Well, hello, first book of the new year. That’s what “Thin Ice” by Irene Hannon was for me.
Men of Valor is a series worth reading because the characters are so well developed. Personally, I love that the main characters in the series are brothers who are the good guys – good guys with military and law enforcement experience and moral character demonstrated by their professional and personal decisions.
The world needs more of these men, so I’m glad there are stories about them! (I previously reviewed the first Men of Valor installment, “Buried Secrets,” as well as other books by Hannon – “Hope Harbor” and “Deceived.”)
“Thin Ice” is the second in the Men of Valor series and focuses on Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator turned FBI special agent. He meets Christy Reed, a former figure skater, when he begins investigating whether her sister actually died in a house fire just months after he parents died in a car accident.
Lance reopens Christy sister’s case and find surprising answers and love, of course. These romantic suspense novels have some predictability but Irene Hannon does a good job of weaving unique stories together in a way that keeps readers coming back for more.
Honestly, I found the suspect’s motive unbelievable, but, of course, that meant I had trouble figuring out exactly where the mystery was going.
Unrelated, some of the figure skating references made me want to watch “The Cutting Edge.” Toe pick!
