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?
I love reading and sharing my latest book with readers like you. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I am friends with many authors and also have a client relationship with many of them. This book may be one I received from a current or future client. Regardless of my relationship with the author, this review reflects my honest opinions of the book. For more information view my full disclaimer policy.
Oath of Honor by Lynette Eason instantly hooked me as we met police officer Isabelle St. John, who loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. Unfortunately, her partner gets murdered, and she barely escapes with her own life. On top of all that, Izzy's investigation leads her into a criminal organization, possibly with cops on the payroll–including someone from her own family.
Lynette Eason is an author I've heard about for a while now, but one I never took the time to try, which I'm currently regretting. With Oath of Honor being the first book in this series, it seemed like a logical time to try one of her books.
I particularly found the family dynamics interesting in this story. Izzy's mother is the chief of police at her department. Of course, this made for some interesting conversations between Izzy and her mother, especially when Izzy's investigation shows members of her family as possible suspects.
This book was full of suspense, held my attention, and kept me reading more. As is typical with many of these types of books, there is some romance involved. In Izzy's case, it is her dead partner's brother who is a handsome homicide detective named Ryan.
This book did an excellent job of filling my craving for a suspenseful story and was a nice introduction to Eason's writing. Now I'm looking forward to the release of Called to Protect.
