Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry?

No One to Trust reminds me why I write romantic suspense. WOW! pretty much sums it up. From the first page to literally the last word on the last page, the book it tightly plotted, full of surprises, and creatively written. Lynette Eason is off to a great start with this new series called Hidden Identity. Here’s a bit of the details: Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she’s been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover story? The search for her husband–and answers–takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn’t know who to believe. And when it says “discarded” lives, they mean it. Just when I warmed up to a character…bang, gone, or something happens to them that causes heart pangs. And speaking of heart pangs, the romance thread of the story is a real heart-wrenching story line. The author carries the conflict through and never makes it forced, but keeps the emotions real and human, betrayal being one of the main themes in the book. I give this story 5 stars, and am looking forward to book two: Nowhere to Turn this fall. *Thank you to Revell, the publisher, for sending me a copy for my honest opinion of the book. I will cherish it as a keeper.

This is the first book I have read by Lynette Eason. Let me just say it won't be my last. Wow. I have found a new author who had me up way past my bedtime. So many twists and turns in this book. I was grasping the book like my life depended on it as I flipped the pages. Summer (the heroine) is just a regular woman, loving her husband, doing her job and then everything changes one morning when a gun is pointed at her head. Her life is turned upside down and she finds out her husband has been lying to her, the one thing she asked him never to do. Her heart has been broken so many times in the past and she lives in fear of that happening again. Kyle...ur...David...just wants to protect his wife. He is an awesome hero and will do whatever it takes to save the love of his life. Just a great story. If you like suspense you will love this book, I have no doubt. A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I just love this author - her books never disappoint. I pre-ordered No One to Trust and could hardly wait for its release date 12-24-13 (it was like a great Christmas present to myself). Ms. Eason's stories are so fast-paced, it is hard to put her books down. The end of each chapter forces you to continue on, even if there are a million other things you should be doing. To me, that is the sign of a great book! The relationships between the various characters were fascinating to watch unfold, the subtle references here and there to faith are inspiring. The twist and turns make you wonder how authors come up with these things! All of this excitement without profanity/sex. I feel that is another sign of a great author - when they don't need to use those things to "sell" their books. Anout 286 pages on my Nook, don't miss this first book of what is going to be a fantastic new series from Lynette Eason - I can't wait for Nowhere to Turn - Book 2 in the Hidden Identity Series. Thank you for another great read Lynette Eason!

If you like fast paced action, this book will please you. It will be hard for you to catch your breath. It is also about betrayal, redemption, forgiveness and grace. This is one of Eason's best books.

Well the book was interesting that could not put it down until I finish read it. All the books that I have read from her are all very good.

I just couldn't put it down! This story, filled with suspense, love, and tests of faith, is definitely worth the read! It had me on the edge of my seat! I definitely had a hard time guessing Who was betraying the lovely couple. Lynette Eason's faith infused books give me the opportunity to read the suspense genre that also has the ability to inspire. I absolutely love this Author! and all of her books! Can't wait until fall for book 2!!!

Romantic Suspense is one of my favorite genres when I get to just relax with a book. As she's written books, Lynette Eason has become an author I trust to give me a good read with an interesting plot. Somehow I had missed this book, so had to fix that, and I'm very glad I did.  No One to Trust is a wild race from the prologue and the first chapter. When the heroine wakes up to find a gun in her face, you know the book will be a page turner. Lynette does what she does best...she creates characters that are compelling, a situation that is touch and go as the heroine realizes her husband is far from the man she believed him to be. At a few points the action almost goes too fast -- especially at the end. But the characters and story kept me coming back even as I was on vacation in England. I had to know how it ended. Another enjoyable romantic suspense from Lynette Eason.

Highly Enjoyable We only know others by the person they present to us. As much as you think you know someone, you can never really know how they have lived when you are not watching, as Summer discovers one morning. This is a clean romantic suspense that is thoroughly enjoyable. The reader can relate to the characters and identify with their struggles and choices. While this is a pleasant read and I definitely appreciated the Christian aspect, the suspense did not grip me, and it seemed slightly predictable. Readers who enjoy less tense suspense will enjoy No One to Trust. I received an ARC from NetGalley.

If you woke up to a gun in your face held by a very not nice man who asked you for something you didn't know existed and then said your husband might not be who he said he was? What would you do if a federal agent showed up at your door? And what would you do if you didn't know who you could trust, but knew you had to trust someone? This was Summer Abernathy's day. Her husband is missing and may not be who she thinks he is. She has 8 hours to find something that she has no clue about, and she has two very young clients who are counting on her to save them from their abusive daddy. My review of No One to Trust by Lynette Eason? LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE I had so much fun reading this book. She had me hopping and guessing all through the book. Loved that there were twists and turns right up to the end. Loved the story of trust and forgiveness and trust and forgiveness and trust and forgiveness....that was woven again and again throughout the story. My one con. There was one scene at the back of the book (don't worry, I won't tell you which one), that I found entirely unbelievable. It had to do with something Shannon carried with her through her adventure. I don't recall it ever being mentioned and I just didn't see how she would have been able to keep it with her the whole time, but maybe that's the not so closeted cynic in me. Anyway, absolutely loved this book and will continue reading other books by Ms. Eason such as her Women of Justice or Deadly Reunions Series or whatever book #2 will be in this Hidden Identity Series.

