I am not a typical suspense fan. I prefer a suspense novel with deeper issues included. Well-rounded and complex characters are a particular favorite. Oh, and if a book can make me cry it gets a higher rating from me. This book included all of the above. I felt stressed a few times over some characters' welfare. I found their issues and background believable (having been a social worker for 30+ years I can vouch for their dysfunctional way of thinking.) I haven't read all the prior books in this series so I was not able to get attached to some of the main character's friends, but that wasn't necessary in order to enjoy this book.

There was a particularly touching seen that got my tears going and it was toward the end. I won't post a spoiler but if you read it you will know what scene I am referring to. The hero was detained and unable to reach the heroine because he was needed to deal with a situation on the family farm. I still get choked up when I think about the conversation. Wow.

What I mean by complex characters is this... Heather, the heroine, was a former soldier and complex because of PTSD. Ryker, a young teen, was complex due to a history of abuse by his father. And the hero was just sweet and patient. Gotta love heroes with a soft heart. Anyway, Lynette is one of those authors that I enjoy reading because her characters seem like real people and aren't cardboard cutouts of what we think characters need to look like in Christian novels. That said, I hope you enjoy this book too. ( )

Active Defense by Lynette Eason is book three in the Danger Never Sleeps series. This is a great story that can also be read as a stand alone story. Heather is back home after a tour in Afghanistan, but continues to struggle with a suicide bombing that took place at the hospital in Afghanistan. If that isn’t bad enough she has a stalker and now that she has gone into hiding, attacks on her life get worse.

Travis is a friend and owner of a security company. When he hears of her disappearance, he tracks her down and keeps an eye on her. But things are so much worse than even he can handle and other friends are called into help.

This is a great Christian suspense story with strong characters who care for others. The story is fast paced and the ending was not expected. I especially like how Heather is able to reach out to Ryker, a young man who is being abused by his father. I like the family aspect of the story with going to Travis’s family to keep Heather and Ryker safe as well as how he steps in to help Ryker. There is a fair amount of violence as well as topics such as abuse and murder in this story.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Revell Publishing through NetGalley. All views expressed are only my honest opinion. ( )
