Review: Buried Secrets by Irene Hannon

Buried Secrets I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic suspense from Irene Hannon. It is the first in her Men of Valor series and I am already looking forward to the next one!

I thought this was a pretty creative story that had some interesting twists. The villain is definitely smart and creative…someone I would not want to make mad! I really enjoyed the way the book was narrated. The reader is able to see things from the perspective of the two main characters, who are in law enforcement, but every few chapters we get a peek into the mind of the perpetrator of the crime.

The growing attraction and eventual romance between Lisa and Mac was fabulous! The author really knows how to intersperse the suspense with great romantic tension. Another very fun part of the book was meeting Mac’s brothers. I enjoyed the dynamics between the three of them.

Buried Secrets was a great story that I did not want to set down and I definitely recommend it to fans of romantic suspense. (5 stars)

I would like to express my thanks to Baker Publishing for the complimentary copy of this book I received in exchange for an honest review.


Buried Secrets

After seven years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant has hit a wall. Ready for a kinder, gentler life, she takes a job as a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes the resources of her department. A call for assistance brings detective Mac McGregor, an ex-Navy SEAL, to her doorstep. 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.
Master storyteller Irene Hannon is back with an exciting new series featuring former special forces operatives now in the thick of the action in civilian life. Hannon is at the top of her game in this can’t-put-it-down thriller that will have readers up until the wee hours devouring every page.
