Loved this story!! I've always been partial to stories that involve undercover work for the government. It's even better when it is the heroine of the story that is doing it!!
I really liked James and Catharine together. The attraction between the two of them was red hot from the very beginning! As they say, opposites do attract!
I've loved this whole series and I hope that Holiday is continuing it!!
