No One to Trust by Lynette Eason
There were times it was so suspenseful I couldn’t read fast enough, and then touching moments where I wanted to savor every word.
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. Always thrilling,
Lynette Eason outdoes herself in this taut, breakneck story of lies, loyalties, and love that will have listeners up all night to discover the truth hidden in the shadows.
Review by Katie Garvin:
I’ve read many of Lynette Easons books in the past and while each one has been a fabulous, pulse-pounding read (her Women of Justice series landing easily into my favorites shelf) No One to Trust is easily my favorite book she has ever written! This book is over 300 pages long, and every single page is jam-packed with intense action and suspense!
The plot in No One to Trust was pretty intricate. Not only were you dashing around with Summer and Kyle, who constantly had people popping up who were trying to kill them, but you also had an elaborate history to learn about Kyle as well. I found it all fascinating and give kudos to Lynette Eason for her ability to weave such a complex background story into the mix without ever once missing a beat in the suspense.
For those of you who know my reading tastes, you know I like a book that will keep me at the edge of my seat the whole time — and Lynette totally delivers that! The chapters are relatively short and each one opens with a bang. I also really liked how Lynette handled the ‘romance’. Because Summer and Kyle were already married — and because Summer was mad at him almost the whole book for lying to her — there wasn’t much physical romance that went on. Most of the love Kyle had for her was shown in deed and words, and it really showed the reader the depth of their relationship. And how their relationship deepened even more through your trials. It really was beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it develop.
One thing that is often lost in a suspense novel — due to so much action going on — is the character development. But I didn’t find that lacking at all in No One to Trust! As the story progresses, she really fleshes out the characters of Summer and Kyle so that by the time the last chapter arrives, you’ve almost bonded with this couple. I could totally understand Summer’s hurt at Kyle’s lies, but I also could understand why Kyle made the choices he did.
There isn’t any down side to this novel, in my opinion. I enjoyed everything about it. There were times it was so suspenseful I couldn’t read fast enough, and then touching moments where I wanted to savor every word. Lynette Eason definitely penned a winner with No One to Trust and I’m looking forward to the next book that’ll be coming out in this new Hidden Identity series.
Review by Abby:
Wow were to begin with this one?! To be honest I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect going in but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I could not put this one down and finished it hours after starting.
You are drawn into the action from the very first page and it never stops as you join Summer and Kyle/David on the run for their lives. It’s hard to write a review for a book like this without giving too much away so I’m going to keep this one short.
I loved the characters and the author did a fantastic job of letting you see both of their sides to the story and feel the emotions that came with it. She also did a great job of keeping you guessing when it came to some areas even though you already knew who the bad guy was.
Lovers of Lynette Eason’s books or just the suspense genre will love this book and I highly recommend it!
