Book Review: When the Smoke Clears by Lynette Eason

Alexia Allen hasn't been home in 10 years, after all she did not leave much behind. But when she is ordered to take time off after an accident during her work as a firefighter, Alexia decides to go to her high school renunion. The problem is, the accident turns out to be not so much an accident and danger follows Alexia to her hometown. Now not only does Alexia need to face her past and the pain it holds, but also a very real dager facing her in the present.  Can she figure out who is after her before it is too late?

I really enjoy Eason's suspense writing. She usually has me turning pages from the very beginning - starting off with action from the get-go. I will say, that with so much danger facing the main character in this book, it's a little unrealistic that she escaped it every time, but it makes for a good fiction read all the same :-) So far I have guessed the bad guy in all of Eason's stories, but that almost makes it more nail-biting when you know have a good guess what is coming. Good ending - I wasn't expecting that, but I won't elaborate so I don't spoil the ending - you will just have to read it for yourself ;-)
