This is the second book in this series, the first one being "The Desperate Game." — Guinevere is worried. She's been temping for a land developer involved in a huge deal, and she can tell the man is stressed out. It s... more »eems to her he's actually excessively stressed out, even for such a big deal. There's something going on, she's sure, and when she finds a gold-plated gun in his private restroom, she begins to worry he might be dangerously depressed.
So when Vandyke, her temporary boss, announces they're to spend the winter weekend at a resort on the San Juan islands (just off Seattle), to finalize the deal, Gwen manages to convince him that it might be a good idea to bring Zac with them to help him guard the briefcase with the bids.
But convincing Vandyke is easy compared to convincing Zac to go. This is very definitely not the type of business he was thinking of when he opened his security consulting company. But when he calms down he realizes that, hey, free weekend at a resort with his er, girlfriend, the same girlfriend who's been a bit hard to pin down lately. Plus, that way she won't be going there alone with all those men (Zac does have his old-fashioned moments), so he kindly decides to accept the job.
But what seems like a made-up job ends up being something very different, when it turns out Vandyke really has reason to be a bit nervous.« less
Guinevere Jones is temping for Vandyke Industries, a land development corporation. She is worried because the boss, Mr. Vandyke, is acting very strangely and seems depressed. When Mr. Vandyke suggests she accompany him to a San Juan Islands resort to meet with others about a land deal, she offers the services of Zac Justis' company, Free Enterprise Services, as security for Mr. Vandyke and his top secret plans.
Zac is not to keen on the idea of playing bodyguard to a brief case, but warms to the idea when he realizes that he and Gwen could have some vacation time to themselves. But this weekend turns into business before pleasure when they both realize that Mr. Vandyke is keeping a secret that could get him killed.
Good mystery. I really like this series. My rating: 4 Stars.
