Lynette Eason has done it again with “Moving Target,” the third novel in her Elite Guardians series.“Moving Target

Eason masterfully builds tension throughout her novels, and “Moving Target” is no different. It’ll keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Tensions ratchet sky high as Maddy and Quinn work to uncover the identity of the madman targeting them.

Eason has done a wonderful job of continuing to flesh out the characters she created in her previous novels.

One thing I really love about this series is that while the individual books interconnect, they can be read as stand-alones, as well.

Each book focuses on a different set of characters, but they are reoccurring throughout the series as secondary characters.

And while readers will have a deeper understanding of the characters if they read these stories in order, I accidentally picked up the second book, “Without Warning,” and had no problem jumping in from there — although I intend to go back and read the first book, “Always Watching,” sometime in the near future.

In “Moving Target,” Eason handles the topic of faith in a very organic manner, a strong message that doesn’t hit readers over the head, but is more nuanced.

The characters have realistic struggles with their faith, as those who have faced hardship in their lives often do.

Readers who enjoy romantic suspense, such as fans of Dani Pettrey, Dee Henderson, Irene Hannon and Terri Blackstock, definitely should give Lynette Eason a try — she is sure to set their hearts racing, too.

I give “Moving Target” 4.5 out of 5 stars.
