Chilling Suspense! -- Thin Ice

There are lots of questions in an Irene Hannon romantic suspense novel -- but never a question about how great it will be.  As I have come to expect in her stories, Thin Ice grabbed me from the very beginning and gripped tighter and tighter to the very end!

Irene Hannon once again writes with class and style.  Her characters and plot are complex and intriguing. She does not tidy up all the problems in quick, unrealistic ways but carries the suspense out to a riveting resolution. Her characters, no matter how good, have realistic flaws that add interest to the story. The romantic element is important and presented in a way that is both exciting and tasteful. In her comments at the end of the book, Irene mentions the experts she has gone to for research, and the benefits of that research show through in her story. And she weaves faith into the story in a very comfortable manner.

In other words, "Wow!"  This is another hit, and I highly recommend Thin Ice for anyone looking for a great story.  I am looking forward to the next book in this series where the third McGregor brother will apparently be the focus.

Thanks to Revell Publishing for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book:

If Ginny Reed is still alive--who is the woman buried in her grave?

After losing her parents and her sister, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Now, life is finally starting to feel normal again--until an envelope addressed in her sister's handwriting arrives in the mail. And the note inside claims she is still alive.

FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case . . . but he's coming up with more questions than answers. Is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game--or the target of a sinister plot? As Lance digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: someone in the shadows has a deadly agenda.

Bestselling author and three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon pulls out all the stops in this high-stakes thriller that races to a bone-chilling finish.
