Oath Of Honor - Book Review

Police officer Isabelle St. John loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. 
With three brothers and two sisters, 
she's never without someone to hang out with--or fight with. 
And she knows they'll be there for her when things get tough. 
Like when her partner is murdered and she barely escapes with her own life.

Determined to discover exactly what happened, 
Izzy's investigation sends her headfirst into a criminal organization, 
possibly with cops on the payroll--including someone from her own family. 
With her dead partner's handsome homicide detective brother Ryan
 shadowing her every move, Izzy's head is spinning. 
How can she secure justice for her partner 
when doing so could mean sending someone she loves to prison? 
And how will she guard her heart when the man she's had a secret crush on for years 
won't leave her side?

With her signature fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, 
Lynette Eason invites readers into a captivating new series 
where justice is a family affair.




My Thoughts
Lynette Eason has been a favorite author of mine
since the very first book I read by her,
and with her extraordinary writing skills 
she remains at the top of my list of favorite authors.
Lynette has a way with words
and every time she writes those words down on paper
she weaves an incredible story that is rich in content.
Her stories leave you satisfied,
yet also have a way of making you wish the story could go on. . .
she's just that good.

Oath of Honor is another winner
and the beginning of a series you won't want to miss
especially if you love action, suspense, romance, and faith.
As Izzy and Ryan race against the clock 
to find the man who shot their beloved friend and brother
they are thrown into something much bigger and more dangerous 
than they could have possibly imagined.
You'll need to hang on to your seats, my friends, 
because this story will take you on a wild ride
and  it will have you questioning everything. . . 
who did what,
which character can be trusted,
and will a family that was always respected 
be brought down by lies and dishonesty.

My only complaint, 
a very trivial one and one that has no impact on the story itself,
was the texting throughout the book.
Now I know we live in a day and age where everyone texts,
but I did not enjoy reading the text messages sent between the characters.
The reason:
I truly dislike the abbreviations, acronyms, and poor spelling.
A silly complaint, I know, and in all reality it's one that can be swept under the rug
because it's nothing in comparison to the greatness of this story.

Oath of Honor sounds like an exciting book, Stephanie, although the texting would put me off, too.

I will be relying on you and one other blogger for GOOD and clean books to read. I give up on the secular offerings, many are very good but have jumped on the bandwagon of letting the sex sell their audience on buying. I'm through. I'm now on my way to Amazon, Thank you.
Oh yeah, are you having the tea cup exchange this year?

I doubt I'd like the 'texting' part of it either - far too annoying to have to decipher the short forms and seeming misspellings, all of which drive me nuts. We're raising an entire generation of people who haven't a clue how to spell.

I'm with you on the texting part ... it would annoy me too.

All the best Jan

Also sounds like a good one to try. Not typically my type of book but I trust your reviews -- no pressure there, right??

Oh my, I don't have a lot of time for reading lately, but I must buy this book now. Historical christian novels are my favorite after the Bible. Thank you for the honest review, and I agree, no need for unnecessary descriptions in books. I feel they degrade the stories and so drop those books like ton weights. ;)
Have a lovely weekend!
Toni
