Agent in Old Lace by Tristi Pinkston

by Rebecca Talley

Agent in Old Lace
Tristi Pinkston

Shannon Tanner seems to have everything, until she realizes that what she's believed about her boyfriend, Mark, is a total lie. He's a creep and he's been embezzling a lot of money from many of his clients. He even believes he can convince Shannon to come with him and revel in the stolen funds. Thankfully, Shannon has morals and won't even consider it. Mark kidnaps her, but she escapes.

Then it's a cat and mouse game while FBI agent Rick protects Shannon from Mark and his obsession with revenge against Shannon.

Agent in Old Lace is a fast and fun read with plenty of humor. I especially enjoyed the budding romance between Shannon and Rick. I thought it was realistic and believable.

I thought Tristi did a great job of making Mark, the villain, slimy. I was glad when he got what was coming to him.

Other than a few pet words/phrases, I thought the writing was solid and the story flowed well. I also enjoyed the storyline about her dad and how it was resolved at the end (I was convinced I knew what was happening, but Tristi threw in a twist--she's good at that).

I recommend you add it to your reading list and tell your friends. It's a fun book!

That doesn't sound like the kind of book that I would normally read, but it does sound interesting so I'm thinking that maybe I should branch out more and try some books that I don't normally read. Thanks for the review.

Thanks for the review Rebecca! I STILL haven't gotten my own copy, so I guess I'd better go do that!
