"Move over Stephanie Plum, Sophie Green has arrived!"

Move over Stephanie Plum, Sophie Green has arrived.

Sophie is back in action. And an Ugley action it is! What more can a girl ask for? A job with an airline giving her free travel privileges. A hunk for a boyfriend (hmmm....??) who everyone wants. A cute little gun in her purse. And, by the way, she's a spy!

Things heat up when her friend Angel shows up and catches Sophie and Luke in bed together. Wow, was that a shock. Angel is surprised to find out she knew nothing about the boyfriend.

Shock again when Sophie finds out that Angel is her next assignment. Someone is stalking her, so Sophie and Luke have been assigned to watch her. Angel is the daughter of famous parents, her father having been murdered years ago. Her mother was a sex goddess of whom Sophie is a mirror image.

Ms. Johnson brings back some old friends from the first book: Harvey, Ted (the wonderful vehicle), Tammy (her cat), her parents and Maria. She introduces us to a couple of new characters: Karen aka One and Docherty. Docherty has brooding eyes, a sullen face but has the sweetest of all crotch rocket type cars which Sophia immediately takes over. Oh darn, the car gets blown up. Hmmm, think that one rivals Stephanie Plum's. Sophie is constantly running amuck, capturing her crook while giving the reader a laugh out loud time. One crook even said "she's crazy!"

Ugley Business is a great story full of action, smart remarks, lots of British humor and characters that I wish I could meet. As I previously said, Move over Stephanie Plum. Sophie is here!

Sophie Green the worst spy the British secret service has ever seen, is back and she’s in love—with a car.

Her best friend is being stalked, and to find out why, Sophie has to solve a murder committed fifteen years ago. Complicating the case is Docherty, whose brooding eyes and Irish accent get Sophie almost as hot as his Aston Martin—and her partner Luke, who may be sexy as hell but has all the interpersonal skills of a speeding bullet. Not that Sophie’s going to allow the state of her love life to distract her from her mission. Much.

Murder plots, stolen supercars, coolheaded mercenaries and mysterious artifacts? Must be a Tuesday.
