Danielle Harding and her son Simon face a serious problem - Kurt, an abusive husband and father. After finally working up the courage to leave, Danielle discovers that her husband has died. Initially, Danielle thinks it's an answer to her prayers for deliverance, but instead she finds the trouble has just started.
In order to protect her son, Danielle turns to Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge for help. Will he be able to find them a safe house while dealing with his own personal issues? Will Danielle and Simon finally be able to breathe easy, knowing they are safe? Or will Kurt's last wishes haunt his family long after he's gone.
I had the chance to read the first book in this series, No One To Trust, and enjoyed this second installment. Eason is great at keeping you guessing all the way to the end! I will say, however, that some parts did feel a little slow in the middle and I found myself wishing there had been a little bit more chemistry between Adam and Danielle.
That said, this was a great, thrilling read that will surprise you over and over again. A definite recommendation to those who like romantic suspense!

- A first-rate thrilling suspense novel! by J. Augustine on 9/15/2014
Nowhere To Turn is a story will keep you guessing, just when you think you have it all figured out another twist comes along.
I really enjoyed the twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat and I finished the book in pretty short order. I had a lazy weekend and Nowhere To Turn was the perfect place to turn to for an exciting and thrilling read. Even the cover is delightfully mysterious and does its job well by enticing the reader to open the pages.
Lynette Eason not only knows her craft well, but she is also a master at her genre. I love suspense/mystery, it really is my favorite genre, and over the years I've read some great suspense books and some that were not so great. Lynette Eason was easily one of the best authors I have read, and if Nowhere To Turn is true example of her work than I can be assured that her other books will definitely be good.
The only bad, or rather sad, thing is that I have to wait a WHOLE YEAR to read book 3! I guess I will just have to console myself and read some of Lynette Eason's other books in the meantime.
Don't miss Nowhere To Turn, book 2 in Lynette Eason's exciting Hidden Identity series!

- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 9/15/2014
The opening scenes of this book were so intense that I think I held my breath through chapter four. Danielle Harding is an abused wife. She longs to flee from her husband, but he has threatened to kill their son if she tries again. Just when all hope of ever leading a normal life is lost she gets news that her husband has died. Finally, the ability to live life without the threat of violence. But just when she thought it was safe she begins to feel threatened by her brother-in-law Stuart. He is determined to make her his.
Danielle's husband Kurt and his brother Stuart are both FBI agents so turning to law enforcement for help isn't an option. She knows from experience that you never fully know who you can trust. What she does know is that if she doesn't find help fast she and her son are in big trouble.
In a desperate attempt to free herself and her son she contacts Operation Refuge. Adam Buchanan and his group seems to be her only chance at a normal life. They help her and Simon with new looks and identities and will effectively make them disappear so they can start a new life. She feels safe and protected in their presence until their security measures are mysteriously breached. The lengths they go to to keep Danielle and her son Simon safe are part of what makes this story so fast-paced. The plot twists and underlying currents are sure to keep you reading as fast as you can. Once again you will be left wondering what else could possibly happen up until the very end.
This second book in the Hidden Identity series is every bit as adrenaline pumping suspense as No One To Trust. The series has connecting characters from the first book, but the storyline of this book is completely separate from the first. If you do plan on reading the whole series I would suggest you read it in order so little details don't giveaway the overall plot. But if you want to just jump in and read this second book without the first you will be completely fine in doing so.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
- seriously compelling read by Vera on 9/12/2014
Expecting a good, suspense filled read, Nowhere to Turn absolutely did not disappoint. It seems today that the news is filled with the sad story of abusive relationships - men abusing women, abuse of children - deadly and devastating relationships. This story is compellingly frightening. After years of captive abuse by her husband, Dani is now free from it because he has died. But this story goes on and on with more scary episodes that the normal person needs to read about.
Hopefully, this is all fiction, but sad-to-say often fiction is a re-telling of hard biting truth. Dani literally goes all around trying to escape her troubles. She and her son Simon are not safe. To escape this continuing problem, she seeks help from a refuge group. While they are professionals and are helping to protect her, somehow, someway her pursuers are just one step behind her - no matter where she goes.
Lynette Eason's series of suspense novels, Hidden Identity, is proving to be entertaining and seriously compelling reads. I suggest you reading them all.

