Yes, the agents of B.L.I.S.S. strike again in this, the next novel in the series about women equivalents to James Bond Ė note the title, please. However, this time, itís not an overtly qualified and skilled agent, licensed to kill, but a tecchie, a development genius, licensed to alter feminine protection into tracking devices, and vibrators into hand held missile launchers. One hopes the labeling is adequate.
Jane Spyrus is a shy, introverted gadget queen who becomes involved in an unlikely caper to rescue her neighbor from some delightfully evil bad guys. Her neighborís brother, the gorgeous Abel Andretti, ends up along for the ride, as does Janeís grandma, ex-spy Maggie Spyrus and a couple of assorted pets.
Janeís gadgets come in handy as their chase leads them to an elegant gated community and the assorted couples who live there. Prime amongst which are Lydia and Dirk Ensecksi (yeah, cute names), who may well be a little more than overly friendly neighbors.
Naturally, Jane and Abel are hot together. Naturally, they are falling in love. And naturally, they hit all kinds of problems, bad guys, evil villains and dastardly plots. Itís actually delightfully silly, highly fictional, and pretty much just like a James Bond book. Itís also wonderfully entertaining, very funny, and peopled with charmingly whimsical characters. I enjoyed this read very much, and the whole B.L.I.S.S. series has, so far, offered very different romances by excellent writers based around a similar theme. I canít wait to see whose martini gets shaken not stirred next...
