I have often heard the old saying “Desperate people do desperate things” and “Tangled Webs” paints a pretty good example of that idea. When a previously honorable man is driven by desperation to do something illegal and out of character, others are drawn into his web. A tale of desperation, blackmail, and secrets, “Tangled Webs” is a romantic suspense that kept me turning the pages well into the night.
The third book in Hannon’s Men of Valor series, “Tangled Webs” features Finn McGregor, whose brothers were featured in the earlier volumes. Finn is spending some alone time in the woods, hoping to recover somewhat from a mission in the Middle East that left him suffering from PTSD. A scream in the night introduces him to Dana Lewis, who brings out all his protective instincts and eventually a strong attraction.
As always I thoroughly enjoyed this latest novel of Irene Hannon’s. I love the way the McGregor brothers interact and the way they look out for each other. The plot was a strong one with ample amounts of drama, suspense, and romance interjected with subtle humor at times. Some reviewers have complained about the inclusion of Chief Burnett’s point of view but I liked the fact that it gave me insight about what was going on in his life and why he made the choices he made. “Tangled Webs” is a story with a valuable lesson about the consequences of the choices we make.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book that was provided by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Finn has packed away his combat instincts–but he may need them again when danger begins to stalk his quiet hideaway . . .
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.
