Review:

Ohmygoodness, this book.

“Rollercoaster read” doesn’t feel like it says quite enough–how about a Mission Impossible movie on steroids? From a high stakes kidnapping to a (majority female team!) special forces operation overseas, the action in this book is non-stop!

Piper and Zane are wonderful characters, both strong and capable, with absolutely amazing chemistry together. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, and the fact that I hadn’t yet read the other book in the Mission Medusa series wasn’t at all a problem–but you’d better believe I’ll be looking for it soon!

Rating: 4 stars / B+

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

About the author:

New York Times best-selling author Shirlee McCoy loves books. She loves reading them. She loves writing them. She loves sharing them with family, with friends, and with total strangers on airplanes and in doctor’s offices. It’s no surprise that she loves being an author. Her first book was published in 2004. Since then, she’s written more than 45 novels. Her books have appeared on the New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, and USA Today bestsellers lists.

Of course, her love for books pales in comparison with her love for family. When she’s not writing, she’s homeschooling her two youngest children and spending time with the people she cares about most. Her books are a reflection of her passion for relationships and community. An advocate for adoption and a firm believer in the power of faith, love, and compassion, Shirlee writes books that explore the dynamics between siblings, parents, children, and friends.
