Protecting Tanner Hollow by Lynette Eason is an exciting collection of four contemporary Christian suspense novellas. All are set in Tanner Hollow and entitled Lethal Homecoming, Lethal Conspiracy, Lethal Secrets and Lethal Agenda. The stories are all linked by the characters with the focus shifting in each one. Familiar faces from the Blue Justice series make an appearance too.
Lynette Eason is the queen of the suspense novel. She grabs the reader’s attention from the start as we hang on for the roller coaster read.
Each story has similar themes – corruption, greed, attempted murder. The law enforcement agencies work together to solve the crimes and protect the innocent. There is also the theme of taking care of the vulnerable.
The reader witnesses God’s hand on lives even when characters have moved away from God or are angry with God, God never leaves them. He works tirelessly on their behalf. Tanner Hollow is a small community with a big heart. Strangers are given huge welcomes and treated as family. The reader ‘feels’ the warmth emanating from the pages.
Lynette Eason has created a marvellous set of characters. She has perfectly captured the mannerisms of the children and a twenty year old with autism. The enthusiasm and knowledge with which he approached certain subjects was infectious.
Protecting Tanner Hollow is a fabulous read that I could not put down. I always adore Lynette Eason’s books.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
