Book review: The Spy who saved Christmas, by author Dana Marton

I got lucky and got to read my first Dana Marton book last week. I actually received two but I'm only going to talk about The Spy that Saved Christmas. This has a Christmas title and takes place right before Christmas but is also a romantic suspense. I wasn't sure what to expect because it was a Christmas theme i expected alot of fluff. I got alot more than i counted on. Below is the blurb from the back of the book.

In one unforgettable moment, Lara Jordan broke all the rules in her play-it-safe handbook and spent an incredible night with Reid Graham, a practical stranger. But before she even had time to bask in her fearlessness, a suspicious fire stole him away and left her pregnant, heartbroken and alone. Until now.

Walking back into Lara's life after two years was never on the operative's agenda. Unfortunately, remaining "dead" was no longer an option once their baby boys were kidnapped. Now, Reid had to convince Lara she could trust he'd sacrifice his own life to bring their children home for Christmas— without admitting the mission might just come to that.

The shorted up version.  Lara and Reid get together for one night of hot passionate sex. There is this awful fire where it appears that Reid dies in. Lara find out she's pregnant with twins and 14 months later Lara sees Reid in a restaurant and goes to confront her unbelieving eyes. This is where the action really picks up. Reid is part of a government agency and was undercover before when he met Lara and he is again. Lara gets in the middle of his assignment and her twin boys end up kidnapped. Reid realizes he still has feeling for Lara and is floored when he finds out her twin babies are actually his sons. He vows to get them back and make her safe before he's forced to leave her again. This is a great little read. The suspense is there throughout and the pace is good. You don't have time to get bored with it. This was one of those books i sat down and read in one sitting. Look forward to more Dana Marton books in the future.

I give The Spy who Saved Christmas 5 Modokker Book Pick Stars. I couldn't find anything i didn't like about it.You can check out Dana Marton and her book list by visiting her website by clicking here. You may also read a excerpt and first chapter there as well.
