Canada is probably the last place you’d expect to find an American spy. But even idyllic Ottawa has its deadly secrets–and so does CIA operative Talia Reynolds. She can climb through ventilation shafts, blend in at the occasional diplomatic function, even scale buildings (small ones). But there’s one thing she can’t do: tell her aerospace engineer boyfriend Danny about her Top Secret occupation.
It worked for a year, keeping Danny in the dark, keeping him away from danger, keeping her secrets. And then Talia finally catches a hot case: Fyodor Timofeyev. Russian. Aerospace executive. Possible spy?
She can make this work, too–until Danny needs her at the same time her country does. And when Fyodor targets Danny? Suddenly her schedule isn’t the only thing suffering. Now to save her country and her secrets, Talia must sacrifice the man she loves.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This was a fun spy story told by a slightly bumbling female CIA agent stationed in Canada. This is a clean romance read, with a heavy dose of humour.
The first half of the story was a little slow, but the second half more than made up for it in action scenes.
Talia was a realistic heroine in that she was smart yet blind when it came to her boyfriend. It got quite annoying that she was totally in the dark at how her actions looked from his angle. You would think that since she has a huge secret, she would be a little more aware of the image she was projecting.
Overall, this was an amusing story that a “what could go wrong, will” mentality. It made for fun, light-hearted reading.
