Covert Christmas Twin
Published October 1st 2019 by Mills & Boon Love Inspired
To save her sister, she’ll need to become her.
After discovering she’s a twin, FBI special agent Kendra Parker tracks down her birth mother — and faces a barrage of bullets. Now armed with the knowledge that her mother’s a spy, Kendra must go undercover as her sister to protect her family. But can she and FBI analyst Joe Rose expose a government mole…before they all end up dead?
This is the second book in the Twins Separated at Birth series in the Love Inspired Suspense line at Harlequin books. Not sure if there will be more books in this series but I hope so. Crossed fingers.
I am reading this as part of my “Read More Paperbacks” Challenge to myself. I have such a collection of real books as opposed to digital books that I know I need to read as many as possible and send them off to new homes.
This story leaves off not long after the previous book where Audrey and Lee (Kendra’s partner) met and fell in love. Now Kendra, who is Audrey’s twin, is looking into the identity of her Mother and is following up on a lead. This causes her to take Audrey’s place. She is met by an old friend from her academy days, Joe Rosa. Joe is on a journey of his own. He wants to get out of the daily grind of the FBI and move into a pastoral position of some kind. He is unsure and searching for answers.
I liked this dynamic. Both are searching for something and both need each other in order to accomplish these goals. The unseen enemy in this book always seemed to be one step ahead of them and thwarting them at every turn. I didn’t completely understand Beverley’s motives for setting up this meeting between Joe and Kendra. It was originally because Beverley wanted more intel on this person named the Pirate who was after Audrey’s defense contracted creations. But I feel in the end the motive was to just get her and Joe to find each other again and bring a bit of happiness back to Kendra’s life.
Lots of action and suspense in this one. I really enjoy Woodhaven’s writing and will look to future books by her in this line of inspirational books. If you are really sensitive to religious aspects of books, this one is not obnoxious at all. You will appreciate Joe’s point of view and not just see it as preaching to the reader. The thrilling aspects and never rest plotline pushes the story forward so quickly that you will find yourself sad when you get to the end and leave the characters behind. Loved this dynamic duo of books. Right up my alley.
If you love a good romantic suspense, you have to check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
