Point of Danger by Irene Hannon {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 




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 follows, 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.

If I could choose just 3 authors to read for the rest of my life, one of them-without a doubt- would be Irene Hannon. Whether it's her romance reads or her romantic suspense, she nails it every single time. Needless to say, I couldn't wait to check out the first book in her new Triple Threat Series, Point of Danger. I am happy to say, it didn't disappoint in the slightest. 

In this book, we meet conservative radio talk show host Eve Reilly. With her strong conservative opinions, it can be assumed that she has made many enemies for herself. When a bomb scare shows up at her door, she finds herself caught up with detective Brent Lange trying to figure out who has her in their sights, and to stop them before it's too late. With so many possible enemies and motives, this is one book that will certainly keep you guessing. I must say that while I figured out some things early on in the book, the reveal of the ultimate bad guy in the end had me rereading to make sure I'd read that right. It certainly took me by surprise... and as someone who reads many suspense novels, that's really saying something. 

In addition to the suspense, I really enjoyed getting to know Eve and Brent, and see their romance as well. As a conservative radio show host, you can already probably guess that she very much has conservative political views, some of which were brought up within the story. As such, this might not appeal to those on the other side as much. That being said however... politics stress me out, and I don't typically care for books that address politics too much regardless of side, but this book didn't bother me at all. I felt like this was just part of who the characters were, and not that it was over the top. The romance and the suspense were really what made the story anyway!

Overall, another fantastic read from Irene Hannon. If you love Christian romantic suspense, this is certainly one to check out!
