When a Heart Stops by Lynette Eason

Book Description:
Spunky and outgoing, nothing much bothers medical examiner Serena Hopkins--except for the thought of falling in love again. But when a serial killer is picking off her former classmates, Serena's life becomes intertwined with her old high school crush, FBI agent Dominic Allen. Is the secret she's keeping putting her next on the killer's hit list? Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?
Intense, emotional, and fast-paced, "When a Heart Stops" will have readers up late as they race to the finish to find out what happens.

My Thoughts:
Loved it!!!  Serena is a medical examiner that isn't easily bothered, but when people she went to school with start getting murdered, she certainly is!  Dominic is now an FBI agent and is working the case, but when they were younger he was Serena's crush.  Now the case turns out to be a serial killer and Serena may have some crucial information but can she trust Dominic?
We got to know Serena and Dominic really well in the book.  Serena is a great lady.  She is strong, sure of herself and very 'in control'...for the most part.  Dominic has the here to save the day type character and is solid.  The author does a wonderful job of drawing you into the storyline then keeping you guessing throughout.  I loved the faith in the book didn't seem forced or 'stale' but fit perfectly into the story. 
This is a 5/5.  Wonderful suspense with a creepy note in there for edge of your seat!
