After a disastrous Middle East mission ends his six-year Army Ranger career, Finn McGregor needs some downtime. A peaceful month in the woods sounds like the perfect way to decompress. But peace isn't on the agenda once he crosses paths with publishing executive Dana Lewis, a neighbor who is nursing wounds of her own. Someone seems bent on disrupting her stay in the lakeside cabin she inherited from her grandfather. As Finn and Dana work together to discover who is behind the disquieting pranks, the incidents begin to take on a menacing tone. And when it becomes apparent Dana's foe may have deadly intent, Finn finds himself back in the thick of the action--ready or not.
Bestselling author Irene Hannon draws readers into a web of psychological suspense where danger lurks in dark corners . . . and keeps them captive until the very last page.
I love Irene Hannon and I've read almost 20 of her books but this series just might be my favorite.
We got to know Finn a little in his brothers' books but it was great to finally get in his head. I admired the way that he fought and worked as hard as he could to recover from his injuries rather than just wallowing in the fact that his military career was over. I also loved how, like his brothers, he had heroism and being a gentleman built into him. He was willing to run headlong into possible danger without a second thought if he thought someone was in jeopardy. And he was always very respectful and kind to those around him.
Dana was great heroine caring and quiet yet not afraid to take a stand when the need arose. She'd had a traumatizing experience but she didn't let it break her, as hard as it tried. Both Finn and Dana were in recovery mood and trying to figure out their next steps and they were exactly what each other needed. I loved how Finn kept showing up with little excuses and coming up with ways for them to spend time together. Their whole romance was adorable.
The suspense side of the story was a little bit different in that the bad guy really wasn't a bad guy, he just got in over his head. I even found myself feeling sorry for him. There was a second "villain" who definitely fit that title more than the other guy but he wasn't as much the main focus, at least at first. But the author wove it all together brilliantly and I found myself devouring the pages to find out what was happening.
It was great seeing more of Mac and Lance and I absolutely loved when all three McGregor brothers were together! They had me laughing so much! They're great on their own but the three of them play off each other so well!
I'm sad to see this series end but I loved every page of it and I can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next!
