After losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail–addressed in her sister’s handwriting. And the note inside claims she is still alive.
FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case, but he’s coming up with more questions than answers. If Ginny Reed is still alive–who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game–or the target of a sinister plot? As he digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: whoever is behind the bizarre ruse has a deadly agenda.
Bestselling author and two-time Christy Award finalist Irene Hannon warms readers’ hearts as they root for a romance between Lance and Christy, but she pulls out all the stops as this high-stakes thriller chills to the bone in a race to the finish.
Irene Hannon never disappoints. I fell completely in love with these characters. Through out this whole book you are draining all your emotions out. You don’t know if you want to be sad and cry like a baby or smile so much your face starts to hurt.
Christy is a former figure skater, now coaching at a local ice rink. She has in the last six months lost her parents in a car wreck and her only sister in a house fire. Or so she thought. She is forced to hope, and reach for an outcome that is highly unlikely. All the while trying to figure out who she could have possibly hurt enough for them to want revenge and her to be miserable.
Lance is just starting a new career in the FBI, unused to following protocol and unsure how to really go about doing things. His first case ends up being a phone call about someone possible being kidnapped. After she had died in the fire that destroyed her home. And that’s how Lance and Christy meet.
During this investigation, or really waiting around, they form a friendship that is unlike any either have ever had before. They grow close and share things that they have never shared with anyone else. Together they grow in their personal lives, taking away anger and grief while trying to keep the relationship simply business.
I wont lie, when I first started reading Thin Ice I was not really into it. I mean c’mon, if you read it you will totally understand. I didn’t want to read about a poor woman that was all alone and most likely depressed more than anyone knew. But I’m glad I read it because that first impression was COMPLETLEY wrong. I fell in love with Christy and Lance, and a few of the other characters as well. I had gotten so into it that I cried when it was over, but no worries… there’s still one brother left 🙂
