Lynette Eason pulls on my heart strings when she writes books with strong sibling bonds. I just love to read about adult siblings who are close and interact intimately with one another. I think it is because I have only one sibling, we were not raised together and right now we really don’t have a relationship ship. In so many ways it breaks my heart. But I digress….
Lynette’s most recent series is Blue Justice and it centers around a strong family with 5 siblings who do more than just go through life together. They are closely working with one another as each one has chosen the path to serve, 3 brothers and 2 sisters all working day in and out around each other. I loved book #1 Oath of Honor and reviewed it HERE. In book #2 Called to Protect we get to know Chloe, one of the sisters and her K9 partner Hank. Chloe has a broken heart after being ditched by her beau for another woman.
Chloe and Hank get involved in investigating a Human Trafficking operation going on in their town. Alongside Chloe, her brother Linc and friend from her past Blake MacCallum get involved as well. There are a number of twists in this fast paced story and through it all the family bond the St. John family shares is front and center.
Reading this story reminds me of what is really going on in our world today, right here in small town America. The characters in Ms. Eason’s story are well developed and easily likable. Their interactions are real and intimate and reflect a family that trusts each other and depends on one another. While these are just characters in a story they inspire me! I love reading stories that paint a picture of what relationships can be like!
I honestly read through this book in about 2 days (while camping too) and it was super fast paced, fun despite the heavy subject, and a great read overall. I love meeting characters in a series like this and getting to connect with them again in future stories in that series!
Lynette Eason writes great stories!!
NOTE : I received a copy of Called To Protect in exchange for an honest review.
