VOW OF JUSTICE by LYNETTE EASTON, Reviewed by Nicole Cook.

"At the door, he stood to the side, then kicked it in. And came face-to-face with a dead woman."
Vow of Justice, the highly anticipated conclusion to award-winning author Lynette Eason’s Blue Justice series, is a fast-paced romantic suspense novel filled with danger, incredible plot twists, the perfect amount of romance, and of course, those handsome St. John brothers. Lynette Eason is favorite must-read author of many romantic suspense fans, and she does not disappoint in her latest novel.

Vow of Justice can easily be read as a stand-alone novel, but readers will definitely want to read the entire series after falling in love with the heartwarming and beloved St. John family. Each of the siblings have their own story told in previous books in the series. Five of the six St. John siblings are involved in law enforcement, and their mother is the chief of police. The family dynamic between the six St. John siblings and their parents is much like the Reagan family in the TV show Blue Bloods, but Lynette Eason’s Blue Justice series is even better than Blue Bloods!

FBI Special Agent Linc St. John finds himself in extreme danger after the alleged death of his partner Allison Radcliffe. Her undercover assignment for the FBI places her in close quarters with an extremely dangerous and powerful head of the Russian mafia. Secrets from Allie’s past continue to haunt her as she seeks justice for her family after unspeakable crimes were committed against them 15 years ago. Sparks continue to fly between Allie and Linc as their desire to catch a killer puts their own lives in jeopardy, while Allie’s past and present collide in this explosive conclusion to the Blue Justice series.

Lynette Eason seamlessly weaves the characters’ faith into the novel as Allie and Linc’s belief in God remains constant even when they question why He would let bad things happen to good people. The powerful message from a youth camp speaker that Allie recalls from her teenage years stayed with her all these years: “God didn’t promise everything would be perfect, but he did promise that we’d never be alone and God would never give up on us.”

Vow of Justice is highly recommended for readers of romantic suspense, especially those who enjoy books by authors such as Dani Pettrey, Lynn H. Blackburn, Rachel Dylan, Natalie Walters, and Elizabeth Goddard, and fans of the TV show Blue Bloods. Even though the Blue Justice series is regrettably coming to an end, fans of the St. John sibling Derek will rejoice in the following news…. Derek St. John will get his story told in Lynette Eason’s upcoming novella, Lethal Agenda, which is included in her romantic suspense novella collection, Protecting Tanner Hollow, releasing in November 2019.

Additional Quotes:
"Uh-oh?” Sitting in the command van a short distance from the estate, Linc felt his heart take a nosedive. “Allie, there’s no ‘uh-oh’ in undercover work.”

“Do we have a plan?” Allie murmured.
“To not get killed.”
“I’m good with that.”

"She missed him. Missed sharing laughter, movies, and pizza nights.  Missed their in-depth conversations about faith and God. He always made her think. But . . . she had to do what she was meant to do. Take down Nevsky and find the one who’d murdered her family."

Back Cover Blurb:
FBI Special Agent Lincoln St. John is living his own personal nightmare. When the woman he loves, Allison Radcliffe, is killed, he devotes his life to tracking down the killers and making them pay for their crimes. He expected it to be a challenge. What he never expected was to find Allison very much alive shortly after her "murder." As his anger and hurt mix with relief, Linc isn't sure how he's supposed to feel. One thing he does know for sure: he and Allison will have to work together to stop a killer before she dies a second time--this time for good.
