Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon | Re:View

Tangled Webs indeed! As Irene Hannon’s third book in the Men of Valor series, I had a lot of high expectations for this book and I was not disappointed! I had long since wondered about the third brother in the series. Finn, the troubled one. He was a bit of an enigma to me and mysteries like that are just begging to be solved!

I started this book and got through the first few pages then picked it up the next day and finished it! I don't usually have time to read like this, but I was glad I did for this book. It’s a rollercoaster of ups and downs, twists and turns, and questions at every one of those turns. I would say that it started out with less action than her other books but, because of the way she told the story, you didn’t feel like it was slow at all. The unanswered questions and other plot elements pull you along.

I really really really loved Finn. Definitely my favorite brother out of them all, and Dana was a great female lead as well. In Irene’s characteristic “love at first sight” type of romance, I like that they were both cautious (for various reasons) and took some time to get to know one another.

I also enjoyed her secondary characters immensely, especially Hazel! I love the small town feel and the Walleye was perfect! Irene also included such a compelling story line for her somewhat-ani-hero and I just appreciated the realness to the character and how she perfectly detailed the course of events that led to all of the decisions made (sorry to be vague here but I don’t want to spoil anything).

The only thing I didn’t exactly love was how Finn’s brothers, and Finn himself, use the term “hot” so often to describe Dana. It was like this in all of the books and…though I totally get it, I think one use of that term is about enough for me. But hey, it doesn’t affect the story and it’s probably just a personal thing anyway.

I would definitely recommend this to fans of romantic suspense. There’s a good bit of both in the book, though maybe less action than normal the story makes up for it in my opinion. It’s a great third book in my opinion and makes me look forward to her next series “Code of Honor” which releases fall of 2017!

Book Description
(from Amazon)
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.
