My Review:

This is a brilliant suspense, action packed and SO funny – I loved it!

Samantha Harper (Sam) is desperate to follow in the family tradition and become a cop, but keeps failing the exam. She’s feisty, fun, determined and tenacious. She also has a back up team of her gran and other elderly ladies with a useful range of skills, knowledge and connections! They’re brilliant at finding things out, making their own weapons and providing an incredible neighbourhood watch for their area. When the handsome new neighbour moves into the house across from Sam’s, little does he realise just what he’s getting into! He’s an undercover DEA agent, Ash Cooper, and the first encounter between him and Sam is hilarious! You’ll just have to read it yourself to appreciate how the author has so skilfully written maintaining the suspense but also adding humour and romance into this thoroughly enjoyable story.

The team work of Sam and the elderly sleuths is great, their interactions and resilience make them a true force to be reckoned with! Poor Ash just doesn’t know what’s hit him when he tries to misdirect their attentions and strives to rescue Sam from the sticky situations she keeps finding herself in. The characters and events are superbly portrayed, being brought to life in the readers’ imagination by this talented author. With international terrorist drug dealers determined to bring down the US, Sam’s Dad being missing in action, Ash’s ex girlfriend making an unexpected reappearance and so many twists and turns, this is an exciting, enthralling read that I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys well crafted suspense along with laugh out loud funny interactions and a healthy dose of romance!

Thanks to the author, publishers and  NetGalley, too, for letting me read this in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis:

New neighbors are bad news in Samantha Harper’s experience. Especially ones as suspicious and brooding as the guy who just moved in next door. So when the dangerous but sexy stranger seems to be involved in something illegal—the aspiring cop in her takes action. If only she could stop thinking about how he looks naked…

All DEA agent Ash Cooper wants to do is lay low and survive this crap surveillance assignment. But after a run-in with his attractive neighbor, he realizes that’s going to be much harder than he planned. Keeping the woman out of trouble is hard enough, but keeping his hands off her is near impossible.
