Kentucky Confidential by Paula Graves

The return of the wife he thought was lost and a baby he never knew existed will make this a Christmas to remember…

Captain Connor McGinnis has seen a ghost. Staring at a surveillance photo of a Kaziri immigrant, there can be no mistaking that the starkly beautiful—and visibly pregnant—woman in a head scarf is his wife, Risa. The woman he presumed was dead after her plane crashed into the ocean.

Risa McGinnis, relocated by the CIA when they learned of a price on her head, has settled into the guise of a widowed immigrant. Confronting Connor again resurrects sweet memories and a burning passion. But until this unknown enemy is captured, Risa must focus more on Connor's protection than on their attraction. After all, the strength of her marriage—and the safety of her baby—depends on it…

Title: Kentucky Confidential - Campbell Cove Academy Book 1 Author: Paula Graves Published: 9-20-2016 Publisher: Harlequin Pages: 272 Genre: Romance Sub Genre: Harlequin Intrigue Series; Women's Fiction: Suspense ISBN: 13: 9780373699353 ASIN: B01E36KB4G Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4.5 Stars I received a copy of "Kentucky Confidential" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Description of "Kentucky Confidential": The return of the wife he thought was lost and a baby he never knew existed will make this a Christmas to remember… Captain Connor McGinnis has seen a ghost. Staring at a surveillance photo of a Kaziri immigrant, there can be no mistaking that the starkly beautiful—and visibly pregnant—woman in a head scarf is his wife, Risa. The woman he presumed was dead after her plane crashed into the ocean. Risa McGinnis, relocated by the CIA when they learned of a price on her head, has settled into the guise of a widowed immigrant. Confronting Connor again resurrects sweet memories and a burning passion. But until this unknown enemy is captured, Risa must focus more on Connor's protection than on their attraction. After all, the strength of her marriage— and the safety of her baby—depends on it… My Review of "Kentucky Confidential": In order to protect her life, operative Risa McGinnis faked her death and left behind her a grieving husband. When Conner finds out it was all a lie and that Risa was pregnant with his child their protection becomes his main priority. Family loyalties are relied on as the threat to Risa and the baby continues to rise. Many of the characters are from previous books and are well established. The know the drill of the life they have chosen to live and accept the danger they live in. Fiercely protective of family, friends and patriotic to the extreme. These men and women inspire the reader to be the best that they can be. The suspense begins from the beginning and continues to build to the final resolution of the story. Fast moving with thrilling moments with heart pounding suspense. A book to be enjoyed by romance lovers, military and covert suspense enthusiast alike. My rating of "Kentucky Confidential" is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

A breathtaking thrill ride, with conspiracy theories, espionage, cover-up blowing on your face, and a baby on its way all happening to a lady who was supposedly dead. There was so much happening in this story it could have been overwhelming yet it all fit into the tale smoothly, the clues opening up like a ball of wool unraveling. The tension was high through the story, if not from the suspense and ever-present danger and the fear for their lives, then from the fact of Risa's resurrection from death, and the baby to be born any day now. I expected that the cover up for Risa's death would have had more center role in the story, that it would have been dealt with more details, more process, more in-depth. But both, or all characters seemed to accept the fact that Risa was alive rather easily, without too much angst and arguments. Of course, they didn't have much time to panic about anything since there were cruel culprits on their heels, ready to devastating annihilation to get what they wanted - Risa's death. There were times when the action was so fierce, I was holding my breath, waiting to see what happens. The spy world and government security agencies were a tangled web, trust was a rare commodity, anything goes to hide your own identity, and death was the ultimate sacrifice. It seems there's a lot of background information from the previous series that all comes together here and now. I felt like I was missing some information, even thought a lot was revealed when it came to the inter-agency relationships and operations. No, that's wrong, all we needed to know was there, just at times I started to wonder the story behind the secondary characters and their loved ones. And since everyone in this story was on 'need-to-know' basis... The romance was heartachingly bitter-sweet, yet filled with hope and a wishful prospect of better tomorrows. I believe this will be an exhilarating and dramatic series, where anything can be expected when it comes to operations and force of action. Can't wait for more! ~ Four Spoons
