Book Description

When John Smith arrives in San Francisco’s international airport, he is not there for a business meeting. He is a paid assassin. His next target? Thirty-three-year-old Abigail Morgan, the best CIA field agent the San Francisco branch has ever seen.

Realizing that this is a fight Abigail just can’t win, she vanishes from existence, resurfacing thousands of miles away as Allyson Rowe, a quiet small-town bartender, not an ounce of the confident and assertive Agent Morgan left. Bartending might not be as exciting as CIA work, but at least she will be safe.

But suddenly life isn’t so safe anymore when a man appears in the bar, sits in the same stool each night, and stares. At her. Is he just a persistent suitor or could he be something infinitely more devious?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun read! April 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Abigail is an interesting character, and it's really fun to follow her through her personal transformation. She seems so self-aware when it comes to what's missing from her life, and those things manifest themselves in "Allyson." I can't imagine what it would be like to be scared for my life every second of the day, constantly looking over my shoulder, and watching for the enemy. Allyson does it with finesse and finds her true self in the process. Definitely recommend!

2.0 out of 5 stars The preview turned me off to this story May 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
While some might think this is not a valid review because I haven't read the complete book, I feel that just reading the 1st chapter gave me enough insight into the quality of the book.

I'm usually leery of any book that has only a few reviews and most, if not all, of them are 5-star. Being the cynical person that I am, I make the guess that those reviewers were written by the author, or the author's family & friends - especially when those reviewers have written no other reviews. When I see this, I read the preview, and make my judgement based on what I read there. If the book doesn't capture me at that point, I don't download or buy it.

I'm not giving away the plot, but the first chapter is completely inane. John Smith gets off a plane in San Francisco, and makes his way to the car rental counter (a well-known car rental agency). He gets annoyed at the clerk who asks for proof of insurance, and pulls out his his gun, screws on the silencer & points the gun at the clerk's head, then jumps over the counter to go after the clerk. AND NOBODY NOTICES!!!!!

Has this author ever been to a busy airport like San Francisco, and seen the HORDES of people at the car rental counters when a plane has just spewed out hundreds of passengers, not to mention how many planes land within a few minutes of each other? There's no way this scene could happen except in some B-grade action flick. Were there no other passengers on line at this or any other counter, no security people, or other passengers milling around, nobody screaming, nobody calling the police?

When I read a chapter like this, it just turns me off, because I make the assumption that the rest of the book is going to be just as silly. I might be wrong, but for the most part, my assumption turns out correct - for me. Others may enjoy this book, and good for them. I like a little reality in my fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be dissapointed. June 28, 2012
By Blake
Format:Kindle Edition
The first thing I noticed about this book is that the language was good. This is something I am very picky on, if a book doesn't have very good language, and by languege I mean word use, style, whether the message is communicated properly; if the language isn't good, I generally don't read it.

The second thing I noticed was that it got into the action quickly and stayed there. This was very satisfying especially after having recently read Tolsoy's The Resurrection.

All in all it was an all-around good book. I couldn't find anything in particular wrong with it. It was good in all areas. But then I couldn't find anything particularly right with it either; nothing stuck out as being magnificently written. There wasn't a niche as far as I could tell. The language was good, but it wasn't Aeschylus; the references to different places was good, but it wasn't Victor Hugo; the understanding of human nature was good, but it wasn't Leo Tolstoy. Finally there were a few good thoughts, like when you talked about someone gradually being snared into doing wrong, but there were only a few and it certainly wasn't Fyodor Dostoevsky's quality. This is my criticism; the author didn't find a niche. But then again, maybe she did find it? There aren't many authors who are good at everything, almost all of them have at least one strong fault. This applies to even the best authors, so maybe that's the author's specialty? It's certainly a great one to have.

But anyway, I enjoyed this work. You won't be dissapointed by this book, I sure wasn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read! July 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I picked this up when it was offered for free and it turns out that Allyson Rowe is a great read. She's very honest and her inner monologue can be quite entertaining. The story produces very vivid detail in one's mind, which is why I read books in the first place. This will truly transport you into someone else's shoes. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because, while this is a great book, it isn't one of those truly epic books you return to year after year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting. May 2, 2014

Not totally believable. But it is fiction. It was free so cheap entertainment. I have said all I want to so why the requirement for more than what I wrote?

More About the Author

From the Author:

Nearly everyone has a moment, that defining heartbeat, in which they decided what they wanted to be when they grow up, a writer, dancer, pilot, engineer; the possibilities are as endless as our imaginations. For me, as long as I can remember I have always been writing stories; imagining up plot lines, creating characters, etc. In the fourth grade my mother told me I should be a writer.
So I wrote a story, and it was awful. Then I wrote a few more and they weren't much better. I gave it up in college for a while and focused on other things, discovered a love of plants, and got a degree in Horticulture.
Then, right before the birth of my second child, the writing bug struck again and I started writing in earnest. Now I'm addicted to it and have no plans on stopping. Unfortunately, I have more plot ideas than time!
The aforementioned time is swallowed up by being a mom of three kids (one brand new), and taking care of my house and yard. Every year, just like the tulips, you will find me outdoors once the snow has melted.

Interview with Author:

What is your personal motto?
Murphy's Law with a twist: Anything that can go wrong will--I add in, "but if you are prepared for it to go wrong, then you have a chance that it could go right!"

If you could meet anyone in history who would it be, and why?
Albert Einstein; and not just because he was a genius. It's because his personality appeals to my own quirkiness. There is this story about how Albert Einstein liked to take walks across Princeton's campus during snowstorms, wearing sandals, and eating an ice cream cone. Any guy who LIKES doing that must be worth knowing!

If you could be any person or thing in the world what would you be?
My cat, that girl has it so good¬; food when she wants it, naps anywhere at the drop of a hat, all the love and affection she can stand, and best of all, no responsibilities. What could be better?

What is your greatest fear?
Snakes! I swear my throat seizes up every time I see one and I think I am going to asphyxiate, have a heart attack, or both. And the little buggers know it too! I have seen more snakes in the last year than most people see in a life time, I'm pretty sure my family thinks I'm nuts since they have yet to see even one.

If you could have a superpower what would it be?
I'm thinking heat vision to shoot all of those snakes! No, seriously (can you be serious AND answer this question?), I think I would like to be able to fly, that way I could go anywhere I want, whenever I want, without having to take an airplane.
