"Buried Secrets"
Irene Hannon

They both wanted quieter, safer lives.
But crime never sleeps . . .
and killers keep killing.

After years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant is ready for the kinder, gentler life of a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes department resources. Enter ex-Navy SEAL Mac McGregor, the detective sent by the county to assist on the case. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn't want this dead person telling any tales--and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.  

This was my first time reading Irene Hannon and I was not disappointed.  She knows how to right a good mystery.  

The chemistry between the two main characters was obvious from the start and they didn't try to hide it.  I like the fact that she didn't drag out the "I wonder if she's interested in me/I wonder if he's interested in me" scene.  They knew that they liked each other and didn't care to admit it.  My only complaint with this was the book seemed to focus more on their relationship than the actual murder case.

The villain of this story was pretty much insane.  She may have not been diagnosed as being crazy, but the way she kept going with her awful schemes pretty much confirms it.  

This is a great romantic-suspense book.  I'm looking forward to the next book.
