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.
