    Wow! Wow! Wow! What a book! I was pulled into Jamie's story instantly and couldn't put the book down. With the way Lynette wrote, especially the Hero's parts, there were times I was creeped out! Careful about reading this late into the night, lol! LOVED every minute I spent in this book!!!!!!! Women of Justice series is one of my favorite law-enforcement suspense/thrillers I've read to date!

    Such a thrillingly creepy bad guy this has! Definitely reminiscent of a Criminal Minds villain. A couple of things took one star off my rating: a number of run-on sentences/comma splices/fragmented sentences (especially in conversation, where it would sound really awkward if someone spoke so), and my guessing who the villain was early on. And a few things remained unexplained, like how the guy ended up with an X-ray machine, or how they knew the victim numbers at the time they did.

This one will make your blood run cold in some spots... I loved Jamie and getting to hear more about Samantha and meeting Kit (heroine of book 3). I'm looking forward to the next installment!

    4.5 Edgy Stars! Really enjoyed this one! The suspense was really edgy and had me on my toes throughout. I love how Lynette Eason includes faith into her novels. Definitely recommend if you like suspense with a faith angle. Will be reading book 3 in the near future :).

    A thrilling read! I was glued to the pages and read it in one sitting.

    With a suspect so twisted you feel like you are in an episode of Criminal Minds, and then with a forensic anthropologist as the main female character, you feel like you are in an episode of Bones :-). Both of these series are 2 of my favourites, so I definitely enjoyed the book. Suspense wise I felt book 1 in the series kept me more on my seat and guessing till the end.

Book 2, the suspense is great and what is happening to Jaime is scary and twisted (makes me look twice now), but I did guess the suspect correct very early in the book which took some of the suspense away for me, however, there was a twist at the end I totally did not see coming. Jaime's faith and trust in God through everything was so inspiring. I really loved her character and Dakota's behaviour and feelings towards her, especially a scene in the hospital at the end. Will definitely recommend this to everyone who likes a great suspense.

    I figured out who the killer was within 15 percent of the book. Probably in part because this author used the same pattern as in the first book of this series. Given that technique, it was easy to pinpoint who the bad guy was. Pretty predictable in general. It's not a bad book. Clean and easy to read. But it probably wouldn't stay with you or thoroughly enthrall most readers, IMO.

    I read two other suspense mysteries in the last few months which were both more enjoyable. Several plot elements were too predictable. Character development here did not work for me.

    This one is kind of disgusting and boring with the telling of the Jaime story over and over and over.

She finally lets herself get close to a man, FBI agent Dakota Richards, when signs start appearing that point to one frightening fact--her attacker is back and ready to finish the job he started all those year ago. This was a good book but difficult to read at times due to the violence committed by the villain. It was almost a little to creepy for me. Once again, Eason packs her plot from start to finish with action and suspense. I love the group of characters that star in the Women of Justice series. They not only work together but are very supportive of one another. Although I knew about halfway through the book who the bad guy probably was, there were still enough twists, turns, and surprises that it made the book interesting. The slow developing relationship between Jamie and Dakota was very well written, and I loved the way Jamie's deep faith helped renew Dakota's relationship with God. Although, due to the violence incorporated in this book, I liked Too Close to Home better, this was still a good read because I enjoyed the relationships between all of the characters so much.

After having been introduced to them in Too Close To Home, I could hardly wait to read their story as Dakota was one of my favorite characters. While I did guess who the killer was, I was still surprised by quite a few things in Don't Look Back and the ending was very thrilling! There were some really sad scenes, but also some very happy ones. I loved how Jamie and Dakota interacted with each other. ;) All in all, a great read and I am really looking forward to reading A Killer Among Us as soon as I can. This book's epilogue definitely grabbed my attention and now I want to know what is going to happen next. *I borrowed this book from the library. I was not required to write a review, but chose to.

    This book may be triggering to those who have experienced sexual abuse. That being said, it represented the aftermath of abuse very, very well. I was skeptical of how this subject would be handled, but the author did a fabulous job. As one who has experienced sexual abuse, I appreciated the accuracy of the portrayal. The same goes for how the mental abuse and mind games were represented. Jamie's anxiety, panic attacks, constant self-doubt, and trust issues hit very close to home with me.

