The Kill Shot A Jamie Sinclair Novel by Nichole Christoff

Jamie's father tells her he needs her help.  He's never needed her in his life.  She's pleased he's asked but she knows he's not telling her everything.  He wants her to accompany a US State Department courier and help her bring back a defecting scientist and one other family member.  Sounds easy enough, but it's anything but.

Alibi and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

Jamie has her work cut out for her.  The scientist is exceptionally smart and while the country she's leaving would kill her, there is more than one country that would like to acquire her skills.  When Jamie's boyfriend protects her and her party on the streets by killing an assailant, she wonders why he is there.  She doesn't know what his job is, but she knows he works for her father.  Did her father send him or is he there because he's her boyfriend?

She has another old friend around that is trying to help but confuses her.  They've been friends for years.  Now he wants to move it to another level.  She's not sure why Phillip is doing this and she loves Adam, doesn't she?

I picked up on the traitor at the beginning of the book.  Jamie doesn't realize it until the end.  I'm not sure why it wasn't as obvious to her as it was to me.  

She spends the entire book running and trying to keep the defectors safe.  She has people tracking her, betrayers all around, and her father won't even talk to her.  She's on own.  It's a good thing Adam is still there.

This was a busy book with more espionage than romance.  Jamie makes some important life decisions in this story.  She's very lucky she only ended up with a broken arm; it could have been much worse.  She still has to deal with a betrayal that has devastated her.  I wonder what her next adventure will be.
