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.
This is the first book I've read by Irene, and I must say I really enjoyed it. I've been reading some mysteries lately and was excited to read this one. The storyline was realistic, and wasn't all over the place. It was paced just right, and showed a lot about the character's personalities.
Dana was a cool character, and a lot like me. She is a book editor (which I'd love to do ) And isn't a big coffee drinker. Loves adventure, yet loves to hang out and be chill. After a traumatic experiance escapes to get childhood home to recover .
Finn was awesome. A former army ranger who cares about other people, and had a family there to encourage him. Getting away for a month so he can recover from ptsd he's been having, an isolated retreat made his loved ones nervous, and possibltt with good reason if he hadn't met his neighbor. Always alert for trouble, yet caring and loving. He was such an awesome guy! (Who wouldn't like a guy who is protective, nice looking, has a good family, and looks after you)
It was such a sweet book, and I look forward to reading more of the author's books.
I recieved this book from the publisher for an honest review.
5 out of 5 stars.
