After seven years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant has hit a wall. Ready for a kinder, gentler life, she takes a job as a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes the resources of her department. A call for assistance brings detective Mac McGregor, an ex-Navy SEAL, to her doorstep. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn’t want this dead person telling any tales–and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.

My Thoughts

This is the first novel in the Men of Valor series. I appreciate this author presenting her faith through her characters. If you enjoy a romantic mystery, you will just love this novel. 

Although the characters were well developed, I found the dialogue a bit predictable at times.  The plot was similar to popular weekly TV series. 

If you are looking for a mystery with a love story intertwined into the plot, this book is for you.  Irene Hannon is an acclaimed author who has proven her talent over time and recognized by her numerous accolades.  Visit her site to learn more about her books, projects, and life.
