- No Place to Hide is Spine Tingling by Robin on 9/11/2015
No Place to Hide
Book Summary: In the latest novel in her Hidden Identity series, Lynette Eason throws listeners right into the action from the very beginning, propelling them along a dangerous road and asking the provocative question of how far we'd be willing to go if we were up against a wall. It's not every day you see your childhood friend and one-time crush on national news. Jackie Sellers just wishes that it were under different circumstances. She can't believe that Ian Lockwood is wanted in connection with a terrorist plot, and she's determined to find him and help him clear his name. But she's not the only one looking. The FBI wants him captured. The bad guys want him dead. Ian just wants to stay alive long enough to save thousands of innocent lives.
Review: This is one heart pounding book. From the start it has my head spinning and my heart pounding. Is it questionable to try to save and old friend from a treason charge. False charges or real is the question. Jackie was convinced Ian was innocent. Loved seeing how they were hounded and in the midst of all this they have no idea how they were being tracked. Some of the timing seemed off, but the tension and mystery was pulse pounding. Lynette Eason books have taught me to expect anything. I think this book is no exception. I was sitting at the edge of my seat to the end. I will admit that I have put the book down just to take a breath!
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.
- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 6/13/2015
Some authors gently ease you into the story. They let you get to know the characters and then they spring the twists on you. Not Lynette Eason! You are immediately plunged into the thick of things and the intensity only goes up from there.
The opening scene begins on a Friday at the Center for Disease Control headquarters. An employee is being blackmailed and his family is threatened unless he agrees to stealing a deadly virus. The next scene is on Sunday and our heroine Jackie Sellers is breaking into an old friend's house because she thinks he may be in trouble. Her friend Ian Lockwood is in the house but is hiding because dangerous men are after him. Before you know it those dangerous men are after them both. To make matters even worse the FBI suspects Ian of being a terrorist and are also looking for Jackie as his accomplice.
I'm not going to give any of the ending away but let's just say all of the action takes place in about a week. And what an intense week it is. The story begins in Atlanta but then makes it way to New York City. That's a whole lot of territory to cover when you're on the run.
This book is a real work-out for your senses. My eyes just flew across the page trying to keep up with all of the action going on. Of the three books in the Hidden Identity series I think this one was the most intense. More details are provided about the Operation Refuge group and its members, even the seemingly unaffiliated member Ron.
One of the interesting side stories that involves Ian's cousin and Jackie's friend Holly has some twists that I didn't see coming. But remember this is romantic suspense so it isn't all about murder and intrigue. This was a fantastic series that I recommend to anyone that likes a bit of heart-pumping suspense mixed with a bit of romance.
No Place To Hide is part of a series but it can definitely be read as a stand-alone novel. If you are thinking about reading the entire series I think you should start at book one, No One To Trust, and then read book two, Nowhere To Turn. Each book is easily read separately but there is some connectivity between the characters and I wouldn't want your story to be spoiled by any little giveaways that may occur if you read them out of order.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
- Kept Me on The Edge of My Seat! by Katie on 5/22/2015
"No Place to Hide" certainly lives up to it's name. This book was fulled with suspense that kept me up late into the night, I didn't want to put it down because I just had to know what happened next and considering I had to work the next day that tells you something right there.
I took out ten chapters a night which landed me at ending the book in four days and most likely, it would have been read even faster had I not had to work. Throughout the book the main characters, Ian and Jackie, were running for their lives as the back of the book states. The constant game of cat and mouse really entertained me. It reminded me of the cartoon "Tom & Jerry".
The mystery takes you on just about every ride you could experience in a suspense novel. You never could guess what was going to happen next. This was the first book I have read by the author and I will be reading more from her. I really did enjoy this book.
There are two other books in this series so everyone who reads this knows, personally I didn't read the first two before this one, reading them isn't a must but I would recommend it because some of the characters from the other books were included in this one and I found myself wanting to know what happends in their story but as I said, it isn't a must. Everything made plenty of sense to read it as one book and not a series.
