    A charmer

    After a stint in India as a Sanskrist expert, Selena returns home to Manhattan to become a bored teacher until she reads a weird Internet ad and she surprises herself by responding. In the blink of a cyberspace eye, Selena is interviewed, tested and evaluated to determine whether she an 'extraordinary individual'.................................. The CIA hire Selena, who relocates to Virginia, where she receives top rate instruction at the ¿Farm'; Selena becomes an expert in hand combat, emergency medical care, and other needed skills for someone expected to work in the cold. She is considered a potential superstar except for a fear of flying that even Jung could not cure. Selena becomes friends with fellow student Iris and dates Stan, whose memory skills are incredible. However, stuff happens leading to the CIA Internal Affairs investigating Selena as the evidence points to her being a traitor; Stan roots for her hanging, but Selena refuses to take the fall when she knows someone set her up.................................. LOOSE LIPS is an enjoyable chick lit takes the CIA tale that will leave the audience laughing fro start to finish. The tale is exceptional when Selena goes through her excellent training as a top gun while her relationships are shaky until Stan enters her life. The tale remains fun, but loses some of its oomph when Selena becomes the subject of an investigation of a seditious act although she remains Pollyanna at the Farm..........................

    Pleasantly Surprised

    I picked this book off the library shelf having no idea what to expect. When I began reading it, I couldn't stop. The story was compelling - mostly because the characters and situations were so believable. It almost reads like a nonfiction memoir. It leaves me haunted with questions that I hope to discuss with other readers. 'Kudos' to the author. I hope we see more from her.

    WHAT A GREAT BOOK

    Find out what's it's like inside the CIA and it's training. This is such an enjoyable book and the characters were wonderful. I couldn't put it down and couldn't wait to see what happened at the end. Did she make it or not? You'll be surprised. Enjoyable. I hope Ms. Berlinski writes more.

    The First 90% was good, but I didnt like the ending

    I loved how this book started out. There was alot of stuff about the CIA that I found very interesting. It made me want to read more. But, then I got to the last few pages of the book, and I thought 'There's no way the author can sum up the book in these last few pages!' I found that the ending seemed rushed and and left me unsatisfied. Also the Epilogue was too repetitive, I found myself skimming through it.
