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.
Bestselling author and three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon is back with a heart-stopping new series that will have you turning pages well into the night.
Hannon (Sea Rose Lane) introduces readers to sisters Eve, Cate, and Grace Reilly in this middling first installment of her Triple Threat trilogy. Eve, a conservative radio talk-show host, becomes a target due to her controversial viewpoints. First, a fake bomb containing a sinister note is left on the doorstep of her home. She then receives a disturbing on-air call from someone with private information from one of Eve's past relationships. Commitment-phobic detective Brent Lange works to track down the suspect before the threats to silence Eve are realized. While unable to deny his growing attraction to Eve, his efforts to avoid a relationship only make Eve more curious. As threats escalate and suspects multiply, Brent realizes that life is too short not to grasp the opportunity for true love. Unfortunately, Hannon's tale is uncharacteristically heavy on romance and light on action. Much of the narrative is spent using Eve's radio platform to push a conservative political agenda, and spiritual elements feel grafted onto Eve to paint her as having ideal moral values. Hannon's heavy-handed tale will disappoint fans accustomed to her action-filled romantic thrillers. \n
