Eason offers readers a unique thriller to keep you reading late into the night!
Oh. My. Goodness! This is the second title from Eason I've read and it blew me away. I wasn't quite in love with the other book of hers I read, When the Heart Stops, but I decided to give her another chance and I'm glad I did! I am totally impressed with No One to Trust as far as suspense/mystery/thriller titles go in the Christian genre. Every time I speculated how the rest of the novel would go, I was sorely mistaken.
The lead characters, a married couple named Kyle and Summer Abernathy, were a delight to read about, despite the obvious conflict and danger in their lives. Summer possesses a strength greater than I think she realizes, and her spunk helped her through all the challenges. She didn't wail and whine and complain like most women would, but rather was strong and handled everything going around her well, given the circumstances. I think it is for this reason that I like her character and personality so much.
Kyle embodies the hero most readers are familiar with, a man with a military background who now works/helps law enforcement, or as in Kyle's case, works as a C.I. Also as you have probably guessed, he naturally has run into some trouble. I appreciated the respect and love he showed his wife especially when they were at odds. I wish I could elaborate on what I mean, but... you'll have to read the book for yourself.
I am really, truly, glad I signed up to review No One to Trust. I simply love to curl up with a good mystery every now and then. As a final note, I really liked the theme of forgiveness and the comparison to a well known story in the Bible. I highly recommend this book to readers ages fifteen/sixteen and older and to fans of Irene Hannon and Dani Pettrey. As far as content goes, the villain is a real creep (he's obsessed with snakes. Disturbing, much?), but we don't see too much of him. There are several fights between good guys and bad and then people are shot and beaten.
I received a copy of this book from Revell in return for an honest review of my opinions, which I have done. Thanks!
Summer Abernathy wakes up
one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent
on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which
Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at
the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover
The search for her husband--and answers--takes Summer ever
deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment
and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust
already shattered, Summer doesn't know who to believe.
