Ordered to take time off while the investigation continues, Alexia makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother's home and attend her high school reunion. But trouble seems to be following her and within hours of arriving home she's unexpectedly involved with murder, arson - and a handsome detective.
Unfortunately, the conflicts she's encountering are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she strives to forgive her family history, she must decide if the secret she's been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light. Chock-full of the suspense and romantic tension readers have come to expect from author Lynette Eason, When the Smoke Clears is the explosive first book in the Deadly Reunions series.

- Dangerous World by Smiling Sally on 2/12/2012
I enjoyed trying to figure out why Alexis Allen has run-ins with crimes--crimes against her! She sure lives in a dangerous world. She leaves her childhood home directly after her high school graduation. The reader discovers her reasons for the quick getaway. The story opens ten years later when Alexis runs out of air while rescuing a child from a fire, only to find tiny holes in her air hose. While her superiors investigate the cause, Alexis is able to come home to visit her mother in the hospital due to unknown causes and her brother nowhere to be found. These mysteries are later solved.
However, I must point out that all mysteries are not solved within the covers of this novel. I suppose the author wants to have readers hungry for the next book in the series when perhaps, other pieces of the puzzle will be brought to light. No fair, I say!
Nonetheless, I had a good time reading this first in the series, and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
