The St. John family has each other’s backs in book 3 of Lynette Eason’s Blue Justice series.
About the Book
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 let the detective who saved her life in on a few pertinent facts about why she was being attacked, there are some things you just don’t share with a stranger. Little does she suspect that the secret she is keeping just might get them both killed.
Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason sends readers on a race for the truth in this heart-stopping story of risk, regret, and redemption.

In My Opinion
For those who have been following the St. John siblings in Lynette Eason’s Blue Justice series, it’s Brady’s turn. This time, he falls into his situation while on a much needed vacation.
As usual, Eason’s main focus is on the investigation with a few romantic moments in the mix. I appreciated Emily’s strong faith set against Brady’s doubt and questions. Both characters are easy to like and connect with.
There is a lot happening in this one. The book even opens with a different character than Emily or Brady, and at times, there are almost too many bad guys at cross-purposes. Add to that the St. John brood, some dive team members (fans of Lynn H. Blackburn’s Dive Team Investigations series will recognize a few friends), and readers who are new to this series are apt to find themselves a bit lost from time to time.
Thankfully, I’ve read the other Blue Justice Books (as well as the Blackburn’s books), so keeping track of most of the characters wasn’t a huge issue. And while this was an enjoyable, entertaining read, it wasn’t my favorite in the series. But that’s okay because there are two more single St. John brothers!
