An Intricate Blend of Romance and Intrigue!!

    "Thin Ice"
By Irene Hannon

Synopsis: (taken from book jacket) 

After losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail--addressed in her sister's handwriting. 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. If Ginny Reed is still alive--who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game--or the target of a sinister plot? As he digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: whoever is behind the bizarre ruse has a deadly agenda.

Bestselling author and two-time Christy Award finalist Irene Hannon warms readers' hearts as they root for a romance between Lance and Christy, but she pulls out all the stops as this high-stakes thriller chills to the bone in a race to the finish.

My Thoughts:
 As a big fan of Irene Hannon, my expectations of this book were high!!  I must say, that I was NOT disappointed!! This creation has to be one of this author's best ever!!  If you are a reader like I, you love to escape from reality for a while and immerse yourself in a book that takes you far and beyond what your normality is!!  I could not put this novel down !! I was totally captivated from beginning to end.

The plot involved twists and turns at the most unexpected moments. Just when your heartbeat was returning to a somewhat normal pace, a shocking event would put you once again on the edge of your seat with your heart pounding in fear and suspense. Fast paced and exciting, all in one book.

The characters were easy to identify with as they were described in an extremely realistic and believable way. The challenges and fears with which they were presented were unusual but oh so emotional. I felt every one of Christy's pains . My emotions were on a fast paced roller coaster ride as I travelled along side her in her strange circumstances.

Definitely a five star book!! 

All I can say is WOW!!!!!