Lynette Eason has definitely become a “go to” kind of author for me.  What does that mean?  It means  that anytime I want to read a great suspense book, I know that picking up her latest book will bring  immense satisfaction.  Her latest book, the first in a new series, makes that statement truer than ever. Summer has just found out that her idea marriage is anything but idea.  Her husband isn’t the man that  she thought he was.  And not simply not “what”, but “who”.  Finding out that your husband, and now you,  are part of the Witness Protection Program throws her world into all kinds of chaos.  Her husband has  valuable information and the criminals will stop at nothing to get this information from him.  As they are  moved around from place to place to thwart any danger against them, Summer begins her own  investigation of just who her husband really is.  Will there marriage be beyond repair?  Can she forgive  him for all of the mistrust? Can they make it through this alive?  PICK UP THIS BOOK AND FIND OUT  FOR YOURSELF!! This first chapter does a great job laying out the groundwork for what you are about to witness through  the rest of the book.  The suspense and adventure never stops as the characters are constantly on the  run.  It’s interesting to see how the characters struggle through this tough time and the loss of trust and  how the author is able to show how they can get their trust to grow again.   Is this a "Man’s Book"?   This has a great amount of suspense and intrigue with some great insight into  couples that may struggle through tough times.  I would heartily recommend this book to any man  looking for a great suspense novel.

Summer Abernathy, the main character, is no fainting female. She is intelligent, brave and capable. Her husband has a secret that could get both of them killed by it doesn't stop her from doing everything she can to save him. Even when those secrets rip her heart out.  If you love suspense, you'll love this book. Every scene in every chapter puts you in a cliff-hanging, nail-biting place. And every scene will draw you deeper and deeper into the story. You've got know what's going to happen to them! On her website, Eason says "It’s my goal to write fiction that will keep you in suspense--infinitely!" She definitely met that goal with No One to Trust!

Lynette Eason's latest series, Hidden Identity, is off to a fantastic start! What a great story! It's different than the norm right off the bat because the not-so-typical 'love interests' are already married, but Summer finds out quickly that she really doesn't know her computer programmer husband at all. He's disappears, and when she sees him again and finds out who he really is, she has to forget much of what she thought she knew and decide if she still loves him and if she can ever trust him again. This is a fast paced, action packed story that you don't want to miss.  This book has been provided courtesy of Baker Publishing Group and Graf-Martin Communications, Inc.

There's more twist and turns in this beautifully written book then the roads leading up a Mountain top. So hang on and for a ride of a life time for sure!!!! See if you can keep up.   Summer doesn't know who she's married to anymore, after  some mean men wake her from a deep sleep  with a gun pushed in her face asking questions about Kyle and will do anything to get their hands on him even kill whom ever gets in their way.   Summer is an attorney, she had been working on a very delicate case. One that's close to her heart. She not going to let anything or anyone stand in her way to be there to help her clients. So bad guys watch out you just might have picked the wrong gal!!   As this story escalates you will be wondering who Kyle and Summer can truly trust and you'll keep turning the pages as fast as you can to find out, just like I did.When you find out it will have you'll shake your head and go oooh my gosh. This story will have you in the dark for along time, like me ---- no cheating now and skipping pages or you'll miss a lot of great action that takes place all the way through this story.   You'll find the CIA, the FBI, the cops and Rangers all kind of people, all kind of bad guys you can think of all rolled into this story. It will have you tide in knots. It has more action then you'll ever expect.   I recommend this book highly if you love a lot of action, thrills and suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat, then this book is for you.    I  received this book free from Revell for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one.

