Buried Secrets by Irene Hannon

Buried Secrets by Irene Hannon

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.

Here is my review of this wonderfully suspenseful romance:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Irene Hannon and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Buried Secrets" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
 “Buried Secrets” by Irene Hannon is an amazing and suspenseful murder story with rich, meaty characters that flesh out a complex plot.  Hannon’s writing builds suspense to a fever pitch that is equaled by the romantic tension between her leading man and woman.  She creates strong female characters that inspire and encourage. This is a great read!

Detective Mac MacGregor is a former Navy SEAL who’s looking to slow down and start a family.  Police Chief Lisa Grant is also looking for respite from the insane life as a Chicago detective.  When these two are thrown together to investigate a cold case, they are drawn to each other more than professionally but agree to put any personal interest on hold until their business is put to rest.  They begin beating the bushes of an old investigation and end up with a deadly case.
