After losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail--addressed in her sister's handwriting. And the note inside claims she is still alive.
FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case, but he's coming up with more questions than answers. If Ginny Reed is still alive--who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game--or the target of a sinister plot? As he digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: whoever is behind the bizarre ruse has a deadly agenda.
Bestselling author and two-time Christy Award finalist Irene Hannon warms readers' hearts as they root for a romance between Lance and Christy, but she pulls out all the stops as this high-stakes thriller chills to the bone in a race to the finish.
Thin Ice is a sweet romantic mystery that had me guessing until it was laid out for me. I found all of the characters easy to engage with and Irene Hannon did a fantastic job of bringing out my emotions in response to their personalities and situations. I always have a favorite character... Mevlida is beaten down, misguided, and yet brave. She stole my heart.
Thin Ice is the second book in the Men of Valor series. I had not read the first book Buried Secrets. Fortunately, Thin Ice is able to stand completely on its own. I didn't feel as if there were any gaps in the story that would have required reading Buried Secrets in order to understand the story. I'm sure that Buried Secrets would be as well worth reading as Thin Ice.
In closing, I must say, poor mouse!
