Thin Ice, by Irene Hannon

book coverPublisher’s Overview:

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.

My Take:

What can I say about Thin Ice that I’ve not already said about Irene Hannon’s previous novels? Well, it’s the second title in her Men of Valor series focusing on the McGregor brothers. All three have been Special Forces and the oldest two have now made the transition to civilian life. Mac was the focus of Buried Secrets, and now Lance has his chance to shine.

Hannon’s novels have a formula but why fix what isn’t broken? Each series focuses on a particular group of law enforcement officers, and you’ll often find characters from previous series making appearances. Lance’s colleague is Mark Sanders from An Eye for an Eye, which is part of the Heroes of Quantico series. He features heavily so Hannon’s regular readers will get to catch up with him and his wife, Emily. We also get the perspective of the bad guy, so we’re introduced early on to Nathan who appears to be obsessed over a particular woman. This is a man who will truly make you believe in evil. On the flip side, we learn just how much of a hero the youngest McGregor brother is when one of his missions goes badly wrong.

Have you ever told yourself, “Just one more chapter?” I told myself that more than once while reading Thin Ice. I ended up finishing it in one evening because I couldn’t put it down. If that’s not an indication of how good of a book this is, I don’t know what is.

Thank you to Revell for my complimentary copy of Thin Ice, which I received in exchange for my honest review.
