"When A Heart Stops" by Lynette Eason

Deadly Reunions continues with this second installment, When A Heart Stops. First, could you read this as a stand alone? Sure you could. It might take a few chapters to catch up and make sense of the characters, but my advice would be to begin with book 1, When The Smoke Clears. (Check out my review) It will help you have a better understanding of the characters and you will enjoy the story even more. We have new characters, but the old characters are still part of this story and they draw you closer to the new characters that are introduced. It too will give you a more in depth idea of the murders happening and the whys and whats of the characters.

I really enjoyed the continuing story and can't wait to see what is going to happen next with book 3. I have had the pleasure of reading all of Lynette's books and doing reviews on each one. It's like having a front row seat in her writing journey. Eason is brilliant at suspense and keeping the reader involved. This one is a page turner for sure. Serena and Dominic might be the main characters of this story, but there is much that unfolds.

We have Serena as the Medical Examiner and we have Dominic as the FBI agent working to find the serial killer. Now, if I had a serial killer after me, I'd love to have a Dominic watching my back. I'm just sayin'. These are works of fiction. There are parts that are believable and others that are stretched a bit, but that's fiction at it's best. I like to be drawn in to the what if and the mystery that unfolds.  I like to believe the impossible is not so far off.

If your searching for a great series, this is it! This is one that will keep you reading on and leave you wanting more.

This book was a gift from Revell for its review.
