Book Review: Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon

Tangled Webs (Men of Valor #3)
Book Description:

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. 

Book Review: 

 Right away you are brought into this book. First with the Father and a confession, and then with Finn hearing screams in the dark. So I'm not sure what happened, but it took me around a month to finish this book. I must not have been in the mood for a suspense novel, because I would put it down and pick it up weeks later to read a little bit an put it down again. That generally never happens, and honestly it shouldn't have happened with this book. Like I said, it started off interesting right away, and the writing was really good, and I liked the characters. Maybe it is because we know right off who the "bad guys" are, and there is no suspense that way. It was probably just my current mood though. 

Both Finn and Dana are great, and I liked how their relationship progresses. I even felt sympathy for one of the "bad guys". Although, he isn't really a bad guy...just put in a difficult position and you could really feel for him. 

So even though for some reason this wasn't my cup of tea, Irene Hannon remains one of my go to Christian Suspense authors.
