Release Date: October 6, 2020
Hate mail was one thing. This was quite another.
Radio talk show host Eve Reilly is used to backlash from her pot-stirring on-air commentary and interviews. But now it seems a disgruntled listener is resorting to more than angry words to express their displeasure. When a suspicious package arrives on her doorstep, Eve turns to law enforcement for help.
Police detective Brent Lange can't find any evidence to link the string of unsettling incidents that follows, but he's convinced they're connected. As the harassment grows more menacing, it becomes clear someone wants Eve's voice silenced--permanently.
But unless he can track down her elusive foe, the gutsy woman who is willing to take risks for what she believes--and who is swiftly winning his heart--may not survive.

This book was definitely interesting and kept me turning pages.
The story starts out with Eve receiving what she believes to be a bomb delivered to her doorstep. Though it is later determined to be fake, she continues to receive threats. An on-air phone call from someone offering information about her past, and threatening notes telling her to stop her show, are among the messages she begins receiving. Brent Lange, a detective working her case, quickly becomes drawn in by Eve and his concern for her.
Yes, you guessed it, they quickly realize they are attracted to each other, and a sweet story ensues, though complicated.
While this book didn’t feel overly suspenseful, I did find it difficult to put down. And though the ending felt somewhat predictable, there were a few surprises. One that will feel believable to some, and others might highly question.
The character development worked for me, they felt real, and their actions were believable for the most part.
At this point (no pun intended), I’m excited to continue with the series.
With the country in such political unrest, I feel the topic of Eve’s moral, conservative talk-show stand might come across as more of the tale too many. However, I did find it interesting regardless of beliefs.
What I Liked
This felt like several stories in one with multiple suspects. And these suspects were all people with believable character traits.

This book had everything I want to see in a romantic suspense novel.There was plenty of action and the pool of suspects was large enough to keep me guessing. There were just enough clues to make me think I had the culprit figured out, and then maybe I didn’t.
The main characters were both relatable people with plenty of chemistry, who had me invested in their lives and in the outcome of their story. They were both well written and believable as were the side characters.
I loved the thread of family, friendship, and faith that was woven into the story, and I’m already looking forward to the next book in the series.

I always enjoy an Irene Hannon book. Her suspense books take me back to St Louis, where I lived for twenty years. This one is the start of a new series about three sisters called Triple Threat. Eve Reilly is featured in Point of Danger.
Eve has firm convictions and voices them on her morning talk radio program. I appreciate the way Ms. Hannon has Eve articulate her conservative viewpoints. Very clear and well reasoned out.
The story follows threats to Eve and the attempt to uncover the person behind the harassment. Because of her case, she meets detective Brent Lange, and they both realize that attraction is building. But with each having high profile jobs with a risk factor, do they go forward or take a step back? Eve and Brent have deeply held convictions and take their faith seriously.
The fun part of reading this story is trying to figure out who the bad guys are. Ms. Hannon keeps you guessing and the pages turning. The crowd and demonstration scenes were very realistic and scary. You could feel the tension. I liked the dynamics between Eve and her sisters, Cate and Grace, and look forward to reading their stories in this series.
This was a great start to a new series. Keep them coming!
