Let Me In Author:Donna Kauffman In this clunky romantic thriller from RITA-finalist Kauffman (The Great Scot), Tate Winslow, a former operative for a covert U.S. government agency, goes into a witness protection program and becomes, somewhat improbably, Tara Wingate, a successful novelist living in Virginia's Hebron Valley. Then one night her former boss, rogue agent Derek Col... more »e, knocks on her door and announces that Tate's former agency partner, CJ, whom Tate saw shot before her eyes three years earlier, is alive and needs their help in being extracted from an undercover operation gone bad. Before Tate and Derek can rescue CJ, they have to wonder-could CJ be a double agent? And given their growing mutual attraction, can they keep their hands off each other long enough to effectively deal with the villains? Romance pro Kauffman has much to learn about creating suspense, as shown by the slow, dialogue-driven plot, which begs for more action and more believable agency backstory. (Mar.)« less
This book was good but it was not fabulous. It lacked the romance that I bought it for. The chaacters were just instantly in love and the story was over written. I skipped over some pages and could still pick up the story without having read them. It was okay, but not something to spend a lot of money on.
Not really my kinda of book but I like this author and didn't read the cover blurb. This is a CIA-like intrigue/intelligence book with heroine being a covert agent and hero being her boss. I really enjoyed the romance between the H/H but I could have done without the whole terrorist thing.
I can see how it would have been a great book if I only liked this type of thing.
