Summary

Summary

Police officer Isabelle St. John loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. With three brothers and two sisters, she's never without someone to hang out with--or fight with. And she knows they'll be there for her when things get tough. Like when her partner is murdered and she barely escapes with her own life.

Determined to discover exactly what happened, Izzy's investigation sends her headfirst into a criminal organization, possibly with cops on the payroll--including someone from her own family. With her dead partner's handsome homicide detective brother Ryan shadowing her every move, Izzy's head is spinning. How can she secure justice for her partner when doing so could mean sending someone she loves to prison? And how will she guard her heart when the man she's had a secret crush on for years won't leave her side?

With her signature fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, Lynette Eason invites readers into a captivating new series where justice is a family affair.

Publisher's Weekly Review

This inspirational thriller from Eason (Moving Target) nicely mixes crime and romance in rural South Carolina. Childhood friends police officer Izzy St. John and rookie Kevin Marshall are now police partners. One night, acting on a tip from an informant he wasn't supposed to be in contact with, Kevin drags Izzy to an abandoned warehouse to do surveillance on a high-level arms deal. But when Kevin goes rogue and sprints into the warehouse where the deal is happening, he is killed in a spray of bullets. Kevin's detective brother, Ryan, has already lost a brother in Afghanistan and vows to find who murdered Kevin and why. While neither Ryan nor Izzy can officially be on the case, they work together in their own informal investigation. In the process, Izzy and Ryan get closer than ever, despite a killer on the loose and their own emotional baggage. Although concerned and delicate with both grief and romance, Eason's well-rounded story doesn't spend too much time bogged down in either as the harrowing plot unfolds. Eason's fans will enjoy this first installment of a promising new series. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Library Journal Review

Izzy St. John comes from a rowdy and boisterous law-enforcement family. But their love for one another and respect for their profession make them a cohesive and formidable unit when arrayed against a common foe. Izzy's loyalty is challenged, however, when her partner is murdered and clues indicate the killer might be connected to her family. She must work with Det. Ryan Marshall, her late partner's brother, to solve the case. Inspired by the TV series Blue Bloods, Eason's (Chasing Secrets) first book in a new series features a large and varied cast of characters and an exciting, twisty plot that keeps readers guessing until the explosive finale. While not the primary focus, the romance that develops between Ryan and Izzy adds a pleasant undertone. Verdict This nonstop, white-knuckled thrill ride will please devotees of police procedurals.-Christine Sharbrough, First Baptist Church, Bellville, TX © Copyright 2018.
