Thriller of a Ride ~ No One to Trust by Lynette Eason ~ Review

Though not the usual “murder mystery”, “No One to Trust” took the reader on a fast-paced race to keep our hero and heroine safe.
          
  I think these characters become instantly likeable thrust into the situation that they are in: running for their lives. The action kept a good handle on the tension as our characters raced from the bad guys and we learned who was behind all the deception. I did like that the reader saw who was “behind the gun”, but I certainly held my breath a time or two, sure that the villain was lying in wait to take out our characters.
        
    I loved that our hero and heroine are already married at the start of the book. They already know they love each other, it’s building back up the trust that has been torn down. Summer’s distrust of her husband due to his lies are certainly understandable, but I didn’t feel I got as much of a glimpse into her backstory as I wanted to. It’s hard to weave all those kind of pieces into a story like this, but being a reader who really likes to dig into the mind of a character, I felt it was a bit shallow.
         
   The book overall is a quick read and a fast paced one. I’m certainly glad I requested it to review and look forward to what the second book in the series might bring.
           
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

More about the novel...

Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover story?

The search for her husband--and answers--takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn't know who to believe.

  2. It's strange to come to the realization that I've read few books with married couples in them. lol But this sounds like a heart-racing read. Thanks for the thorough review. This is going on my TBR list.

    1. I know, right?? But it's a good angle and one I appreciated. It didn't divert as much energy from the suspense pace of the book. I always have a problem with romantic suspense that gives too much or not enough attention to either plot. :)
