Buried Secrets by Irene Hannon

They both wanted quieter, safer lives.
But crime never sleeps . . .
and killers keep killing.

After years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant is ready for the kinder, gentler life of a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes department resources. Enter ex-Navy SEAL Mac McGregor, the detective sent by the county to assist on the case. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn't want this dead person telling any tales--and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.

"The queen of inspirational romantic suspense" (Library Journal) is at the top of her game with this riveting new series.

"An excellent suggestion for inspirational fiction fans as well as readers who enjoy Mary Higgins Clark's subtly chilling brand of suspense."

My Review

This is one can’t put down thriller, a real page-turner, and happily there are more books to come in this series! I can’t wait!
I can imagine the pain of a family of not knowing where their daughter is, she had come to the States to learn, and then disappears? Now twenty-four years later her body has been found, and through modern technology she has been found and identified. The questions are flying now, how did the body get under that tree and how did she die?
We meet some interesting people here, a small town Sheriff Lisa Grant, and a former Navy SEAL and now Police Detective Mac McGregor. Now thrown together in this investigation, and what they find will put them in danger. Someone does not want this dead person talking and will go to any measure to stop it, including murder.
What a lot of surprises you are going to be in for, and they are shocking and conniving, and so much evil. A psychopath on the loose, and will stop at nothing to achieve what they want and feel is their due, no one is going to be safe here.
We do experience some happy family reunions and the start of budding romance, and I see that there will be another book including the McGregor family.
If you enjoy mystery and intrigue and never wanting a book to end, and yet you want to know what is going to happen, then this book is definitely for you. Don’t miss this amazing read!

I received this book as part of the Revell Book Bloggers Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
