And here’s a behind-the-scenes peek from Lynette:
When I first started the Deadly Reunions series, I just had one sentence.
“Three best friends plus one deadly secret equals a killer high school reunion.”
Not much to work with, I know. But as I brainstormed and worked on the characters, the stories started to unfold and I think they turned out pretty great. WHEN A SECRET KILLS is the final installment in the Deadly Reunions series and, boy, am I glad it’s here! Because of the cliff-hangers in the first two books, I had some pretty irate readers. LOL. But now, they have the third one and all questions should be answered! Finally!
I had a great time doing the research for these books. Since my background isn’t law enforcement I always have to double check with those who fight crime on a daily basis. I have a good friend who is a retired FBI agent and she picked the book apart for me, pointing out things that only those in the profession would know. I followed her suggestions and pray that her advice gives the book an authentic air. J
If you get a chance to read WHEN A SECRET KILLS, I’d love for you to email me and let me know what you thought about it. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org I’m also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/lynette.eason where you can “like” my page and we can stay connected.
Have fun collecting all the clues and good luck!
Lynette’s new release:
She’s come home to put a killer behind bars.
But the killer plans to put her six feet under.
Investigative reporter Jillian Carter knows it’s time to put the past to rest. She’s tired of looking over her shoulder, letting a killer go free. She’s no longer the scared kid who changed her name and disappeared. Now, no matter what the cost, Jillian must do what she is trained to do–find the truth and expose it. And the truth is that Senator Frank Hoffman committed murder ten years ago–and Jillian watched it happen.
When a Secret Kills looks like a great read, doesn’t it?!

But before you go, be sure to enter my personal Bonus Drawing right here!
I am an old man, and I have seen too much.
Too much of this world to endure any more. Too much of the next to want to linger.
And though I have nearly drowned in the glorious visions of those last days, yet I know not when it shall come, nor how many years I must tread this barren earth before all is made new.
There is a Story, you see. And we are still in the midst of it, ever striving to play our roles, battling on for the freedom of hearts and souls and minds yet enslaved by darkness.

I never understood the Sunday School story of the Tower of Babel. In my mind, I pictured this group of well-meaning folks, just trying to build a tower (sounds cool to me), when God hits them with this metaphorical lightning bolt of language-confusion, and they scatter like ants from a stomped-on anthill. Oh, yes, I knew what my teacher told me – they were trying to be like God, it was a prideful thing to do, etc. But I never actually saw that in the story. I only saw people making a tower and God getting mad. Was it the bricks and tar they used, instead of stone and mortar? (The biblical account seems to make a point of mentioning the building materials, which made it seem significant to me.) And when God says that the tower building indicates that “nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them” and so he’ll make it harder, doesn’t that seem a bit spiteful? As though God is jealous of their accomplishments, and wants to trip them up before they outshine him?
It wasn’t until reading it today, with the One True Story in mind, that the lightbulb flashed.
There are so many mythic elements that surround and embody the Flood Story, no wonder it has captured the imagination of the entire human race and been repeated, enlarged, and passed on for millennia.
But the biblical account – is it another myth or is it fact?
I will say this: it’s a strange blend like no other version, with dates and details. Perhaps one of the biblical stories that moved C.S. Lewis to say that “nothing else in all literature was just like this. Myths were like it in one way. Histories were like it in another. But nothing was simply like it.”
Let’s look at just a couple of the larger-than-life elements that will persist through generations…
