My Review

A nice follow up to The Librarian and the Spy and it was fun to be back with Quinn and James. Punjab’s history might have been sad but I really enjoyed reading about it. I love when author’s take real life historical events and use them in their plots.

“What’s a librarian doing with a gun?”
“I make sure people pay their overdue fines.”

Once again this book is only from Quinn’s POV. Not terrible, but I hoped we would learn more about James and his history. Quinn was as fun as the first time around and I found myself laughing at some of her comments and her constant confidence in herself. This woman is rocking it for librarians all over. James got a bit overprotective but he also never doubted Quinn’s strengths and her ability to take care of herself. Just a small thing: I did enjoy the romance, but there was pretty much no tension between James and Quinn. On one hand that’s not a bad thing, but on the other, it also made it feel more like a regular adventure/spy novel instead of a romance.

3 stars – it was good
