Having enjoyed Lynette Eason’s first book in the Women of Justice series, Too Close to Home, I was excited to have an opportunity to listen to the third book of the series, A Killer Among Us. Those that have read my reviews in the past and are familiar with me are probably wondering how in the world I chose to do that without reading the second book of the series. I will very likely go back and read that someday, but skipping that book didn’t take away from my enjoyment of A Killer Among Us.

Review on my blog (to be posted 3/21):

A Killer Among Us, the final book in the Women of Justice series, is the fifth book I've read by Lynette Eason and another great suspense read! I loved the two main characters, Kit and Noah, but I think Jamie and Dakota (from book two, Don't Look Back) are still my favorite couple in the series with these two being a close second. :)

The suspense was really good

Kit Kenyon finds herself in a hostage situation. A husband is threatening to kill his wife because she wants to leave him and take the children. Kit thought she had the situation under control, only to have it end badly.

Noah Lambert and Kit are thrust into a string of gruesome murder cases. It seems that this serial killer deals out his own justice. He left the following message on his latest victim that said “Life’s a laugh. How does the death penalty feel? An eye for an eye.” As Noah and Kit
4.5 stars.

A sicko decides he's better than everyone else and begins to administer "justice" to those who offend him. And then he decides that Kit would be the perfect wife for him.

Kit is getting to know her newfound sisters and settling in with a new partner on the police force. She is coming to grips with learning that her mother is an adoptive mother, and she's gotten suspicious of God from the shock of finding a birth family. And, of course, the last thing she needs is a serial killer focusi

Great suspense!!! Thriller even.. Whats really interesting is that even the sickest people wish to have a perfect life. But what hit me more is that it is the children that are abused in their innocence end up all messed up, this in a way justifies their actions-- not that i support whafthey do but i feel somewhat sorry for them. After all it is those chilhood years that define who we will become in life--it is important to have good influence in those years..
I love how Kit delt with it and man

This is a follow up to the previous Women of Justice series books, and seems to follow the same formula as book 1. That's not to say it wasn't worth reading! It was a very good book, and the serial killer mystery had a lot of surprising twists and turns in it. Kit was a bit annoying as a heroine and Noah got a bit too preachy for my tastes, but it is easy to get caught up in the mystery and ignore the preachyness of the overall story. All in all a good conclusion to the series!

This was my favorite book from this series! It was exciting, sweet, full of action…all around awesome. And not quite as much gory detail (to be blunt) as some of the books had. My favorite of the three…I highly recommend it!

I knew who the killer was almost from the beginning, but it was still a good read with suspenseful scenes.

WOW! I loved, loved, LOVED this book!!! I found it nearly impossible to put down! While this is the first book I have read by Lynette—and the third in a series—I was instantly caught up in the drama and while enough backstory was given so I was never confused, I am now itching to get the two previous books and read of Samantha and Jamie’s adventures in detail! By the time I got to the end of this book, Lynette Eason was firmly written in my list of favorite authors, and A Killer Among Us is now ...more

Instead of reviewing each individual book, I decided to review the series as a whole. Please leave a comment and tell me if you like this better.

This series is fairly old and the first one that Lynette Eason put out. I think I can safely say that she has come a long way. While this series might have been a good competitor seven years ago, it just doesn’t stand a chance now. Christian fiction has definitely come a long way since then.

This series follows three ladies

It is hard to say anything but good stuff about this novel. I am going to say this again, I have had the pleasure and the honor of saying it a few times this week; I enjoyed interviewing Lynette Eason on my blogtalk show, The G-ZONE,here is the link:
If you tune into the show, you will gain some insights into the novel as I ask some pretty tough questions and get to the real heart of the matter with her. You will get the skinny on this intense and enjoyabl

I have been seeing this authors books on Goodreads, and other book sites and when I ran across a copy of "A Killer Among Us" at a bookstore, I bought it.
What a delightful surprise it is.
There is no sexy scenes, no violently gory acts, no mention of how great criminal stuff is. Instead it is a book, written from a woman Cop's point of view, that describes the problems and turmoils of being an officer of the law, especially a female one, in this day and age.

I couldn't even begin to describe how anxious I was to read and review the 3rd and final book in the "Women of Justice" Series ~ "A Killer Among Us!" Lynette Eason has quickly become one of my Favorite Christian Suspense Authors for sure!

Not only are there people getting killed around them but it is evident that either Noah or Kit are getting hunted too!

This is the third book that I’ve read of Lynette Eason and I must say this one is my favorite. A Killer Among Us is so well written that I couldn’t figure out who the serial killer was. Usually I try to always figure out the killers, but was surprised this time. A Killer Among Us is the third book in the Women of Justice series, which is a fantastic series.

Lynette Eason is back and her third title in the Women of Justice series is once again not for the faint of heart.

If you’re squeamish, the disturbing and sometimes graphic descriptions of the serial killer’s methods in this story might turn you off. However, if you’re looking for an exhilarating, fast-paced, suspenseful thrill then you are in for a treat!

The action seems never-ending and A Killer Among Us is an interesting combination of murder, suspense and romance all rolled into one.

It doesn't take a detective to figure out that Lynette Eason is a great suspense novelist. With grisly crime scenes, psychotic killers, great cops, and a touch of romance, Eason has come up with a near perfect spine-tingling tale that will appeal to both men and women.

Soft spoken, kind-hearted Noah Lambert is out to change the world one person at a time while working as a detective. As new partners they barely have time to get to know one another before a gruesome crime is committed requiring their attention.

The story opens with thirty-two-year-old hostage negotiator, Detective Kit Kenyon, in the middle of a stand-off with a forty-four-year-old man named Virgil Mann who had taken his wife, Ann, and their twelve-year-old daughter, Melanie, as hostages. Kit’s new partner of three weeks, Noah, wasn’t with her as he was tied up at a murder scene. Kit was on her own, although she did have the sharp shooters outside ready at any moment to take the suspect down.

I got chills from the first couple of chapters and I didn’t want to put the book down. Which was pretty much true for the entire story.

What I love about the “Women of Justice” series that has really set them apart in my opinion, is the viewpoint of the villain included in the story. To get inside his head?—chilling and a unique spin on the normal mystery formula.

While “A Killer Among Us” can be read separate from its predecessors, I enjoyed the chance to catch up with the characters from the pr

I enjoyed A KILLER AMONG US, but it did not captivate me from the first page like the other two books in the Women of Justice series.

Kit Kenyon is a hostage negotiator who has been teamed with new partner, Noah Lambert. Though attracted to Noah from the start, she feels the need to prove to him she is as good of a cop as any, even if she is a woman.

Noah Lambert is taken with Kit’s keen abilities as a negotiator. The fact that she’s beautiful hasn’t escaped his notice either. But he knows a roman

Eason's third book in her Women of Justice series will not leave you disappointed. It's full of the high action, mystery, romance that fans have to expect. She, as she did in the other two books in the series, does a beautiful job of developing the primary characters as well as the secondary characters. By the end of the book, it really feels like you've gotten to know the Cash family and the in-laws very well.
