Book Description

February 1, 2012 Deadly Reunions (Book 1)
As a member of the North Cascades Smokejumpers, Alexia Allen always takes care of the equipment that keeps her safe. So when she nearly dies in a fire due to equipment failure, she knows something is up. 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. Yet trouble seems to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she's involved with murder, arson--and a handsome detective. But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she strives to remember and forgive her family history, she must also 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 Lynette Eason, When the Smoke Clears is the explosive first book in the Deadly Reunions series.

My take on this book:
If your looking for a story filled with non stop action packed suspense then look no further than "When The Smoke Clears" the first book in the Deadly Reunions series! If this book is any indicator of what the series is going to be like I would say it is going to be one not to be missed!

Alexia Allen is a firefighter, but when she is ordered to take some time off after an accident occurs that nearly takes her life. With her ten year reunion coming up she decides to recuperate at her mothers house so that she can attend. Seems like trouble has followed her though with a murder an arson occurring soon after she arrives in town. It appears someone may be setting her up, who is out to get her and why? 

The plot in this story is non-stop. There was never a down time for me with this one. I found myself totally immersed in the story after reading the prologue. I thought the characters in this story were very well developed and I really enjoyed the budding romance between Alexia and Detective Graham Hunter. The ending of this one leaves me anxious for the next book in the series.

Overall anyone who enjoys romantic suspense will certainly love this story, be warned though it isn't easy to figure out who-dun-it with this one. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
