The last in the “Men of Honor” trilogy, “Tangled Webs” is a nice wrap-up of the McGregors brothers series. Plenty of drama, tension, and personal struggles to keep the reader turning each page. A little bit predictable, but worth reading for the insight into the relationships and how hurting people react to the world around them. Some will rise above, and some will succumb to the pressures.
The youngest McGregor brother, Finn secludes himself in a cabin in the woods to rest, recuperate, and remove himself from his overbearing – if well meaning – family. The plan works well for the first two days, and then Finn has second thoughts about a month spent all alone. Until a shriek in the distance sends him charging through the forest in the night. What – who – he finds will change his life forever.
Dana Lewis hopes that her grandparents’ cabin will bring the peace she hasn’t been able to find since that day in New York City. Hurt both mentally and physically, she buries herself in the woods by the lake without even cell service. But that doesn’t stop the nightmares. And then one night a stranger comes crashing through her window.
While the books stand well alone, reading them in order adds more layers to this final story. See my review of book #2, “Thin Ice.”
