Thin Ice - A Book Review

Thin Ice is the first book I have read by Author Irene Hannon and right now I am questioning why it has taken me so long to pick up one of her books.  I thoroughly enjoyed Thin Ice.  It has everything I look for in a suspense novel.  I am not into anything too dark and creepy and this book had the right level of mystery and suspense for me.  The characters are well developed and I really enjoyed the romance that was thrown in.  The romance was not graphic or sexual, there is no profanity and it mentions faith throughout the book.  It really is the perfect compilation of all the things I like in this type of book.  I also loved the setting of this book.  Nothing sweeter than a book being set near your own home town.  The book frequently mentions St. Louis, Potosi and a few other towns that are all very close to where I live.  This detail made it all the more enjoyable for me!

Thin Ice is the second book in The Men of Valor series and you don't need to read the first one to understand this one.  Like I mentioned it's the first book I read by this author so this book was not dependent of the story of the first book.  I definitely will be looking back to the first book for my own enjoyment and I will also be checking out her other novels.


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 that 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.

***Thanks to Revell Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. This sounds really good. I will look for it after I finish what I am reading now. I too do not like dark, creepy books. Love a little suspense though. Thanks for the heads up. Hugs, lJ
