Summary

Elite Guardians bodyguard Haley Callaghan may be in South Carolina, but when a photo leads investigators in West Ireland to open a twenty-five-year-old cold case, her life is suddenly in danger. Haley knows how to take care of herself; after all, she's made a career out of taking care of others. But after an uncomfortably close call, Detective Steven Rothwell takes it upon himself to stay with her--and the young client she has taken under her wing. A protector at heart, he's not about to let Haley fight this battle alone.

In a sweeping plot that takes them into long-buried memories--and the depths of the heart--Haley and Steven will have to solve the mystery of Haley's past while dodging bullets, bombs, and bad guys who just won't quit.

Lynette Eason has done it yet again! I have read and enjoyed all of her books to date and Chasing Secrets was no exception! I have been waiting for Haley's story ever since first meeting her in Always Watching and I was absolutely fascinated with her story from the first page on! Haley and Steven were both such great characters, plus I absolutely loved that Haley has horses (just like me!)

I am a big fan of back story so not only was I thrilled to finally get Haley's, hers as well as Steven's added so much depth and richness to the story! The suspense in this one was oh, so good, just as in all of Lynette's books!

I seriously can't begin to describe the total awesomeness that is this book, it was everything I had hoped for and more!

I think Without Warning is still my personal favorite of the Elite Guardians series, but Chasing Secrets is very, very close to being tied with Without Warning as my favorite!

I absolutely loved every minute that I spent reading Chasing Secrets, these are characters that I know I will find myself thinking about for a long time!

I highly recommend Chasing Secrets (grab yourself a copy and read it ASAP, you won't be sorry you did!)

I cannot wait to read Lynette's next release!

Haley Callaghan is a body guard as well as the founder of a local teen center that helps underprivileged kids stay off the streets and out of trouble. After finishing her last case, she heads for home only to realize she is being followed again. She soon discovers that a detective from Ireland has come to the States looking for her with an incredible story. She isn’t sure she believes what he tells her, but she also can’t ignore that it could be true. She also undertakes the protection of a poor family in a bad section of town when she is almost the victim of a mugging.

Haley also meets her friend Quinn’s new partner who has transferred from Chicago. Steve Rothman has been called home by his mother to help care for his dying father. Steve has avoided home as much as possible as the memories of the murder of his 12-year-old brother continue to plague him. He meets Haley and is fascinated by her spirit and grit. He can’t seem to stop her from invading his thoughts. He wants to get to know her better, but knows this isn’t the right time to get involved in a relationship. Tell that to his heart! He feels protective toward Haley even though he knows she can take care of herself as she is the victim of two drive-by shootings in one day and a death threat. Could these attempts on her life be connected to the detective from Ireland or are they related to her new client?

What I like about Ms. Eason’s books is they always have the element of faith woven into them; this book is no different. The characters not only talk about their faith, but they live it. It isn’t something they participate in on Sunday and then leave it at the door on the way out of church. I like the suspense and mystery too. The characters are easy to get to know and get involved with their lives. I always look forward to reading one of her stories because I get a good mystery and romance each and every time! I’m looking forward to her new series titled Blue Justice as I know there will be plenty of action and suspense.

Lynette Eason knows exactly what the readers of romantic suspense want. If they are anything like me, then they want non-stop action with someone's life in danger. I have devoured Always Watching, Without Warning, and Moving Target, so I can't wait to see what Eason had in store for me in Chasing Secrets. I recommend Eason's books all the time to fellow readers who claim to want tons of suspense with a hint of romance. Eason has not disappointed me yet.

As an accomplished writer, I'm sure that Eason will know how to write into deep point of view without distracting me from the story. The setting comes to life and keeps me anchored in the story without any question or pulling out to watch Eason explain things for me. I empathized with the characters as they struggled with their identity and moving on from the past. The character of Haley is a dynamic character who places children first in her life. She loves them and wants to help improve their lives, which is shown in the center she runs and how much time she invests in their individual lives. I enjoyed watching Haley's transformation story as she went through the story. As for Steven, he is a wonderful parallel to Haley and compliments her and her need to overcome the mysteries of her past. Steven also changes by learning to forgive and letting go of some of his past anger issues.

The plot is original and unpredictable. Eason is a master at allowing me to not to figure out who the villain is before the end of the novel. When she introduced the bad guy, I was shocked. It was not who I thought it was. Good job, Eason! I loved being proven wrong . . . or right when reading a suspense.

The spiritual element of forgiveness and letting go off the past affected by main characters, and I'm glad that Eason allowed this change to happen naturally, not force it on the characters. I don't believe some readers will be turned off by the spiritually of the story; it was not the driving force of the plot, just there to deepened the characters.

Overall, Lynette Eason's Chasing Secrets is a fabulous conclusion to her Elite Guardians' series, and I enjoyed spending time with all four heroines and loved watching them change and mature as the series deepened. I highly recommend Chasing Secrets for fans of Lynette Eason's other books or romantic suspense in general. A great read!

Girls who kick butt have been all the rage for a while now, and I will admit that this isn't the first novel that I've reviewed here featuring a beautiful, law enforcing woman. But this book proves to be in a class of its own when we find out that Haley Callaghan, a member of the all-female Elite Guardians agency, might be the lone survivor of a massacre 25 years prior. If Haley is Aileen Burke, then she is the heiress of Rock Moran Castle in Ireland and stands to inherit a fortune.

When Haley is off duty from her bodyguard gig, she mentors troubled teens at a center she runs on the rough side of town. It seems that as soon as she tries to help a new kid who crosses her path, the bullets start flying. Haley thinks the neighborhood thug is behind the attempts on her life, but we know that someone has been tailing her for some time and is probably trying to figure out her true identity.

Lucky for Haley, she is friends with local law enforcement who have her back. Steven, the new guy on the town's police force, especially has his eye on her. Steven grew up in the area but hadn't lived there for years. Eason shares what memories haunt Steven gradually as she also allows Haley to remember snippets of her escape from a violent demise. As Haley tries to help heal Steven of his past, Steven tries to prevent Haley's past from stealing her future.

I have to stop here because I don't want to ruin the end. I can usually guess who the bad guy is, but I was wrong on this one. Drop me a comment if you guessed right. This book was all kinds of suspenseful and I plan on reading the rest of the Elite Guardians books.

A very good read with good characters. It was a bit slow in places.