I myself was not triggered by reading this, but I do feel that it's important to have a warning at the beginning of books like this to inform those who are more sensitive to this subject. I appreciate the author addressing this issue and writing about such a tough subject. She handled it very well.

    I like Lynette Eason's books and storylines, and this book is no exception. But for me, her writing it just too graphic. I tended to skip around on this book because some of the descriptions were just too graphic. If those kinds of things don't bother you, then you will probably truly like this book. But if you prefer not to read those kinds of descriptions, I would be careful reading this book.

    This book felt really formulaic. It was almost like she took the same formula from the first book and put in the second book with different characters. I figured out who the bad guys were early on, and the book lost my interest from there.

    Carol

    It looks like from the reviews that I am one of the few readers who did not like this book too much. I do think her writing got a bit better but the villain was too easy. The strength, to me, is in the characters not in the mystery.

    I enjoyed the book, but there was not much depth to the characters. There were too many similarities between the first and second book in the series.

    Comparing this book to Too Close To Home, I enjoyed Don't Look Back a lot more. The creepy level was off the charts for me...which automatically made me love the book! I do not reccomend reading this book at night! The romance was so nice and sweet. Dakota and Jamie are my favorite characters in this series for sure. A clean suspenseful read reccomended to 15 and up!

    DON’T LOOK BACK, the second installment in the Woman of Justice series by Lynette Eason, is another riveting story that compels you to turn page after page. Jamie Cash is a survivor. Twelve years ago, she was the victim of a psychopath who assaulted her, tortured her, and left her for dead. Strong willed and determined, Jamie has fought her way back from victim to success story.

Jamie Cash is a survivor. Twelve years ago, she was the victim of a psychopath who assaulted her, tortured her, and left her for dead. Strong willed and determined, Jamie has fought her way back from victim to success story. Now a forensic anthropologist, Jamie works with the medical examiner’s office to bring closure to cold cases, and speak for victims that would otherwise have no voice. FBI Special Agent Dakota Richards is in love with Jamie, even though they have never even dated. Partnered with Jamie’s brother-in-law, Connor Wolfe, Dakota spends time with Jamie at work and socially, but she has never let him into her personal space. When Dakota finds out about the attack that nearly killed Jamie, he understands better her at-arms-length friendship, but is determined to break through the barriers Jamie has erected and show her she can trust again. Just as Jamie begins to believe she can have a normal life and a relationship with Dakota, her worst nightmare comes to light. Her attacker is back to finish the job he started twelve years ago. Doing all she kind to fight the fear that paralyzed her for so many years, Jamie decides she will not let a maniac manipulate her. She will fight him, even if it means losing her own life. Gripping action! Great suspense! DON’T LOOK BACK is everything I look for in a suspense novel. Even though I knew early on who Jamie’s attacker was, the story that unfolded was a thrill to devour. Knowing there will be at least be one more installment in the Women of Justice series (clues from the Epilogue), I will waited anxiously for its release. Book provided for review purposes.

    This book was fast-paced and I didn’t want to put it down. It definitely kept my attention as far as the plot and action went.

However, there were some things that bothered me. Such as the fact that I was able to figure out who the “bad guy” was almost as soon as they introduced the person into the story. (But, in the very end there was a twist that surprised me, and I liked that.) I don’t know if most people will be able to figure it out, or if it was just obvious to me. There were also times when I was a little confused about small things. It seemed like some more information might have been introduced to make things clearer. But, these were small, scene related issues, not big things like the over all plot. Sometimes, it was a little far-fetched when the characters would do something that seemed obviously stupid to me, and I’m not even a cop. SPOILERS>> Like when they said that the stalker was probably someone that Jamie worked with, but they never looked into that idea. Or when they thought that he was in the building and they left Jamie alone with only one agent to protect her! (If they thought that he was in the building, why would they go outside to look at his car rather than sending someone to check for them?) Little things like that made it less realistic to me. << I liked Jamie and how determined she was to move on from her past. She was a good heroine. I also liked the little twist about why her parents were acting strange. Wasn’t expecting that and how it played into the plot in the end. In all, I didn’t dislike the book, but I didn’t love it. I think it will go over pretty well with fans of the Christian suspense genre, though.

