From the Back Cover
After a harrowing experience with an obsessed patient, oncology nurse practitioner Leigh Weston needed a change. She thought she'd left her troubles behind when she moved home to Carrington, North Carolina, and took a job in the emergency department of the local hospital. But when someone tampers with her brakes, she fears the past has chased her into the present. She reaches out to her high school friend turned homicide investigator, Ryan Parker, for help.
Ryan finds satisfaction in his career, but his favorite way to use his skills is as a volunteer underwater investigator with the Carrington County Sheriff's Office dive team. When the body of a wealthy businessman is discovered in Lake Porter, the investigation uncovers a possible serial killer--one with a terrifying connection to Leigh Weston and deadly implications for them all.

I loved the long time friendship of Leigh Weston and Ryan Parker and the possibility of it turning into something more. I also loved the supporting character of Gabe and his wonderful personality. I hope he gets his own story later in the series! I can't wait to read Adam and Sabrina's story in Book 2 of the series.
Lynette Eason is one of my favorite authors, and I recently read Code of Valor (Book #3 in her Blue Justice Series). She had a crossover section in part of the book where the Dive Team Members from this book assisted with a case in her book. I can't wait to go back and reread Code of Valor since I now am familiar with the Dive Team characters! I would definitely recommend Lynn H. Blackburn to fans of romantic suspense.
This is not a novel to read in snippets or to be read at the same time as you are reading two/three other books. (There are plenty of novels that can be read this way.) This plot is complex and if you come and go in your reading too many times or read too many other books while reading this one, you could easily lose the intensity, forget who secondary characters are and miss nuances that may be key to solving the mystery.
Blackburn has given readers a truly amazing romantic suspense novel. The setting is a small town with a medical center and a neighborhood with large lots and a huge lake behind the homes. Blackburn’s characters are realistic, complex, the best at their professions, working to strengthen their faith, the romance is sweet and tender and and one is pure evil! She manages to keep you on the edge of your seat for the entire book and makes you feel as though you are running for your life. The intensity continues to rise throughout the book. There’s nothing quite as creepy as reading along and discovering the killer is from your hometown! That’s when you momentarily FORGET you’re reading fiction and start rereading the name and see if you recognize it so can ask family and friends if they recognize it! That’s REALISTIC FICTION!
One of the reasons, in addition to the above personal criticisms, was that no one thought to investigate who tampered with the food item. I won’t say anything more because I hate surprise spoilers. But seriously, this was a huge omission on the part of the investigators. I was also very put off by the extremely unprofessional way the hospital personnel pried into the relationship between Leigh and Ryan. Seriously, no one should have asked her why Ryan was her emergency contact person, especially the doctor who demanded to know what their relationship was. There was also way to much adolescent innuendo and teasing going on.
