Fall Reads: Thin Ice by Irene Hannon



Revell; 394 pages; $14.99; Amazon
A few months ago, I had promised myself that I would attempt to get caught up on a several ARC that have piled up on my desk collecting dust. Most of them had been read, but I hadn't gotten around to writing the actual reviews for them. Now it's nearly Thanksgiving and I still haven't gotten around to them yet. I'm going to try to make it my #1 priority to get these reviews written and posted before Christmas!

Which title am I going to start with first?

The book is titled Thin Ice, book 2 in the Men of Valor series by author Irene Hannon.

The plot centers on Christy Reed, a young woman who receives an envelope address to her in her sister's handwriting. She had lost both her parents and sister, and had just started to pick up the pieces when this envelope arrived. Inside that envelope is a note that claims her sister is still alive.

Christy's only hope for solving the mystery is with FB Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force Operator who is assigned to reopen her sister's case. Sadly, the further they investigate, the more questions they come up with than actual answers.


Final Thoughts: Good mystery novels are hard to come by nowadays, but good or bad, I do read quite a bit of them. I had read book one in the series "Buried Secrets," last year, so naturally I wanted to read Thin Ice as well.

For me, I was hooked into the story right from the beginning. The author does a good job creating a suspenseful plot with intriguing dialogue and likeable characters. Despite being published under Revell, which is a Christian publisher, I never felt the story had a religious feel to it.

Overall, I thought Thin Ice was a fast-paced mystery with several twists and turns. 😊
