I have to confess, I read this book a few months ago and somehow in the crazy busyness of our summer, I forgot to actually publish my post about it. (*blushing*) I feel horrible, especially since I really enjoyed reading it. Hopefully those I verbally shared my review with ran out and got a copy... at least then I won't feel quite so guilty for my lack of organization.
Canada is probably the last place you'd expect to find an American spy. But in my romantic suspense novel I, Spy, even idyllic Ottawa has its deadly secrets--and so does CIA operative Talia Reynolds. She can climb through ventilation shafts, blend in at the occasional diplomatic function, even scale buildings (small ones). But there's one thing she can't do: tell her aerospace engineer boyfriend Danny about her Top Secret occupation.
It worked for a year, keeping Danny in the dark, keeping him away from danger, keeping her secrets. And then Talia finally catches a hot case: Fyodor Timofeyev. Russian. Aerospace executive. Possible spy?
She can make this work, too--until Danny needs her at the same time her country does. And when Fyodor targets Danny? Suddenly her schedule isn't the only thing suffering. Now to save her secrets and her country, Talia must sacrifice the man she loves.

What I loved most about this book:
For starters, its not every day I get to read a book dedicated to Ryan (my husbands name.) with a character named Talia (my daughter's name!) - Made me giggle... and, had me intrigued!
Talia Reynolds, much like my own Talia, is a powerhouse, no-nonsense kind of girl. Strong, yet sensitive. Determined, yet compassionate. She is quick and witty and I became quite fond of the thoughts that swirled around in her mind. In a world where so many of us look out only for ourselves, I loved her dedication to her partner - even when he had fumbles that jeopardized her life. This was a fun, adventurous, fast-paced book that had me turning pages. Not a dull moment. Definitely a must read. Can't wait for the rest in the series.
