Bad things happen when image is everything. And criminals whose motive is image can be the hardest to catch. When small-town police chief Lisa Grant is called on to uncover the secrets that were buried with a human being whose skeleton was discovered on a new construction site, she knows that solving the obviously-very-old case could be impossible. Ex-Navy SEAL Max McGregor, now a county detective sent to assist her, will make the challenge more interesting. But neither member of this team imagines just how determined their nemesis is.
I had fun reading this first book in a new series by Irene Hannon. The growing relationship between Max and Lisa, both ready for less stress in their careers in hopes of finding a life companion and starting a family, was sweet. The look into the twisted mind of a criminal with no conscience was intriguing from a psychological point of view and tragic in consideration of all harm caused. It’s a case of worship of self taken to a deadly extreme.
Fans of romantic suspense will like reading Buried Secrets and look forward to the next book in the Men of Valor series. I thank Revell for sending me a complimentary copy of Book One to review.
