A modern Scarlet Pimpernel with a delightful twist and a dash of James Bond. All while being beautifully clean and free of smut or vulgarity!
The writing itself is superb. It's wonderful to be drawn completely into a story that pulls off the suspension of disbelief so well. I hate being yanked out of a story by poor writing, sappy melodrama, overblown Hollywood 'action', obvious info-dumping, clichés, etc. Happily, this book suffers from none of those downfalls. Bring on the smoke and mirrors!
I loved this book the first time I read it, but after finishing the author's Rea Jenson series, I have a whole new appreciation for the secondary characters here that we glimpsed in Walk of Infamy. After finishing that, I decided to read Pimpernel a second time, and fell in love all over again! This story stands quite fantastically on its own, though.
Thoroughly adventurous, clever, and comical, this book has my recommending stamp of approval. The story has some adult themes in content, including characters with low character and moral standards, but it's not presented in an uncomfortable way-saving where it leads to a great laugh. The romance is kept classy, and the language clean. 7 out of 10 on the clean and sweet scale. This author has captured my attention.
The characters were well developed, especially Claire. I really felt like I understood her, and the way she saw the world.
The Pimpernel does stand alone, but I would love it if this became the start of this series. There is so much more potential for intrigue.
Content: clean (no language, some kissing, mention of infidelity-not the hero or heroine)
Jack and his team have already crawled inside the details of this con, but, they cannot figure out why Claire would be involved. It becomes clearer when they bring her in and learn more about Claire's role. What they learn from Claire helps the team put their plan of action into place which is full of action and drawn out with more intrigue and cunning. Most of this comes from Jack because he is a magician and a master of disguise. He makes this tale a completely awesome, fun read. Each of the characters on Jack's team appear to have very interesting backgrounds, especially Margo. It is unfortunate that we did not get to see a run-in between Margo and Claire's mom like Claire had hoped to see. But, the entire experience helped Claire grow and it was great to see her get stronger throughout the book. I really hope this becomes a series.
