    Great book that can be read as a stand alone or after the first one in the series. Great dialogue and enetertaining secondary characters.

    DIAMONDS ARE TRULY FOREVER was the second book in the Agent Ex s

    DIAMONDS ARE TRULY FOREVER was the second book in the Agent Ex series by Gina Robinson. However, you most certainly do not need to have read the first book to enjoy the rollicking, tongue in cheek laugh-fest that was this book. Full of James Bond, Get Smart, Spy vs. Spy and lots of other pop culture spy references, Diamonds are Truly Forever was a laugh-out-loud fun read.

    Drew and Staci almost died thanks to her loose lips and they are getting a divorce. She can’t lie and he was all about lies. But, despite it all, they are both very much in love with each other. When Emmett, Drew’s boss, sends Drew after some bad guys in his home town, Staci got enlisted into the mission. Staci wasn’t exactly safe herself; she was in the crosshairs of someone who needed her to die. Add a Mom who thought her husband was cheating on her, a couple of best friends who are wives of spies, a Canadian spy, and some hilarious bad guys and you have a great cast of characters.

    Most of those characters are under-used in this book, which was both a positive and a negative. I would have liked the secondary characters to have been a bit more fleshed out, but leaving them very secondary helped to keep the book a great standalone read. The plot definitely overshadowed the characterization and the use of pop culture spy references as shorthand for the roles was unfortunate. It did not, however, take anything away from the plot.

    The plot and the very self-conscious use of spy references are why this book worked so well for me. While we knew who the bad guys and the good guys were – there was no working to figure it out – the fun was in watching how everyone got from point A to point B. The plot didn’t stagnate anywhere or stay in any one moment too long.

    Both the plot and characters were so over the top, there was no way to do anything but enjoy this book.

    Supplied by publisher for an honest review.

    RATING: 4
