Blog tour stop: My review of An Eye for An Eye by Irene Hannon

Available September 2009 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

About the book:

After he accidentally shoots a teenager at a tense standoff, FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Mark Sanders is sent to St. Louis to work as a field agent and get his bearings while the bad press starts to settle. Just weeks away from returning to Quantico to resume his work on the HRT, Mark has a chance encounter with an old flame, Emily Lawson. But their reunion is cut short by a sniper. Now Mark must find the shooter before he tries to strike again. But what is his motive—and who was his intended target? Can Mark put the pieces together, keep Emily safe, and rekindle a long-dead relationship at the same time?

A fast-paced tale of romance, suspense, and intrigue, An Eye for an Eye is the exciting second installment in the Heroes of Quantico series.

My review:

This story was interesting enough to hold my attention and romantic enough to make me smile. Those kisses slipped in here and there were just often enough to make me savor the romantic element in the story. I think it's worth taking the time to read. There are good character arcs and the spiritual content seemed believeable enough. It was good seeing a strong and compassionate woman portrayed in the plot. The only thing that annoyed me was the constant referring to Wren Lake. It could have been stated differently to avoid that repetition such as the summer they met or back at the lake or whatever. Anyway, it was still worth my time and I'd recommend it for romance lovers who enjoy a good chase. I didn't find it particularly suspenseful, though. Maybe because I knew the characters were going to persist and I felt secure with them fighting for the safety of the targeted person. LOL! If that was the author's intention, it worked.

An Eye for An Eye was published by Revell and released in Sept. 2009.
