatened her friends--she assumes it is the stalker who has been following her and creeping her out. She hopes to find safety and peace of mind by leaving the city and hiding out in a small town. But trouble has followed her even there.

Luckily, a stalker isn't the only one watching Heather. Travis Walker has been secretly watching out for her for weeks. As owner of his own security agency, it's what he does. Together, Travis and Heather must figure out who wants her dead--and why--before it's too late.

Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason will have you looking over your shoulder as you dive into this fast-paced, suspense-filled story about losing control and finding something even better. 

My Review:

Third in the Danger Never Sleeps series, Active Defense is true to its title, and is an exciting read the whole way through.  The group of friends from previous books is included and needed for their various skill sets, but this novel definitely stands on its own.

Dr. Heather Fontaine was used to danger, having served at a military field hospital in Afghanistan.  But when danger follows her home, she knows it is time to flee.

Travis Walker makes himself the lead in finding Heather and protecting her as the team tries to figure out who is after Heather and why.  Their relationship develops slowly into more than friends.

This book is action-packed and gripping in its page-turning appeal.  Readers of suspense will definitely want to pick this one up!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Revell, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

This book is available for purchase here.
