Lo is gorgeous and can catch any man's attention. In the past, her undercover work would involve flirting with the criminal to get information. The plan is for Lo to flirt with Steven and pump him for information on why he is on this cruise. Dan and Lo assume that Steven is meeting someone on the cruise ship or on one of the islands who has big plans for the mafia. Lo is placed in danger when her identity is discovered.
There is a budding romance between Lo and Lance. Since Lo's husband was killed several years ago, she has no interest in having a relationship. Lance is going through a divorce and certainly would not want to have a romance with one of his employees. Another major factor in this book is that Steven's family are discovered to be the people who killed Lo's husband. Lo is determined that they will pay for the death of her husband.
I loved this book and the characters. There were a few spelling errors but I was able to look past them. I hope there will be a sequel for Lo and Lance.
As always, P.M. Richter¡¦s main characters were very well developed. Lo is not the typical ¡§hard-as-nails¡¨ undercover operative I often come across in other novels; she has insecurities, doubts, and other emotions that felt realistic to me and helped me connect with her character more. And, as seriously reprehensible and disgusting as the villain Steve Marconi was, I was often smirking and laughing at some of Lo¡¦s descriptions and thoughts of her interactions with him.
There was a sweet romance element that I liked: there wasn¡¦t any hot sex; it was more about Lo and Lance really getting to know each other and what kind of person each of them is ¡V I found that refreshing because while I enjoy a good love scene in some books, I don¡¦t think every book must have repetitive, explicit love scenes in it to sell the story, and in some books, it just seems so forced at times. Anyway, this book does contain tragedy, sadness, dry humor, a bit of mystery, and enough action and danger to keep the story exciting.
Now, I just want to know if there will be another story with some of the same characters, and when P.M. Richter¡¦s NEXT book will be released¡K. º
The story was a very fun and entertaining read. I enjoyed the development of Dan and Linda's characters as the attraction between the two of them grew. I could picture the cruise ship, the fellow passengers, and the exotic locations they toured while on land.
I would give this book 4.5 stars because there were a couple of things that pulled me from the story; I found the information about Lolita's husband and their background repetitive throughout the book. I ended up skimming over those parts because it didn't move the story forward. I also found the ending a bit disappointing. It seemed to end too abruptly for me.
But, all in all, I really enjoyed the story and will look for more books from Pamela M. Richter.
The story brings two spies, Lo and Dan, aboard a Caribbean cruise ship where they are given the assignment to gather information from members of a crime family who are vacationing aboard the ship. Spying and information gathering ensues and we find out that Lo has ties to the crime family she didn’t realize existed.
The author writes the psychology of her characters from her own knowledgeable background and seems to have done her research when it comes to intelligence gathering, which makes the story line believable.
When I first began reading this novel I wondered how the author would manage the location restrictions inherent to a cruise ship, but Richter manages to handle the restrictions well and takes advantage of just about every location on shipboard including the ship’s ladies rooms. She also takes the reader on land to experience exotic ports of call, which was a nice change of pace.
Richter’s story is witty, well put together and well written. If I had one complaint it might be that there seemed to me to be a wee too much dialogue. But that is my personal opinion and should not keep a reader from enjoying this lively and fun romp over the high seas.
