Double Take Review

About the Book

 Detective James Cross has been honorably discharged from the Army Criminal Investigation Division due to wounds sustained when an IED blew up near him. Now with the Lake City Police Department, he's rooming with this good buddy and partner, Cole, while he figures out his family dynamics.

Physician Assistant Lainie Jackson is eighteen months out from an attempted murder perpetrated by her ex, which ended when she managed to grab the weapon and shoot him. When he appears to have survived and is back to finish the job he started, Lainie insists it's not possible. But someone keeps trying to kill her, and she keeps seeing his face.

Together, Lainie and James must work together to find out who, exactly, is after her and why he wants her dead. And failure is not an option.

USA Today bestselling author Lynette Eason will leave you breathless with this fast-paced first book in a brand-new series. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

This story starts off with action and doesn't let up until the very end. I really enjoyed Lainie's character the most and I felt for her through the book. There are creepy stalker scenes and also a confusing mystery of a past death that make up the majority of this book. The suspense is really well written and I tended to not read it at night if I was alone. I think the author did a good job in wrapping up the loose ends and taking the plot where it needed to go. I do wish I liked the secondary characters more and the romance just seemed super rushed and thrown in. I enjoy a good suspense novel and this book is pretty good. I just couldn't quite give it five stars. 

Four Stars.
