Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
After losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail--addressed in her sister's handwriting. And the note inside claims she is still alive.

FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case, but he's coming up with more questions than answers. If Ginny Reed is still alive, who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game or the target of a sinister plot?

My Review:
Thin Ice is a Christian romantic suspense novel. It's the second book in a series, but you don't need to read the first novel to understand this one. This novel didn't spoil the storyline of the previous novel.

The focus seemed more on the romantic attraction than the case, and very little progress was made on the case until near the end. The suspense came from physical danger to those involved.

The heroine started out very careful when talking about the case, but she got sloppy as time went on despite the danger. She was also reluctant to provide names of who might be doing this and stops trying (rather than grasp at tenuous connections) when those don't generate leads. While she's a sweet gal who thinks the best of everyone, it came across to me as if she cared more about the FBI not bothering her acquaintances than her sister's rescue.

The Christian element was shown more in how the characters treated people and acted than through discussions about God. There was no sex or bad language. Though not my favorite novel by Hannon, I'd still recommend this enjoyable and interesting novel.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
