Thin Ice (Men of Valor, Book 2) by Irene Hannon {Romantic Suspense Review}

Men or Valor, Book 2
Romantic Suspense


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.


My Thoughts

Thin Ice is one of those creepy stalker murder mystery type of stories that makes you wonder about the strangers around you. The opening scene has Christy Reeed showing up at her sister's house only to find it engulfed in flames with her sister presumably still inside. 

The story then fast forwards two months and we discover that the body in the burned out house was not her sister after all. Even though Christy has been warned not to contact authorities she does and FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor begins to sift through the mounting evidence surrounding her parents death and her sister's kidnapping. 

Pretty much from the start you know who the suspect is. Irene Hannon flips between telling the story from Christy's perspective and that of the perpetrator. What you don't know is the why. And that is what makes this a spine tingling read. 

In the midst of all the danger is a budding attraction between Christy and the handsome Agent McGregor. Of course it wouldn't be proper for them to have a relationship during the investigation . . . but when everything gets settled the chemistry between the two begs to be explored. 

While this book is part of a series the story stands on its own. The characters and situations from the first book are mentioned so I wouldn't read them out of order, but it would be okay to read this book without reading the first. I'm looking forward to reading this book with my book club and also reading the third book in the series. There's a teaser introduction to book three at the end of this book. Be forewarned, it's good and will make you impatient for the rest of the story.
