Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


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? 
Intense, emotional, and fast-paced, "When a Heart Stops" will have readers up late as they race to the finish to find out what happens.


My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: Oh how I adored this novel! This was easily my favorite in the series. Serena Hopkins drew me in right form the get-go. 

Eason crafted one of the best mysteries I've ever read in this one. It kept me guessing. I stayed up way too late reading it and then when I finished it I had to go back and reread some parts.

The mystery in this one will leave you breathless. I can't begin to describe how amazing this novel truly was. This right here is why Christian romantic suspense is my favorite genre. You have to give this one a try.

The characters are well-developed, the writing fast-paced and action packed, the blend between romance, faith, and mystery is at its perfeciton, and the plot will suck you in. 

So why 5 stars?  I absolutely loved everything about this book. I wouldn't change a thing and that's rare. 

In Summary: Easily one of my favorite novels of all time. With this novel, Eason has moved to one of my favorite authors.

Warnings/Side-notes: None, safe for readers of all ages. 

The Wrap-up: Needless to say I will be reading this novel again over and over. It was beautifully written. Seriously go out and read this book right now!

Love,
