An Eye for an Eye by Irene Hannon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book 2 in the Heroes of Quantico series- "An Eye for an Eye" by Irene Hannon follows along the same vein as her first book in this series. There's FBI agent Mark Sanders working as a field agent in St. Louis after accidently shooting a teenager in a robbery gone wrong and taking some time away from Quantico to deal with some of the emotional fallout from the shooting. While in St. Louis, he accidently runs into an old girlfriend, his first love in fact, Emily Lawson. Unfortunately during this chance encounter they find themselves smack dab in the middle of a shooting. All of this brings them together again and the old sparks are rekindled. But a lot has happened in both of their lives since their 20 year old "first love" romance, complicated by the fact that the shooter is not done with his mission.
I think Irene Hannon does a nice job in this book- she manages to mix suspense with romance and add in a dose of faith to her stories. With this story, I really liked the backstory on the "bad guy"- it made you really understand why he was doing what he was doing and even feel sorry for him- it made the character feel rounded out and greatly added to the story. I really liked the fact that she explored the whole chemistry of returning to your first love as well- that just worked. All in all It was a good read- suspense, romance, and an easy plot to follow.
