By Detra Fitch VINE VOICE on 21 July 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mackenzie "Mac" Hunter is the editor for a newspaper in Lake Avalon, Florida. When his depression begins to make him drink too often, the Trudeau sisters, Charlie and Alex, convince him to spend a week in their remote family cabin. Mac walks in to discover a young woman unconscious on the floor with a gunshot wound through her shoulder. Since a storm has washed out the roads, it is up to Mac to care for the mysterious lady.

N3 stands for National Neural Network. It is a secret division of the FBI. Each agent has some form of psychic ability. N3 has been Samantha "Sam" Trudeau's family for almost fifteen years. With skin-on-skin contact, Sam is able to mine the memories and experiences of her target. When Zoe, a fellow N3 operative, approaches her with a wild story about their boss, Flinn Ford, impregnating her to create some kind of super psychic spy, Sam's world tilts. Before Zoe's words can fully sink in, she is killed. Sam manages to eliminate the assassin, but is now on the run with a bullet hole through her shoulder.

Sam wakes in a cabin to find Mac, a civilian, tending her wound. Before Sam can safely get rid of the man, Flinn is there. Sam and Mac are now fleeing for their lives, trying to stay one step ahead of Flinn and other agents. Their biggest problem is that a drug has been released into Sam's system that has temporarily wiped her memories. As they scramble to make sense out of what is going on, Sam and Mac begin to act upon the passion that has been sizzling between them. Yet in the end, Sam knows that she will eventually have to find a way to leave Mac safely behind, because staying with her would get him killed for sure.

**** FOUR STARS! The author saved the best sister's story for last.

**** FOUR STARS! The author saved the best sister's story for last. Yet toward the end, Charlie, Alex, and their men enter for a cameo or two. There is one child that I would dearly have loved to see grow up. (I refuse to give away his name. No spoilers.) Perhaps someday he will have his own story told. I would not mind meeting Sloan again either.

This story stands alone. You do not have to read other books of the series to fully enjoy this one; however, those stories are just as terrific as Sam's. Action, suspense, romance, and paranormal conspiracy blend smoothly together to give readers a heart pounding ride. Awesome! ****

strong finish to the tense Trudeau trilogy 6 Dec. 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Special FBI operative Samantha Trudeau does not need her psychic abilities to warn her she is in deep trouble with law enforcement when her BFF Zoe is killed but before dying informs her who they truly were working for. Knowing the cell she worked for and other law enforcement seeks her, she is shot at to silence her; Sam takes a bullet in the shoulder, but finds an unoccupied cabin to hide.

The cabin belongs to mundane civilian hunk Mac Hunter, a reporter. Although she detests bringing him into her tsuris she needs help although he rejects her insistence she can read minds and that men want her dead until the arrival of a team with weapons. They escape but have no place safe to hide. He suggests she stay with her sisters in Lake Avalon, Florida (see True Colors for Alex's story and True Vision for Charlie's thriller). However, Sam knows they and their mates cannot protect her from her former boss.

This is a strong finish to the tense Trudeau trilogy. Filled with action and danger, the fun is in the relationship as Sam is superwoman while Mac is super stubborn; their relationship. Readers will enjoy the solo super Sam and the family man Mac as they fall in love while eluding a super insane villain.

True Shot, Trudeau Sisters #3, by Joyce Lamb
Grade: B

"If it hadn't been for the pallor of her face and the stark whiteness of the bandage at her shoulder, his brain would have gone right to sex, do not pass go, do not collect two hundred dollars, do not stop until the world ends in bright, explosive colors."

Mac Hunter needed a vacation according to Charlie and Alex Trudeau, sisters and two of his closest friends which is how he finds himself in their family cabin just outside of D.C.. A a journalist at their father's newspaper in Lake Avalon, Florida and the sole guardian of his little sister, Mac is in need of some relaxation and a break from drinking. He never expected to find Samantha Trudeau, the long lost sister who ran away fourteen years ago, shot and running from spies in the bathroom of the cabin.

Samantha Trudeau left home fourteen years ago and made the biggest mistake of her life. Every day she goes to work for the FBI as a spy to try and make up for that mistake. When she stumbles across a horrible government secret she goes rouge and the only person who can help is the sexy journalist mac Hunter. Together they must uncover the truth about Samantha and who is out to get her before they take down the family she has spent years protecting.

Let me start by saying that I am not a huge fan of suspense romance especially when a main character has amnesia but this book is a major exception. I found myself lost in the story and I couldn't put it down until I had finished the entire book in one sitting. I loved the way the characters and the story were written and Mrs. Lamb has made a fan out of me.

This is the third book in this series about three sisters with psychic abilities and I loved that I could jump right into this series and not feel lost at all. Samantha and her sisters all have some major family issues but Sam is the only one who ran away from home and stayed away the entire time. As we learn more about the events around Sam during her teenage years my heart just broke for her. She never got annoying or whiny about the cards she was dealt in life, instead she did what she had to do and what she thought would keep her family safe.

I liked Mac a lot but I had an issue with his previous relationship with Sam's sister Charlie. Maybe if I had read the previous books I would feel different but for some reason it rubbed me the wrong way and made me feel like he just wanted a Trudeau sister and didn't care which one. I also had a hard time believing he would let himself get caught up in running from government spies when he had his sister to take care of. Mac was the one part of this book that bothered me and is why I liked it instead of loved it.

I really enjoyed this book and plan on going back and reading the rest of the series. I hope that there are more books involving these sisters and that the series continues.
Consider my rating a 3.5 28 May 2014
By H. Grove (errantdreams) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Joyce Lamb’s True Shot follows her True Vision and True Colors. Those books follow Sam’s sisters, Charlie and Alex, who are in the process of discovering some psychic abilities of their own. True Shot is a romance and suspense/thriller with some dark themes.

Certain elements of the plot (what Sam’s boss is trying to do to her) and her boss himself are a bit on the florid and overly eevil side. It’s clever, but feels over the top. I’m sorry I’m being vague, but since Lamb strings that revelation out a bit I feel I shouldn’t give it away in the review.

Sam and Mac make a nice pairing. In particular I love the way Mac gets a little too snarky when he gets scared, thus getting himself in trouble. And I love that it isn’t shown as him having unlikely composure in the face of adversity–it’s something he does to cope with being afraid. He felt like more of a point-of-view character than Sam, which is unusual; it was easier to relate to him than to Sam the super-spy.

There’s some nice action and definite suspense (particularly early on as Sam and Mac try to elude their pursuers). There’s danger and some sexually dark material. The relationship is fun, and there’s some very nice sex. Overall it’s an enjoyable book with good characters.

Definitely recommend 21 Jan. 2012
By AsDaysTurn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you like kick-ass heroines, this book is for you. Sam Trudeau is an empath working for a branch of the FBI called the National Neural Network or N3. The book begins with her on the run after witnessing her fellow agent/friend's death, a kill ordered by Sam's creepy boss. Sam goes to hide out in her estranged family's vacation home, where she meets Mac. The fun begins there.

The story is action-packed. It pulled me in from the start. Quiet reporter Mac is a nice complement to alpha-heroine Sam. They make a good couple. I thought some of the violence near the end was a bit gratuitous, but I'm sensitive.

True Shot is the last book in Ms. Lamb's True trilogy. I haven't read True Colors or True Vision, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment one bit. I definitely recommend it.