What I loved about Jackie's character, even though she didn't have any faith at all in God at the start, she wouldn't abandon her friend, Ian. She stood by him and helped him fight it out until the end. (Whether it is a bitter ending or not, you'll have to read it to find out.) I really liked the story & the characters as well.
I personally would recommend it to anyone who loves a good suspense novel, though one thing I have to say is, if you are sensitive to shooting and yes, killing, this might not be the book for you because there is both. I didn't mind it but it depends on the person. All in all I give this book four stars!
I received this book from Revell Publishers for my honest review, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and have not been compensated for it
in any way. All opinions expressed are mine.
- Entertai by Entertaining Christian suspense fiction you can easily recommend on 5/12/2015
In No Place to Hide there is intense action with the plot involving potential biological terrorism bringing riveting suspense and tension to the story and to the individual characters. There is the criminal aspect where motives get blurred in the actions of those involved.
The two protagonists, Ian and Jackie, are upstaged a bit by the dog, Gus. Of course, that is not really true, but he is a lovable doggie woven into the pages of this suspense tale. While Ian and Jackie are friends from their past lives, their friendship bonds are cemented as they try to hide from their pursuers. It is hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys as this story unfolds because both the good and bad guys are chasing Ian and Jackie.
Desperate to escape and untangle the mess that had enveloped Ian, he and Jackie seek the help of a group of professionals with whom Jackie has worked. They pave the way for their undetected pursuit of truth.
As the story reaches the end, the conclusion is totally unexpected. The unsuspected culprit and the reason for the terrorist act totally unexpected.
Lynette Eason has again produced a good clean tale of suspension. There is faith and romance lightly interspersed into the mix. This is a good example of entertaining Christian fiction that you can recommend as can I.

- I Didn't See That Coming! by Claudia on 5/11/2015
No Place to Hide is the third book in Lynette Eason’s Hidden Identity series. Eason is surely maintaining her momentum in this series. While I don’t like clichés I have to say she has hit another out of the park with this one. The books in this series revolve around a semi-government agency, Operation Refuge, which works to help and protect those who can’t help and protect themselves. In this book it is one of their own, Jackie Sellers, who is need of help, but unlike their usual clients, Jackie has some skills developed at the police academy to bring to the table.
Jackie’s childhood friend, Ian Lockwood, has found himself on the run from law enforcement and unknown assassins. His only hope is to avoid capture long enough to prove his innocence and to discover who is really behind whatever is going on. That’s not going to be easy with his face splashed all over the news, and his name being linked to terrorism. What a surprise when Jackie breaks into his home after years having passed since last seeing her. Thus begins a tumultuous ride for both the characters and the reader. There is nothing predictable about the storyline in this book. I repeatedly found myself saying, “Well, I didn’t see that coming!”
I highly recommend this book and this author. I’ve read enough of her books to feel comfortable even recommending those I haven’t had the opportunity to pick up yet. There are only a handful of authors that I have that much confidence in. I thank Revell Publishers and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for providing No Place to Hide for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own.
- Finding A Safe Place by Maureen on 5/6/2015
Jackie Sellers will do anything for those she loves and that being said, she would give the ultimate, her life. The book opens early on with her doing just that, but is she helping a friend or a terrorist?
The disregard for human life for some of the characters here is terrible, don’t sneeze at the wrong time, or worse make a snide remark, you’re a goner. Pretty soon Ian Lockwood and Jackie are on the run from the good and the bad guys. Every one is a suspect, and evil waits for no one and no one is apt to be alive at the end.
Unfortunately, this story could be a non-fiction read, as there are terrorists infiltrating the world, and they look like everyone else and are not the ones you would suspect to bringing injustice into the world.
A read that you won’t be able to put down once you open the cover, it will put your heart in your throat, and at times you want that clock to move faster and at others to slow down. The characters are well developed here, and there are a lot of twists and turns and surprises. A really good and suspenseful read!
I received this book through the Revell Book Bloggers Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