Lynette Eason in her new book, “No One To Trust” Book One in her Hidden Identity series published by Revell takes us into the life of  Summer Abernathy. From the Back Cover:  She doesn’t know who she’s running from–and the man she loves may be someone else entirely Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she’s been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover? The search for her husband–and answers–takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn’t know who to believe. Always thrilling, bestselling author Lynette Eason outdoes herself in this taut, breakneck story of lies, loyalties, and love that will have you up all night to discover the truth hidden in the shadows. Trust!  When someone trusts you it is a wonderful thing.  When someone destroys the trust that you have in them it is very difficult to build that trust back up again.  This is what happens to Summer.  She finds out that secrets really can get you killed.  Now she must team up with her husband whom she doesn’t know anymore to find out the truth behind all the secrets and lies and not get killed in the process.   “No One To Trust” is a thriller, no doubt about it.  Summer and David’s lives are in great danger from page one and the danger grows with the body count.  Just when you think you might know where the story is heading Ms. Eason tosses in another turn which you take at high-speed on two wheels.  Ms. Eason makes her characters so real and you root for them to complete their mission and you root for their romance to blossom.  Ms. Eason knows how to tell a story that keeps you flipping the pages and guessing as to who the bad guys really are.  This is a wild ride read and I recommend it highly.

I. LOVE. LYNETTE EASON. BOOKS!! I was thrilled to learn she was writing a new series and No One to Trust is the 1st book in that series. One word describes this book…WOW!! just WOW!! Summer and Kyle are happily married. If there was one thing Summer made clear when they were married, never EVER lie to her. Little did she know, Kyle wasn't even Kyle, and everything about her husband as she knew it…was a lie! One day, a knock on the door changes everything for Summer. Her life, her marriage, her security, and potentially her future! Kyle is in the WITSEC and is a VERY WANTED MAN!! He is wanted by a very powerful, very evil man, who seems to have countless hit men and connections on the inside from the police all the way up to the government. Which explains the title…Trust No one! Lynette takes us on a wild ride and if I even began to think I had something figured out, I was mistaken every time! I love those books, don't you??!!  If you love to read Romantic Suspense novels, this one is sure to be a favorite!! I highly highly recommend  it !!! Thank you Revell, a Division of Baker Publishing Group for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest review!

This is book one in a new series by Lynette Eason called Hidden Identity. This first book had a different flavor than her past books. The romance element was taken out and it was purely suspense. I loved it! It was super fast paced, character twists that you didn't see coming and full of redemption. Ms. Eason did a great job keeping the reader captivated, kept the plot plugging along at a fast clip and did it all without a love-blossoming sub-plot.  If you enjoy clean suspenseful books, you will enjoy this one. The one part I don't like is that the next book in the series doesn't come out until the fall of 2014! Revell Books sent me this complimentary copy to review for them. Opinions expressed are my own.

Every time I read a Lynette Eason novel, I think it's her best yet, and No One to Trust is no exception. I read this with my heart in my throat! Eason is a master at romantic suspense, pacing the action and danger perfectly and coupling them with relatable character portrayals. No sentence is wasted in this briskly moving and nail-biting story. My only frustration is that I couldn't put it down so I finished it way too quickly. If only she could write as rapidly as I could read! Five stars - don't miss this one! Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Revell as part of their Blogger Review program.

No One to Trust, Hidden Identity Book 1 by Lynette Eason No One to Trust is a fantastic fast paced read that is sure to keep you at the edge of your seat. If you love Christian, Romance, or Suspense Fiction this is the book for you. It is a full of action, suspense, faith, and betrayal. No one is who they seem to be. Summer Abernathy wakes up to a nightmare. Her husband is missing, not who he says he is and a madman is trying to kill her. Kyle or David wakes up in the hospital knowing he has to get to his wife because his past has caught up to him. Together they fight to stay alive. David is part of the Witness Protection Program and his cover has been blown. He has deceived the woman he loves and is ready to fight for his life and wife. Read No One to Trust to see if their marriage can survive the lies and betrayal. The author Lynette Eason has created believable characters, mystery around every corner and throws in unbreakable faith. I was able to read this book in a few hours because I could not put it down. If it were possible to give this book higher than five stars I would. I want to give a high-five to the author Lynette Eason and publisher Revell for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. Revell provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for their generosity.

Every time I read a book by Lynette Eason, I declare it to be my favorite. But I really do think that No One To Trust is my favorite ... at least so far! In the opening pages, we learn that Kyle is hiding some major secrets, and Summer's life is threatened. As Kyle begins revealing his past to Summer, they must run from the people who are threatening their lives. Can Summer trust Kyle? Will he be able to win her heart again? And more importantly, will they live to tell about it? What an amazing book! No One To Trust is an incredibly fast-paced book, and I loved every minute I spent with it! It seemed that every time I thought things were wrapping up, something else happened that pushed the story even further. At times, the story was reminiscent of a TV show that was popular several years back, The Unit, which I loved! It was fun to have the male protagonist—and his partners—play such a large role in the drama. I also thought it was a unique twist to have the romance storyline be centered around a married couple. It's definitely a bit different than most romance novels, but it played out really well. Overall, I loved this book and cannot wait to read the rest of the series! If you're looking for an intense, suspenseful, you will love No One To Trust by Lynette Eason! [5 stars] I received a free copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my fair and honest review.
