About the Book:

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 executive Dana Lewis, a neighbor who is nursing wounds of her own. Someone seems bent on disrupting her stay in the lakeside cabin she inherited from her grandfather. As Finn and Dana work together to discover who is behind the disquieting pranks, the incidents begin to take on a menacing tone. And when it becomes apparent Dana's foe may have deadly intent, Finn finds himself back in the thick of the action--ready or not.

My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟  (4 stars) 
“Her book deadline wasn’t what would keep her awake until the wee hours. The blame for that rested squarely on the shoulders of an ex-Army Ranger who was fast making himself at home in her life . . . and her heart.”

This is the third book and the end of Ms. Hannon’s Men of Valor series. This one features the youngest McGregor brother, Finn. Both Finn and Dana have come to cabins in the woods to get away and enjoy a bit of seclusion. Their first meeting is filled with action and awkwardness, but after moving past the awkward they get to know one another and a relationship blooms. Both of them have experienced some pretty hard times in their past and are able to help each other move forward. However that future might be in jeopardy when Dana starts getting harassed. Can they figure out who is causing the problems and why and stay safe? We learn fairly early on who is behind what is happening but the suspense builds as we wait to see what they will do to keep from being caught, and if caught what happens then?

If you are doing something wrong with good intentions are your actions still wrong or does your motivation make your actions okay? This is a debate that one of the characters is dealing with. I enjoyed the scenes with this character, following them reasoning out their behaviour. I did not agree with what they were doing but I still felt for them as they tackled this decision.

I was looking forward to getting to know Finn better after meeting him a bit in the previous two books and he turned out to be just the kind of guy that I expected and he was easy to fall for. I also really enjoyed the character of Dana, I loved when she would compare her real life happenings to things that she has read in books through her editing job, this made her more relatable for me as I’ve done the same thing (as I’m sure many readers have). I also really enjoyed getting glimpses of Mac and Lance’s lives now. I am pleased with the way this series ended.

“If everybody in town knew so much about everybody else, why was the police department having such difficulty nailing whoever was disrupting Dana’s life?”
“If you spend too much time looking back, you could miss the fork
in the road that would have led to an amazing future.”
