Back Cover Blurb:

An undercover operation is the only way to bring an innocent witness home…

After months searching for a schoolteacher on the run from a criminal gang, CIA operative Josh Sedovich finally finds the innocent beauty in the remotest part of Malaysia. Eager to get Erin Argon home and into protective custody, Josh goes undercover to gain her trust and prove he isn't a threat. And although Erin claims to have witnessed the murder of a very dangerous man, Josh knows there's more to the story than she's letting on. But getting to know Erin—in public and behind closed doors—makes Josh realize just how determined she is to keep the truth hidden. Seems he isn't the only one keeping secrets that could get them both killed…

My Review:

Kennie takes a lot of time to develop the plot and the mystery of the story, ramping it all up at the end. The best parts of this story are in the details. The minutiae really brings everything home and makes the suspense even more fast pace. The setting was well put together, allowing me to picture where the characters were and what was happening there.

The main characters in this novel were quite interesting and really fit the novel well. I enjoyed them as individuals and as a budding couple. The differences between their undercover personas and who they truly are was interesting. Their emotions shine through, even if they are hidden beneath the surface. It really added to the suspense for me.

This was an intriguing romantic suspense. It was my first novel by this author but I will definitely be looking further into her work.
