The first book in her new "Men of Valor" series, author Irene Hannon provides an acceptable suspense story that introduces the first of the McGregor boys (the "Men of Valor.")
Mac McGregor is a former Navy SEAL turned detective, who is called to a local small town to assist in a suspected homicide investigation. A skeleton has been turned up by a construction crew preparing the land for building. His brothers (who presumably will be the focus of the next two books) are also introduced.
Police Chief Lisa Grant has left the big city and police department in Chicago for her own reasons and is settling in to her relatively new life with a slower pace. She and Mac have an instant connection and begin to work together to solve the case. Turns out the body was buried years ago, and someone is very desperate to ensure that no one discovers the real reason why.
I enjoyed this story and can recommend it to anyone who enjoys solving a good mystery with just enough suspense to keep you engaged. I received this book from Revell Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
