AUTHOR: Lynette Eason
Elite Guardians bodyguard Haley Callaghan may be in South Carolina, but when a photo leads investigators in West Ireland to open a twenty-five-year-old cold case, her life is suddenly in danger. Haley knows how to take care of herself; after all, she's made a career out of taking care of others. But after an uncomfortably close call, Detective Steven Rothwell takes it upon himself to stay with her--and the young client she has taken under her wing. A protector at heart, he's not about to let Haley fight this battle alone.
In a sweeping plot that takes them into long-buried memories--and the depths of the heart--Haley and Steven will have to solve the mystery of Haley's past while dodging bullets, bombs, and bad guys who just won't quit.
With a suspense as tangled as my ear buds cord, Chasing Secrets kept me guessing and flipping pages until the very end. I wasn’t even close to guessing the mastermind behind the danger. Well done!
Haley’s past—what she can remember of it—compels her to protect those who cannot protect themselves, like young Zeke and his family. But the past she cannot remember intrudes into her world, bringing with it even more danger.
Steven is trying to forget the past, but when he moves back to his hometown to care for his ailing father and overwhelmed mother, he is forced to face his pain. When Steven and Haley meet at an emergency call, attraction is immediate and undeniable, no matter how hard they try to suppress it.
Forgiveness is an integral part of this story, and Steven’s journey toward it is understandably difficult. Without preaching, Ms. Eason shows the need for forgiveness and the faith-steps to achieve it.
Catching Secrets is a fast-paced, thrilling read, and it earns five stars. I was given a copy of this book by the publisher.
