Referred to as for defense by Lynette Eason
From the top drawer
Called for protection by Lynette Eason is a wonderful Christian tension. It is the second book in the Blue Justice series, but can be read as an independent book.
The series follows the St. John family, all of whom work in the ambulance service. This book focuses on Chloe and her K9 partner Hank. The reader sees the strong bond between the two when they work together to fight crime.
The relationships between the siblings and their parents are strong, loving and with mutual respect. Your love and care extends beyond the family unit to reach the lost and injured. Parents are the perfect example of a marriage in which God is at the center.
Life penetrates. Our past shapes us, but it doesn't have to define us. We may get angry and withdraw from God, but He will never withdraw from us. The anger subsides. "I don't want to be angry anymore … Please help me." If we give God our negative feelings, He can help us deal with them in his strength.
There is the issue of forgiveness. We may not be able to do this in our strength. We may have to rely on God.
The novel deals with the terrible topic of human trafficking. It is modern slavery and there are some scenes that are difficult to read. Sometimes the girls feel abandoned and isolated. Even God seems to be absent. "Where was God in all of this?" God walks next to us in the valley and on the mountain top.
Law enforcement agencies work as a partnership. This reminds the reader that we can live in partnership with God.
I love Lynette Eason's novels. They are exciting from the top drawer and absolutely fabulous.
I got this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.
