"Walter Mitty inside a James (make that Jane) Bond-like thriller"
In Los Angeles, thirty-seven years old attorney
Phineus "Finn" Teague detests his current work that leaves
him bored even at its most exciting moments. Instead he
hides inside his apartment dreaming of being a super agent
saving the world and getting the girl in an eight hour
job. However, his daydreams dramatically change as he
lusts over his neighbor Diana Traynor.
Amber Robinson works undercover for a top secret
government agency. She and her partner Brandon are
tracking Drake, terrorist mercenary by tailing his
girlfriend, Diana. Amber has even moved into the same
complex. When Finn seems to be everywhere especially when
it comes to Diana, Amber wonders if he is a bad spy though
his background check states civilian lawyer. She decides
to seduce the truth out what appears to be a wild card
operative not realizing that he will take her to some
place she never has been before: love.
THE SPY WHO LOVED ME takes Walter Mitty and places him
inside a James (make that Jane) Bond-like thriller
complete with beautiful babes, wacky wizardry, a vile
villain, and a stupendous spy story. Amber is a wonderful
protagonist while Finn is a bungler who quickly learns
reality is a lot different than dreaming or game playing.
Yet he will risk his life if it means Amber is safe.
Tongue in cheek, readers will appreciate Julie Kenner's
espionage romantic suspense tale.
