When a Secret Kills by Lynnette Eason

She's come home to put a killer behind bars.
But the killer plans to put her six feet under.
Investigative reporter Jillian Carter knows it's time to put the past to rest. She's tired of looking over her shoulder, letting a killer go free. She's no longer the scared kid who changed her name and disappeared. Now, no matter what the cost, Jillian must do what she is trained to do-find the truth and expose it. And the truth is that Senator Frank Hoffman committed murder ten years ago-and Jillian watched it happen.

Didn't she?

Get ready for the spine-tingling, nail-biting conclusion to this explosive series.

My review:
   I really enjoy Lynnette Eason's books, but I wasn't too sure about this series. It sounded really good, so its not that. I wasn't too sure about a trilogy where you everything wasn't solved until the last book. I like to see a book end, and the first two in the series had endings, but there was still so much that didn't end. I still enjoyed the first two books immensely though, but to say I was eagerly waiting for book three to come out, is an understatement. I read it the day it came in the mail, and it was well worth the wait.

   In book three of The Deadly Reunions Series,  we finally get to meet the woman who has been at the heart of all the threats and attempts on the lives of her two friends in the previous two books. The book brings all three friends together along with other characters from the other two books. The suspense and attempts to silence Jillian are stepped up in this book, and I couldn't have put the book down if I'd had to. Even though I thought I knew everything, there were still some surprises, and this book was even more of  page turner than the other two were.

  This is definitely the best book, and series from this author so far. It is a series that definitely needs to be read in order. The books do have a lesson. It is always important to do the right thing, even when it can mean your life. Book three also dealt with forgiveness. Jillian had to forgive those who had wronged her so much, and the police detective who had been her senior year love in high school, also had much to forgive.

  I absolutely loved this whole series, and especially this last book in the trilogy. It is one I found myself reading back over some parts, including the great ending. I am sad to see the series end, but what a great journey the books took me on.
