Great book for summer reading. Bridget Jones crossed with James Bond. I giggled out loud in places, but was caught up enough in the storyline to read it was past my bedtime.

HATED IT!!! Helen Fielding used our 9/11 pain to make money - IF she were an American, it would have been different, but I resent her using our attack as a light plot. Shame on her.

This romance/thriller/spy novel is a fast, breezy read. Despite some of the most unlikely plot twists, the action moves forward in an enjoyable manner and the reader comes to really care for Olivia. Recommended as a quick, fun novel.

The book was written around the time that the United States was looking for Osama Bin Laden, so this is a thread that ties the book together. The character is not as well developed as I would have hoped. It was difficult to see how she gained the skills necessary to complete the missions assigned to her. You definitely need to suspend belief while reading this book.

After reading both Briget Jones books, I expected this to be funnier. It took me a few chapters to get into the story line but I liked it nonetheless.
