As always, Mr. Wells created characters you can believe in. The only issue I had with the character is that the girl all of a sudden becomes irate and immature over something that was actually her own fault. But.. of course 24 year old CAN be immature and not thinking sometimes. The only issue with grammar or formatting involved the lack of justified margins. I only mention that because I know it is important to some readers, and it does not matter at all to others.
In response to one of the negative reviews, I would like to explain that the story starts off with a fantasy of Heather in her limo, living the rich life and entering the building of a company she owns. Apparently the reviewer did not understand this is a fantasy that she is having.. while walking 40 blocks to work in heels and pushing her way through the streets of New York City to her entry level job where her 4 year college degree is wasted by serving coffee to her bosses. Anyone who read more than two paragraphs would know this.
Thanks Mr. Wells for another great story!

Reviewed by R. Murry
A simple act of receiving an E-mail, which most people would consider spam, is the catalyst of these thrilling introductions into this five book series written by Mr. Wells. His main character, Heather, is a resourceful intelligent red head, who has a stressful money problem.
Because of her family's financial turmoil, she opens a second E-mail because the first message came true to her amazement and made her angry she didn't take advantage of its fruition. This is when her adventure into the world of international monetary affairs turns into nerve raking events for her and the reader. However, there are some pleasant moments she encounters.
Mike pulls his readers in and keeps them glued to the page hoping Heather will reach her goals. Each endeavor seems strange at first glance. Heather overcomes obstacles by wit, fate and luck. Mr. Wells writes each event in a way that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat, wondering if Heather's world wind will come to an end, solving her problems.
There is a love affair in the background of this nail biting suspense story. It's kept there, because Heather is doing her thing globe hopping to resolve her problem first, keeping her lover in dark of its existence. The affair culminated to her satisfaction.
We all want an underdog story to come to a happy ending. This one may because of the lead character's ability to go with the flow of events and not get bogged down in self-pity. She moves on, knowing she has the strength inside her to handle what is thrown at her even to the doubts of her friend.
Mike Wells has me hooked into finishing this series. If you are not prone to heart attacks, this series should be on your "To read list."
Anyway - that's my pitch. I'll just add that this really has it all - action, plot, thrills, hope, fear, dread, unpredictability, emotion, weakness, strength, love (? - hmmmm) passion, power, & sin! - and with Mike's sense and talent to bring it with quality & style! You will not be disappointed!
Thanks again, Mike, for sharing your wonderful talent. I shall enjoy re-reading this and look forward to your next release!
