Kate’s first case as an FBI agent is nothing like she expected. Posing as an intern at the Texas Capitol, she finds herself spending more time behind the computer than she does figuring out the case. Is Representative Jason Ashbury guilty of a third degree felony or is one of his staff to blame? And how is she supposed to handle the effect Patrick has on her?
Patrick was looking forward to guiding Kate through her first case, instead he was assigned to Ashbruy’s home office in Tyler. He cannot figure out either the case or his relationship to Kate. Are Ashbury’s dedicated employees covering for him, or the instigators? Will Kate ever let him be her friend, or will she continue to push him away?”(from Goodreads)
Well, it didn’t take me long to devour the second book. 😉 It seems like when I need a light but satisfying read, I always pick up something by this author…
I don’t know if I’ve ever read a sequel so different from the first book but so lovable in its own right. This one was less exciting and a lot slower in some ways, and I figured out parts of the mystery pretty early on, but it was still so neat to see them build a solid case. And they were UNDERCOVER! ❤ *grins hugely and happily* (Kim was so funny pushing her Asian accent…)
I liked all the “snooping”, the GPS tracking stuff, and when SPOILER ALERT! Kate’s cover is nearly blown. 😉 The party was extra fun too, and I thought it was hilarious and adorable how Patrick and Kate had to pretend not to know each other. 😉 (Can we talk about how accidentally cute their emails are?)
I’ll admit I was pretty sad when I found out who the villain was, but the overall spiritual message (and slight warning, even) of the book was really good. (Also, it was really neat to see who was the one to give them the tip. Don’t judge books by their covers!!)
Just a note that the main character is in MAJOR SPOILER ALERT! danger of being murdered at one point which got pretty intense and a little disturbing. END OF SPOILER
Best quote: Patrick nodded. “You did remember to get the security videos shut off, didn’t you?” “Yes, Mum,” Thomas said sarcastically, as he bent over Laura’s locked door.
Altogether, this was a great sequel, and I’m impatiently waiting for the third book. 😀
