I can't say enough good about this series. I really would love if Lynette Eason would decide to add another book or two...or three. I have read several of this author's books, and she has a wonderful writing style. The character development always unfolds perfectly, the suspense fantastic, just the right amount of Christian flavor to be inspiring (but wouldn't turn off a reader who may not get into that aspect), always a page turner and a story that makes you feel as though you've stepped right into the book. Don't pass up this series...and check out some of Eason's other books too! You'll be glad you did!

Women of Justice Book Three Lynette Eason 2011 Revell Fiction/Suspense/Romance Reviewed by Cindy Loven Kit Kenyon, is dealing with finding out that she was adopted, specifically finding out that she was a twin. She has met her sisters, and birth parents, even moved to their town. However the anger she feels toward her adoptive parents is costing her. Her relationship with her adoptive mother is suffering, her relationship God is suffering also. As a police officer, she has to stay focused. Being distracted can cost her, or her partner their lives, so she has to pull it all together, especially now that the case they are on is beginning to look like a serial killer is on the loose. Noah Lambert loves his job, but he is not happy with the choice of his new partner. He swore he never wanted to work with another woman partner after the last female partner was killed in the line of duty. Noah's faith is a huge part of his life and his job, and finding out that his new partner is struggling with her faith, is another distraction for Noah. Noah and Kit are on the case of the gavel killings. They also are dealing with someone shooting at them. Not only is there a crazed killer out there, it seems that someone is also targeting Noah and Kit, there must be no distractions. This book was my favorite in the Women of Justice series, having read and reviewed the first two, it was really great to see the familar characters of Jamie (Kit's twin sister) and Samantha and their spouses. The suspense in this book was edge of your seat reading and it will pull you in to the very end of the book. Lynette has wonderfully written this series and you will want to read all three of these books. Even though each book refers to the previous story, you will not be totally lost if you missed one of them. 343 pages US $14.99 5 stars.

The final novel in the Women of Justice series, A Killer Among Us pulls out all the stops. Author Lynette Eason gives readers a book crafted with so many twists and turns they will guessing all the way to the end! With a touch of romance and lots of suspense Eason's latest novel gets right to the heart of the matter, pitting a hostage negotiator and a seasoned officer against a maniacal serial killer. Eason fans will be sad to see the series end, but it certainly goes out with a bang!Many readers will be sad to see the end of the Women of Justice series. Lynette Eason has a remarkable way of making the reader become invested in her characters. But, I'm sure they will looking forward to what comes next from Eason. She has the ability to write romantic suspense without all the blood and guts and still add in a Christian message. Blending the romantic suspense genre with issues of faith is not an easy task, but Eason does it with style. In her latest book, she takes on a serial killer bent on his own form of justice. Eason's knack for creating compelling characters reaches all the way to the villain in this book. Readers will find it almost chilling being inside the head of the killer as he plots his next move. It is a riveting and heart-pounding novel that provides so many twists and turns that the reader will have to be on their toes if they want to figure out the killers next move. I loved the way Eason told the story not only from the point of view of the hero and heroine but also from the killers POV as well. It changed the entire dynamic of the book. There were several things going on in this novel besides the main plot line involving the murders. Kit is dealing with some serious issues in her family life. She has recently discovered she was adopted and has moved in order to be closer to this new family. But, it is definitely not without it's challenges. Kit is a strong woman, a hostage negotiator and feels that she has a handle on things. But this new family dynamic throws her for a loop. I enjoyed the way Eason showed Kit's vulnerability as she settles into a new rhythm in her life. She learns a hard fought lesson when she realizes that even when we sometimes forget about God, he doesn't forget us. Noah on the other hand thought he had everything figured out. He is a good detective. A godly man, who is loyal and just. His problems stem from losing his last female partner. When you feel like something is your fault or happened because of something you did, it's hard to forget. Noah deals with this situation throughout the book and learns that it's almost as important to forgive yourself as it is to forgive others. I thought Eason did a spectacular job of getting her message across with these two characters while not beating the reader over the head with it. It felt natural and understandable and I think readers will appreciate the subtlety. I would recommend this book, to romantic suspense fans. It may be a little short on the romance, but it's definitely there as Kit and Noah find an attraction between them that is hard to deny. This book will also appeal to fans of fast paced thrillers and even mystery readers as well. It isn't a long complicated book an can be read in a couple of sittings, if not straight through. It will definitely keep your attention and have you biting your nails.

After reading Samantha and Jamie Cash's stories in the first two books of this series, I wasn't sure where this book would take us. Eason definitely delivered a great story with some interesting twists! Another fast-paced, suspense-filled, romantic story was hard to put down, and I was sad to see this series end! [4.5 stars]
