Overview

"I love this book. It will keep you guessing until the very end."--Dee Henderson, bestselling author

After a brush with death due to equipment failure, smokejumper Alexia Allen is ordered to take time off while the incident is under investigation. She makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother's home and attend her high school reunion. Yet trouble seems to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she is confronted with murder, arson--and a handsome detective.

But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she struggles to accept and forgive her family's past, she must also decide if the secret she's been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light.

Chock-full of the suspense and romantic tension you've come to expect from Lynette Eason, When the Smoke Clears is the explosive first book in the Deadly Reunions series.

Lynette Eason is the author of several romantic suspense novels, including Too Close to Home, Don't Look Back, and A Killer Among Us. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America. Lynette graduated from the University of South Carolina and went on to earn her master's degree in education from Converse College. She lives in South Carolina with her husband and two children.

    Welcome...to the edge of your seat!

    After an unauthorized, calculated call to rescue to small child in a fire, where Alexia Allen almost lost her life due to equipment failure, she decides to attend her ten-year class reunion and to recuperate at her mother’s home while that incident is under investigation and her job is under consideration.

    Ten years earlier, the night Alexia graduated from high school, her friend, Jillian Carter, came running into the graduation dance with a haunted look on her face, out of breath, and mumbling that she saw something she shouldn’t have. She immediately plunged through the back door, never to be heard from for almost ten years, leaving Alexia and Serena Hopkins aghast, wondering what Jillian saw. Alexia left that night also, estranged from her family.

    Since Alexia’s return to her mother’s house, her life has been in danger and considered a possible suspect in a murder/arson case. She wonders if the equipment failure and the circumstances at home are possibly interrelated.

    When the Smoke Clears, by Lynette Eason, is an explosive suspense that includes murder, fires, stalking, sniper gunshots, kidnapping, secretive complicities, and one very handsome detective, Hunter Graham. I consider Lynette’s book a thriller, with twists and plots that are forever being rearranged due to unknown, outside influences. Lynette makes us privy to some of those secretive complicities, but not enough to understand the full scope. Alexia and Hunter are unaware of these outside influences that are actually fueling their fears and anxieties, as there seems to be no safe place to hide her.

    To ease the tension of the dangers that Alexia and Hunter find themselves in, Lynette throws in Graham Hunter’s mayoral candidacy dinner, Alexia’s attempts to reconcile with her mother, and a tensive romance trying to bud out from under the circumstances. The ease of Hunter and Selena’s faith puts Alexia on edge. What had God ever done for her? Where was He when she needed him? Surprises abound as the story evolves.

    Lynette’s book had me pumped with all the action, suspense, and danger. The characters’ interactions and relationships were real. The tension was palpable during the high intense episodes. This author knows how to create a moving story of suspense as well as interspersing the tenderness of the Lord’s interventions in unsuspecting places and people. It’s natural and real.

    My reaction at the end of the book: “I just can’t believe I have to wait for the next book!” When The Smoke Clears ends in an integrated fashion for a partial resolution, but it leaves you wanting more, more, and more, opening the door for a sequel! Fantastic ride for a great suspense/thriller. Fabulous writing from a superb author. Lynette is one powerful, plot-twisting, heart-pounding writer!!

    awesome book!!

    OHH my word!! this book is awesome, I was up until after 1 a.m. finishing this book. I was hanging on the edge of my bed for the ending! I loved this story and am now anxious for the next book!

    Alexia Allen has come home, after ten years of avoiding her mother and running from her horrible past, she has come home. It is high school reunion time, so it seems a good time to come home, plus her mother has started contacting her lately asking her to come home. Why? Why would a woman who threw her out, and forced her to leave after graduation, ask her to come home now? After living years with a husband who beat her, and the kids, who tried to kill them all why would Hannah Allen want her daughter to come home? Alexia struggles with accepting this new Hannah Allen, that her mother has become. Add that to the fact that arriving home, she finds a dead man in the basement, and is constantly under attack, and in danger of her life, Alexia is convinced coming home was not a good thing to do.

    I loved this book, I cannot state that too much. In my opinion this book is Lynette's best book, I just could not put this book down. There is so much action and the mystery is spine chilling, it will pit brother against brother and even brother against sister, and all the while you will be wondering who is behind all of it. Definitely a book that is deserving of a 5 star rating!

    This is a fantastic book. It grips you from the very first page, and keeps you guessing until the very end. This is the first book that I've read by Lynette and I just bought the next two in the series. I can't wait to read them, as well as her other series.
