Oath of Honor (Blue Justice) by Lynette Eason *book review*

Oath of Honor (Blue Justice) by Lynette Eason

**Updated on 1/10/18 to include book giveaway**

This book was released yesterday and is book 1 to a brand new series called “Blue Justice”. If you haven’t read any books by this author you are definitely missing out!

Oh my gosh, this book was so so good!! Lots of action, suspense, drama and some romance. This story introduces Isabelle’s brothers and sister (6 total kids) which is a perfect way to start off this new series. I also like that it was clean fiction with some christian elements.

I felt this story was very well written and I was on the edge of my seat several times riveted to the story and all of the characters. I wasn’t sure how it was going to end and who the bad guys were since there were several unexpected twists. I can’t wait to read more books in this series!

I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.

About the Book
Police officer Isabelle St. John loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. With three brothers and two sisters, she’s never without someone to hang out with–or fight with. And she knows they’ll be there for her when things get tough. Like when her partner is murdered and she barely escapes with her own life.

Determined to discover exactly what happened, Izzy’s investigation sends her headfirst into a criminal organization, possibly with cops on the payroll–including someone from her own family. With her dead partner’s handsome homicide detective brother Ryan shadowing her every move, Izzy’s head is spinning. How can she secure justice for her partner when doing so could mean sending someone she loves to prison? And how will she guard her heart when the man she’s had a secret crush on for years won’t leave her side?

With her signature fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, Lynette Eason invites readers into a captivating new series where justice is a family affair.

Saving Shadow (The Beckett Files, Book 1) by Laura Beers

Saving Shadow (The Beckett Files, Book 1) by Laura Beers

This regency spy romance is set in England during the early 1800s. Lady Elizabeth is a fantastic character and I really enjoyed reading this thrilling story and her interactions as a spy. Along with Benedict and Jonathan-this trio sets out to find the men responsible for the kidnapping and slavery of several local women. I loved their whit and banter back and forth and how well all three of them worked together. It was heartbreaking to read about Eliza’s emotional struggles with trying to protect helpless women while having to kill ruthless men in the process. Knowing she is helping, yet taking a person’s life was starting to really affect her.

I also liked some of the side characters in the book like Mr. Larson, Uncle Charles and Martha. All of them had an important role in sharping Lady Elizabeth into the spy and wonderful woman she was. They also tried to help her see how important it is to have faith and love in someone, despite all the evil and wrong in the world.

I truly can’t say enough about this book! It had a good ending and definitely left an opening for the author to write more books in this series. Good steady plot with lots of drama and some clean romance.

I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Born with a perfect memory, Lady Elizabeth Beckett has become one of the world’s most notorious spies, despite being the daughter of a duke. She is shielded only by her code name: Shadow. When young ladies of High Society begin disappearing from London, Eliza has no doubt who is orchestrating these crimes; a heinous man she has been investigating for years. Vowing to save them before they are sold to the highest bidder, she must risk everything to stop him.

Lord Sinclair was perfectly content being the second son of a marquess, but when his brother is murdered, he is thrust into a position he has not been prepared for and does not desire. As an agent for the Crown, he is expected to retire now that he is the heir, but he’s been granted special permission for one more mission… to obtain justice for his murdered brother.

Used to keeping secrets, Lady Eliza and Lord Sinclair must learn to open up to each other when they are assigned as partners to bring down the same ruthless man and his brutal empire of abduction and slavery. As Eliza’s tainted past becomes too much for her to bear alone, can she learn to trust her new partner with her secrets, her life, and possibly her heart?

Imperfect Justice (Hidden Justice series) by Cara C. Putman

Imperfect Justice (Hidden Justice #2) by Cara C. Putman

This is book 2 in the Hidden Justice series but they can be read as stand alone books. I couldn’t put this book down!! The story was very intriguing, thrilling, and kept me interested from the first to last chapter.

I liked the christian aspect through out this book as well-that attorney Emilie kept God in her life asking him for guidance and protection. It was sad to read about all the domestic abuse and home violence that these women had to face on a regular basis. I could sympathize the need for Emilie to help them but also how emotionally draining and hard her job was on a daily basis.

I can’t wait to read book 3 in this series when it is released next year. I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.

About the book:
The police say the woman was a murderer. Emilie Wesley knows they can’t be talking about her client . . . can they?
To the world it seems obvious: Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story: Kaylene would never hurt anyone and was looking for a way out of a controlling, abusive relationship. Her death shakes Emilie’s belief that she can make a difference for women in violent marriages. Self-doubt plagues her as she struggles to continue her work in the wake of the tragedy.
Reid Billings thought he knew his sister-right up until he learned how she died. He discovers a letter from Kaylene begging him to fight for custody of her daughters if anything should happen to her. No attorney in her right mind would support an uncle instead of the father in a custody case, but Kaylene’s letter claims Emilie Wesley will help him.
Thrown together in a race to save Kaylene’s surviving daughter, Emily and Reid pursue the constantly evasive truth. If they can hang on to hope together, can they save a young girl-and find a future for themselves in the process?
