Bookshelf Friday - Secret Service Setup by Jessica R. Patch

With the craziness of life lately I've been neglectful of my Bookshelf! But I've had the chance recently to read a few books that I can't wait to add onto it:) Today we're starting with the release of Jessica R. Patch's Secret Service Set-up. Here's a short blurb, and we'll chat on the other side!

Secret Service agent Evan Novak becomes the target of multiple hit men when someone puts a two-million-dollar bounty on his head. Is it the gunrunner he’s tracking...or a traitorous agent? Framed and wanted, Evan reluctantly accepts protection from bodyguard Jody Gallagher, his former love who lost her Agency career because of him. But then the bounty is raised to include Jody…

If you've read the other books in this Security Specialists series, you'll recognize Jody from there along with a few of the supporting cast in this story. And while the continuity of characters is fun, it's not necessary for you to have read any of Patch's earlier books to enjoy this one! 

The plot moves fast and follows the pattern of this romantic suspense. However, Patch is becoming known for her ability to weave in twists and turns that even readers of the genre won't expect, and she once again delivers in this read. She also is masterful with her construction of characters, allowing them to be flawed and likable in the same breath. Her ability to write chemistry shines again within these pages as does her dialogue. One thing I've come to appreciate with her books is her sense of humor that always makes it to the page, even when writing suspense. It makes a good balance between heart-stopping moments.

If you've yet to read a work by Patch, go ahead and start here! I promise, she'll quickly become one of your favorite authors:) Happy reading, Friends!
