Review: Hidden Peril

Hidden Peril by Irene Hannon
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Publication Date: October 2, 2018

As kids, Kristin Dane and her two best friends made a pact that one day, each would make the world a better place. Twenty years later, each is fulfilling that pledge in their own unique way. One is a cop, one directs a kids camp for underprivileged children, and Kristin owns and operates WorldCraft, a fair trade store featuring products from all over the world. The last thing she expects to find in her peaceful little shop is the body of her clerk, brutally murdered. When a second body turns up, killed the same way, suspicion starts to mount that the shop is connected somehow. As Kristin cooperates with law enforcement to catch a killer, she finds herself in the middle of a potential terrorism plot. Can they stay out of the crosshairs of the mastermind behind the plot they’ve uncovered?

When Detective Luke Carter is introduced to Kristin Dane at his co-workers wedding, he feels the first stirrings of interest that he’s felt since his wife died three years ago. Meeting her again at a murder scene is not in his plans, but as they work together to uncover the reason her shop seems to be at the center of two murders, his interest grows to attraction. Can he protect the woman he’s beginning to care about from an enemy they can’t see, or even find?

This book was un-put-downable from the first page. It gets rolling pretty quickly, and the villain is NOT who anyone suspects. While the suspense is intense, the romance between the two main characters is a sweet counterpoint to that. Luke and Kristin are obviously interested in one another from their first encounter, but Luke’s “hands-off when they’re involved in an investigation” policy keeps them dancing around that attraction for most of the book. I liked that they still found ways to be together, even if it was just for a short chat.

Romance readers will love the love story in Hidden Peril. Suspense readers will love the heart-pounding thrills in the book. When Irene Hannon comes out with a new book, it always tops my list of “What to Read Next.” Hidden Peril did NOT disappoint! I highly recommend!

Rated PG: The book begins with murder, and there are two more in rapid succession, and the suspense is pretty intense.
