Wow! Wow! Wow! What a book! I was pulled into Jamie's story instantly and couldn't put the book down. With the way Lynette wrote, especially the Hero's parts, there were times I was creeped out! Careful about reading this late into the night, lol!

LOVED every minute I spent in this book!!!!!!!

Women of Justice series is one of my favorite law-enforcement suspense/thrillers I've read to date!

This was a re-read for me and I'm delighted to say that I loved it every bit as much this time around! I think Jamie and Dakota are two of my favorite of this author's characters, they are both just so awesome! The first time I read this book I flew through the pages because I didn't want to put it down, but this time I was able to take my time and savor the story! And even though I already knew what was going to happen the suspense is so good that it still managed to get my adrenaline pumping!...more
This book was fast-paced and I didn’t want to put it down. It definitely kept my attention as far as the plot and action went. As far as the romance department it wasn’t great, but romance isn’t the primary category/direction for this series, so I wasn’t expecting it to be really romantic.

However, there were some things that bothered me. Such as the fact that I was able to figure out who the “bad guy” was almost as soon as they introduced the person into the story. (But, in the very end there wa...more
Don't Look Back is a Fiction novel, with mystery, christian and romance. I loved the book and if you like any of the four i suggest you read it! I liked how the author leads you into the problems. The author bounces back and forth form killer to victim and to friend which is kinda crazy but I think it gets you wanting to read.

Jamie Cash is a survivor of a killer ,named the Hero, who abused her and almost beat her to death. Jamie wasn't supposed to survive but somehow did. Jamie is still recoveri...more
DON’T LOOK BACK, the second installment in the Woman of Justice series by Lynette Eason, is another riveting story that compels you to turn page after page.

Jamie Cash is a survivor. Twelve years ago, she was the victim of a psychopath who assaulted her, tortured her, and left her for dead. Strong willed and determined, Jamie has fought her way back from victim to success story. Now a forensic anthropologist, Jamie works with the medical examiner’s office to bring closure to cold cases, and speak...more

What a thrilling read! Lynette Eason is an amazing writer who kept me hooked into the story. The plot itself is brilliant; it mixes all the elements every good suspense novel should have. Who is the killer? Will he get Jamie this time? I suspected who the attacker was but it still really freaked me out when I was right!

I had a real connection with the protagonist, Jamie. It was exciting to read her own story after meeting her in the first book of this series-'Too close to home'. The author reve...more

Great book!

Great book!

Although I figured out who the "bad guy" was earlier on in the story, it held my interest until the end that had a surprise twist I didn't see coming. Enjoyed all the characters in the story & how they interacted with one another. Not real sure if the parents secret had enough detail of their past that put them to the current time period but it did open up for another book! Love how the sequels connect & really to find out what happens in book #3. Clean reading with...more
I do believe Eason took it up a notch in Book 2. The novel grabbed my interest from the beginning and I really was enjoying it. However, around halfway through there were a couple of things in the story that just seemed really unrealistic that bugged me. There were things said between the characters at times that I also found to be a little bit overkill. Still, I found the romance and relationship between our two main characters to flow well and be believable. The suspense was once again the hig...more
I really enjoyed this book. The suspense was intense and I loved that Connor & Sam, from the first book of this series, were right there in the middle of things. I really liked how Jamie was scared, but didn't let her fear rule her. She consistently leaned on God for strength & courage. It was nice to read a book with a sensible heroine. She didn't go off half cocked throwing herself in danger, but used common sense & listened to her sister, Conner and Dakota. She showed compassion a...more

First I have to say how much I enjoyed this story, right from the very first page I was hooked. Starting out at a crime scene with multiple human remains is sure to capture anyone's attention and it sure did catch mine. I really flew through this book just because I desperately wanted to know what happened next. The reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars is because I figured out who the "bad guy" was very early on. (SPOILER-ISH: highlight to read) The other characters were just so nice and likable th...more