Will he get Jamie this time? I suspected who the attacker was but it still really freaked me out when I was right! I had a real connection with the protagonist, Jamie. It was exciting to read her own story after meeting her in the first book of this series-'Too close to home'. The author revealed-bit by bit- what Jamie went though in her terrible encounter with her kidnapper, and I admired her determination to overcome her past. It was really encouraging to see how she was still able to trust God through every thing. 'One man wants her dead, but the other is fighting to keep her alive.' Her killer - referred to in this book as 'The Hero'-has his own POV's in the book. I found it pretty creepy to see what was going on through his mind. Dakota Richards, FBI agent-a man who really cares about Jamie and does everything he can to protect her. But where is safety when a killer can enters you home and dogs your every step? One of the best suspense novels I've read, 'Don't look back' continues the 'Women of Justice' series and delivers gripping action in a masterful plot which will keep you thinking about it through the night!

What ensues is not a story for the faint of heart. I must admit I was a bit surprised at the physical description of some of the crime scenes, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was gory, just very gripping! Chilling is definitely a word I would use to describe this book. What a villain! I felt every single emotion Jamie went through. My blood ran cold and my heart beat stilled. The anguish, the high stakes that constantly got higher, I admit there were times I wanted it all to slow down! I literally could not put this book down. It is a masterful romantic suspense. A satisfying story from beginning to end, I HIGHLY recommend it. THIS is what romantic suspense is all about. A must read! This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review. Available October 2010 from Revell, a division of Baker publishers.

This is an amazing series which I highly recommend if you enjoy Christian romantic suspense, but I would suggest you read Too Close To Home before Don't Look Back as this is a series that is definitely best when read in order! :) Don't Look Back is an amazing book which I love and even though it was a re-read, in many ways it felt like I was reading it for the first time all over again. It takes a very special book to accomplish that feat!

    I really enjoyed this book. The suspense was intense and I loved that Connor & Sam, from the first book of this series, were right there in the middle of things. I really liked how Jamie was scared, but didn't let her fear rule her. She consistently leaned on God for strength & courage. It was nice to read a book with a sensible heroine. She didn't go off half cocked throwing herself in danger, but used common sense & listened to her sister, Conner and Dakota. She showed compassion and she reach I really enjoyed this book.

She wasn't portrayed as perfect though. I think Lynette Eason did a good job of giving her a balance. I did figure out who "The Hero" was pretty early on, but I wasn't completely sure I was right until close to the end. There was a few inconsistencies. **Spoiler if you haven't read first book** For example: at the very beginning it mentions that Connor & Sam got married a year and half ago. But then later Sam is talking to Jamie & she says something about her & Conner only being married a little over 6 months. Not something that will keep me from reading more of her books, just an irritant for me.

    I do believe Eason took it up a notch in Book 2. The novel grabbed my interest from the beginning and I really was enjoying it. However, around halfway through there were a couple of things in the story that just seemed really unrealistic that bugged me. There were things said between the characters at times that I also found to be a little bit overkill. Still, I found the romance and relationship between our two main characters to flow well and be believable. The suspense was once again the hig I do believe Eason took it up a notch in Book 2.

Even though I had "the Hero" figured out early on, it actually helped to add to the suspense. And Eason even threw in a surprise twist or two... Overall, a really entertaining read! Eason rocks at suspense! If you read my previous review on Book 1, you will be glad to know that Book 2 had all the chapter headings and page breaks! Made for a much more enjoyable and less confusing read!

    Bones Meets Criminal Minds Meets Christian Fiction...Redux! The title of this review says it all! This was a great installment in the Women of Justice Series, where the main character is a lot like the lead character in Bones!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Jamie and Dakota end up working together to find a serial killer who targeted Jamie 12 years before. Because of her personal experience, they can anticipate his motives and his victims based on similar injuries. I wish this story had a few more characters so the killer wasn't quite as obvious. But the suspense kept me interested.

When Kit found out she was adopted, she searched for her birth family and found them. I'm happy for Jamie and Dakota. I liked Dakota's processing of faith; the emphasis put on communicating in relationships. Great story.
