Moving Target

GIVEAWAY

EASON, LYNETTE
MOVING TARGET

Intensity. Skill. Tenacity. The Bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.

When Maddy McKay and Quinn Holocombe don't show up for Quinn's birthday party, his friends know that something is very wrong. Their search turns up little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy have vanished. And 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 who exacts revenge through games -- hunting games. His prey of choice? Humans. Now Maddy and Quinn must run for their lives and outwit their killer when their game begins.

Because if they don't win this game...they die.

My Review:

No!
Nooooo!
Seriously? NO!!!!!!!

That was me intermittently throughout the whole read. Mercy, my heart can't take these creepy, sinister suspense novels. Some of the time I was yelling at the characters and some of the time I was chiding myself and occasionally I was fuming at the author. Oh yeah...big time. Gah! She made it right in the end but still. I think this story shaved ten years off my life!

The kind of novel that keeps you nervously checking over your shoulder days later. A truly twisted, evil mastermind brings a new level to the meaning of stalking. Edge-of-your seat from start to finish. A sense of urgency. A muddied trail of clues. The shadow of danger lurking on every page. Cue dark organ music and make sure you have replacement bulbs for your night lights!

As always, Eason expertly weaves romance and suspense in equal measures which thrills me no end. Love the fact that Maddy and Quinn have a history as friends...with the hope of something more. But both have personal issues that prevent them from acting on those deeper feelings.

This is the third book in the Elite Guardian series but it reads great as a standalone. I'm a fan of the series so I enjoyed the 'page time' previous heroines and heroes received in this one. Love the continuity of the bodyguard angle. And there's a delicious teaser from book four which has an Irish connection. Woot!!!! Chasing Secrets will be out this summer.

  1. That's the sign of a good book when you fume at the author for putting their characters through the wringer...LOL!! Even when they DO make it right in the end :-) Lynette is one of my go-to authors for suspense!

  2. Sounds like this is a book I would need to read while it is light out and not right before I go to bed! I haven't read any of her books yet but I'm going to look for them.

  3. I'm scared already and haven't even read the book yet! I'm such a chicken. lol I have a confession to make, but shhh... I have never read a Lynette Eason book. We didn't have too many suspense books on our blog, but would love to try one of hers! A few years back I knew I was missing out when I watched a livestream of the ACFW awards. Lynette won the award for the best Christian suspense category!

  7. I recently purchased a PB copy of the first in the series when it was on sale at our Christian bookstore. Like Diana, I hadn't read any of Eason's books prior to Always Watching, but I love the female-strong premise. tlhcoupon(at)hotmail(dot)com
