"Definitely a page-turner. The twists and turns in this book are exceptional and make for an exciting read. Ms. Brown has the perfect unsuspecting heroine and a dashing hero."

"Hilarious. A wonderful read with lots of great "one-liners" and a terrorist plot to boot. Sex, too, from a WOMAN's viewpoint."

"I couldn't, (in the old school way) put this book down. On a number of occasions, I'd almost missed my commuter train stop."

"One of the best romantic mystery series out there. Started reading and couldn't put it down until the last word was read."

"Sexy and funny. Loved it! It was funny, twisted, and entertaining. The writer did not let me down at all. She wrote so well that I could not wait to finish this book. The lead character is strong yet weak, but she is so great."
