If you are looking for suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat to devour the book’s pages like your life depends on it, look no further than No Place to Hide by award-winning author Lynette Eason. Toss in a sweet romance, characters who feel like friends, and gentle nudges of faith and you have the recipe for the perfect read.
It’s not every day you see your childhood friend and onetime crush on national news. It’s also not every day that your reunion with said childhood friend debuts with you breaking into his house and defending yourself against his martial arts skills. For Jackie Sellers and Ian Lockwood, this is just the beginning of the nonstop action. Ian has been named in connection with a terrorist plot, and Jackie believes his promise of innocence. Using her skills as an operative with Operation Refuge, Jackie helps Ian run for his life. In the stay-up-all-night-until-you-finish-this pages to follow, the reunited pair dodge not only the FBI on their heels but also the bad guys who want to make sure Ian doesn’t survive long enough to tell the right people what he knows. And while they flee, Ian and Jackie must also scramble to decode the email that got Ian into this mess in the first place – but will they figure it out in time to stop the terrorist’s plot?
I loved getting acquainted with the Operation Refuge folks again, friends we met in the first two books of the Hidden Identity series – No One To Trust & Nowhere To Turn. Especially Ron. I adore Ron, and I’m so very glad we got more of his back story in this final book of the series. (*wail* Why does it have to be over??? I don’t like saying goodbye!) No Place To Hide may make more sense in parts if you read the other two books first, but it isn’t absolutely necessary – it can certainly be read as a stand-alone.
As I’ve said before, I’m a sucker for stories about best friends who fall in love. I’ve been married to mine for 15 years 🙂 Jackie and Ian have a history that stretches all the way back to childhood, and it was such a delight to watch them together even in the high stress situations. The depth of their affection for each other left room for humor and comfort and shared strength in the midst of life being turned upside down. And Ian… *dreamy sigh*
This entire Hidden Identity series by Lynette Eason is a favorite of mine and has a spot on my Pinterest board Books I Recommend along with her Deadly Reunion series. I hate that the series is ending, and yes I have resorted to begging Lynette to please tell me that No Place To Hide wasn’t the last one 🙂 She totally did the opposite and assured me it was indeed the last book of the Hidden Identity series *woeful sigh* but she did promise to mull over my desperate suggestion that Elizabeth should have a story. Haha – I think she was just humoring me but if Elizabeth does wind up with her own story, you can come back here and thank me later 😉
I give No Place To Hide – and the entire Hidden Identity series – 5 out of 5 stars!
