Special Agent Francesca by Mimi BarbourSpecial Agent Francesca Donovan was thrilled to be moving to the Las Vegas FBI branch to escape her powerful domineering mother Kathleen Donovan held the position of Special Assistant to the Director of the FBI in New York City She had always made sure Frankie was assigned soft cases So when a position in the bureau opened in Las Vegas she jumped at the opportunity to move than halfway across the country Frankie chose a hotel away from the glitz and bright lights of Vegas to familiarize herself with the underbelly of the city On her first night in town before Frankie checks in with the bureau she gets between the hotel owner and a couple of goons who are out collecting protection payments in the seedy area for their bossCraving the chance for real undercover work Frankie grabs at the opportunity to be involved in cleaning up gang corruption in the nasty neighborhood In the sting operation to lure out a Vegas kingpin she is to pose as the new hotel owner along with Sean Collins a Psychiatrist and LVPD Profiler as her loving fiancée But first Frankie needs to approach a father she’s never met a man who doesn’t even know she existsFrankie is a wonderful character While she doesn’t have an outgoing personality she is feisty smart and confident in her abilities She is also multi talented and doesn’t shy away from danger There is an undeniable chemistry between Frankie and Sean I enjoyed the way Ms Barbour played with each character’s perceptions of the other while they explored and came to terms with their own feelings Neither can deny their attraction to the other and as the danger intensifies the stakes get higherThe characters are all well developed and diverse The storyline is a rollercoaster ride that will keep you enthralled as Frankie dives head first into trouble trying to prove her worth to her profession and her mother I think readers will find this an intense but enjoyable jaunt into Francesca’s journeyFYI Special Agent Francesca Book 1 of Ms Barbour’s Undercover FBI series is available free in the Kindle Store This book contains adult language; several F bombs were dropped Sexual

and Sean I love the way alcohol affects Frankie hilarious The characters are not these oh so mighty Feds or cops that can do no wrong They have a humanity that is realistic and makes the story interesting This book definitely entices me to want to read from Mimi Barbour This book is so good It has suspense romance and laughter Since Francesca’s mother is high up in the FBI in New York she makes sure Francesca has non life threatening cases to work on Francesca is so frustrated with her mother she transfers out to Las Vegas Francesca is funny as she always seems to get in trouble in Las Vegas without trying It seems like everyone thinks she can’t handle herself but I think they never give her enough credit It made me mad because she was always trying to prover herself I was happy to see she found some wonderful surprises in Las Vegas One of the best things to happen is that Sean Collins a profiler is assigned to be her partner as the mob is after her There are some twists and turns that I loved I strongly encourage you to read the book This book is packed with action romance and some laughs FBI Special Agent Frankie Donovan is a strong character and someone you don’t want to mess with especially when she has her pepper spray Her life is in transition as she sets herself free from her mother’s control moves to Las Vegas takes on an undercover assignment gains a new family and falls in love Heck she evens finds a puppy The new man in her life is a keeper Sean Collins is a likable guy and a great match for Frankie There is a sexy scene of them in a strip club that adds some spice to the story All the characters are solid and believable except for Special Agent in Charge Haynes Honestly even being related to the Mayor wouldn’t have gotten this weak self centered man a supervisory position in the FBI So his character didn’t work for me I loved this suspenseful novel from the characters to the action and it was a treat to have a female agent as the main character I highly recommend the whole series but start with this oneMy Rating 5 stars FBI Agent Frankie Donovan went undercover to take down a crime boss threatening local businesses She went in as a hotel owner and even had a fake fiancéFrankie had been an undercover agent for uite some time but never had a chance to be really good at it because her mother always made sure she had easy cases Her mother had a lot of pull in that area since she was very high in the FBI Wanting to get away from her mother's interference was the reason she transferred to another city Frankie never knew who her father was but the transfer prompted her mother to finally tell her because he lived in the city she was going to and was a detective there too She wanted her daughter to be prepared in case they ran into each other I loved the way he and his family welcomed Frankie into their family And his children were thrilled to have a new sisterI liked how good Frankie was at her undercover work and thought it was exciting when she used her black belt skills The romance between Frankie and Sean was great This thriller will keep you on your toes with all its twists and turns I recommend this fast paced book 35 stars This is a potboiler novel and there is nothing wrong with those but unfortunately it was not even well written and had very poor editing and lots of typos All in all a rather cringe worthy romantic thriller with a flaky plot full of holes and corny language I'm afraid I will have forgotten it even before finishing my review I found that one of the most annoying things for me was that the author constantly confused psychology and psychiatry and alternatively made one of her protagonists a psychologist one minute and a psychiatrist the next rinse and repeat every few pages It made me mad as it shows lazy planning or none at all and it does not inspire much confidence that the author knew what she was doing I think I rolled my eyes uite a few times at some points on the clunky galumphing narrative and implausible dialogue I'm afraid this book left a lot to be desired Francesca is a talented determined focused undercover cop who manages to blend easily into the gritty underworld of Las VegasShe has lived under the microscope of her domineering perfectionist mother Her father is unknown but through a series of intriguing events her secure world is turned upside downShe meets Sean Collins a gifted police profiler and her life becomes even unstable Just when I thought I knew what Francesca was up to the author surprised meFrancesca is a complex and flawed character and Ms Barbour describes her with grace and compassion An engaging page turner Love the characters and the fast paced action in this story Francesca is as uniue a heroine as they come Vegas and its residents both those wanting to help and hinder Frankie don't stand a chance when she arrives in town Neither does her new partner the gruff but loveable and seriously sexy FBI profiler Dr Sean Collins who becomes Frankie's bodyguard The vast cast of charming and appropriately creepy this is Sin City after all secondary characters are too many to list but for me the dad that Frankie's never met tops the list
