ABOUT THE BOOK
She just wanted to shake up her love life. Jacklyn (Jack) Wyatt is the typical twenty-five-year-old living the typical Provo single life with the typical bad luck— at least until the FBI recruits her for a completely different type of dating.
A young woman has gone missing, and all signs point to her online dating profile as the kidnapper’s operating ground. But when suspects who crossed paths with the missing girl begin contacting Jack, the FBI sees its opportunity for an inside man—er, woman.
Now Jack will have to play the field, dating each of the men in an attempt to weed out the kidnapper. But with such an unusual array of characters vying for her attention, pinpointing the culprit may prove even harder than finding Mr. Right. And as more young women disappear, will Jack stay professional and objective, even with the handsome Special Agent Damon Wade just a whisper in her hidden microphone away?
There are a lot of romantic suspense books written every year. And unfortunately, all too many of them feel the same. This one feels different in a couple of ways. First, I loved the heroine, Jack (short for Jacklyn). She feels so much like a regular girl, the kind I would love to be friends with. She's attending college, working at the mall, and trying to put up with everyone's pushing her to get married. I loved her commentary on life, especially dating. Jack says what she feels, no beating around the bush for her. Jack's attitudes make this book quite amusing to read, despite the fact that she's working with the FBI to try to locate a missing girl. The dates she goes on are pretty bad for the most part, which anyone who has dated can relate too. The sparks that fly between Jack and her FBI handler, Damon Wade, make for some entertaining reading. At the same time, Jack is a faithful, believing member of the LDS church and Damon is an estranged member which causes some more serious issues between them as their attraction develops into something more. I also enjoyed the mystery itself, trying to figure out who is actually behind the kidnapping of the girl. And while Jack is a rather amusing spy, she's also very determined to help this unknown girl in trouble. Great read.
