I liked the premise of the book, however I feel that it would have been better if were developed into a longer format. The progression of the character dynamics seemed a little rushed, which to me, took away from the suspenseful nature of the book. I would like to see more of the characters in the rest of the series, but I do wish there had been more time to get to know them in this installment.
In Keeping the Spy, author Victoria Pinder created an intriguing spy tale. When small town librarian, Sherry Worthing's fiancé, Russian Victor Kravenski's murdered, she finds herself on the run from someone trying to kill her. Frightened, alone except for her guard dog Joe, she's terrified and insecure. Seeing villains around every corner, she's runs to Miami looking for shelter from the storm.
Liam Collins and Sherry attended school together. Each unaware the other carried a torch, their lives went separate ways. Now billionaire Liam, a CIA agent, ready to retire, takes one last job in locating and bringing in Sherry for espionage. Unknown to Sherry, Victor was a spy; holding secret documents he intended to sell. Now the buyers and the USA government want the documents.
Come along with Sherry and Liam as they run for their lives from friend and foe alike. Will romance bloom after all these years? Can Liam protect Sherry and prove her innocence? Grab a beverage, get comfortable, my contemporary suspense romance novel review Keeping The Spy follows
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Keeping The Spy's an easy to read and entertaining book. Perfect for an afternoon of lazing on the beach, on the porch or your favorite easy chair. Pinder filled Keeping The Spy with twists and turns as well as suspense, packing it full of action. The action starts early and does not let up as the reader follows Liam and Sherry from one end of the USA to another.
Sherry's character's seen as frightened to death by the situation she finds herself in. She's insecure with relationships and doesn't see herself as Liam does. While Liam oozes confident; not only is he a billionaire, he's handsome and confident. He is man of confidence in everything except Sherry; with her he is an insecure mess. I loved now he felt about Sherry and the fact the attractive went back to high school. Pinder portrayed them as star-crossed loves, who just can not connect. Pinder allowed the emotion and attraction to grow throughout the story-line.
A nasty piece of work, Pinder's villains made my skin crawl. Pinder developed her characters well and the plotting fast paced; filled with suspense, intrigue and attraction. Finally, in concluding my reviews for contemporary suspense romance novel Keeping The spy, I found a book which held my attention with realistic characters, suspense, and action. I found a few minor editing errors which do not impact my enjoyment of the book.
KEEPING THE SPY RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4
I found, Keeping The Spy, suitable for anyone who enjoys a light contemporary romance filled with action and suspense.

Liam's boss suspects that Sherry is trading secrets with the North Koreans and wants Liam to bring her in for questioning. Sherry is on the run after her fiancé Victor was killed and her car and home ransacked. Victor's last words "trust no one" has caused Sherry to look at everyone as a potential assassin. Sherry is a nervous wreck by the time she bumps into her high school crush Liam at the airport after disembarking from her flight to Miami. When Liam tells Sherry "I need you to come with me", she runs off on Liam. Liam has no choice but to chloroform Sherry.
Liam takes Sherry, her dog Joe and her luggage onto his private plane to head to his family's winter cabin to hide out but when trouble follows them, they go on the run. The mystery of how trouble always manages to find them is solved when Liam finds a tracker on Sherry and after removing it, Liam takes Sherry to his fortified home to hide out. Sherry doesn't believe Liam, the guy she's been crushing on since high school, showed up out of the blue to help her. After all, why would Liam help her when he's hated her all his life? Back in high school, all he ever did was stare at her. Liam has always wanted to talk to Sherry but would become tongue-tied in her presence. Liam's crush on Sherry never went away and he's been secretly checking in on Sherry during his home visits.

Keeping the Spy is a gripping story that's action packed, hair-raisingly suspenseful and scorchingly hot. Victoria Pinder's latest book had me hooked with an exciting storyline and engaging characters with loads of chemistry. This book is a must read!
