Another edge of your seat read from Irene Hannon! Hidden Peril keeps true to Hannon’s great writing and will keep the reader turning the page.
It’s been twenty years since Kristin Dane took a vow with her friends to do what she could to make the world a better place and she is now making that happen with her fair trade shop. She has products from around the world and is able to bring attention to these areas and their needs by the products she sales. When people connected to her shop start dying, Kristin gets involved in the case. She begins working with Detective Luke Carter. He has just started working with the St. Louis PD and is pulled deep into the case hoping to find answers. Kristin and Luke work with the FBI in a case that spans the globe and is more complicated than any of them first believed. Together they work to stop this killer before more people die.
Hidden Peril is the second book in the Code of Honor series and I loved the way this story played out. The way the story spanned the globe and brought about history and awareness to events not commonly talked about made it all the more interesting. Irene Hannon is one of the best at romantic suspense. At times her stories can be a little heavy on romance but this one played out with extra suspense, which I really enjoyed. Some authors have a way with making certain characters especially evil and Irene Hannon is one of those authors, I felt the evil and let it roll with the story in the direction it was meant to go. Nothing seemed forced and the characters meshed well together. Kristin is the type of character that is easily relatable and you want to pull for and see her succeed. Luke and Kristin had an easy attraction to each other and the tension and danger they faced brought them closer together in a very natural way. I am not sure if there will be another in this series, but if there is, I will be first in line to read it. I recommend this book to fans of Hannon’s work and those that love reading romantic suspense.
