The Spy Who Comes in from the cold
I wasn’t expecting to like this book very much. The shocking pink cover screamed “chick lit.” At first I thought Ms. McMullen was trying too hard to be funny/cute. The premise of the book – a former undercover agent who has been a stay at home wife/mother for nine years is pulled back into the world of espionage did quickly lure me in.
Once I got into the book I really did enjoy it! Ms. McMullen is an excellent writer. She makes the transitions from "Sally’s" current life to her past seamlessly. There is no problem for the reader to follow the story. It is a fast read, perfect for vacation, plane or beach reading. Not particularly suited for a book club, but lots of fun.
Would I read any sequels? Possibly titled "Venial Sin", "Mortal Sin" or "Deadly Sin"? Probably. However, I would love for her to write something a little more weighty to showcase her talent. I am really looking forward to reading more books by this writer.
