Stress had taken a toll on Lisa Grant’s life so she gave up her detective job in Chicago to work as a police chief in the small town of Carson. The easier pace was doing wonders for her, that is, until a construction crew dug up a human skeleton. Mac McGregor left the SEALs for a quieter kind of job. Now working as a county detective, they send him to Carson to assist Lisa Grant in solving who they found in the unmarked grave. Though their initial meeting doesn't go so well, it's not long before they gain a deep respect for one another along with a deep attraction as well. As they work together to gather information and evidence about what happened all those years ago, it becomes apparent that someone doesn't want the truth to be revealed and is willing to go to any lengths to keep the secrets buried.
This was a great start to Irene Hannon's Men of Valor series. It really was the perfect blend of suspense and romance. One thing I really liked was that even though Lisa was a police chief, she wasn't an 'in-your-face', hard, type woman. She was a nice combination of strong yet soft. Mac was a great guy, the kind of hero I like reading about. He was strong yet tender and comfortable in his own skin. I loved the way he was with Lisa. One thing I thoroughly enjoyed was the McGregor brothers. The interaction and banter between them was so much fun. I am looking forward to getting to know those brothers better. I appreciated that both Mac and Lisa had a personal faith that got them through the difficult things they faced. It was a great reminder that God is in control, of everything whether good or bad. If you enjoy romantic suspense then this is one I would highly recommend. If you don't believe me, head on over to Carson and see just what Buried Secrets will be revealed.
