My thoughts: As this story begins, a trio of young folks are involved in the stealth burial of another of their group. Circumstances surrounding the "why" they need to dispose of the body in secrecy are not revealed. That leaves the reader spinning reasons throughout the story. We are brought forward in time to the current day when the three are again brought tenaciously together because of their buried secret.
While this is one of the "Men of Valor" stories, it seems to me that the primary focus is on the female protagonist as she seeks to unravel the clues for the recently unearthed body.
Personalities and flawed characters are fleshed out by the author as Lisa Grant uses her formerly used skills honed by her position with the FBI in Chicago to solve this long time secret. As Lisa and "Man of Valor," Mac McGregor, team up to bring justice for the person so long buried. Draw together further by romantic feelings toward each other, they determine to table this interest until they are finished working the case.
As usual, Irene Hannon has written an exciting story where faith is the root of her characters' hearts. Find it HERE on www.FamilyChristian.com
