Hide and Seek by Lynette Eason

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense Book, Hide and Seek, the first book in a new series, Family Reunion. I love Lynette's work and this book was a great read. It was a fast paced, page turner. I really enjoyed her characters and hope to learn more about them in the upcoming stories. I also like the way she weaves her faith into her books. Sometimes it's a hard thing to do right.

Erica James spent the last three years as a skip tracer in a company she started with her brother Brandon and his best friend Jordan. A company called Finding the Lost. She started the company when her own daughter, Molly, turned up missing. Now she seems to have found everyone's children but her own. As the story opens she's just received new evidence in her daughter's case. Molly's clothes were found at a crack house, a girl named Lydia left fingerprints on a barrette. Erica heads out to the crack house to find out where this girl is. As she watches the place she hears a girl scream, she runs to help.
A man is trying to kill a girl. She pulls a gun to stop him.

Max Powel is a private investigator searching for his sister. She has been in the drug scene for years and now Lydia is a suspect in a kidnapping. He follows her to a crack house, he sees someone following her but before he can get to her, he hears her scream. A woman is there with her gun drawn. He manages to apprehend the guy that is trying to kill Lydia but when she sees him, she runs off. Erica is a woman he has read about but she is after his sister.

Erica and Max team up to find evidence in the two missing girls. Erica is sure Lydia is the one who took her daughter, while Max is there to prove Lydia is innocent. The closer they get to answers the deadlier the threats against them get but the stronger their feelings become. Both have serious issues that can halt their relationship. Can they get past those?

It is a story of letting go of your past, believing in the people you love, and moving into the plans God has for you. I loved this concept. So many times we let the past destroy our future and see no way God can work it out for us but He always has a plan. A plan that is so much better than what we are struggling to achieve. Today try to let God show you what He has in store for you. Learn to trust Him in all you ways and He can do awesome things in your world. God bless you all and have a great week.
