No One To Trust by Lynette Eason ~ A Suspense Book Review

Hidden Identity Series, Book 1

Back of the book:


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.

Always thrilling, bestselling author Lynette Eason outdoes herself in this taut, breakneck story of lies, loyalties, and love that will have you up all night to discover the truth hidden the shadows.

My thoughts:

Can you imagine being married to someone and sharing intimate moments and details with that person only to find out they aren't who you thought they were? Can you imagine waking up one morning to find a gun pointed at your face? That's the situation that Summer Abernathy finds herself in.

If that isn't enough to stir your interest let me back up a bit and tell you that in classic Lynette Eason style the prologue begins with a murder. It then skips ahead fourteen months and the race is on! The title No One To Trust is so appropriate. Summer can't trust her husband and she can't trust his handlers from the witness protection agency and she certainly can't trust the mobsters that are after them all. Even her own family leaves her with doubts about their trustability.

This is one of those books that you probably shouldn't start when you crawl in bed for the night. (Although I must admit that is my absolute favorite time to read suspense!) If you do you might as well fix a cup of coffee to go along with it because you are going to be up all night finishing it. The story is fast paced and continues to take unexpected turns right up to the very end. In fact there are fifty-eight chapters and at chapter fifty there is a major turn of events that made me gasp. The last four or five chapters are absolutely mind blowing because it involves someone you least expect. Finally with the very last chapter you feel like you can take a deep breath and start believing that they are going to live happily ever after. But then . . .

The very back of the book contains the first chapter of the next book in the series, Nowhere To Turn. I told myself not to read it but of course I did. Let me just say that this is going to be a heart-thumping series. We just have to be patient until the fall when book two comes out.
