After a mad yet exciting race to finish my novella for the Love, Christmas 2 box set where I’m teaming up with 25 awesome bestselling authors, this was the first almost-free weekend I’ve had in a couple of months. What better way to spend it than reading a great book? My TBR pile is – well – piling up, but I’ve been sitting on this book for a while and craving the time to read it. I’m talking about Special Agent Charli, book #6 in the Undercover FBI series by Mimi Barbour.
This was the first book I’ve read from this author, and I confess I am hooked. I was reluctant to start a book in a series I knew nothing about, but I discovered the stories can be read and enjoyed as stand-alones, and one does not have to read other books in the series unless they want to – trust me, you will! Why? Find out from the 5* review I gave to this novel:
Burned out and craving a wonderful vacation with her beloved Gramps, special FBI agent Carolina “Charli” Madison is not too pleased when forced to change her plans, in order to protect Alicia, a troubled teenage girl who witnessed a murder. Since the killer is a notorious slippery gun for hire the bureau had their sights on for years, she accepts to protect the girl by pretending to be her step sister. Assigned to asist her is Major Blake Sebastian, who’s supposed to play the role of her ex-fiance. Her sexy fellow cop likes women a lot, but in his mid thirties he doesn’t enjoy his wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am lifestyle as much as he used to. While stuck under the same roof with Charli and Alicia, he begins to appreciate the rewards of settling down. And as the thriller/crime side of the story unfolds, Charli and Blake make a great team against a worthy adversary. All in all, a great read that has a bit of everything, and made me wistfully wish I had a Poppa John in my life, with all his kindness, quirkiness and ageless, non-judgmental humor. It was my first book by, Mimi Barbour, and I have discovered a new favorite author!
