    Sneak and Rescue

    Wow,this is one Mills and Boon novel I am very impressed with.The plot was wonderful thought-out and the scenes jelled well with one another.I also loved that the characters had time to develop and you really got a chance to know them.The slogan of this novel should be "nothing is as it seems" and that is true many times in the novel.Shirl Henke really wrote a good story soaked in murder-mystery-esque fun and tons of secrets and truths to find out about.This is a story worth reading! I love the Spacer part that was really important to the novel and made it fun to read about as well! Thumbs up for this Bombshell novel.A true treat of romance,a kick-butt heroine who does not like to be pushed around and pure action at it's best.I think the only thing I did not like was somewhere in the middle,the flow of plot got stale but do not get me wrong,it flowed well at the start and end and Shirl's writing may be easy to understand at times but hard at others so she needs consistency.

    Rescue a copy of Sneak and Rescue

    Samantha Ballenger, private investigator and retriever of lost people, has a new case. When Seventeen year old Farley Winchester steals his dad¿s vintage Jaguar and goes missing, Upton Winchester, IV, dispassionately enlists Sam to find him and bring him home to Miami. Farley believes he¿s a secret agent for the Confederation of Planets, an illusion fostered by his delinquent friend, Elvis P. Scruggs. Elvis? Yes, Elvis, who¿s one surprise after another. But I¿m getting ahead of myself. Sam is shocked to receive unexpected information related to the case from her husband, reporter Matt Granger. Who would have guessed that Matt knows everything about the Confederation, including secret handshakes? He tells her that if Farley¿s a true fan of the show Space Quest (a clever takeoff of Star Trek), he¿ll be in St. Louis at the big Space Quest Con. Sam obligingly takes off from Miami for St. Louis. But right from the beginning, even on the way to meet Winchester, she encounters worrisome little distractions¿like bullets and sideswipes and alligators. Jeez, people trying to kill her. And Farley, and anyone else in the general vicinity. This is the second Sam Ballenger and Matt Granger book. Matt and Sam are married, but she¿s a very independent private investigator who was raised without a pot to¿ Well, you know what I mean. The proverbial silver spoon filled Matt¿s mouth when he came into the world, but he¿s also pretty darn independent, choosing to break from expectations and make his own way rather than be dictated to. His refusal to accept his rightful share of the family fortune and Sam¿s innate frugality are continuing bones of contention between the two. They have other disagreements¿mainly about the risks Sam takes in her rescue/retrieval services¿but their love and respect is clear. I liked Sam¿s thriftiness. She hates paying someone to help watch Farley at the convention and bunks with a friend and two demon children rather than spring for a room. And while I appreciated Matt¿s willingness to give his wife freedom to be herself, I liked even more that he doesn¿t hesitate to cross into her world when he thinks she might take that step too far into danger. This is the first Bombshell I¿ve read. The pace is very fast and I enjoyed seeing how Shirl used sentence structure and wording to impart action and then to slow the speed. Her dialogue is sharp and witty. Details are abundant, but without wordiness. I¿ll be looking for the preceding book, Finders Keepers, where Sam and Matt meet and fall in love.

    an entertaining action-packed tale

    Senior accountant partner Upton Winchester IV hires retrieval specialist Samantha Ballanger to bring home his delusional son, a runaway ¿Spacer¿ Farley. Though suspicious of all clients, Upton mentions that realtor Jayson Page Layton referred him to her so she accepts the job due to the reference. However when Sam finds the space cadet, she realizes something does not add up as the kid seems zoned out on a drug yet still appears normal. Instead of taking Farley home, she decides to enlist the help of her husband Miami Herald reporter Matt Granger to keep the teen safe though her spouse also bullies his way into her case in order to keep her safe.----- At the same Farley¿s friend DEA Agent Elvis Scruggs uses the kid to get at his father, who is under suspicion of racketeering. Unlike Sam who risks her life to keep Farley out of harm¿s way, Elvis wants to use the lad as a pawn though he hopes the kid comes out of it alive, collateral damage sometime happens in his line of work.----- SNEAK AND RESCUE is an entertaining action-packed retrieval tale starring a strong female assisted in this case by her spouse and to a degree (mission first) DEA Agent in a case in which nothing is what it seems on the surface. The fast-paced thriller is fun to read because of the solid cast as this time Matt is at her side more as an equal than the retrieved that he was in her last case (see FINDERS KEEPERS). Readers will enjoy Sam¿s latest snatch story.---- Harriet Klausner
