On My Nightstand - From Russia With Love by Susan May Warren

I've seen this author on social media, but I'd never read her books. 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 Russia 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.

I definitely like suspense and characters that do things I have no idea about, like spies! That is so far from my world that a novel that sweeps me into a brand new world, is intriguing and fascinating! Sounds like that is exactly what this book did for you!
