by Lynette Eason

Deadly Reunions Book 1


As a member of the North Cascades Smokejumpers, Alexia Allen always takes care of the equipment that keeps her safe. So when she nearly dies in a fire due to equipment failure, she knows something is up. Ordered to take time off while the investigation continues, Alexia makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother’s home and attend her high school reunion. Yet trouble seems to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she’s involved with murder, arson–and a handsome detective. But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she strives to remember and forgive her family history, she must also decide if the secret she’s been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light. Chock-full of the suspense and romantic tension readers have come to expect from Lynette Eason, “When the Smoke Clears” is the explosive first book in the Deadly Reunions series.
Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥
When the Smoke Clears is the first in a series called Deadly Reunions. This novel doesn’t let you breath. It’s nonstop action from the time Alexia, a firefighter fighting her own personal fires, is almost overcome in a fire where she saves the life of a child. Instead of a medal, she receives a suspension because of a mysterious default with her equipment. The intrigue doesn’t stop there. When she arrives home to visit her sick mother and figure out her next move, she walks in on a murder and the police suspect her. Soon Alexia realizes the murderer is after her, but she has no idea why. This murder mystery has everything from suspense to romance and beyond with a strong woman as the protagonist. Alexia’s not going to just lie down and die. She’s determined to find out what’s going on and to stop the culprit while she battles her own demons. Don’t start this book if you plan on sleeping before you finish it.
