Just how deep is Dark Ambitions?

Dark Ambitions by Irene Hannon: Book Review with Revell Reads

Book Review:

Heather and Rick created one of my favorite fictional relationships this year. The immediate attraction, and their acceptance of it, made Dark Ambitions read with a smooth transition of character growth.

Since both main characters have some heaviness in their past, I was curious how much their past would affect their decisions and their choices. Irene Hannon offered both a chance to let their past hold them back, and Heather’s and Rick’s choices showed how well adjusted they are to their situations. They still have some work to do, but they’re not incapacitated by past mistakes or trauma.

Suspense wise, Dark Ambitions moved at a slower than what I anticipated, but I found I didn’t mind. Instead of Heather and Rick running for their lives through the entire novel, they have a chunk of time where they’re simply working together and developing a relationship that has the chance to withstand the test of time

Spiritually, very few mentions of God, but they do show up in a natural manner that never seems forced.

I requested a copy of this book from Revell Reads. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Former Army Night Stalker Rick Jordan usually has his camp for foster children to himself during the winter months. But someone has visited recently–leaving a trail of blood. One of the two clues left behind tips Rick off to the identity of his visitor, who soon turns up dead. The police deem it an accident, but Rick isn’t convinced. With the help of private investigator Heather Shields, he sets out to decipher the remaining clue. Except someone doesn’t want them to succeed–and will stop at nothing to keep them from finding the truth.

With her trademark psychological suspense ratcheting up the tension on every page, bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon takes you on a search for a cold-blooded killer with an ambitious goal and deadly intent.
