From Publishers Weekly
Hannon continues her Men of Valor series with Lance, another McGregor brother, leaving his Delta Force unit to become a rookie FBI agent in St. Louis. Christy Reed, a former competitive ice-skater, has lost her entire family; her parents in a car wreck, and her only sibling in a house fire. Out of nowhere Christy receives a note, in her sister's handwriting, which indicates Ginny may have met a bleaker fate. Despite a warning not to contact authorities, Christy calls the FBI and Lance fields the assignment. From their first meeting, Lance and Christy's mutual attraction threatens to distract them from finding the truth about Ginny. While Lance struggles with some misplaced personal guilt, the characters are notably one-dimensional. Lance is the perfect hero: kind, determined, and protective. Christy is the archetype of a damsel in distress: vulnerable, beautiful, and innocent. In contrast, the utterly unsympathetic antagonist is the epitome of sheer evil. While the romance is predictable, a few unforeseen turns maintain the suspense for most of the story. A standalone, Hannon also whets readers' appetites for the next book with a significant introduction to youngest brother Finn McGregor. (Jan.)\n
From the Inside Flap
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.

This was a great suspense novel with a twist plot at the end. I loved the development of Lance & Christy's love story. It was fun seeing characters from earlier books pop into this book. Though this can be read as a standalone, I loved seeing earlier story lines developed into this novel. Great book. Quick read. Hard to put down! A great way to start the new year :-)
Irene Hannon has a deft touch with the macabre nature of suspense and mystery. Her latest foray into the genre is Thin Ice, releasing this month. Irene constructs twists and turns only the most adept mystery solvers will penetrate, all the while giving us flawed but believable characters and romance.
Thin Ice is the second in the Men of Valor series whose heroes are ex-special forces guys now working to save civilians from villains. Thin Ice introduces us to Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force officer, who carries deep guilt from his last mission. Enter Christy Reed, former Olympic ice skating star now teaching skating. Christy, wracked with grief over the loss of her parents, saw her sister’s house burn to the ground with Ginny in it.
Christy felt she was handling the tragedies fairly well until she receives a letter from beyond the grave: a letter from Ginny that seems to indicate she is still alive but in the hands of a kidnapper. Despite warnings to the contrary, Christy turns to the FBI for assistance. Special Agent McGregor lands the case as his first with the Bureau.
Lance, assigned to open the cold case, comes up with more questions than answers. Ginny seemed to have no enemies. Christy’s parent’s auto accident may be murder. Could Christy be the target instead of her family? As they follow slim leads and faint trails, the kidnapper/murder creeps closer.
I could not put this book down. Page after page of drama and excitement and twists and turns. And an ever-building attraction between Christy and Lance. The denouement is exciting. You’ll be cheering Lance and his cohorts on and shivering with Christy as the evil advances toward her. Five stars! Well-done, Irene! Thin Ice is a winner!
