In Harm's Way by Irene Hannon

Book description:

How can she expect anyone to believe her--when she can hardly believe it herself?

FBI special agent Nick Bradley has seen his share of kooks during his fifteen years with the Bureau. But Rachel Sutton is an enigma. She seems normal when she shows up at his office--until she produces a tattered Raggedy Ann doll and tells him about a strange feeling of terror it gives her when she touches it. Nick dismisses her, only to stumble across a link between the doll and an abducted child, setting in motion a chain of events that uncovers startling connections--and puts Rachel's life on the line.

Filled with palpable suspense and heartwarming romance, In Harm's Way is the final installment of the thrilling Heroes of Quantico series.

My review:

I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the Heroes of Quantico series, and this third and final book in the series was no different. I will admit I was questioning about the part where the main character, Rachel, was experiencing a feeling of terror when she held the doll, but there was a neat explanation for that that did not involve any weird stuff.

I like it when the same characters appear in a few books, and this series has that. Nick, the hero of this story, appears in the first two books, and the 2 main guys from those books also appear in this.

Irene Hannon's writing style is very enjoyable, and does a great job on character development. This is romatic mystery/suspense, but is something men and women should both enjoy. I highly recommend the whole Heroes of Quantico series, and they could be read out of order, though I recommend starting with the first book.

Nice review!

I really enjoyed Against All Odds. Irene Hannon is like another Dee Henderson!

My one disappointment was the purely physical attraction between the two and some of the descriptions. I found myself saying “oh, come on. This is cheesy.” It rankled me throughout the book to an small extent as well. However, the relationship really developed well throughout the novel – much more in-depth than many characters you find in novels.
