Book Review: When a Heart Stops

When a Heart Stops  is the second book in the Deadly Reunion Series by Lynette Eason.  The first book When the Smoke Clears was the first in the series and I reviewed it back in February. 

I enjoyed the first book and I was pleased to get a chance to follow up the story and read this book.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book too! I really enjoy how Ms. Eason has two story lines going at the same time, which we do not fully understand, still. 

There is something that happened 10 years ago when Serena (the main character in this story), Alexia (the main character in the first book), and Jillian (their friend from high school) last saw each other, the night they graduated from high school.  Now the characters are gathering for their reunion, but there is more going on that we still do not know yet. 

In this story, Serena is being stalked by a serial murdered, and her protector is the boy she had a crush on in high school, but he is all grown up now and an FBI agent.

There are many twists and turns while Serena and Dominic are trying to stay alive, solve the murders, and figure out why Jillian ran away 10 years ago.

I loved the characters in this story.  Serena is learning to trust Dominic as she faces more and more danger.  Despite the history of her relationship with her father, Serena realizes that she may just have to learn to trust Dominic to stay alive.

I recommend this book as a fun, quick paced, mystery with some romance mixed in.  I am already looking forward to the next book in this series!!

Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

About Lynette

Lynette Eason grew up in Greenville, SC. Even as a young girl, she knew she wanted her life to reflect the love of Jesus Christ.

After graduating from the University of South Carolina with a Business Degree she used for a very short time (sorry Mom and Dad), she moved to Spartanburg, SC to attend Converse College where she obtained her Masters degree in Education. During this time, she met the man she would marry—the boy next door!

She is married to Jack Eason, who speaks, leads worship, and consults ministries around the country. They have been married for 15 1/2 years and have two children.

NOTE : I was offered a copy of When a Heart Stops, in exchange for an honest review, by Revell Publishers.
