Great romantic suspense -- Tangled Webs
Irene Hannon is one of the "greats" when it comes to romantic suspense, and she has another hit with the conclusion of her Men of Valor series -- Tangled Webs.
The McGregor brothers were awesome heroes in this series -- not perfect heroes, each flawed in different ways, but heroes I would love to have fighting for me -- and the importance of family comes through in this book as it did in the earlier ones. Dana is the perfect "damsel in distress"/but very strong woman for Finn's story. Watching the two of them heal and dare to love as they deal with life and death dangers makes for a great page turner. Irene weaves elements of inspiration into the story in ways that feel very natural and fitting to the situation.
(An interesting side note: It was fun to see some of the action take place in the town of Potosi, where I have lived for the past several years.)
Thanks to the Revell Reads program for providing a copy of Tangled Webs. I was delighted to read the book and share my thoughts through this review.
About the Book:
Finn has packed away his combat instincts--but he may need them again when danger begins to stalk his quiet hideaway . . .
After a disastrous Middle East mission ends his six-year Army Ranger career, Finn McGregor needs some downtime. A peaceful month in the woods sounds like the perfect way to decompress. But peace isn't on the agenda once he crosses paths with publishing executive Dana Lewis, a neighbor who is nursing wounds of her own. Someone seems bent on disrupting her stay in the lakeside cabin she inherited from her grandfather. As Finn and Dana work together to discover who is behind the disquieting pranks, the incidents begin to take on a menacing tone. And when it becomes apparent Dana's foe may have deadly intent, Finn finds himself back in the thick of the action--ready or not.
