#42: India Black and the City of Light - Carol K. Carr

When it comes to undercover work, nobody does it better than Madam of Espionage India Black...

India and the handsome British spy, French, are ordered to escort a Russian agent to Paris where he will be exchanged for one of Her Majesty’s operatives. The task seems straightforward and India looks forward to enjoying the delights of the city—and the delights of French.

But it isn’t long before things go awry and the duo are battling for their lives in the City of Light.

REVIEW:
I'm back-tracking a little bit in this series by reading this novella now, but after I finished the last book I realized this came before it. No big deal. The author was kind enough to help me out and provide me with a copy.
I love reading India's adventures.
In this novella I learned more about why the Russians play such an important part of the next book. It really helped placed pieces that I didn't even realize were missing until I read this. 
Not as exciting as a full length novel, but this is more of a set-up for the last book. I admit I like bigger doses of adventure and espionage, still it was a fast and fun read.
If you are an India Black fan, be sure to read this novella too. It is only available in eformat though.


4/5

  2. I know what you mean about a novella setting you up for the full length book. I love cozy mysteries and this sounds like it could be a fun read.

  3. It sounds like a good mystery and as a short book, it may be good for the beach.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger
