Book Description

When a CIA operative is captured nobody is ever sent to save him. Seasoned paramilitary operative Vince Hennessee knew the risks but the only way he could move on with the life he had planned with Sarah Stevens was to put down Nikolai Federov once and for all. What he didn’t expect was that Nikolai would find him first. Now it is up to Sarah and the rest of the American Swift team from Task Force 125 to find Nikolai and put together an armed strike force that can take out the Russian and rescue Vince before it is too late.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this the same author? May 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved the The Path to Freedom and encourage everyone to read it. But STOP THERE! I loved these characters. But this book - strike that - novella (even shorter than the last one) just didn't cut it for me. Characters that had been real and believable were lost as the scenario became too far-fetched for me to suspend my belief. The dialog, which had been sharp and entertaining in the first book, now on occasion made me laugh out loud and that's never a good thing when it happens in a serious scene. When one character says "He bleeds red, white, and blue." I called multiple friends and shared this while giggling uncontrollably. Is this a Marvel Comic and Captain America? Where was the sharp wit and cool factor that defined The Path to Freedom? The great descriptions that this author is so capable of showed up only in bits and pieces, but the believability wasn't there this time. I was unable to buy into the locations or the equipment in this one.

I'm not sure if the author was pressured or rushed to do the second and third books, but something is definitely missing compared to the outstanding first one. I felt as though the author was forcing everything in this book. While I was unhappy with the cliff hanger ending of the second book, I came in to this one hoping that the elements I loved in the first would be there. I was prepared to love it, because I love the language and style of the author. That didn't happen. I only hope that she can recapture the quality and strengths that abound in the first novel. I'm willing to give her another try based solely on the first book (as long as it isn't more than .99.) But I simply cannot recommend this one. It's not even worth the .99. Save your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 blue ribbons from Romance Junkies January 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Vince Hennessee and Sarah Stevens have plans to retire from the Agency and live out their own version of happily-ever-after but nothing is ever as simple as it seems. Vince has been abducted and the Agency has turned its back, fortunately the members of American Swift live by a different set of ethics and have no intention of abandoning Vince to whatever fate his abductor has planned.

Sarah has always been tough when it comes to missions. She handles knives and guns with the best of them and has no qualms when it comes to hand to hand combat either but this mission is drastically different. This time she's torn between panic over what could be happening to Vince and the knowledge that like any mission there are procedures and precautions that must be in place to ensure the results are favorable. That certainly doesn't make it any easier but having great friends who know how to handle weapons and are willing to risk everything to save Vince goes a long way when it comes to keeping her head in a difficult situation.

Vince is being held somewhere in the Middle East so using aliases Will and Sarah make the trip to Dubai where they'll wait for the rest of the team, Brian and Chris, to join them. If the CIA catches wind of what they're up to their careers will be over and that's just for starters. For the first time Sarah's experiencing the surge or fear, adrenaline and anxiety that the rest of the team members go through every time she goes in alone on an assignment. Once Brian and Chris arrive the plans to extract Vince from his abductor's clutches begin to take shape. Throw in some aid from a few unexpected allies and this is shaping up to be a rescue mission with a promising outcome.

Task Force 125 is a fun reading series, nothing horribly intense or depressing. Just good light reading that keeps you interested to the end of the book.

Loved these books. Easy reads. Good character development and plot. I sometimes hate how quickly the plot unfolds and the conclusion occurs, but that may be my need to not want to stop reading about the lives of these characters. Vince and Sarah are hard core characters who love hard and are adrenaline junkies. Great action and lust.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sara and the Boys to the Rescue November 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sara and Vince have to postpone their plans to sale off into the sunset when Vince gets captured by a Russian drug lord. I haven't finished the book yet, but it's full of Prada and Armani, fancy hotels and all the exotic locals we've come to expect of the Force 125 gang.

What happened to the Russian? I like a "girl" who kicks butt and Sarah does it well. Fast moving, as usual could elaborate more on the finish. Can't wait for next book

More About the Author

Lisa Pietsch was born Lisa Thibault in Lewiston, Maine. Her father was a carpenter and her mother a homemaker. It was a modest, middle-class world for this 3rd generation American whose family still spoke a mish-mash of French and English at home. Her grandparents were the first of her family born in the U.S. while her Thibault and Gravel forefathers were counted among the early few French settlers in Quebec.

Lisa has enjoyed many adventures in her lifetime and is still racking up more. A significant amount of time in the United States Air Force yielded far more adventures than she'd ever imagined. Though the photo at right is in dress blues, Lisa preferred combat boots, BDUs and a bandana for headgear (see below). She was most happy carrying machine guns and heavy packs of ammunition. But that was a long time ago.

Lisa traded in her combat boots for wedded bliss and motherhood. Little did she know, "Wedded" and "Bliss" didn't always go together. The bliss part would come later though.

Escaping into an alternate future, Lisa wrote several novels based around the character Sarah Stevens. The were well received and her experience in promoting them gave her the confidence to seek a life of her own as a novelist and marketing consultant.

She achieved considerable success in bringing in results for her clients but wondered if she might prefer to write full time. Finally, circumstances allowed her to explore it and she discovered that her passion really was in marketing but would continue to write on the side.

With such a strong writing and marketing background, publishing was a natural next step. She partnered with John Knotts, a fellow veteran, on a local startup called SAXtreme. SAXtreme was a lifestyle magazine for San Antonio, Texas, that featured exercise, outdoor and healthy living choices for the greater San Antonio area. SAXtreme enjoyed strong growth and great success in its first six months. Unfortunately, with Knotts taking on a new corporate position, moving to a new home and marrying - as well as Lisa also moving to a new home and taking on more marketing clients, SAXtreme was set aside.

New adventures, new skills, and finally buying a home of her own helped Lisa to find a direction that was the perfect for her. She partnered with Alexander Perez and Mike Morales of Tequila Aficionado. They had the knowledge of tequila, tequila culture and its community and she brought her passion for fine tequilas and social media and digital marketing skills. Tequila Aficionado embarked on a new direction with Mike Morales as CEO and Lisa as COO. Tequila Aficionado Media found great success as it realized it's 15th year as a direct to consumer multimedia publication for agave spirits.

Then something else happened. Lisa and Mike discovered they were just as good together personally as they were professionally.

Lisa now enjoys her work as COO of Tequila Aficionado Media as well as a Digital Media Marketing Consultant. In her marketing work, Lisa creates websites, interlinks clients' social networks in a delightful web of efficiency, advises them on marketing strategies for their books and brands, and much more. She also writes extensively for Yahoo in the area of Author Marketing while unschooling her two amazing boys.

Her passion for foreign languages and fine tequilas and mezcals has launched her into a deeper study of the Spanish language which consists of binge-watching telenovelas at home whenever possible. This inevitably leads to inspiration for more fiction writing so don't expect to stop seeing her books at Amazon.com anytime soon she's still writing!

Lisa currently lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her darling companion Mike, sons Teddy & Markie, two cats, and a three-legged dog.

She expects her next adventure to involve an extended stay in Mexico very soon. (For research, of course!)
