Detective James Holton has been honorably discharged from the Army Criminal Investigation Division due to wounds sustained when an IED blew up near him. Now with the Lake City Police Department, he’s rooming with this good buddy and partner, Cole, while he figures out his family dynamics.
Physician Assistant Lainie Jackson is eighteen months out from an attempted murder perpetrated by her ex, which ended when she managed to grab the weapon and shoot him. When he appears to have survived and is back to finish the job he started, Lainie insists it’s not possible. But someone keeps trying to kill her, and she keeps seeing his face.
Together, Lainie and James must work together to find out who, exactly, is after her and why he wants her dead. And failure is not an option.
Thank you to NetGalley and to Libro.fm for the ARC and ALC of Double Take by Lynette Eason. All opinions are my own.
Before reading this book, I had heard of Lynette Eason but had never read any of her books, but now I would love to read more.
I don’t typically read thrillers, but the premise that included a romance and the fact that the author writes Christian fiction intrigued me enough to give it a try.
I really ended up enjoying this book so much that I listened to the whole book in one day.
It’s the kind of story that you just can’t put down because you want to know what happens next. I also couldn’t guess the mystery aspect at all, so the reveal at the end was great.
The faith elements really added to the story, and I found them to be realistic and relatable.
The audiobook was excellent, and I definitely recommend it if you like audiobooks.
Overall, I would recommend this book if you’re looking for a fast-paced book with an unpredictable plot, lovable characters, and a sweet romance.
