Bestselling author Lynette Eason pens a new romantic suspense series about a law enforcement family.

In Oath of Honor, police officer Isabella (“Izzy”) St. John comes from a close-knit, law enforcement family, a family who supports one another when trouble comes. Her partner’s homicide detective brother Ryan assists her as she investigates her partner’s murder. When her investigation leads to a criminal organization and possibly “dirty” cops, maybe even someone from her family, can she trust Ryan? Can she find justice for her partner Kevin when it could mean a family member is guilty?

Lynette Eason kicks off a new series guaranteed to grab the reader’s attention from the first page and keep it engaged until the last page is read. Eason creates a fast-paced story with an ensemble of complex characters, a romance between longtime friends, and enough suspense to make the reader stay up all night trying to figure out the answers. Not only is there a murder of Izzy’s partner (who is Ryan’s brother), but there are ties to gangs, the local mafia, and even a psychotic ex-boyfriend/stalker to complicate the plot.

Having most of her family in law enforcement make the bonds between them even stronger. What happens when the evidence points to one of them? Eason does a masterful job wrapping up loose ends as the clues are revealed and the groundwork is laid for the next book in the series.

Highly recommended for public libraries and romantic suspense fans of DiAnn Mills, Dani Pettrey, Irene Hannon, and Dee Henderson. Look for additional books about the St. John family coming soon!
