Expertly crafted story

Irene Hannon is one of the best at romantic suspense and Thin Ice is an expertly crafted story that will keep you turning the pages. It was well-paced with plenty of twists and it kept me intrigued until the end. I loved that the hero was a brand new FBI agent on his first case. It was an interesting perspective to see him learning the ropes through this investigation. I liked having the bad guy's point of view as well as the main characters. Even knowing the bad guy's name, there were still the unanswered questions of why he's targeting Christy and how he's connected to her, so the story stayed unpredictable.
Plot: Christy Reed's sister Ginny was killed in a house fire just a few months after their parents died in a car accident. Six months later she receives a letter, addressed in Ginny's handwriting claiming her sister is still alive. When Christy seeks help from the FBI, she contacts Lance McGregor, who's just joined the bureau after ending his career in Special Forces. It quickly becomes apparent that Christy has a stalker who will stop at nothing to get his revenge.
I'd highly recommend reading this book if you enjoy romantic suspense. The second book in the Men of Valor series, it can stand alone, but you'll probably want to read Buried Secrets first. I've enjoyed the close knit family of McGregor brothers and how the stories are tied together, so we get a better introduction to Finn's life and can anticipate his adventures coming up next.
