Agent in Old Lace - Tristi Pinkston

Summary: Shannon Tanner has it all, a perfect family, perfect job, perfect boyfriend—or so she thinks. What Shannon doesn’t know is that her boyfriend, Mark, is stealing money from her father and making millions doing it. When Shannon learns Mark’s secret, he turns on her, and Shannon’s life abruptly goes from perfect to perilous.

In an effort to protect Shannon, the FBI assigns their only female agent to go undercover as her personal bodyguard. But when the agent gets injured the day before the assignment, they turn to the next best thing: their top agent, Rick Holden—in a dress.

Life seems safe again for Shannon with Rick by her side and Mark apparently gone for good. Then Shannon gets word that her best friend has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that Mark isn’t going to stop any time soon. Shannon realizes the only way to save herself and her friend—and stop Mark once and for all—is by sending Rick, her only source of protection, away. Can Rick save Shannon before it’s too late?

My review: I am not a writer by any stretch of the imagination (which you can probably tell when you read any of my reviews) but I am a reader, and I know when a book I’ve read is a good read or not. This book, Agent in Old Lace, was a good read. It was a short book, only 182 pages, but those 182 pages were filled with action, suspense, mystery, romance (every book needs just a little romance) and even a fair amount of humor. Some authors try to make their books longer by adding what I would term as “filler”. Agent in Old Lace did not have any filler in it whatsoever. Every word in the book was important—it said what needed to be said to keep you wanting more. This book will definitely be in my “books to be read again” category. Thank you Tristi for a fun and entertaining read.

My rating: 4.5 stars

Sum it up: A great book to read when you need a break from everyday life (and everything that comes with it).
