Review: Oath of Honor by Lynette Eason

Goodreads Blurb....

Police officer Isabelle St. John loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. With three brothers and two sisters, she's never without someone to hang out with--or fight with. And she knows they'll be there for her when things get tough. Like when her partner is murdered and she barely escapes with her own life.

Determined to discover exactly what happened, Izzy's investigation sends her headfirst into a criminal organization, possibly with cops on the payroll--including someone from her own family. With her dead partner's handsome homicide detective brother Ryan shadowing her every move, Izzy's head is spinning. How can she secure justice for her partner when doing so could mean sending someone she loves to prison? And how will she guard her heart when the man she's had a secret crush on for years won't leave her side?

5 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to delay this until I get to reread this book. JUST KIDDING!!!! I want you to know about this beautiful piece of art. But seriously, I'm craving to read it again. And I finished it less than 12 hours ago. As far as Lynette Eason's books go, this is now at the top of my list! (Which is substantial. I've read dozens!) I will admit that this one didn't have as big of a scare factor as they usually do, but I'll attribute that to the fact that I wasn't reading in the privacy of my own room, but rather the noisy environment of the dorm. Along the lines of characters, well, these were some of my absolute favorites. I picked Tabitha St. John as my favorite from this book the first time I saw her. (Wow, I'm really glad only fellow book nerds read what I write. Otherwise I might be considered certifiable....) These characters are... to use a word that has recently become one of my most used, much to both my roommate's and my own annoyance... simply stellar! Did I mention yet that I really just want to open it back up and read my favorite parts again? ;) No, really, the plot was special, the people were special, the place was special, (And I am very glad it was set in Colombia and not Greenville this time!) The bad guys didn't really have a POV in the book, which let me have more time with the ones that I love, and I also thought it was neat how the bad guys were coming from all sides. And then they worked together so how is that even a thing?? It was great, in a "I'm really glad that Izzy and Ryan are heroes" kind of way. How can I make this review say what I want it to say without sounding redundant? Basically, this book is so good that I'm almost (I said almost! And it's a half almost, so there!) afraid that book two can't beat it! (No, that's not really ever happened before for these books, but ya know...) I can't wait to read the next book though, and hope that each of the St. John children gets there own book so that it can be a beautifully long series and I can enjoy my new favorite characters for even longer! Bottom line... You won't regret reading this book.

(Take a peak at this gorgeous cover! Don't you love the colors? One of my favorite Lynette Eason book covers!)

I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Revell publisher.

Now, you leave a comment and let me know what you think, and I will go reread this book! (But for the record, I will read and reply to your comments.)
