When a Heart Stops by Lynette Eason is the second book in the Deadly Reunions series. I read the first book too, you can read the review here. As the series title indicates this is a murder mystery novel.
The main character is Serena, a medical examiner (ME). She generously helped a friend and it seemingly comes back to haunt her…by getting her involved in a serial murder mystery. With the help of detectives and a FBI agent, who also happened to be her teen crush, Serena tries to solve the mystery. I anxiously read chapter after chapter trying to figure out who the murderer was….gradually towards the end I had a couple of ideas as to who it was, especially once Lynette revealed a clue.
I really liked the twists and turns of the story and how it kept me guessing. It was really hard to pick out the killer from among all the characters and I found myself trying to recall what the first book was all about to see if there was a connection between characters that would give me the key to cracking the serial murder case.
As the series title indicates, this is a murder mystery novel. The descriptions of the murder victims is dealt with discreetly, yet Ms. Eason definitely does not skirt around other details. There are not gory details. So if you like a nice clean mystery definitely check out this series.
When a Heart Stops gets two thumbs up from me.
