SHE HAS A LICENSE TO KILL. AND CARPOOL.
Seeing Lucy Hamilton, you would think she is just like any other suburban stay-at-home San Francisco mom. She takes her three-year-old son Theo to the beach, playground, and the zoo. She makes organic applesauce, folds laundry, and plays on the floor with Matchbox cars until her knees ache. What no one knows about Lucy, not even her adoring husband Will, is that for nine years she was known as Sally Sin, a spy for the USAWMD (United States Agency for Weapons of Mass Destruction). And that’s just the way Lucy wants to keep it – a secret.
Ian Blackford, a notorious illegal arms dealer and Lucy’s long-forgotten nemesis, returns to the USAWMD’s radar, and they are forced to call Lucy back to action to lure Blackford out into the open. As she races to unravel the mystery that surrounds Blackford’s return (and get dinner on the table), she realizes that the answers she needs lie in a past that she’s tried very hard to forget. In a race against time, Lucy must fight to save herself, her family – and, oh yes – the world.
This book sucked me in from the beginning. Beth McMullen has created characters so lifelike that they were truly amazing.
Lucy is the typical stay-at-home mom, or so everyone thinks. She is actually a retired spy.
I loved the interplay between Ian and Lucy. It would be interesting to find out that they had more then just a passing relationship in the past. I hope Beth McMullen decides to do something with those two. I know that Lucy is married to Will, but I felt there was more sizzle between Ian and Lucy.
This was a quick easy read. I certainly hope that there are plans for more in the future. This would make for a delightful series.
