Special Agent Francesca Donovan was thrilled to be moving to the Las Vegas FBI branch to escape her powerful, domineering mother. Kathleen Donovan held the position of Special Assistant to the Director of the FBI in New York City. She had always made sure Frankie was assigned soft cases. So when a position in the bureau opened in Las Vegas, she jumped at the opportunity to move more than halfway across the country. Frankie chose a hotel away from the glitz and bright lights of Vegas to familiarize herself with the underbelly of the city. On her first night in town, before Frankie checks in with the bureau, she gets between the hotel owner and a couple of goons who are out collecting protection payments in the seedy area for their boss.

Craving the chance for real undercover work, Frankie grabs at the opportunity to be involved in cleaning up gang corruption in the nasty neighborhood. In the sting operation, to lure out a Vegas kingpin, she is to pose as the new hotel owner along with Sean Collins, a Psychiatrist and LVPD Profiler, as her loving fiancée. But first Frankie needs to approach a father she’s never met, a man who doesn’t even know she exists.

Frankie is a wonderful character. While she doesn’t have an outgoing personality, she is feisty, smart, and confident in her abilities. She is also multi-talented and doesn’t shy away from danger. There is an undeniable chemistry between Frankie and Sean. I enjoyed the way Ms. Barbour played with each character’s perceptions of the other while they explored and came to terms with their own feelings. Neither can deny their attraction to the other and as the danger intensifies, the stakes get higher.

The characters are all well developed and diverse.

HASH(0x93c3572c) out of 5 stars Riveting 8 April 2014
By Katy Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I found this captivating, it has a richness, with three dimensional characters and a riveting plot. The opening chapter is fierce, grabbing the reader by the throat and not letting go. The following couple of chapters are both violent and then poignant, arousing a different set of emotions, with a domineering highly intelligent mother Kathleen Donovan and an introverted daughter, Francesca, an undercover FBI agent who hides her introversion under a brittle mask. The author cleverly combines the harsh elements with sensitive emotive qualities to develop a complex personality that fascinates and ensnares Sean Collins, a psychiatrist and LVPD profiler. The author has the reader on the edge of her/his seat as the plot develops. Francesca can kick ass as hard as any man, she’s a force to contend with in a fight against the odds.
In the first couple of chapters she finds her long lost Dad, John and siblings, so I am not giving away any spoilers, Then just as she bonds with a step-mother whose as warm as buttered toast, the plot explodes and Francesca brings out the big guns on one roller coaster of a ride.
Vibrant complex characters, a twisting plot, chilling and inescapable, a real page turner.
Highly recommended

HASH(0x93c35678) out of 5 stars I want to give this ten stars 6 April 2014
By Shirleen - Published on Amazon.com

Love Mimi Barbour, love her books. When you can read a book that within just a few words, you are brought right into the book. You feel, taste, see everything going on. Great story lines. Fantastic characters, fantastic plots, story lines like real life both honest folk and of crooks. Humor that will have you giggling then full on belly laugh. You may even shed a tear or two at love. You will also have visit from other Las Vegas cops from the Vegas series. All in all Mimi never disappoints, I loved the book and highly recommend.

HASH(0x948c8330) out of 5 stars Master of Character Development 12 April 2014
By Proud Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a writer myself, I think that one of the true marks of an excellent author is solid, believable character development, and in my opinion, Mimi Barbour is the master of character development. Special Agent Francesca is a complex woman who can use her martial arts skills to take down the toughest of thugs, and then spin her feminine wiles effortlessly to lure a criminal profiler to her bed. After learning who her father was from the mother who chose career over child, Francesca makes a conscious decision to meet him face-to-face no matter the outcome. Fortunately for the special undercover agent, John Hampton welcomes the daughter he never knew existed with open arms. Barbour fleshes out not only Ham's character, but the rest of Francesca's extended family as well. Her step-mother, Mattie, is a warm, loving woman who makes Francesca feel like she'd been part of the family since forever. Little sister, Caireann wonders aloud as to what took her big sister so long to come home and tells the FBI agent that she's been sorely missed.

Story line development in this thriller is excellent as well. The twists and turns keep the excitement rolling until the end. As always from Ms. Barbour, a great read!

HASH(0x9b58a5b0) out of 5 stars Special Agent Francesca 12 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love this new book! It"s a book that stands quite nicely on its own; however, if you have read the "Vegas" series there's a great tie-in. I hope that this is only the first in a long series. The book definately makes me want more-and soon. Francesca is a little-bit on the Lone Ranger side when it comes to her job as an FBI agent. The feds don't like it, but I sure did. Write fast Mimi!

HASH(0x93c60a08) out of 5 stars Suspenseful plot plus character building 11 April 2014
By Nancy Radke, romance, mystery, thriller, & western author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This lady had a lot of emotional baggage from her past, yet she overcame it and ended up with a new family. I liked the fact that Francesca hated to fight, yet she seemed to end up in lots of situations where she needed to use her black belt skills. From an overprotective mother, to a new found father, to a romance, Francesca somehow manages all, and manages well. A fun read from a super author.
