MY REVIEW

Wow, this amazing thriller is a must read.  This is the second book in the Capital Intrigue series. This romantic suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat from the opening of the cover through the turn of each page.  This unputdownable engrossing novel will have you so enthralled in the story that you don’t want to stop reading.

The three CIA agents are very relatable, realistic and likable.  When Layla is pushed into becoming a CIA operative and upon her return to DC her life is turned upside down.  When a team member is found dead, another member’s house is ransacked and a restaurant that she would frequently meet her co-worker friends at is bombed, Layla soon realizes that she is the target.  As an internal investigation is opened on Layla and as luck would have it the lead investigator is her ex-boyfriend Hunter.  Is there a mole in the CIA? With so many twists and turns, this romantic suspense novel is intertwined with romance, mystery and inspiration that makes this a bestseller.  I love how the characters reflect on their faith in their lives and how they rely on their faith to come out on the other side of life’s challenges.  The amazing plot twists are sure to keep you guessing.  

I can’t recommend this book enough, I am sure this author will be a new favorite.  The storyline will have you flying through the pages, holding your breath to see what happens next, not wanting the book to end but will leave you totally satisfied when you arrive at the last page. I devoured this book and it is a new favorite that I will remember for a long time. Thanks Rachel Dylan for this phenomenal read.

Rating: 5 out of 5.


ABOUT THE BOOK

CIA analyst Layla Karam is thrust into a dangerous DEA field operation against a cartel that puts a target on her back. Though Layla never wanted to be a field agent, Langley had other ideas. After one of her team members is murdered because of fallout from the op, Layla is left scrambling to find safety.

At the same time, the CIA opens up an internal investigation against her. Out of options, Layla turns to ex-boyfriend and private investigator Hunter McCoy for help finding out who might want to ruin her career.

Layla and Hunter soon discover a mole inside the DEA has sold out the team’s identity to the cartel. She must clear her name with the Agency and protect herself and her teammates from cartel retaliation. With threats on all sides, Layla must put her trust in Hunter–the man who broke her heart–and hope they both come out of it alive.
