Don't Look Back

By: Lynette Eason

This novel is book two in the Women of Justice series. In this book we are reintroduced to Jamie Cash who is the sister of Samantha Wolfe. Jamie survived a brutal kidnapping and managed to escape and is just now managing to recover from the ordeal. She is now working as a forensic anthropologist. While working on a case she begins to see similarities between what happened to the victims and what happened to her when she was taken twelve years ago. Could it be that the same person that kidnapped Jamie is at it again and could he be back to finish the job off the one that got away?

In this story we are also introduced to FBI Special Agent Dakota Richards who has had a crush on Jamie since he first meet her. Even though he is not aware of the full tragedy of her past he knows that Jamie is hiding a secret that continues to effect her even know. Being a patient and understanding man he is willing to wait on her to come to terms with his feelings for her and how she feels towards him. He gets even more involved in her life when it turns out that the killer they are tracking is the same man that kidnapped and almost killed Jamie twelve years ago. Can he and Jamie find the killer before he strikes again or will they find out to late who he is in time to stop him from succeeding. Pick up this story and find out.

I really loved reading this book just as much as I loved book one. It was a definite page turner and it keeps you guessing as you turn each page. There are a lot of twist and turns in this story that keep you on the edge of your seat and keeps you turning pages til the very end. I also found myself having great admiration for Jamie and how she refused to let circumstances dictate how she acted throughout the story. She refused to let hate into her heart and instead chose to forgive the man who has haunted her memory and life for twelve years. We can learn a lot from her about letting go of hurts in the past and learning to forgive people no matter how horrible what they did was. Refuse to let them continue to direct your life and choose to live the life you want as if the past never happened.
