Don't Look Back by Lynette Eason*a review

Don't Look Back (Women of Justice Series #2)

Twelve years ago, forensic anthropologist Jamie Cash survived a brutal kidnapping. After years of therapy, she has made a life for herself--though one that is haunted by memories of her terrifying past. She finally lets herself believe that she can have a close relationship with a man, when signs start appearing that point to one frightening fact--her attacker is back and ready to finish the job he started all those years ago.
Can she escape his grasp a second time? And will she ever be able to let down her guard enough to find true love?
Filled with heart-stopping suspense, gritty realism, and a touch of romance, Don't Look Back pulls you into its twists and turns to hold you there until the very last page.

About the Author:
Lynette Eason grew up in Greenville, SC. Her home church, Northgate Baptist, had a tremendous influence on her during her early years. She credits dedicated Sunday School teachers and Christian parents for her acceptance of Christ at the tender age of eight. Even as a young girl, she knew she wanted her life to reflect the love of Jesus Christ. Lynette and Jack have two precious children, Lauryn, eleven years and Will, who is nine. She and Jack are members of Hope Point Community Church in Spartanburg, SC.

My Review
This is book two of the Women of Justice series. In Lynette Eason’s first book in this series we learn a little about Jamie, but with Don’t Look Back we find out Jamie’s whole story. Jamie is a forensic anthropologist and at the beginning of the book she has to examine two sets of bones from unmarked graves. She find signs that these women were killed by the same man who tortured her 12 years ago. Jamie is the only surviving victim of "the Hero", a serial killer who tortures his victims to rescue them from the pain.
We watch Jamie as she controls her feelings with prayer and giving everything over to God. She goes from a frightened, solitary person to one who lets the Lord lead and He opens her eyes and heart to finally peace and happiness.
Dakota, the detective working the case, and a friend of Jamie and her family, he really likes Jamie and is resolute that nothing will happen to her. See how Dakota and Connor (Jamie’s brother-in-law) find clues and finally get close to find the killer. You will be amazed at the tiniest bit of evidence that can turn a case around.
Don’t Look Back will keep you on the edge of your seat and the surprise at the end spellbinding! You will find many things in this wonderful book, chilling scenes, heart stopping plot and a sweet romance , also happiness, joy, life, but also death. So something for everyone. I highly recommend this book Don’t Look Back and all books by Lynette Eason.

Wow this sounds like a new author for me to check out. I love detective/mystery books. It is cool that I come from the author's neck of the woods. I was born 15 mins south of Greenville in a small town called Pelzer. Great review and will be checking out the first book of Lynette Eason's series.

Thanks for the review!
I read the first book in this series - talk about a thriller! This one sounds just as fast-paced!

This story sounds very scary...the little bit I read was interesting! Makes me want to read it!

Sounds like the kind of book to read by the fire during a thunderous rain storm. A well written book with an unusual plot and story. I would definitely pick this book up to buy. Bearing on a Christian foundation, the story has maturity and room for Christian growth. I would recommend this book to friends.
