About the Book
She won't give up ...

Erica James has spent the past three years as a skip tracer, hunting down others and hoping one day it will lead to her kidnapped daughter. Now she has a new suspect—Max Powell's missing sister. Max, a private investigator, has found evidence that connects the two missing girls, and together, he and Erica search for answers. The closer they get to finding answers, the stronger their feelings for each other become. But the kidnapper will stop at nothing—including murder—to keep them from finding Erica's daughter.

My Thoughts
Two-hundred-and-twenty-four pages isn't a ton of space to develop a full story, complete with a full-blown mystery and romance. Lynette Eason managed to pull it off, though, and Hide and Seek is an enjoyable story. While I figured out earlier in the book who the kidnapper was, I enjoyed trying to figure out why he/she kidnapped Erica's daughter. Erica and Max made for an interesting combination. They both have quite a few family problems, and their relationship just complicates things even further. As their relationship progressed, I was happy to see how they each grew and became better people. The ending is sweet, and the epilogue made me wish for more stories about Erica and Max so we can see how their relationship continues to grow. [4 stars]

I received a free temporary copy of this book from Love Inspired via Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.

About the Author
Lynette Eason grew up in Greenville, SC. Her home church, Northgate Baptist, had a tremendous influence on her during her early years. She credits Christian parents and dedicated Sunday School teachers for her acceptance of Christ at the tender age of eight. Even as a young girl, she knew she wanted her life to reflect the love of Jesus.

Lynette attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, and then moved to Spartanburg, SC, to attend Converse College where she obtained her masters degree in education. A couple of years later, she met the boy next door, Jack Eason—and married him. Jack is the executive director of The Sound of Light Ministries and is her Web and marketing guy. Lynette and Jack have two amazing children. She and Jack are members of New Life Baptist Fellowship Church where Jack serves as the worship leader and Lynette does whatever she's asked to do—like take pictures for the church directory.

Lynette loves to ice skate, bowl, walk on the beach, visit the mountains of Asheville, NC, watch American Idol, Law and Order, A & E channel and surf the Web—and of course, read. She is often found online and loves to talk writing with anyone who's interested. She gives God the glory for giving her the talent and desire to spin stories that bring readers to the edge of their seat, but most importantly, to the throne of Christ.
