“Moving Target” by Lynette Eason is an action-packed and suspenseful story that features two trained operatives who must work through their past traumas and find a way to defeat an enemy with a penchant for playing fatal hunting games. The tension constantly ramps up as the convalescing Quinn Holcombe and former FBI agent Maddy McKay fight for survival, even as Maddy tries to restore Quinn’s relationship with God. I was not expecting the strong religious overtones, which distracted me a bit from the overall story, but I did enjoy the cat and mouse maneuverings for the most part. Some of the twists were a little far-fetched for me, but they do add flavor. There is a fair amount of violence and deftly portrayed creepiness to the tale so one might not want to read it alone late at night! This story can be read as a stand-alone tale, but it has plenty of intriguing hints that indicate there are other exciting adventures involving these folks and makes me want to read those as well.
This Christian romantic suspense is book 3 in the ‘Elite Guardians’ series and follows bodyguard Maddy McKay and detective Quinn Holcombe as they fight to survive against an adversary who is fond of playing “The Most Dangerous Game.” Their skills and faith will be needed to emerge victorious.
When Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe don't show up for Quinn's surprise birthday party, his friends know that something is very wrong. Their search turns up little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy just decided to take off for a long overdue vacation. But it soon becomes apparent that they did not leave of their own accord.
Maddy awakens in a cement room with no idea where she is. But it's not long before she realizes she's in the clutches of a madman exacting revenge by hunting. His prey of choice? Humans. Now Maddy and Quinn must run for their lives, hoping to find their killer before the next game begins. Because if they don't win this game, they die.
Fast, furious, and flirty, Lynette Eason's relentless suspense barely gives her readers time to catch their breath in this third thrilling installment of the Elite Guardians series.
