From the captivating design on the cover of the book to the very last page of the epilogue, Irene Hannon had me fully entranced in Buried Secrets, the first book of her Men of Valor series.
"The queen of inspirational romantic suspense" (a title I have seen attributed to Irene) never disappoints! The action begins in the prologue to this story and continues at an engaging pace throughout. The quality of research that Irene does into law enforcement practices and other aspects of her stories provides a sense of authenticity that makes you believe you are following stories straight out of today's news.
An added bonus that you can't get in current news stories, though, is the chance to share in the personal lives of everyone involved. Lisa Grant and Mac McGregor, as well as the other characters, are
developed with a depth that brings them alive and draws you completely
into their stories. The romance and suspense work together for a page-turning experience.
I highly recommend Buried Secrets to fans of great inspirational romantic suspense. I look forward to learning more about the McGregor brothers as this series continues.
Thanks to Revell Publishers for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
They both wanted quieter, safer lives.
But crime never sleeps . . .
and killers keep killing.
years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant is ready for the
kinder, gentler life of a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a
human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes
department resources. Enter ex-Navy SEAL Mac McGregor, the detective
sent by the county to assist on the case. As they work to solve the
mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone
doesn't want this dead person telling any tales--and will stop at
nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.
