When A Heart Stops by Lynette Eason

The highly-anticipated second installment in the Deadly Reunions series, When a Heart Stops will have readers staying up late as they race to the finish to find out what happens. Full of the suspense and romantic tension reader have come to expect from Lynette Eason, When a Heart Stops is intense, emotional and fast-paced.
Spunky and outgoing, nothing much bothers medical examiner Serena Hopkins--except for the thought of falling in love again. But when a serial killer is picking off her former classmates, Serena's life becomes intertwined with her old high school crush, FBI agent Dominic Allen. Is the secret she's keeping putting her next on the killer's hit list? Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?

Here is my review of this wonderful suspense novel:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Lynette Eason and her publisher for sending me a copy of "When a Heart Stops" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Lynette Eason’s “When a Heart Stops” is the second action-packed novel in her Deadly Reunions series.  Serena Hopkins is the medical examiner performing the autopsies on the victims of a copycat serial killer.  FBI Agent Dominic Allen is working the same case from another investigative angle.  When Serena and Dominic meet in the professional arena, the beautiful ME’s childhood crush on her best friend’s brother blossoms into more and it isn’t a one-sided infatuation.  But when it appears that the killer has targeted Serena, the two work feverishly to discover his identity before Serena’s time runs out.

This well-paced, suspenseful romance is a wonderful weekend read!  The reader will enjoy this novel as a standalone book, and those who have enjoyed the first book in the series will be thrilled at the continuing subplot regarding the disappearance of Serena and Alexia’s best friend the night of graduation, and the reunion with characters they’ve come to love in “When the Smoke Clears”.
