I've seen this author on social media, but I'd never read her books. Oh.my.goodness. From Russia With Love was part of a romance collection that I picked up on a whim, and I'm so glad I did.
Ekaterina (Kat) Hope Moore travels to
with a key and a picture on a quest to find her family. From the moment she
goes through customs until the end of the story, we're taken on one wild ride.
Vadeem Spasanov, a tough FSB Officer (think KGB), believes Kat is in league with an international smuggler and trails her. He can't figure out what it is about the feisty, escape-artist American that gets under his skin.
When I have to stop reading and I'm frustrated, I always know it's a keeper. Wow, I love romance with a strong element of suspense. I'll be looking for more of Susan May Warren's books. 5 Stars for this one.
