In No One to Trust by Lynette Eason, Summer Abernathy woke up one morning to find herself being threatened by a mob boss demanding she return the laptop and flash drive her husband stole from them. In that morning, everything she thought she knew about her husband changed immediately. The book follows Summer and her husband as they try to repair their relationship and also stay safe and hidden from the “bad guys” while they’re in the WITSEC program.
I really liked this book, and the focus on the witness protection program. There were many characters, both good and bad, that played a role in Summer and her husband, Kyle’s, journey throughout the book. There was also a lot of attention paid to the issue of forgiveness. I empathized with Summer because she was struggling with her husband’s lies to her. She had conflicting emotions because she still loved him, but she questioned their entire relationship. This relationship and Summer’s response seemed very realistic, and that made me really like the characters and root for them throughout the story. You could tell that both Summer and Kyle had a strong faith, but they still struggled with some aspects of their faith, which is very realistic.
