My Thoughts on Double Take by Lynette Eason


She survived a murder plot and her attacker is dead--isn't he?

Detective James Cross has been honorably discharged from the Army's 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 his 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.

My Thoughts:

So, this review starts off with a big WOW. I was significantly engrossed in this story and how the characters were going to make it. I had a hard time putting this story down as the characters were presented with scenarios that just didn't make sense. I mean how could it. The man who is causing Lainie to fear for her life, and for good reason, is supposed to be dead. And at Lainie's own hand. Is this her ex-boyfriend who wouldn't take no for an answer, or someone who is trying to finish what he started?

Her best friend's brother and her once upon a time crush, James Cross is a detective who has just moved back to town. He has made it his mission to help Lainie get to the bottom of this stalker with nefarious plans against Lainie and help her understand that she is not losing her mind. He's got her back, but what happens when the evil seems to always be one step ahead?

This was a riveting suspense that will keep the reader up at night and quite possibly make said reader make sure no one is following them. This was a story that not only offers suspense, but romance, second chances, and being able to come home again.

I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
