Book Review - Point of Danger by Irene Hannon


Hate mail was one thing. This was quite another.

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 elusive foe, the gutsy woman who is willing to take risks for what she believes--and who is swiftly winning his heart--may not survive.


Irene Hannon is the bestselling author of more than fifty novels, including Hope Harbor, Sea Rose Lane, Sandpiper Cove, Pelican Point, Driftwood Bay, and Starfish Pier, as well as Point of Danger and the Code of Honor, Private Justice, and Men of Valor suspense series.

I always enjoy Irene Hannon's books. She does a great job with mystery and giving us characters we care about.  I also like that there's a little romance but it doesn't take over the storyline. I like my suspense novels to stay that way and not veer off into the romance genre.

This book starts right off with a heart-pounding situation.  Eve, a conservative radio show host, goes to her door and find a ticking package. The twists and turns never stop from page one. I really like that she cares enough about others, throughout the book, to try and protect others from the backlash of disgruntled listeners.  You see this side of her immediately and it's one of her endearing qualities.

The police detective called to this situation becomes a main-stay in her life. He's a complex man  that cares about Eve and is drawn into her life more and more. There are so many background characters that could be the culprit so it keeps you guessing as to who is doing what and why.

Another interesting aspect of this book is that we see the story from the point of view of the culprit which brings a whole new to this story. That has been done in some books, but it's unusual and I enjoyed this twist.  I've read other Irene Hannon books and it was so fun to see familiar people in the story. It feels like you know this community because of that. 

I really enjoyed this book. It's a book full of suspense and I had a hard time putting this book down. I give if 5 stars.
