When The Smoke Clears - Lynette Eason
When The Smoke Clears is the first book in the Deadly Reunions series by Lynette Eason. It is a novel chocked full of suspense, intrigue and nail biting scenes. Smoke jumper Alexia Allen is told to take some time after a near miss in a fire is being investigated. She makes the decision to return to her hometown after a ten year absence. Within hours of being back in town she is thrust into the middle of a murder investigation as a potential suspect when she discovers the body of an ex-boyfriend in her mother's house. The story takes many twists and turns along the way and in the end while solving the murder, unveils many more questions and leaves you wanting more.
I have never read one of Lynette Eason's novels before, but needless to say I am hooked. Her ability to create tension and suspense is superb. The struggles that Alexia has with her past and rectifying that with a loving God who cares for her are very real. I loved the journey of Alexia's relationship with her mother and her struggles with forgiveness and letting go.
I cannot wait until book two comes out!! I highly recommend this book to everyone who likes a nail biting page turner.
