    As soon as I began reading, I knew I was in for a treat. This exciting suspense novel kept me turning pages long after my tired eyes screamed for me to stop. I completed the 400-page novel in two days! I resented the need for sleep!<BR/><BR/>The dialogue is done so well. The French chef's syntax is "spot on."<BR/><BR/>This is the second in the series. It can be read it without reading the first one, Frasier Island and is a stand-alone novel. However, the beauty of reading a series in order is that the characters are already known. I loved Pierre before I opened the book, and I had heard about Marie, who is his perfect match. I can't wait for the third Inside Story. Buy a copy, but be prepared to lose some sleep!

    Married young, Marie Belanger has matured these past two years in Japan while stationed with her Navy husband Pierre. But she¿s glad to finally be flying home to visit her family in Maine, even if her husband must finish one last hush-hush assignment before he can join her. Having moved from the shelter of her father¿s house straight into her husband¿s caring arms, Marie has never really been on her own. This trip halfway around the world should prove her new adult status, to herself at least. But even before she boards the plane, she has an uneasy feeling, and her seat-mate also appears anxious. So when Marie changes planes in San Francisco and happens to witness the woman¿s murder, that uneasy feeling takes on real faces. Sinister faces. Marie¿s stamina and her faith are sorely tested as she struggles to outwit and outrun the evil men bent on capturing her for the secrets she unwittingly carries. Not to mention the FBI, NCIS, CIA, and the police who want to catch her first. It¿s a cross-country chase that ends in the Atlantic Ocean with Marie hanging off a sixty-foot yacht. The bait was subtle at first, but I was soon so thoroughly hooked I had to read the book in one sitting. 'Well, not literally.' You won¿t be able to put it down either.

    Fast-paced action. Not at all boring...

    Think The Bourne Identity meets Blink by Ted Dekker and you'll get the same kind of riveting suspense. But in Finding Marie the pursuers are not the USA, nor Arabs from the Middle East, but communists from China. This tale of international intrigue had me on the edge of my seat. Marie's pursuers never gave her a rest. She had to outrun them and in the process had many close calls. At one point more criminals join the chase and she has people coming at her from all sides. The violence picks up and Marie is terrified, but crafty as she is, she manages to evade them. I enjoyed this story and love the author's pacing and writing style. There is even an engaging romantic subplot among secondary characters that keeps the story moving along. Much like in Frasier Island, the previous novel by the same author, Finding Marie is non-stop action. If you love heart pounding suspense, you'll want to read this book.
