No Place to Hide by Lynette Easonnoplacetohide
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense

No Place to Hide by Lynette Eason was a roller coaster ride of screaming hills and whiplash curves that come at you fast and leave you breathless. And, it doesn’t start with the slow hill building up to the screaming downhill, either. It starts with the female lead, Jackie Sellers, breaking into the male lead, Ian Lockwood’s apartment. Then (screaming hill) she realizes the apartment she thought was empty, isn’t, and she goes into attack mode. As a member of Operation: Refuge she has skills, but the guy she’s fighting also has skills. Somewhere in the fight, she realizes she’s attacking Ian – a MUCH different Ian than she remembers!

Jackie and Ian grew up together as both neighbors and best friends. Ian was the scrawny, brainy kid all the other kids picked on – except Jackie. Jackie included Ian in everything she did and considered him her best friend. When her family moved away, Ian was devastated. He began studying martial arts as a way to protect himself from the constant bullying and as a result, developed some MAJOR muscles. He works for Wainwright Labs, looking for a vaccine for malaria, where he receives an email written in code that intrigues him. He prints a copy, faxes it to his cousin, Holly, who is a cryptologist, and hopes to get her help in decoding the email. When he leaves work that same night, someone tries to run him down in the parking lot. Scary men follow him home but before they can get to him, Jackie breaks into his apartment.

Jackie saw her old friend, Ian on a news bulletin that listed him in connection with a possible terrorist plot. Since she grew up with him, she does not believe he is capable of turning against his country, so she sets out to prove his innocence, starting with whatever she can find in Ian’s apartment. What she finds is Ian and his sister’s former service dog, Gus. The two go on the run, always one step ahead of the bad guys, but the evil keeps finding them.

Can they prove Ian’s innocence to the FBI before the evil nipping at their heels takes a giant bite out of them? Can they stop the actual plot before thousands are harmed?

This book is a can’t-put-it down, don’t start it before bedtime, read! I loved Jackie’s loyalty to Ian, even though she hadn’t seen him in years. All she really knew about him was what she remembered from their childhood, but she was willing to put her reputation on the line on the strength of their past. Being around Ian and watching his strong faith in action helped Jackie take baby-steps back to the faith of her youth, which I appreciated. There’s lots of action here and quite a few people die, offscreen as it were. Be prepared for a thrill ride on this coaster!

Rated PG-13: Quite a few people die in violent ways in this one, but most are “found” that way. Would probably be more appropriate for 13 and above.
