Don't Look Back by Lynette Eason

Book description:
One man lives to see her dead--the other is fighting to keep her alive.

Twelve years ago, forensic anthropologist Jamie Cash survived a brutal kidnapping. After years of therapy, she has made a life for herself--though one that is haunted by memories of her terrifying past. She finally lets herself believe that she can have a close relationship with a man, when signs start appearing that point to one frightening fact--her attacker is back and ready to finish the job he started all those years ago.

Can she escape his grasp a second time? And will she ever be able to let down her guard enough to find true love?

Filled with heart-stopping suspense, gritty realism, and a touch of romance, Don't Look Back pulls you into its twists and turns to hold you there until the very last page.

My review:
This is the second book in The Women of Justice series. I also reviewed the first book in the series, Too Close to Home. That book was excellent and I didn't think the author could top it..... but she did. This second book in the series, Don't Look Back, is even better than the first book. It definitely gets my "read-in-one-sitting" status, for that is exactly what I did.

The book has it all: suspense, mystery,  romance, and a Christian message - which is not preachy, but is more of a trust God message. The plot was realistic and scary. I sat down, began reading, and just could not put the book down. I also really enjoy the characters in this book - and the series, and it was nice to have the characters from the previous book also in this one.

I don't go with a star rating, but if I did, this book would get the highest possible. There is absolutely nothing the author could have done to make this book better. She penned an excellent novel of suspense, and I am looking forward to reading more from her in the future.
