No Place to Hide (Hidden Identity #3) by Lynette Eason

Title: No Place to Hide (Hidden Identity #3)
Author: Lynette Eason
Pages: 336
Release Date: May 5, 2015
Publisher: Revell
Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

About the book:

     She’ll defend her friend until the bitter end- but is she in over her head?

     It’s not every day you see your childhood friend and onetime crush on national news. Jackie Sellers just wishes it were under different circumstances. She can’t believe that Ian Lockwood is wanted in connection with a terrorist plot, and she’s determined to find him and help him clear his name. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one looking for him. The FBI wants him captured. The bad guys want him dead. Ian just wants to stay alive long enough to prove his innocence and prevent a catastrophe.

     Lynette Eason delivers nonstop action as Jackie and Ian travel a dangerous road – one that may lead straight to destruction.

My review:

     This is a great inspirational suspense novel.

     The main characters, Jackie Sellers and Ian Lockwood, are extremely will developed. The author did a fantastic job of crafting a back story for each of them that goes all the way back to childhood. The way they are presented in small pieces throughout the book leads to a good understanding of their personalities and what hang-ups they have as adults.

     The main plot line is incredible and has so much intense suspense and action built in that it was a book I knew I would have to finish. I did have one problem with the way the story was written though. As the story progressed there were a few times that seemingly random scenes dropped into it sporadically. The shifts to and from these scenes were so sudden that I was caught off guard and my attention was distracted by them. It felt to me like the main plot lost momentum from them. Late in the story more information was revealed that did tie those random scenes into the overall plot which led to a nice feeling of completion.

     Those distractions did affect my enjoyment of the book and are the reason that I dropped my rating down to 4 stars. I do recommend this book. I will be looking forward to reading more books by this author.
