Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon

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.

My Thoughts:
This was one of those books you just don't want to put down. There was a sweetness about it, amidst the mystery and suspense. It was also one of those where you know who the bad guy is, but they don't, so you are waiting for it to play out. 

The man of valor is Finn McGregor, brother to the men in the other books. He is ex-army ranger, struggling with some PTSD and a leg injury. Currently he is on vacation, alone, in a cabin in a somewhat secluding area. His neighbor Dana Lewis, has had some traumatic experiences of her own. She has chosen to remove herself from big city life for a while and get away to her grandfather's cabin by the lake for some much needed R&R and time alone. 

But time alone is not on the agenda for these two. Mysterious things are happening, vandalism, trespassing, and strange occurrences, that keep them connected and Finn's senses on high alert. Who could be trying to scare Dana off? And what in the world would they be after?

Irene captures the essence of a peaceful place, two people who enhance each other's qualities, and adds in a touch of suspense and romance to create a captivating tale. Once the story got moving, I didn't want to quit reading. I was impressed with McGregor's talents, (he's truly portrayed as a modern day knight in shining armor) as well as, his gentle spirit. He is struggling with is relationship with God, after experiencing tragic, heartbreaking situations in the war. I also enjoyed Dana's inner strength and courage in-spite of the circumstances she had faced.

I would definitely recommend this book which I received a free copy of from Revell to review. I was not required to review positively and all opinions are my own.
