Review: Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon

Like this guy was a milk drinker.

"I can do tea."

But not by choice, based on his stoic tone.  A gun-brandishing man who kicked down doors to save a woman in distress probably drank black coffee with grounds in the bottom.

About the book:

Finn has packed away his combat instincts--but he may need them again when danger begins to stalk his quiet hideaway . . . 

After a disastrous Middle East mission ends his six-year Army Ranger career, Finn McGregor needs some downtime. A peaceful month in the woods sounds like the perfect way to decompress. But peace isn't on the agenda once he crosses paths with publishing executive Dana Lewis, a neighbor who is nursing wounds of her own. Someone seems bent on disrupting her stay in the lakeside cabin she inherited from her grandfather. As Finn and Dana work together to discover who is behind the disquieting pranks, the incidents begin to take on a menacing tone. And when it becomes apparent Dana's foe may have deadly intent, Finn finds himself back in the thick of the action--ready or not.

Bestselling author and three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon draws readers into a web of psychological suspense where danger lurks in dark corners . . . and keeps them captive until the very last page.

My Review:

Wow!  This third book of author Irene Hannon’s Men of Valor series was an unbelievable read.  I have enjoyed all the brothers’ stories, their comradery, and the obvious tight knit family relationship they enjoy including with their parents.  This was younger brother Finn’s story and one that I have been really anticipating.  Finn, wounded hero, has decided to take himself to a remote cabin to gain some focus and make some important decisions about his life while trying to quiet the demons of his time in combat.  He does not however anticipate meeting Dana Lewis, a publishing editor, also trying to escape the demons of her past in the cabin next door.  From their initial shocking meeting, through their slow burn romantic courtship, and to the explosive climax that all leads to a happily ever after ending (we hope) just like the romance novels Dana edits.  Even the “bad” guys had stories which provided interesting insight.

This was my favorite of the series, and my favorite Hannon novel so far.  I can’t wait to read what she comes up with next.  This whole series goes on the keeper shelf to be savored again and again.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.  I was not required to give a favorable review and all views expressed are my own.
