I'm hopeless. It's an affliction and I don't know what to do!!! As you know, I've been working my way through Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter series. I had gotten my tbr pile down to 1.
Well, I picked it up and now I can't put the damn thing down. I think this might be my favorite so far. The hero is the extremely wounded Jimmy Nash and I have a thing for wounded heroes. I like to read about them and I love to write about them.
And so, naturally, I've gotten entrenched into this book and have totally neglected my own writing. What's worse. I went to B&N today and got the next 4 in the series!!
See above comment about being hopeless.
Here's the cover and the blurb from her website:
Jimmy Nash has already lived two lives--and he can’t talk about either of them. Formerly an operative of a top secret government agency, he has found a new job with a shadowy company called Troubleshooters, Incorporated. Created by a former Navy SEAL, Troubleshooters, Inc. helps anyone in desperate need--which provides a perfect cover for its other, more perilous objective: covert special operations.
Now Nash and a quickly assembled team of expert operators have come to the earthquake-ravaged country of Kazbekistan in the guise of relief workers. There, amid the dust and death, in a land of blood red sunsets and ancient blood feuds, they must track down a missing laptop computer that may hold secrets vital to national security.
To get it done, Nash does what he does best: break every rule in the book and manipulate those who can help him get what he needs. But this time, Nash may have met his match in Tess Bailey, a Troubleshooters operative with all the right instincts--and zero field experience. The deep attraction between them is immediate... and potentially volatile, with risk at every turn.
Now these two professionals must play out their dangerous games in the world’s most dangerous place-- isolated from their own government, cutting deals with people they can’t trust, and guarding forbidden passions that threaten to compromise their crucial mission.
A full-throttle adventure teamed with heated emotion, Flashpoint proves that Suzanne Brockmann can spin suspense unlike any other author working today.
I really, really loved this book and am sure I'll go back and read it. Probably as soon as I've finished the series (if not before). It was great entertainment as a reader, but as a writer I'm fascinated by her ability to tell a story and get so deep into POV.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
Wishing you much peace and love,
