Code Of Valor - Book Review

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
My dear friends,
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Season
and I trust your New Year is off to a beautiful start.
I am still on my blogging break,
but I have a few book reviews to share with you
in the next week.
I look forward to returning to my blog
and hearing about your holiday festivities.
Until then,
know that you are thought of!
Love and hugs!


Book Review
What Detective Brady St. John really needs 
is a relaxing vacation. 
Unfortunately, just as the sun is setting 
on his second day at a friend's cabin on Lake Henley, 
he hears a scream and races to rescue a woman from her would-be killer. 
When the killer escapes only to return to finish the job, 
Brady vows to utilize all of his many resources to keep her safe 
and catch those who would see her dead.

Financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain
doesn't trust many people.
And even though she's trying to cooperate
with the detective who saved her life,
there are some things she doesn't know-
and some things you just don't share with a stranger.
Little does she suspect that what she doesn't know
just might get them both killed.


My Thoughts
Woooeee, Lynette Eason does not hold back
in Code of Valor.
This book is a real page-turner
and when I say page-turner, I mean it.
From the very first line in the book
to the last word of the story,
the reader will be spellbound by Code of Valor.
Lynette Eason has been one of my favorite authors
for many years and the story of Brady and Emily
is just another reason to admire her work.
This book is packed with all of the good stuff. . .
suspense
mystery
intrigue
action
forgiveness
compassion
hope
second chances
love.

Emily is quite the lady.
She is someone who allowed the Lord to pull her up 
from the deepest, darkest pit and live a life full of hope.
As I read further into the book
I couldn't help but admire her tenacity and outlook on life.
She's a gem and if you read this book
I think you'll enjoy her unique character.

Brady is a true gentleman with honorable intentions 
and a desire to protect those he cares about.
What can I say. . .
the reader will like him immediately.

While Code of Valor is the book three in the Blue Justice series,
it could be read as a stand alone.
If you would like to get to know the St. John family
than start from book one because this series is about them.
But if you just can't wait and want an amazing book to read now
than start with Code of Valor.
You'll not be disappointed with Lynette Eason
and her skill for writing a phenomenal story.

Also, I would personally recommend this book 
for an older audience such as 18-years and older.

** I was given a free copy of this book from Revell Publishers for an honest review.
All thoughts are my own. No other compensation was received. 
Thank you Revell! **

Oooh,thanks for the tip! I love crime/mysteries but sometimes they are just too dark, too gory, too sexed up. I will certainly look into these.

Lynette Eason is always a very good read, I find.

Thank you for this exciting review, Stephanie. I LOVE Lynette Eason's books and this series (I've only read the first book) is to-die-for suspenseful!!! I absolutely was enthralled with book one. I am on the waiting list at the library for this third book and a friend is sending me the second one. I can't wait!!!
Happy Happy New Year!

This sounds like a really intriguing book, and when you highly recommend a book, I take notice, I've written her name down, as I need a couple of good books to read, as winter gray days are here :) And I need a good excuse to drink another cup of tea, ha! Hope you are enjoying your blogging break, I just posted today, my first post of the new year. Trust all is well with you sweet friend, blessings and hugs!
