    A great addition to the code of honor series. The story of Luke and Christine was heartwarming. The mystery was excellent as was the narration. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Kristen Dane is a good friend of the other two members of the Treehouse Gang. Each member is in a different career, but their bond is strong. When Kristen learns that a monk she knew in a different country has died, she is broken hearted. She then attends the wedding of a good friend. However, after a couple days off, she enters her store to find the body of her coworker and a mess in the store.

    The man who comes to the scene and try to gather clues is a new Detective on the force and covering for Kristen friend Colin while he is on his honeymoon. Kristen’s heart as well as the detective named Luke are attracted to each other instantly though neither is aware of the others thoughts or feelings. Luke was married and is now widowed. He tries to guard his heart so that he doesn’t mix business with personal relationships. Becca is his sister and she is trying to encourage Luke to allow someone to love him and be close to him.

    Book two has a lot of action, adventure and danger that really will keep people glued to the book. I cannot wait for the third book and wonder how the author is going to build that story. All I know is that Irene Hannon is quite an accomplished story writer. In this sequel, there is a beautiful romance building and a great example of having boundaries to protect the heart and relationship until after marriage.

    I sat and read the book in one sitting; I couldn’t put it down! So, if you haven’t read the first book, then catch up so that when book two is released in October of this year, your appetite will be ready for what is coming and trust me it is outstanding!

    An amazing romantic suspense. More suspense than romantic, but still highly entertaining. A Terrorist plot involving homemade candles from Syria? Very interesting and unique.

    I had the villain figured out early on in the story and that took some of the tension out of it for me. But over all a great read. I recommend it to anyone who loves Romantic Suspense.

    This is the second book in this series, and can be read alone, but we pick up at a wedding, and go forward from there with a chance meeting and then a sad professional meeting a few days later.

    While my mind did lock onto who the main culprit was you will have to read to see if you catch on too. With a lot of action here you will not be able to guess what is around the next corner.

    We are reunited with the life friends of the Tree House Gang, and I love the relationship they share, and how they are there for one another.

    With a bit of sweet romance, and a strong faith in God, you will be wanting to come back soon for another linger into the lives of these characters.

    I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Hidden Peril is the second book in the Code of Honor series and is Kristin Dane's story. She is part of the Treehouse Gang that we met in Dangerous Illusions. Kristin, Colin and Rick have been best friends since they met when they were twelve years old. Colin and Rick sat with Kristin at lunch after noticing that she always sat alone. They have been friends since and each needed the friendship for different reasons. Kristin's parents have careers that kept them from spending much time with her as she grew up but provided the best nannies, after school classes and camps. Colin and Rick have been close like family. Krisitin is best woman in Colin's wedding where she briefly meets Detective Luke Carter, a new co-worker of Colin's at the St. Louis County police force. He doesn't want to be there since he hasn't recovered from the death of his wife three years ago and weddings are too happy for him to enjoy.

    Kristin and Luke don't expect to see each other again but are thrown together when Luke gets assigned to investigate the murder of Kristin's assistant in her fair trade shop where she sells goods from around the world. The case is a complicated one that goes deeper than a robbery or known assailant. Kristin wounds up cooperating with not only the county law enforcement but the FBI when they start digging into the case. Luke and Kristin develop a friendship that sparks an attraction that they can't deny.

    Irene Hannon always does a great job at developing characters that are real, likable and believable. Her books are full of suspense, danger, faith and romance. This one is no exception. It is an action packed page turner to the end. I am looking forward to Rick's story next year.

    I received a complimentary ARC of the book from Revell Publishing through NetGalley. The thoughts and opinions stated are mine only.

    Hidden Peril is the second book in Irene Hannon's Code of Honor series. Her meticulous research ferreted out from law enforcement officers gives her stories a ring of truth. This book confronts the realities of terror cells among us in this day and time. Kristin Dane is helping the world in her small corner of it. Following a stint in the Peace Corp, and some time to learn how to successfully run a business, she opened WorldCraft, a store that sells fair trade items and fosters community economic development in third world communities. Little did she know that her business was unintentionally helping to fund terror cells much closer to home. Detective Luke Carter was still grieving three years after the death of his wife. He struggled with the idea of “replacing” her, but his sister and his growing feelings for Kristin helped him to realize that our hearts have a limitless supply of love and that we can love additional people without replacing the ones we have loved before. Now that he was willing to risk his heart again, he must see to the safety of his new love.

