Christy Reed had experienced extreme heartache, first at the loss of her sister and then the loss of her parents. When she finally starts to gain some ground in feeling somewhat normal, she receives an envelope addressed to her in her sister's writing. A note inside lead her to believe her sister was still alive and if Christy wanted to see her again she was to await instructions and not contact police. Knowing she couldn't handle this on her own she reluctantly contacts the FBI. Lance McGregor was once part of Delta Force but he is now a special agent for the FBI. His first real case comes when he receives a call from Christy asking for his help in discovering the truth about her sister. He agrees to help her but instead of finding answers he's plagued with more questions; ones he's determined to answer, especially since Christy was quickly becoming more than just a job. As Lance continues to investigate, he soon realizes that something a lot bigger than he ever imagined is going on, something that will draw on all of his Delta Force experience to handle.
This was another great romantic suspense from Irene Hannon. From beginning to end, you'll find yourself totally immersed in the story and trying to fit together the clues along with the lead couple. In Buried Secrets (book one in the Men of Valor series) we were introduced to the McGregor brothers (Mac, Lance and Finn) but the focus was on Mac McGregor. Thin Ice focuses on Lance McGregor although the other brothers are very involved as well, which I loved. Lance was such a great guy but had trouble getting past something that happened while he was in Delta Force. Christy made a great leading lady. She was gracious and kind, and despite the terrible heartache she was dealing with, her simple faith in God shined through, which helped Lance out. Actually, I loved the way they helped each other and even though they thought it prudent to wait until the case was closed to explore their feelings, there was lots of romantic tension between them, which is always a plus in my book. The secondary characters were very well drawn and really added a lot to the story. Finn had a pretty big roll and it will leave you anxious to read his story! I know I can't wait. If you enjoy a great romantic suspense with real life characters, a creepy villain and some great romantic tension then this is one you won't want to miss. It's one time where I would highly recommend skating on 'Thin Ice'.
