Lynette Eason has done it again!
When the Smoke Clears is the first in her new Deadly Reunions series (doesn't that sound ominous!) and it has everything I loved from her Women of Justice series - romance, mystery, and characters with intriguing professions.
But she's taken it up a notch in the suspense department! The first few chapters come hard and fast with all the pacing of a great thriller. Oh there's trouble. And we know it. But who's behind it and how is our main character, Alexia Allen, involved?
Well, that's the story!
And let's chat for a moment about Alexia. Did I mention that she's a smokejumper? In the first few pages, we see that she's driven, tough, brave, and compassionate. She's also got a stubborn streak, a serious problem with her mom, a past that haunts her, a crush on a cute detective that might be turning into something, and oh, someone's framing her for murder . . . when they aren't busy trying to kill her.
As the danger intensifies, so does the romance. Will they survive to see where this new relationship leads? And if they can find the person responsible for all the drama, will Alexia finally be safe?
We'd like to think so, but . . . oh come on! You should know by now - I never give away the ending!
