They both wanted quieter, safer lives.
But crime never sleeps . . .
and killers keep killing.
After years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant is ready for the kinder, gentler life of a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes department resources. Enter ex-Navy SEAL Mac McGregor, the detective sent by the county to assist on the case. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn’t want this dead person telling any tales–and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.

Deceived was the first book I read by Irene Hannon, so when I got the chance to read and review Buried Secrets I was so excited! This book is an amazing and suspenseful murder story with characters that flesh out a complex plot. She created strong female characters that inspires and encourages. Irene Hannon’s plot for this book was a nice change of pace to typical murder mystery stories. I enjoyed the build up to figuring out the initial crime along with the crimes that happened later in the book. This book does deal with crime scenes and murder but nothing graphic is mentioned. One thing I wished would have been covered more was the spiritual content. Spirituality wasn’t mentioned much more than passing mentions of prayer. This is a fantastic read and you should get your own copy to discover just how great this book is!
