Oath of Honor by Lynette Eason


Oath of Honor is the first of the Blue Justice series. This book introduces us to the St. John family. In this book, we follow Izzy ‘s story and getting to know the interesting cast of characters while they try to solve a murder (which is awfully close to home for her and her family) while watching each other’s back, made for a page-turner and many twists and turns in the plot. I totally did not know was behind it all right up until the end. Lynette Eason unpacks the mystery as it unfolds and slowly all the puzzle pieces fall into place, but not without a few surprises. I would have liked to have gotten to know her brother, Derek, a bit more, but I am sure we will do so in one of the upcoming books. I have something to look forward to. Izzy wrestles with the challenges she is facing in the present, but she fights against past fears too and has to push through them in order to overcome what she now faces. In short, I loved the action and adventure in this book, but what stood out to me most in this story, and what made the action and adventure so much more …well…..tense, are the relationships between the characters. Strong friendships pull these characters through some difficult times.

I look forward to the next book in the series, Called to Protect.

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?

With her signature fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, Lynette Eason invites readers into a captivating new series where justice is a family affair.
