"Entertaining romantic suspense"
Though not an official CIA agent, Neala Delaney has been in
more dangerous operations than James Bond due to her uncle
always asking for one more favor under the guise of
national security. Reluctantly Neal constantly falls for
his blarney and agrees, but the scenario never goes
according to her uncle's plan.
This time she is only to obtain a package from a US
Senator's wife. However, whenever her uncle uses her, even
as a simple messenger, something unexpected goes wrong.
This time she and her target hide in a closet while
witnessing the murder of the Senator. After the killers
leave, Neal enables the spouse to quietly vanish from the
crime scene before calling the Feds.
Neal is hidden on the Montana ranch of Will Ryder, who
reluctantly agrees to help a friend by protecting the
witness. Will knows Neal is trouble in several ways, but
mostly for his heart. Still her uncle's latest ploy is not
finished and if history holds, the calamity has just begun
for Neal and Will.
The third Uncle Sean vs. the Shandian Corporation tale
closes the entertaining romantic suspense with a strong
finale. SUN VALLEY ties up loose ends including that loose
cannon Sean even though he hints at one more niece to lead
a new novel. The lead couple is a delight as the heroic
Will wants to protect Neal, but wonders who will protect
him from her. Sub-genre fans will take pleasure from Gena
Hale's concluding stand-alone story, but to understand the
bigger picture will want to read the two exciting previous
books, PARADISE ISLAND and DREAM MOUNTAIN.
