Brushes with death is an experience Maddy McKay knows well. She’s too familiar with
the sensation and fear. First when her life was nearly taken from her months
earlier. Now, her best friend (and the man she’s crushing on), Detective Quinn Holcombe is
recovering from a similar experience. In the hopes this new bond they’ve formed will be
the start of a new normal, Maddy spends her waking hours helping Quinn during
his recovery.
Nothing goes as planned when a voice without a face kidnaps
Maddy and Quinn, holds them on a remote island and taunts them. Now their only
option is to escape a killer bent on sinister plans that chase Maddy and Quinn
into conspiracies and their respective pasts.

BOOK REVIEW | Always Watching by Lynette Eason

Each of the novels I read from Eason continues to impress.
Her skill in this genre has been perfected with each novel she’s released. In
particular this Elite Guardian series is full of twists, turns and turmoil. A series that is, really, her best yet, and I say this aware how much I’ve enjoyed
prior novels from her pen. One of the best elements of this novel is that it
doesn’t limit its characters. By this I mean the setting doesn’t keep “still”
in one place as I anticipated. When novels confine their “space” to one place,
they do themselves a disservice. This is because they stifle the emotions and plot
There’s something about this series that gives it an edge. From
the “first look” (cover design), to the
synopsis and interlocking stories of four female bodyguards, these stories are
top shelf. This, the third book of four, follows in its predecessors footsteps
and no doubt, sets a tone for Chasing
(book four). As an aside, though each book tells its own stories, I’d recommend you reading them all and in order. As its title affirms and suggests, Moving Target moves at a quick pace,
keeping pace with the urgency of its protagonists.
For many, because the will-they-or-won’t-they story has been
a thread throughout this series, Maddy and Quinn’s book has likely been
anticipated. Even amidst danger and dodging bullets, the pair still manages to
have some lovely, flirtatious and witty moments. It’s these scenes we live for.
The quiet moments between two people who clearly
like each other. When they’re not frustrating us (with their stubborn inability
to talk to each other), they’re making us smile and swoon.
Quick-Witted, smart and fast paced, Moving Target is sure to entice the romantic suspense enthusiast in
all of us. Buckle in and hang tight for an adventure and the thrill of “the
chase” as only suspense fiction can provoke.
Synopsis: When Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe don’t show up for Quinn’s
surprise birthday party, his friends know that something is very wrong. Their
search turns up little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy just decided to
take off for a long overdue vacation. But it soon becomes apparent that they
did not leave of their own accord.

Maddy awakens in a cement room with no idea
where she is. But it’s not long before she realizes she’s in the clutches of a
madman exacting revenge by hunting. His prey of choice? Humans. Now Maddy and
Quinn must run for their lives, hoping to find their killer before the next
game begins. Because if they don’t win this game, they die. – Goodreads

Coming Next from Lynette Eason: When police officer Isabelle St. John’s partner
is murdered, she must work with Detective Ryan Marshall to solve a case that
may force her to choose between family and justice. – Goodreads, January 2018

      It is really great, Linda. One of my always favorites! Lynette captured a great concept while writing these – though I will confess, book one might be my favorite of those I've read (still have to read the fourth and final novel).

      Happy reading! :)
