"this book has everything!"

"Never underestimate the blonde."

Meet Sophie Green, airline personnel working for Ace Airlines. Underpaid, under challenged, and late for work everyday. But at least she can say she works for an airline and people will think cute uniforms and bubbly people. But this day is different. Sophie gets hired as a spy! SO 17, Special Operations Seventeen has one green spy on their hands.

Enter Luca or Luke as he is commonly known. Luke is tall, British, has an accent to die for and is extremely good looking. What woman would say no?

Sophie is a spy like no other. She goes after the bad guy or guys with gusto. She can break into anything and doesn't like being told she can't have a gun. Compare her to Stephanie Plum with Bubbles thrown in for fun. She drives an old bile colored car which Luke can't believe is still on the road. Action, counterfeiters, gunfire, firebombs, fingers in the mail, a quick trip overseas, a plane crash and a trail of drinks keeps her on the mission of finding her suspect. With Luke bailing her out of trouble and ready for action of the non-detective type, this book has everything!

Kate Johnson has created a wonderful set of characters. Sophie Green is adorable. She's quirky, full of smart comebacks, mom to Tammy, and ready for a "to die for" career. Luke makes her heart take off to 200 mph in 60 seconds. He's the good looking, smart, sophisticated spy who is her partner and takes on the formidable task of training her. The other characters in the spy organization are also interesting, One, Two, Three; all names used for security.

Ms. Johnson sets her story in any airport, with any airline where all of us have been in line. I would love to have Ms. Green as my flight attendant. She would keep everyone laughing the whole trip.

This is one book which if were in print, I would have on my keeper shelf!

Never underestimate the blonde

“The British spy is elegant, suave and sophisticated. The British spy is not blonde, built, and confused.”

But Sophie Green is, and she’s just been hired by a highly secret government agency. She drives a car the colour of bile and is obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She doesn’t know which end of the gun to fire from and her hair hasn’t been natural since she was twelve. But that’s not going to stop her from trying to save the day, once she figures out who to save it from.

Sexy spies, plane crashes, firebombs and multicoloured cocktails—they’re all in a day’s work for Sophie. Roll over, Bond, there’s a new bombshell in town. And it’s got Sophie’s name on it…
