Lynette Eason: Oath of Honor

By Kelly Bridgewater

Police officer Isabelle St. John loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. With three brothers and two sisters, she's never without someone to hang out with--or fight with. And she knows they'll be there for her when things get tough. Like when her partner is murdered and she barely escapes with her own life.

Determined to discover exactly what happened, Izzy's investigation sends her headfirst into a criminal organization, possibly with cops on the payroll--including someone from her own family. With her dead partner's handsome homicide detective brother Ryan shadowing her every move, Izzy's head is spinning. How can she secure justice for her partner when doing so could mean sending someone she loves to prison? And how will she guard her heart when the man she's had a secret crush on for years won't leave her side?

With her signature fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, Lynette Eason invites readers into a captivating new series where justice is a family affair.

My Thoughts:

Lynette Eason is widely popular romantic suspense author, who I have read every single one of her books and novellas. She knows what the fans of romantic suspense want. Non-stop action with a hint of romance. She is heavier on the suspense versus the romance, so if you prefer more romance than suspense or prefer fifty-fifty than she might not be the author for you. As for me, that is what I like. I think suspense should be the majority of the focus, than the romance buds along the way.

The plot for her opening book Oath of Honor to her Blue Justice series is wild. From the first chapter where we meet Isabelle as she mingles with her wild and huge family, I was engrossed in this active family. From there the mystery takes off, throwing me for a loop in every chapter. Eason is a master at ending chapters with cliff-hangers, so she allows the reader, me included, to stay up way too late, trying to finish one more chapter, but then the next thing I know, I have finished the book. Oath of Honor is no exception. I finished the book in a little over one day, and loved it.

Isabelle is a police officer with a huge family. We meet her parents and all her siblings. They're a loving family who supports each other. Isabelle fights for the right for justice for a death of a friend, and the rest of the story centers around finding that killer. Enters Ryan. Her best friend's brother and the guy she had a crush on for  a long time. With the troubles arising, Ryan and Isabelle try to deny the feelings they have for each other, but like I mentioned earlier, most of the story focuses on putting together the pieces to find the murderer and bring him to justice. Not the romance.

Overall, Oath of Honor is a great introduction to a new series by Lynette Eason. With plenty of nail-biting, page-flipping moments and characters who stand out with their big families, Oath of Honor is another book for my Eason keeper shelf. I believe fans of Carrie Stuart Parks, DiAnn Mills, and Dani Pettrey will enjoy this book.  

I received a complimentary copy of Oath of Honor by Lynette Eason from Revell Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
