Crossfire is Book #2 in the Extreme Measures Series by award winning author Lynette Eason. It is a contemporary, mystery, suspense, Christian, romance fiction that is just riveting. Action begins on page one and captured my attention immediately.
Author Eason is a talented storyteller. She is masterful in the art of mystery and suspense. As I read I was certain I had something figured out only to have a twist prove me wrong. Her characters are realistic and believable. Friends are tried and true while bad guys are vicious villains. I was so engrossed in the characters and story that I did not want to stop reading this page turning book.
This is the story of special agent Julianna Jameson, a top-notch negotiator, and former Army Ranger sniper Clay Fox. She gets called in to negotiate a courtroom hostage situation. Clay’s sister, Reese, is one of the hostage.
There are so many life and spiritual lessons woven into this captivating story. Good verses evil, darkness verses light, hope, trust, faith, family, love, revenge, and redemption are all tackled in this story. It is a intense story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The faith element of healing past mistakes and accepting God’s forgiveness was a breath of fresh air. The way the characters felt after receiving God’s forgiveness was beautiful. They illustrated that they could begin again without the weight of the world and past mistakes on their shoulders. It was so inspiring. I was encouraged by the way they asked God for help in the small and big details of their lives.
I highly recommend this amazing, intense book to all readers! It’s so intriguing that you will not want to put it down until the end. It gets a 5 star rating from me. A copy was provided by the publisher, but these are my honest words.
