Men of Valor #3

Cover Art 
Finn has packed away his combat instincts--but he may need them again when danger begins to stalk his quiet hideaway . . .
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.

Meet the Author:

Irene Hannon is a bestselling, award-winning author who took the publishing world by storm at the tender age of 10 with a sparkling piece of fiction that received national attention.…maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. But she was one of the honorees in a complete-the-story contest conducted by a national children’s magazine. And she likes to think of that as her “official” fiction-writing debut!
Since then, she has written more than 50 romantic suspense and contemporary romance/women’s fiction novels. She is a seven-time finalist for and three-time winner of the RITA award—the “Oscar” of romance fiction—and a member of the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. Her books have also won a Daphne du Maurier award, two Carol awards, three HOLT Medallions, a National Readers’ Choice award, a Retailers Choice award, two Booksellers’ Best awards and two Reviewers’ Choice awards from RT Book Reviews magazine. One of her novels was also named by Booklist as a top 10 inspirational fiction books of 2011. In addition, she is a two-time Christy award finalist.
Irene, who holds a B.A. in psychology and an M.A. in journalism, juggled two careers for many years until she gave up her executive corporate communications position with a Fortune 500 company to write full time. She is happy to say she has no regrets!
In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, gardening and singing.  A trained vocalist, she has sung the leading role in numerous musicals, including “South Pacific,” “Brigadoon,” “Oklahoma” “The King and I” and “Anything Goes.” She is also a soloist at her church.
When not otherwise occupied, Irene and her husband enjoy traveling, Saturday mornings at their favorite coffee shop and spending time with family. They make their home in Missouri.

My Thoughts:

Absolutely loved this book.
This book is the third book in Irene Hannon's Men of Valor series which centers around Mac, Lance and Finn McGregor. Even though this book is part of a series it's definitely a stand alone.
 In this story we meet Finn the youngest of the three brothers and the most broken because his years in the military left both visible and invisible scars. He has spent weeks in rehab, but needs to move forward with his career outside of the military. His plans to spend a couple of weeks in a peaceful in cabin next to the Mark Twain National Forest in rural Missouri was interrupted by screams in the night. His military training kicks in and he ends up at a cabin next to Lewis Lake where Dana Lewis is experiencing one of many nightmares. Even though their first meeting is less than desirable the sparks ignite. Finn sees that Dana is haunted by wounds of her own.  Dana feels safe with Finn.  She hasn't felt safe in a long time and truthfully may never. As their friendship develops so does the plot.  It's an a thrilling adventure. 
 This book contains engaging characters and a plot that quickly pulled me in and kept me captivated until the end. . It has elements of turmoil, suspense, friendship, love and faith.
This is a book I would recommend to anyone who loves suspense.
I received this book from the publisher as part of their book bloggers program. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
