Buried Secrets by Irene Hannon (Review)
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.
This is one of my favorite authors and I enjoyed reading this latest romantic suspense book from her. It is the start of a new series called Men of Valor. I loved the two main characters of Lisa and Mac. It felt like the book was more focused on them and the romance than the actual mystery though. It would have been nice for the mystery part to be developed more. It was still interesting with a twist or two. I liked the book and will read the next book in the series that will focus on Mac's two brothers. Recommended.