Yet another terrifying, edge-of-your-seat suspense from Lynette Eason! She has quickly made a permanent spot for herself on my Top 10 "must read authors" list. I just can't seem to get enough! I don't know how I'm gonna survive until book #3, A Killer Among Us, releases in May 2011. *SIGH*

Don't Look Back is Jamie Cash's story. We first met Jamie in her sister Samantha's story, Too Close To Home. I have to tell you right now, Jamie's story is a LOT more graphic, and down-right sickening, imo. I'm...more

Do you ever read a book by an absolutely wonderful author and it feel utterly, fantastically real? I have....first with Lynette Eason's Too Close To Home and now with Don't Look Back. I love crime drama/romantic suspense, and the fact that Lynette Eason's are Christian ones, makes this (and book 1!) book that much better. Ms. Eason's words are gripping and her characters are loveable, and her action is instant, keeping me hooked until the end.

Don't Look Back picks up right where Too Close To Ho...more

I LOVED this book! It was a great suspense, which is a bit rare these days. Most of them involve a bad guy who isn't really that scary. You can't really find a strong reason to fear him - even though he's bad and doing horrible things - the character hasn't been built well enough to put much stock into his "badness".

On the contrary THIS book was terrifyingly suspenseful! Wow! I did not want to put this book down (and I'm in the middle of mid-terms, so that's a bit unfortunate). All of the charac...more
Book Two of the Women of Justice Series, finds us once again in the story of Jamie Cash. Jamie has started living life again outside of her home, where she hid out for years after being brutally raped and tortured and left for dead by a psychotic serial killer.

This story opens with two graves being found, Jamie is called in to examine as an anthropologist. She is horrified to find signs that these women were killed by the same man who tortured her. Is he back? Has "Hero" returned to finish what...more
Lynette Eason's novel about a forensic anthropologist has a very similar feel to my favorite television crime shows. The story is scary and a bit creepy—everything I like in a thriller. The missing element is the little details that male thriller writers like to stick in, like the model of the weapon and other little cop factlets. However, Eason's extensive research and attention to detail regarding skeletons and torture was plenty enough to keep me turning pages.

And that's the story line. Jamie...more

Lynette Eason in her new book, "Don't Look Back" Book Two in her Women Of Justice series published by Revell takes us back to Spartanburg, South Carolina.

The dictionary defines trauma as, "a disordered psychic or behavioral state resulting from severe mental or emotional stress or physical injury." Jamie Cash, twelve years before, had been victim number three of a serial killer who had kidnapped her and did a large variety of unspeakable acts against her. Jamie is the only one of his victims t...more
Lynette Eason has done it again! From the first few pages of this book, I was hooked and catapulted into the story. I love books in series' with returning characters, so getting to know Jamie and Dakota in the first book, plus, having Sam and Connor present in this one, made this even better for me. Throw in a serial killer, suspense that is palpable and a growing romance and you've got a hit!

Similar to the first book in this series, I liked how the bad guy was someone close to the main characte...more

"Don’t Look Back" by Lynette Eason is a marvelous Christian romance suspense novel. Jaimie, the main character, is an anthropologist. Her job was to put bones back together to find some way of identifying a person. Twelve years ago, she had been abducted, raped, tortured, and almost killed by a serial killer but got away. Now, she discovers that he is back and coming after her again! Naturally, she has a lot of issues that prevent her from wanting to be romantically involved. Dakota, the FBI age...more

Lynette Eason’s books are known for “suspense with a twist” and she delivers once again in her newest book, Don’t Look Back. Follow up to Book One, Too Close To Home, this story continues with Jamie Cash who has overcome being kidnapped at eighteen while walking home from a party. Although she survived the brutal attack and being held as the prisoner of a psychopath, she’s still jumpy and nervous. She has good reason to be – her attacker is still on the loose.

