Shelve under: Spies, Russian, Librarian Spies, Conspiracies.
Librarian and rookie CIA covert operative Quinn Ellington revises her honeymoon plans when she and her brand-new spy husband uncover a drug trafficking ring stretching from the Caribbean to St. Petersburg. Turquoise waters, white sand, and intra-agency relations provide a lush backdrop for raiding enemy strongholds, tailing movie stars, and dodging more than a few bullets. Meanwhile, Quinn’s unique skills prove indispensable in luring a dangerous villain into the proper trap.
In An Uncommon Honeymoon (Librarian and the Spy Escapade #3) by Susan Mann, Quinn Ellington is married at last, but not even the honeymoon means she can take time off from being a spy. However, investigating a drug trafficking ring isn't going to be easy, especially when her brand-new husband is so protective of her. But the closer they get to catching the bad guys, the more Quinn is needed, especially when it comes to luring a very dangerous villain into a trap. Will Quinn's unique skills be indispensable, or will she barely escape her hardest mission yet?
This series just gets more and more intriguing and captivating in the way the stories provide plenty of action; the perfect combination of suspense and romance; and a fast-paced storyline that had me wondering whether Quinn and her spy husband would come out on top against the bad guys, considering what they go through towards the end of this book that had me on the edge-of-my-seat due to the danger they face.
The way this story started had me really excited to read this story, as what Quinn and James are doing sets the fast-pace of the book. However, it was the characters that made this story very intriguing and exciting, as Quinn finally gets to use her skills as an operative to take the lead of the case, as being a woman has its advantages, especially when it comes to manipulating powerful men. Certainly, Quinn is strong, brave and I liked how she handled herself with every dangerous situation she found herself in. I also liked the tight bond she shares with her family, as they give her advice and encourage her to do her best, especially since marriage isn't always easy.
Overall, Ms. Mann has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between the hero and heroine was strong; the dialogue a wonderful combination of intense moments due to the suspense and teasing banter between Quinn and James that had me smiling; and the ending had me concerned for the main characters due to the danger they face, but had me liking how things work out for them in the end. Then again, the last line of this story has me thinking there's more to come for Ms. Mann's Librarian and the Spy Escapade series, which I'm looking forward to. I would recommend An Uncommon Honeymoon by Susan Mann, if you enjoy romantic suspense or books by authors HelenKay Dimon, Katie Ruggle, Kate Serine and Dawn Ryder.
