I had the hardest time putting this book down!  When my hubby forced me to go to bed, I just laid in bed thinking about what I’d read and what could happen next.  Eason kept my interest the entire time, and I couldn’t wait to find out what unexpected twist was going to shock me next.  Moving Target is the third book in the Elite Guardians series.  This series is based on a talented group of women that protect not only those around them, but also each other.  I have read both previous books and loved them.  Don’t worry if you haven’t read them yet, as you don’t need to in order to enjoy this story.  This book focuses on Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe as they try to catch a serial killer.

 

Maddy and Quinn have a history and have spend a lot of time around each other.  Life hasn’t been easy on either of them lately, and they are both ready for some happiness.  Maddy believes that Quinn is the man for her, but he’s got to realize it for himself.  When neither of them shows up for his birthday party, their friends begin to get worried.  It isn’t like them to not answer texts or calls, and before long their friends realize they have both vanished.  Putting their skills to work they all immediately begin to search for answers.  Who could be behind their disappearance?  And where are they?

 

When Maddy and Quinn wake up they both realize something has gone terribly wrong.  They are trapped in a room, and don’t even know how long they were out of it.  One thing they quickly find out is that whoever has them doesn’t intend for them to live much longer.  Being the live prey in this hunter’s game is terrifying, and danger seems to be around every corner.  Lucky for them, Maddy and Quinn are a great team, and aren’t going to make this easy for the hunter.  Can they escape with their lives and figure out who’s after them?  Or will the truth come to light when it’s too late?

 

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Romantic Suspense.  The characters were a lot of fun to get to know, and I found I could relate to many of their struggles.  I have loved every book I have read by Lynette Eason, so I’m not surprised I really enjoyed this one too.  I was kept hostage turning pages, and nervous about what was to come next.  If you love edge of your seat, nail biting suspense, this book would be great for you.  I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions expressed are completely my own.

This is the second book in the Amish Beginnings Series. I have not read the first book, but don’t feel it is necessary in order to enjoy this one. That being said, I wouldn’t mind reading it and know I would enjoy seeing Anna and Bairn earlier in their relationship. The Newcomer follows Anna and her people as they try to start a life in the New World. Getting to Pennsylvania wasn’t easy, and they can only hope that starting over will be less difficult. Little do they know their troubles are far from over.

Anna was finally becoming excited about starting her life in the new world. She can’t wait to get to their future home and get started before it gets cold. Going to a new place brings all sorts of new fears and many of the people are letting their imagination get the best of them. When Bairn doesn’t accompany them, Anna is left feeling abandoned. But their group is joined my a newcomer they all can’t help but be drawn to him. He is an optimist, and is so excited about their journey and their new land. Anna misses Bairn, and can’t help but wonder if he will ever return to her. The newcomer isn’t shy about his interest in Anna, and she begins to wonder just what the rest of her life is going to look like. Will her first love return, or will their adventure bring other new things with it?

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction. My attention was kept the entire time, and I had no way of guessing what was going to happen next. I found it interesting learning about some of the things people had to go through when coming to a new country. I liked that it showed a glimpse of some of the first Amish settlers, and where they started when building a new life. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
