Buried Secrets by Irene Hannon

About the Book
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.

Phew, what a read. Irene Hannon’s Buried Secrets, the first in her Men of Valor series, kept me on edge from start to finish. As expected in one of Hannon’s romantic suspense novels, the drama and suspense steadily build with riveting action, well-timed discoveries and sweetly developing romance. The main characters, Lisa Grant and Mac McGregor, are admirable and likeable in their passion for their jobs and pursuit of justice, while the villain is easily disliked - and even a bit scary - yet conniving, thorough and smart. It is a read that fans of romantic suspense - and especially of Irene Hannon - will not want to miss - though it may lead to a sleepless night or two. Still, I heartily recommend it and cannot wait to revisit this series with book two.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Buried Secrets and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
