When the Smoke Clears by Lynette Eason* A Review

As a member of the North Cascades Smokejumpers, Alexia Allen always takes care of the equipment that keeps her safe. So when she nearly dies in a fire due to equipment failure, she knows something is up. Ordered to take time off while the investigation continues, Alexia makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother's home and attend her high school reunion. Yet trouble seems to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she's involved with murder, arson--and a handsome detective. But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she strives to remember and forgive her family history, she must also decide if the secret she's been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light.

Chock-full of the suspense and romantic tension readers have come to expect from Lynette Eason, When the Smoke Clears is the explosive first book in the Deadly Reunions series.

She is a member of American Fiction Christian Writers and Romance Writers of America. A homeschooling mother of two, she has a master's degree in education from Converse College. She lives in South Carolina.

  I read Lynette Eason’s first series The Women of Justice series and thought they were great, but her new series  Deadly Reunions is even better. This book When the Smoke Clears is a fantastic book. It was just so hard to put down. I wanted to read it all at one time, but wished I wouldn’t get done reading it. Just love the characters and the action in this book.
  Alexia is one brave woman, she grew up with an abusive dad and learned how to hide her feelings. She was accursed of starting a fire that burned her dad and sister, but it was never proved. Alexia blocked it out of her mind, so she really doesn’t know what happened. As soon as she graduated high school she left, because she felt no one loved her or cared. She made a nice life for herself, but lost contact with friends and family. As the 10 year reunion was coming up she decided to go home.
  Things and events kept happening to cause the police to believe that she was behind it all, but one officer believed in her, Hunter. He was from her high school, but older than her.
  So many things happen and you will love how the story goes, but you won’t know what happens until the very last chapter.
Lynette Eason is quite a storyteller. I love her books and will highly recommend this one.
