Ten years ago, intelligence officer Jordan Weiss’s life was turned upside town when her college boyfriend Jared drowned. But in a shocking discovery, Jordan realises that she has been lied to and betrayed by those closest to her. Reeling from the knowledge that Jared faked his own death, she sets out from London to find him.
Jordan races all over Europe trying to find out why her boyfriend has let her believe all these years that he’s dead, and we get a lot of emotional turmoil from her as she insists that Jared is the only man she’s ever truly loved. However, as soon as she hooks up with the mysterious and attractive Aaron, it’s fairly obvious she’s going to end up with him instead – especially after the revelation that Nicole, the woman Aaron is after, is in fact Jared’s wife.
This is the sequel to an earlier book, Almost Home. Although there’s quite a lot of back story to fill the reader in on what happened in the earlier book, I think it’s probably best to read Almost Home before coming to this one. Jordan is presented in the marketing blurb as a female James Bond, a real action heroine. Possibly she was in the first book, but that’s not the way she comes across in this book – she’s unemployed, having resigned as an Intelligence Officer, and she spends most of the book mooning over first Jared and then Aaron – I had trouble buying the fact she’s supposed to be an intelligent, go-getting action woman.
