Fiction. Romance. Suspense. Former Army Ranger Finn McGregor retreats to the woods looking to decompress. Instead, he's plunged back into a high-stakes fight when he crosses paths with a beautiful neighbor being targeted by a mysterious foe with deadly intent.
Hannon is a master at romantic suspense. Her timing is impeccable and her characters are well-drawn. I loved the unfolding love story between Finn and Dana. There is sweetness and sizzle between these two engaging characters. Readers find out who the bad guys are early on in the action, although Finn and Dana must wait longer to uncover the mystery. I liked that Hannon let readers in on the motivations behind the bad guys’ actions — that gave this reader a lot of food for thought. Just what how far would you go to care for a loved one? For some, the answer is black and white, but for others the answer may involve gray areas. For this reason, Tangled Webs is an excellent choice for book clubs.
Tangled Webs is a great ending for an excellent series. Too bad there aren’t any more McGregor brothers! I guess I’ll just have to wait for Hannon’s new Code of Honor series coming in the Spring of 2017.
Great for Book Clubs.

I found it interesting that two damaged folks are secluding themselves, in
When danger comes to visit their quiet woods, Finn bounds into rescue mode and stays there throughout the book. The lovely Dana is quietly pursing her professional life albeit disconnected from the outside world by phone or Internet.
The locals are tangled up a bit in Finn and Dana's stories presenting multiple layers of danger, suspense, and mystery. I loved their trips into the quaint town for the diner's wonderful pies.
I have read all three books in the Men of Valor series and found them simply enjoyable reads. Looking forward to more from Irene Hannon's pen.
I received a complimentary copy from Revell a division of Baker Publishing Group.
Can you imagine being alone in a wooded cabin,
I love this author’s books, and know I have a winner when I pick one up, and this one does not disappoint. She offers a bit of everything here, both good and evil, and the struggles in between. Really makes you think too, to what extent would an honest man go to protect a loved one?
Don’t miss this final book in this series, and treat yourself and read the other two, you really won’t be disappointed.
I received this book through the Revell Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
Book Summary: After a disastrous Middle East mission ends his six-year Army Ranger career, Finn McGregor needs some downtime. A peaceful month in the woods sounds like the perfect way to decompress. But peace isn't on the agenda once he crosses paths with publishing
Summary: I found the book a bit slow for me. I usually love Irene Hannon books, this time I struggled to get through it at times. Dana was a unique character and her back story was interesting. Finn seemed a little flat, at the start, after all the build of from the other books. I wished I was more engrossed in the story line. It was only at the end that I found the twist at the end very exciting. The ending made the entire book worth it.

Author: Irene Hannon
My rating is 4 stars.
This third and final novel in the Men of Valor series focuses on Finn McGregor, the youngest McGregor brother. Finn has left the Army behind and needs some time to recover from a
Finn meets his neighbor, Dana Lewis, one night as he hears her screams. He races to her rescue only to discover that she is having a nightmare and has left the window open and that is why he was able to hear her screams. He soon discovers that Dana is very cautious around him and suffers from some deep wounds of her own. She has left New York City and a top level job as a senior editor at a publishing company to work as a freelance editor in her grandparents’ cabin where she has many fond memories. As she becomes the target of vandals, she can’t imagine why. She keeps to herself and has made no enemies. She and Finn quickly develop a friendship that they both know will lead to romance almost immediately. As their romance deepens, the search for what is happening on and to Dana’s property escalates. The local chief of police tries to get Dana to leave her cabin until the culprit is caught, but Dana refuses to leave.
The faith message isn’t real strong in this story, but readers do see both main characters believe in God and trust Him with their futures. I thought this story focused more on the romance than the mystery, but I still enjoyed reading it. I did like the police chief’s story and his search for a way to finance his wife’s health care. I thought that was an interesting angle to the plot. The three McGregor brothers’ bond was also a treasure in all three stories. The way they cared for one another was touching and something positive to read about. There will be a new romantic suspense series from this author called Code of Honor due to be released in the fall of 2017, which I plan on reading.
Irene Hannon, in Tangled Webs,her third novel of the Men of Valor series, has created a real treat for fans of romantic suspense. This book stood alone well, as I had not read the previous two. I loved the pacing of the romantic development between Finn and Dana. I loved the gossipy waitress who knew everyone and their business.(Doesn't every small town have one?) I held my breath as I watched the antagonists make one choice after another that would affect so many around them.
In short, Irene Hannon held me spellbound. I plan to go back and look up her other two books in the series, plus investigate other books she has written. Hannon is an author whose books would make a great addition to the romantic suspense lover's library.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Reads, which in no way influenced the direction of my thoughts, solely my own.
This was a real page turner and I enjoyed the healing and helping aspect of the book
I received a copy of the is book from the publisher, the review is entirely my own
I believe this is the last book in the Men of Valor series featuring the McGregor brothers. As I predicted, each book featured one of the brothers.
The back cover blurb almost seemed a misnomer. There really isn't anyone currently threatening
Spoiler alert: Warning, spoilers may follow. Read on at your own discretion:
Finally! I got my wish for it not to be the woman in jeopardy with the man riding in to save her! Instead, Finn is the one captured and while Dana doesn't single handedly save him, she does play a role in that event. (It only took 9 books for it to happen!)
However, I still struggle with the main characters knowing each other for a short period of time before deciding to get engaged. Less than a year in this case. Fictional life is easy--the characters do whatever the author writes, but real life isn't fiction and relationships take work and dedication and I'm not sure less than a year qualifies as knowing someone well enough to know you can commit for life.
