When the Smoke Clears by Lynette Eason Book Review

When the Smoke Clears: A Novel (Deadly Reunions)

by Lynette Eason

From the publisher:
As a member of the North Cascades Smokejumpers, Alexia Allen always takes care of the equipment that keeps her safe. So when she nearly dies in a fire due to equipment failure, she knows something is up. Ordered to take time off while the investigation continues, Alexia makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother’s home and attend her high school reunion. Yet trouble seems
to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she’s involved with murder, arson—and a handsome detective. But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she strives to remember and forgive her family history, she must also decide if the secret she’s been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light.

Chock-full of the suspense and romantic tension readers have come to expect from Lynette Eason, When the Smoke Clears is the
explosive first book in the Deadly Reunions series.
My Review:
This is one of those books I read in one night.  I couldn't put it down.  It was screaming with intrigue.  Lynette Eason, has a way of writing that just compels me to to stay up past my bedtime.  One day I will learn not to start her book when it is dark outside.

Every character caught my attention.  However, I felt some major details were missing.  Even though there will be more books in the future - it just feels like this is NOT a standalone book.  It needs the rest of the series to understand it fully.

This book did a great job in entertaining and made you wonder who was the "bad guy". 

Due to the violent nature of the book, I would only recommend for mature eyes. 

I can't wait to read more of Lynette Eason!

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