    Irene Hannon is a skilled writer of romantic suspense. The romance features of her stories play well against the suspense without detracting from it. Her suspense stories always keep their promise of being an edge of your seat, page turning, wild ride read. My advise is to give up on getting anything else accomplished once you pick one up. I thank NetGalley and Revell Publishing for providing me with a copy of Hidden Peril in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review and received no monetary compensation.

    Irene Hannon has created another thriller with Hidden Peril. Captivating characters, intense romance and a race against the clock to stop a terrorist plot, Hidden Peril has everything to keep you glued to the pages.

    Finding her shop assistant dead behind the counter of her fair trade shop was a terrible shock to owner Kristin Dane. She opened the shop to make a positive impact on the world and is heartbroken by the loss and eager to help the police with their inquiries. Detective Luke Carter can find few leads in the murder investigation, until further deaths are linked back to the same shop. When the FBI become involved, Luke and Kristin find themselves in the middle of an investigation that could have serious implications - both at home and around the world.

    Hidden Peril is the second book in the Code of Honor series. Like the first book in the series there are snippets of action and an underlying tension throughout the entire book but the majority of the story is based around solid detective work. As with the first book, I love the measured pace and the authentic feeling that this brings to the story. Luke, later along with the FBI, methodically work the case, and while some parts of the investigation take time, there is still plenty of action, especially at the end. I also have to note that I loved Kristin’s role in the investigation, her determination and continued strength. Kristin faces many challenges in Hidden Peril, including grief and becoming entangled in a terrorist’s plot. She also faces more personal challenges in the form of a family crisis. Even when distraught or exhausted, Kristin demonstrates continued compassion and strength; she is a wonderful character and someone I really enjoyed getting to know while reading Hidden Peril.

    There is a lot of romantic tension in the story. Luke and Kristin have a wonderful chemistry and an underlying passion that they try to keep dormant as Luke works the case. Luke isn’t sure he ever wants to become romantically involved with anyone again, thinks it might break the vows he made to his late wife. Yet Kristin seems to slip past his defences. They share a lot of playful banter as they work personal conversations into their discussions about the case.

    I love the author’s attention to detail - both in the aspects of the case and in the overall writing style. It’s not hard to imagine oneself right next to the characters, as you enjoy the vivid descriptions and lush prose.

    Intrigue and romance combine in Hidden Peril to create an exciting and thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Code of Honor series. I eagerly await the third book in the series by the talented author.

    I never miss an Irene Hannon book. She is a very good suspense author with spiritual themes. This latest book is number two in her Code of Honor series and delves into terrorist activity and how they fund their missions.

    Her writing, as always, is impeccable, and her plots spot on in today's world. Her characters are always very well developed. I especially enjoy how she layers her suspense right up until the end, guaranteeing her readers excitement in her books. Recommended.

    Luke Carter and Kristin Dane are both interesting characters, and I enjoyed getting to know them and their backstories throughout the book. The storyline with Kristin and her family, in particular, I loved. While I can't say I'm a huge fan of Hannon's romances, the platonic relationships are always epic! I loved Luke's relationship with his sister, Becca, and Kristin's relationship with her best-friends-from-high-school, Colin and Rick. Talk about awesome big-brother material!

    The storyline itself kept me on my toes. A terrorist plot wrapped up in handmade candles from Syria? So unique! The villain was very interesting, but I guessed his identity pretty early on, which took some of the suspense out of it for me. The ending was very action-packed and nail-biting, just the way a climax should be.

    Overall, while this is not my favorite of Hannon's, it was still a fun read and worth checking out if you are a lover of romantic suspense!

    CONTENT NOTE: Recommended for ages 18+ for romance and violence.
