This book comprising of four stories was one thrilling and exciting ride and I enjoyed every minute of it though it did keep me at the edge of my seat a few times wanting to know who the culprit was and how things would turn out for the people involved. When a book holds you captive from start to finish although short, you know it's really good. It was hard getting to find out the culprits and they turned out to be the least expected people which made it even more interesting because you never knew how it was going to play out. For all the lovers of romantic suspense out there, this is another one to check out. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. All opinions expressed are mine

This book is a compilation of the four Tanner Hollow romantic suspense novellas. Each one is full of suspense and romance set in the small town of Tanner Hollow, but the romance takes a backseat to the suspense most of the time. They are connected by the numerous members of the Tanner family, their spouses, and friends who are all in various law enforcement positions. Because they are novellas, each moves quickly both in the solution to the crime as well as the romance aspect. Yet, overall, it was a very compelling read that kept my attention. **I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing through NetGalley. Opinions are mine alone.

I've got mixed opinions about this book. Let me start with what I like. At the top of the list is the author. Lynette Eason is someone that you can count on for a riveting story. If the book has her name on it . . . I want it! I also liked that it was four different stories in one book. It's a crazy busy time of year and it's nice to be able to sit down and read a story in one sitting. In my opinion November and December were made for novellas. Each of the stories are stand-alone but they are also somewhat connected. The stories are complete but there are connecting threads such as the location (Tanner Hollow) and overlapping characters. I still think you need to read the stories in order but it's okay to finish a story and then not get back to the next one for several days. Finally let me tell you what I didn't really care for. I know I just said that I like novellas this time of year but for me this group of novellas really short changed the stories. In my opinion each of these novellas begged to be a full blown story. Don't get me wrong, I liked them, but I just felt like too much was condensed into a shorter story. Again, in my opinion, novellas really tend to be lighter stories. As with most of Lynette's books there was a lot of intense action. So my final analysis would be to get it if you are a fan of Lynette Eason and/or romantic suspense. Read it and enjoy it and let it be a reminder of how much you enjoy sinking your teeth into her full-blown novels. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

I'm not a big fan of novellas, but I am a big fan of Lynette Eason. So, deciding whether to buy this book was really a no brainer. I was not disappointed. Each is well written, and with her usual expertise, Ms Eason handily got her characters developed well even in the shorted story style. They are all decent characters, with obvious complexity. Each of these stories could easily have been lengthened to a full novel. I also enjoyed how Ms Eason reintroduced the Derek St John character from her Blue Justice series. Good work Ms Eason! I'm patiently waiting for your next book.

Protecting Tanner Hollow by Lynette Eason is four romantic suspense novellas in one book. All four stories take place in the small town of Tanner Hollow, North Carolina. In Lethal Homecoming Kallie Ainsworth returns home for her stepfather’s funeral only to be met attempts on her life by an unknown assailant. Nolan Tanner the boy she left behind still has feelings for her. Can he protect her and solve the mystery behind who wants her dead before he loses her again, this time for good? In Lethal Conspiracy Lillian Maloney sees her fathers campaign manager murder a woman. Now Lillian must run and hide or she will be next. Firefighter Jason Tanner rescues her from a house fire but can he rescue her from the man who wants her dead? In Lethal Secrets Honor McBride rolls into Tanner Hollow with trouble following. Eli Murphy comes to her aid and helps her change a flat tire. Can he help stop the person who wants Honor dead or will he become a victim? And finally, in Lethal Agenda Detective Derek St. John helps rescue Claire Montgomery from a masked mad-man. The question is why is he after Claire? Will Derek become a target because of his association with Claire? All four are short stories but they don’t feel rushed like most short stories do. MS. Eason gives you plenty of romance and danger. When you pick up this book make sure you have plenty of time to finish it! I loved Tanner Hollow and didn’t want to leave. I received this book from the publisher for my honest review.

This is a great collection of novellas by one of my favorite authors. Lynette Eason has a way of ramping up the suspense and action to keep the pages turning. All of the four novellas take place in the small town of Tanner Hollow, North Carolina. In Lethal Homecoming, Kallie Ainsworth returns home for her stepfather's funeral. Kallie left home several years prior because he was abusive to her. On her way, close to her home, someone tries to kill her. Nolan Tanner is a sheriff deputy and a former boyfriend. He tries to keep her safe and find out who is after her. There are several suspects. In Lethal Conspiracy, Jason Tanner, Nolan's brother, is a firefighter who rescues a young woman inside a car in the garage of a burning house in a town near Tanner Hollow that appears to be a suicide attempt. Lillian Maloney, daughter of a congressman running for the Senate, swears that she is on the run for her life because she witnessed a murder. She did not try to kill herself. Jason believes her and helps her find out what is going on. In Lethal Secrets, Honor McBride and her five children left their home in Texas to get away from some bad people who are after her to get money owed them by her now dead husband. Eli Murphy is a bank owner and interim minister in Tanner Hollow and helps Honor with a blown out tire as they arrive in town. When it appears that the threatening people have followed Honor and children to Tanner Hollow, Eli takes them in to protect them and help find out who is trying to kill her. In Lethal Agenda, forensic specialist Claire Montgomery is attacked in her home by someone that threatens to kill her. Help arrives right away as now Sheriff Nolan Tanner and friend Detective Derek St. John (from Blue Justice series) visiting from Columbia, South Carolina hear a quick 911 call from Claire and run the suspect off. Derek is on vacation and able to keep an eye on Claire as everyone pitches in to find out who has it out for Claire. My only wish was that the individual stories had been full length, longer lasing instead of novellas but still great, quick reads that are highly entertaining and recommended. I received a complimentary ARC from Revell through NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are mine only.

