Overview

Spunky and outgoing, nothing much bothers medical examiner Serena Hopkins—except for the thought of falling in love again.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Medical examiner Serena Hopkins is used to grisly crime scenes. She has managed to shut her emotions off as she navigates the world of death, but that is about to change. When she is called to a murder scene, she immediately recognizes the victim as a former classmate. On the scene is another familiar face—her high school crush, Dominic Allen. As they investigate, evidence begins to point to a serial killer. Serena also realizes that a secret she has been keeping may make her the killer's next target. VERDICT This intense nail-biter of a thriller (after When the Smoke Clears) is a sure bet for Eason fans and those who enjoy Frank E. Peretti.

In the sequel to her first “Deadly Reunions” book titled When The Smoke Clears , Lynette Easton continues the story of Alexia, Hunter and friends. This time, Serena Hopkins, the town medical Examiner, is up against a slew of murders that all have one link: she graduated with every victim. The killer is a copycat of a murderer years ago called the Doll-Maker Killer. It can’t be the original because he is still behind bars. Serena and her once-crush from high school, FBI agent Dominic Allen (Alexia’s brother) make it their purpose to find this murderer and stop him. It’s too close to home to let it go – or to let anyone else handle the case. In an interesting study of serial killers, groups of friends and how battered and abused children can turn out, Easton has done an excellent job of filling out the plot, bringing in surprise characters (Camille, the battered teen) and weaving it all together in a book that will keep you up until it’s done. I had absolutely NO clue as to the killer’s identity! I thought I did but I was wrong – which made it an even better read!

I really liked this series by Lynette Eason. The female characters in this series were strong characters. The action was not quite as fast paced in this second installment of the series, but it still kept me on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend this series and this authors other books.

If you read When the Smoke Clears, then you'll love this one! It picks up shortly after where the first one ended, and leads you on another suspenseful journey! I can't wait for the next one!
