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.
Absolutely devoured this book. Lisa Grant and Mac McGregor don't hit it off right away, but then again they met over a skeleton. Lisa is the police chief and Mac is the detective County sent over to help her with the case. Together they work to figure out who the skeleton belongs to and why it is buried. Their mutual attraction cannot be denied but it can be put on hold until the case is over. Only problem with that is there is a certain someone who doesn't want the case to ever be solved and is willing to do anything to keep it a 'cold case'.
Wow, I do love the wonderful mix Ms. Hannon puts into her books. There is suspense, romance, mystery, faith and more. Lisa is a strong lady. She has to be to have been through what she has and still be the chief of police. More than that, she is competent, caring and respected both as a woman and a professional. Mac is a former SEAL who wants to settle down and lead a quieter life. I loved how he didn't hide his feelings from Lisa but wasn't forcing himself on her either. His brothers were some of my favorite characters! Also loved Lisa's mom.
Absolutely a 5/5 for me. Loved this book.
