My Review of this Book!

When Smoke Clears by Lynette Eason

Wow, my nose was in this book from the first to the last page! This is my first book my Lynette Eason so I didn’t know just what to expect. It didn’t take me long to find out! Trouble seemed to follow Alexia Allen everywhere she went, and I mean trouble. Dangerous, horrifying, death-threating trouble. Who could hate her so much they are determined to kidnap her, then do who knows what to her? And Hunter is right there with her, pulling as many strings as possible to find out who is behind all of this trama.

I fell in love with several of these characters right off the bat. Alexia is wanting to make amends with her mom, but has be careful of where she goes. Hunter is just adorable and I love the extreme ways he tries to protect Alexia, even from his brother. This well written story and extremely creative characters will draw you into this book and keep you engulfed until you read the last word. Yes! It is just that good! I Love, Love it!

If you like suspense/thrillers, this is a MUST read. Go grab a copy to read and enjoy for yourself. One warning though, don’t do like me and read it most of the night. You might just hear some strange noises going on outside!

This book was provided by Revell Publishing for me to read and review. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

Excerpt

Excerpt

“Get out, Alexia. Now!”

“Got to check the closet first, sir.”

“Get your tail outta there.

Immediately!”

She needed air. How had her

oxygen run out? She should have had

at least another five minutes. Reaching

up, she disconnected the hose from

her tank and shoved it up under her

heavy turnout. The coat would protect

her as much as possible from smoke

inhalation. And she wanted to minimize

the blast of hot air that would fill her

lungs. She caught a breath.

The dizziness receded.

The countdown was on. The decision:

leave or check the closet?

She scanned the imaging device over

the door.

Bingo. “I’ve got something.

Definitely a child.”

“Alexia! Get out!”

“She’s here, sir. Can’t leave without

her.”

Alexia went to the door and turned the

knob. A little girl. The child looked up at

her, eyes wide, stark terror stamped on her

tear-streaked features. Then she coughed

and her eyes rolled back. Alexia slung the

imager over her shoulder and leaned in to

pick up the little girl.

Alexia took another breath and coughed.

Dizziness returned full force and she

went to one knee. Vaguely, she felt the

sweat roll down her back. “I’m in trouble,”

she said into her radio, keeping her cool,

refusing to panic. Help was just a second

away. “Where’s RIT? No air.”

She pulled in a lungful of smoke this time.

Coughing, sputtering, she turned with the

child, frantic to get her out before the flames

caught up with the smoke.

And then the spots before her eyes

merged into one big black dot. Then nothing.
