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.

BURIED SECRETS is the first book in Ms. Hannon’s new series, Men of Valor. I have to admit, this book is scarier than some of Ms. Hannon’s romantic suspense... the villain/murderer absolutely terrified me. I finished the book thankful I don’t have any “friends” like that in my life. So very cold. Calculated. (shudder.)  

I enjoyed getting to know Mac and Lisa. I had to applaud Lisa for taking on a male dominated career and succeeding. I also fell in love with Mac. He is a total sweetheart.

Even though the identity of the killer is revealed early on, fans will keep reading as the body count keeps rising, the stakes keep going up, and the (suspected) attempted on one of the officer’s life is executed… 

Irene Hannon is one of my very favorite romantic suspense authors. If you like romantic suspense and haven’t read her yet, please, check out her books. If you have read her books, don’t miss BURIED SECRETS.

5 stars. Available in paperback and ebook. 384 pages.