Attempting to rebuild her life and m...more

This is book two of the Women of Justice series. In Lynette Eason’s first book in this series we learn a little about Jamie, but with Don’t Look Back we find out Jamie’s whole story. Jamie is a forensic anthropologist and at the beginning of the book she has to examine two sets of bones from unmarked graves. She find signs that these women were killed by the same man who tortured her 12 years ago. Jamie is the only surviving victim of "the Hero", a serial killer who tortures his victims to rescu...more

Don’t Look Back is my first read with this author. The novel is the second book of the Women of Justice series. Is it Chick Lit totally? I think not. Here is the synopsis from the back cover: “Twelve years ago, forensic anthropologist Jamie Cash survived a brutal kidnapping. After years of therapy, she has made a life for herself- though one that is haunted by memories of her terrifying past. She finally lets herself believe that she can have a close relationship with a man, when signs start app...more

Review on my blog (to be posted 2/27):

Don't Look Back was fantastic! I enjoyed it even more than book one, Too Close To Home, which I loved! The suspense was great and I found a lot of scenes very intense... I also got creeped out a little by things the killer did/said.

I loved getting to know Dakota and Jamie more. After having been introduced to them in Too Close To Home, I could hardly wait to re...more
Don't look Back by Lynette Eason was an edge of your seat thrill ride from beginning to end! A book filled with suspense, romance and a chilling storyline that grabs you and wont let go!

Jamie Cash was the only person to survive the kidnapping and torture of the "Hero" a serial killer that she escaped from twelve years ago, with extensive therapy she is finally getting her life back on track, but when the "Hero" returns to finish the job he started, can FBI agent Dakota Richard protect her from t...more
Oh. My. Goodness. Talk about a wild ride! Breathless does not even begin to describe this book!

I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I started DON’T LOOK BACK, I certainly did not expect to be up late and awake early, hungry for the next turn and high stakes drama. This has to be hands down the fastest paced, nerve wracking and can’t-put-it-down suspense book I think I have ever read.

Jamie Cash is being stalked. What ensues is not a story for the faint of heart. I must admit I was a bit surp...more
DON'T LOOK BACK by Lynnette Eason is an awesome inspiration romantic suspense set in modern day Spartansburg, South Carolina. It is the second in the Women of Justice series but can be read as a stand alone. The first in this series was Too Close To Home. It is well written with details,depth, turns, and twists. First let me say what a roller coaster, thrill of a ride this story is. Warning: This is not for the faint of heart. It has horrific crime scenes, terror, abuse, a stalker, a serial kill...more
Ugggggghhhhhh, Ahhhhhhh, Owwwwww. That is the sound of my literary soul dying in agony as I forced myself through page after page of this utter disaster of a book. The first problem was the odd morality of the book. This is Christian fiction, which in this case means that swearing and anything more than a chaste kiss is not acceptable, but you can add as much violence and gore as you want. Serial killer violence, no less. Even more offensive was the writer's handling of rape, which was insensiti...more

This was an excellent follow-up to Too Close to Home. Whie a stand-alone story, it does make reference to people in the first book. The second in the Women of Justice series, it features Jamie, a forensic anthropologist who survived a terrible kidnapping and near death 12 years previously. Now the killer is back and wants to finish the job.

Jamie has two sets of bones to put together and identify and while doing this, realizes that they bear terrifying similarities to her injuries. A serial kill...more
This book had a very similar format to the first Women of Justice novel. The main character of this book, Jamie, is the sister to the main character of the last book. Jamie has a dark past of being abducted by a serial killer and getting away. Now, her killer is back to finish the job. This book takes us on a thrilling journey of searching for the person who is threatening Jamie. And, as expected, a little bit of romance is thrown in as well.

So far, I am enjoying this series and I will continue...more
Lynette Eason has a gift for suspense/thrillers with depth. I liked the first book in this series with Samantha in the driver's seat and then to see that she was bringing Samantha's sister, Jamie, back to star in this book - I was excited. I wasn't disappointed either! Jamie makes a great leading lady with her past history coming back to haunt her, literally. The man who tried to kill her 12 years ago is back to finish off the job when he finds out that she is the one that got away. I figured ou...more
