4.7/5.0 Couldn’t put it down.
Lust (Lust, Money & Murder #1) by Mike Wells.
A short novel, but full of intrigue and packed with adventure, well written and I really didn’t want to put this book down. It’s the first in the series and I can’t wait to see what happens to Elaine in the future books. She’s a tough lady with a heart, enough vulnerability to be likable. There isn’t really a resolution to the book but as it says on the label it’s a series and I for one can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.
The Blurb –
Born in the worst suburb in Pittsburgh, Elaine Brogan is bright, beautiful and bold. When her father is falsely arrested for passing counterfeit $100 bills, Elaine vows to become a Secret Service agent and track down the man responsible. After barely surviving the arduous Secret Service Training Academy in Laurel, Maryland, she is transferred to bleak and blustery Great Falls, Montana. But things do not go as planned, and Elaine soon finds herself betrayed and thrown into an adventure that takes her halfway around the world, from dark and mysterious Sofia, Bulgaria, to Moscow Russia, and finally, to Milan, Italy. In the end, will Elaine find the love and happiness she truly seeks…or will she turn to a life of obscene wealth, power and corruption?