What a great collection! These fast paced, action packed suspense novellas will leave you breathless and glued to the pages. They each had the perfect combination of romance and suspense, and each one left me guessing until the reveal. The first three stories were previously published, but the fourth one is brand new and features Derek St. John from Eason's Blue Justice series. While I enjoyed each one of these novellas a great deal, I do have to say that Derek's was my favorite. I was so happy that he finally got his time in the spotlight. Lethal Homecoming This was short, but it packed a big punch. There was a lot of family drama and secrets. A very compelling read. Lethal Conspiracy I love a good conspiracy, so with the title Lethal Conspiracy, I was sure to like this story. And I did! There's so much excitement and so many twists and turns. My only complaint is that the relationship seemed to move a little fast, but it is a novella so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. Lethal Secrets This started off a little slower paced than the others, but by the end it really picked up. The kids were adorable and I loved Lady the dog. This ended up being my second favorite of the collection. Lethal Agenda This was Derek St. John's story and, gosh, was it good! What can I say about it other than the fact that it was as close to perfect as a novella can get? It's my favorite of the collection, by far. It didn't feel too short, although I wouldn't have minded if it had just kept on going. I loved getting to visit the whole St. John clan again. What a great way to end the series! All in all, Protecting Tanner Hollow was a can't-put-down thrill ride that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.

Eason does not waste any time getting to the action. Protecting Tanner Hollow is full throttle in the first chapter. As I read on I discovered why. Protecting Tanner Hollow is a collection of four romantic suspense novellas, so it is necessary to get into the action from the get go in each of the stories. Fans of novellas are going to love this collection. The setting and a few recurring characters link the novellas, each containing a damsel in distress being rescued, very different than the author's Elite Guardians series' female characters, but still delightful. One of Eason's St. John family characters is featured in the last of these stories. Fans of Eason's full-length novels may find the novellas a little light due to the length constraints, but will still find them an enjoyable read. I am grateful to have received a copy of Protecting Tanner Hollow from Revell Publishers via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review and received no monetary compensation.

I thoroughly enjoy romantic suspense. Lynette Eason is very good at this genre and I was excited when I saw she had this book coming out. Eason gives us four wonderfully suspenseful novellas AND one of them gives us Derek St. John's story! I loved her Blue Justice series and the St. John siblings, so I was very happy to read Derek's story. I recommend this book. *My thanks to Revell Publishing for a complimentary copy of this book via Net Galley. The opinion stated here is my own.

f you enjoy a book with non-stop action, full of suspense, and mystery, you’re in for a treat with four riveting stories. What ties them together is the location Tanner Hollow, and a few characters that appear in each story, even if just a brief part. When I finished reading, one I quickly got immersed in the next, and the book was finished before I knew it. For me I loved all of the stories, but the last one reunited me with the St. John family, and wow, I wasn’t expecting it, but it made me happy! I received this book through the Revell Reads Program, and was not required to give a positive review.

I highly recommend this wonderful, lightly connected, four book series! In Lethal Homecoming, Kallie Ainsworth left home years ago to escape her abusive stepfather. Now she has returned and Deputy Nolan Tanner needs to know why she left town…and him. When an attempt is made on her life, Nolan comes to her rescue. It seems that someone did not want Kallie returning home. In Lethal Conspiracy, Nolan’s brother, firefighter Jason, arrives to find Lilly Peterson’s house on fire and she is found in her car in the garage with the engine running. Luckily, he is in time and she convinces him that she was not attempting suicide, but that someone is trying to murder her. In Lethal Secrets, Honor McBride has arrived in Tanner Hollow with her five children after her abusive husband died and she was threatened by a man who said her husband owed him money. Eli Marshall, bank owner and part time pastor, knows that someone from her past is still a danger to Honor and is there to protect her and her children. In Lethal Agenda, Claire Montgomery, forensic supervisor, (who we first met in Lethal Conspiracy), returns home to find an intruder in her home and barely escapes with her life. Who would be trying to kill her? Derek St. John, officer and SWAT team member, is vacationing in Tanner Hollow and has always been attracted to Claire. Will he be able to help find out who wants her dead…and why? In Lethal Agenda, there is a wonderful update on characters from Ms. Eason’s amazing “Blue Justice” series. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)
