Devin and Grace, his high school girlfriend, have a quick wedding after being reunited and life couldn't be more perfect--until Devin gets his master's degree and finds himself on assignment in Hong Kong, halfway around the world from his new wife. And the worst part is, he can't even tell her what he's really doing. There's no way that I could handle the life of a spy, but I sure love reading about these suspenseful situations. It's ironic that I've recently learned of a few friends who have had secrets in their marriages. Secrets can be harmful and they can be bad, but who would think they could be downright dangerous? As Devin struggles to uncover who wants him dead, Grace is dealing with an intense situation of her own. This book had me on the edge of my seat and what makes it that much better is that these characters are real and normal, just everyday people. The thought that this could really happen is creepy, but that's what hooked me and reeled me in. As the suspense reaches it's climax, I was still grasping at straws for a motive and a suspect. Although clues are given along the way, I couldn't make things connect in my mind, which is what I absolutely love about a mystery suspense thriller. I love this author's work and wasn't disappointed with this story at all. Bring on the next one soon, please! Content: mild violence (attempted murder, kidnapping, etc); mild romance (kissing, mild innuendo). *A copy was provided by the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are solely my own.*
