I chose Point of Danger for this Monday’s book review. This is book one in the Triple Threat Series by Irene Hannon and it’s a page-turner.
I stayed up late reading this one. The story is good–we’ll get to that– but I love reading the bits about the St. Louis area that Hannon includes in this book. I mean Ted Drewes! The best place ever if you’re a local or a tourist to get frozen custard. My favorite? Cardinal Sin. Great now I want that and they’re closed for the season! There are several other references in this book about my ‘home town’ that gives me a hug–even though it’s a suspense book!
So back to the book! Eve Reiley is a conservative talk show host–hmm, did Hannon get her character idea from Rush Limbaugh a Missouri native? Maybe. Eve stirs up trouble on air because she has no trouble speaking what she believes is wrong with the country.
She has regular callers who intensely argue with her, emails and letters sent with threats–it’s all part of the job.
Until it isn’t.
So who is after her? It could be anyone! She’s made a lot of people angry because of her views. So much so that well… I don’t want to give anything away but let’s just say her life is in DANGER. And of course, there just happens to be a detective that wants to see she is safe and perhaps more. Que romance, please!
Hannon also introduces Eve’s sisters in this story who will follow with their own stories. Book 2 is also out the Labrinth of Lies–guess what I’ll be doing soon? Yep, reading about Eve’s sister, Cate. No regrets about getting into this well-written, intense series.
This book was a pleasure to review.
Radio talk show host Eve Reilly is used to backlash from her pot-stirring on-air commentary and interviews, but now it seems a disgruntled listener is resorting to more than angry words to express their displeasure. When a suspicious package arrives on her doorstep, Eve turns to law enforcement for help.
Police detective Brent Lange can’t find any evidence to link the string of unsettling incidents that follow, but he’s convinced they’re connected. As the harassment grows more menacing, it becomes clear someone wants Eve’s voice silenced–permanently.
But unless he can track down her foe, fast, the gutsy woman who is willing to take risks for what she believes–and who is swiftly winning his heart–may not survive.