- Needs Editing by Sally on 9/8/2014
After the death of her husband, who had abused her, Dani Harding, and her son, Simon have people trying to kill them. So they go into hiding. Unfortunately, no place remains safe for long. This Christian fiction thriller keeps the pace moving. It's difficult to tell just who the bad guys are as even the abusive husband was FBI.
I've read other books by the author and enjoyed them; unfortunately, I was able to easily figure out the twists and turns in this tale.
In addition, the novel needs more careful editing. There are many sentence fragments and even some misspelled words. One page has Simon eleven-years-old and another states that he is twelve with no mention of a birthday. Errors like these prevent me from enjoying an otherwise good tale.
Thank you to Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group for my copy.
- a clean mystery equally interesting to men and women by Claudia on 9/3/2014
Nowhere to Turn by Lynette Eason – A Book Review
My husband is used to my telling him about the characters and events in the books I’m reading just like I relay information about our friends and relatives. However, while I was reading Nowhere to Turn he got used to my starting to tell him something only to end with, “No, I can’t tell you that. You are going to want to read this one yourself!” I have seen several requests among the avid reader group I belong to on Facebook asking for suggestions for Christian fiction that men would enjoy. Lynette Eason has definitely written a mystery tale that is not gender specific.
Nowhere to Turn is the second book in the Hidden Identity series. I reviewed the first, No One to Trust, on my blog on January 5, 2014. While Summer and David were indeed in this second book, they played minor roles. Adam Buchanan, a member of Operation Refuge, founded by Summer and David and supported by the governor, steps to the forefront in this story. While dealing with his own family issues spurred on by the circumstances of his uncle’s death, Adam puts the crisis in Danielle Harding’s life before his own concerns. The crisis in Danielle’s life places everyone around her in mortal danger, especially those sworn to protect her and her son.
Danielle and Simon cling to one another in a life that has been dictated by betrayal. Everywhere they turn someone they should have been able to rely on turns on them. Out of desperation they turn to Operation Refuge, forcing their heightened sense of distrust aside because they had nowhere else to turn. In spite of Adam Buchanan’s promise of protection, danger seems to follow them everywhere they go. Someone is able to track their every move, but how? Until that mystery can be solved Danielle and Simon will never be safe from their hidden enemy or enemies. Threats seem to be coming from multiple directions, but could they all be tied together somehow?
Nowhere to Turn has something for most every reader: mystery, intrigue, romance, family values. I thank Revell Publishers and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for providing Nowhere to Turn for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. I would give this book five out of five stars for being able to keep readers awake and turning pages throughout the night. I am anxiously awaiting book three, No Place to Hide.
- Nowhere to Turn was Spine Tingling Suspense by Robin on 9/3/2014
Nowhere to Turn
Book Summary: She thought her days of hiding were over . . . but the danger has just begun. The day Danielle Harding takes her eleven-year-old son and flees from her abusive husband is the same day Kurt Harding dies. A relieved Dani believes she and her son are finally safe--but in reality, things are just heating up. When Kurt was alive, he took something important from a mysterious individual--who wants the item back and believes Dani now has it. As she and her son run for their lives, they have nowhere to turn, until she hires Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge and goes into hiding. Unfortunately, she won't be able to hide for long . . . From the first breathless scene, this tension-laced story will hold you in its iron grip as bestselling author Lynette Eason propels you along in a race to discover the truth.
Review: This is the first book that I have read by Lynette Eason from Revell. I was hooked from the start. There was a lot of intensity throughout the story. I did think the ones protecting Dani were not as attentive to the details as they should of been, they could not figure out how they were being tracked. That seemed a little sloppy for a group with their background. When Simon was not happy or following through with the hiding and on the run part was realistic. About 2/3rd of the way into the book I thought the suspense stalled and some of the mystery was taken away with key information provided was not preferred by me. I loved the suspense, plot and characters. Kurt was a real piece of work in the beginning and Stuart was really no different. Well written and believable over all. Loved the secondary characters of Tori and Kade. Overall the story line was enjoyable. There were several surprises with the final fireworks!
I would like to thank Net Galley and Revell for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
- Outstandig novel, fast paced, suspense by Michelle on 8/29/2014
Nowhere to Turn Book 2 in Hidden Identity by Lynette Eason
Danielle Harding thought after her abusive husband passed away she could finally live a normal life. After being trapped for twelve years, it’s time to show her hearing impaired son a ordinary life. She feels she is finally safe but within six months she realizes she is no safer than before. Her brother in law is stalking her. Someone is trying to kill her. With nowhere to go she turns to Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge to protect her and her son. And then the action starts, danger is everywhere they turn. What seems like an open and shut stalking case soon proves to be so much more. Who can she trust and where can she hide.
I give Nowhere to Turn 5 stars. It was fast paced, with a little romance, and lots of suspense. Lynette Eason is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. She did an outstanding job of brining the character to life in a believable fashion. Nowhere to Turn is part of a Hidden Identity series but can be read as a stand alone. Book 1 No One to Trust is also a 5 star fantastic read.
I want to give a high-five to the author Lynette Eason and publisher Revell for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for the authors and publishers generosity.
