AUTHOR: Irene Hannon
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.
Multi-layered characters with secrets and weaknesses as well as strengths, small town setting, and a cold-case murder mystery—all the makings of a great thriller. And Buried Secrets is a fantastic read. I couldn’t put it down unless forced to, and when I turned the last page, my only thought was, “Wow!”
Lisa Grant is an intriguing heroine with her issues and yearnings, and Mac McGregor would stir any woman’s heart. Strong, steady, and handsome, he has a few secrets of his own. Watching them work together to solve the murder kept me entranced. Ms. Hannon’s secondary characters are all well-drawn, too, making each scene realistic and drawing me deeper and deeper into the story.
Buried Secrets is a fast-paced, enthralling thriller, and it almost deserves five stars. One minor plot point regarding diabetes didn’t ring true for me, so I give Buried Secrets four and a half stars.
