What a great read!!! It was so good that I couldn’t put it down and when it ended I was really, really sad. One of the hallmarks of books by this author seems to be that she handles a mystery and tense situation with humor and great characters. This is the third – and I hope not the last – book in the Secrets and Spies series. I would really like to see Kit get his own book although he’s not been featured much so far.

What did I love:
—–All of the main characters, but particularly the H/h. Both of them are strong, smart, brave and so very drawn to each other. There are reasons they should and do mistrust each other so the author handles their inner turmoil brilliantly. Neither is manipulative and they tell each other the truth – it is just that past history and the situation makes each doubt the other.
—–The book is filled with wonderfully witty banter (I even laughed out loud a couple of times), sexual tension beyond belief, exceptionally good secondary characters, danger – you name it — it has everything that makes a book great!
—–I LOVE that we get to visit with Raven and Heloise from book two. They are as wicked as they were in their own book. Raven takes great delight in the fact that Richard has met his match and I love the way he needles him all through the book.

What didn’t I love:
—–Hard to say — I loved it all. However, I can say that I would have appreciated seeing more of Kit. That one little scene just absolutely wasn’t enough. I’m sure it is all build up to when he gets his own book, but — well — it would have been nice to have had a little dialogue to kind of see where he is now in his recovery. Maybe an epilogue-epilogue to catch up with what happened with Anton once he got to America. I liked him and wanted to see good things happen for him or maybe even get his own book too!
