After having read all seven of this author's books that are published by Revell, I knew she is one of my all time favorite authors and I would enthusiastically read anything she wrote!

I was not disappointed, Protective Custody was an awesome suspense read! And let me just say, while this is a Love Inspired Suspense book, so it is relatively short at just over two hundred pages, Eason's writing is equally amazing no matter the length of the story!

One of the things that drew me to this story speci
2.5 for Protective Custody

Plots and Thoughts

First off, does anyone else feel like this particular series by Lynette Eason is reading a bit like a formula written series? Just a thought.

Carly Masterson's mentor was killed by a man let off by a judge due to a technicality. She has never forgiven the judge, firmly believing that he never should have turned the man loose. That judge was Nicholas Floyd and now his life is being threatened because he won't step down and let another judge (one that cou
Carly Masterson, a deputy U.S. marshal, has been ordered to guard the judge that let a criminal go free, a criminal who murdered her mentor right after being released. Can she put away her anger to protect Nick, who she has a strange attraction to despite his role in her mentor's death?

I enjoy Lynette's books, and this one is no exception. The plot is interesting and well-developed. The characters are unique and likeable. Carly is a strong character who battles between her heart and her duty, wh

Judge Nicholas Floyd is used to threats when a high profile case is coming up & doesn't usually give them the time of day, but this time, if he doesn't relinquish his position to someone they want to judge the trial his niece & nephew will be targeted. Nicholas has no intention of giving in to the threats & while he's not concerned about himself, he is worried about the children, so he calls for protective custody.

Enter Deputy US Marshals Carly Masterson & Mason Stone, the protec

The Love Inspired Suspense series takes me to the location of each book and into the lives of the main characters. The locations, characters, and circumstances are very realistic and would make great movies! They create sympathy for the female lead character and the resolution of each situation is satisfying in the end. I LOVE these books!

Another exciting book by Lynette Eason. I love her books.
I find I like these romance novels better when the two people being brought together already have a history. In this case, Carly and Nick became friends when she was part of his protection detail two years ago; now they are reunited in similar circumstances. I love the twist of HER being part of HIS protection detail, but again, the ending feels a bit forced. I think we can picture the couple ending up together without necessarily seeing the proposal or wedding, which is what most authors feel c ...more
Lynette Eason is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors in the world of Romantic Suspense. Protective Custody proved to be another thrilling read - keeping me awake until the wee hours of the morning! I cannot wait for her next Love Inspired Suspense release - as well as the third book in the Women of Justice series, coming soon in May.

the best of the bunch so far. Finally, a heroine who saves instead of always being saved!!!!!!!
I really didn't like this book. The storyline was too unbelievable and ran too fast.
