Thin Ice by Irene Hannon

If Ginny Reed is still alive--who is the woman buried in her grave?

After losing her parents and her sister, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Now, life is finally starting to feel normal again--until an envelope addressed in her sister's handwriting arrives in the mail. 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. Is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game--or the target of a sinister plot? As Lance digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: someone in the shadows has a deadly agenda.

Bestselling author and three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon pulls out all the stops in this high-stakes thriller that races to a bone-chilling finish.

My review:
  Ever since the first time I read one of her books, Irene Hannon has been one of my favorite authors. I have never been disappointed in anything I have read by her, and this book is no exception to that statement.

  Thin Ice is book two in the Men of Valor Series, each book centered on one of three brothers in the McGregor family. This book follows the middle brother, Lance; former Delta Force operator turned FBI agent. I enjoyed the first book a lot, but this one was even better than the first.

  There was the added element of the three brothers all making another appearance in some fashion, plus this book was even more suspenseful and hard to put down than the first book was. I found myself thankful the weather wasn't conducive to going to church so I didn't have to put the book down.

  The book has a lot of surprises, and a great plot. Throw in very likable characters and some romance, and it is a book to make any reader happy. Hannon isn't afraid to bring God into her books, and she addressed a couple of issues in the book that can help and encourage without being preachy. The ending was a bit predictive, but still very climatic and suspenseful; and was a great ending to a great book. Definitely worthy of five stars.
