#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.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
