Keeping Grace Alive by Annie Lee

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  Credibility is stretched just a very little bit – an abducted girl, Gracie, falls in love with her conveniently good-looking kidnapper, a streetwise hitman, Jessie, who has been in love with her since the day he first saw her, but who has also been assigned to kill her, which of course he doesn't.  It's very hard not to like Jessie and his band of 'brothers'; despite their dark and dangerous job in life, they have endearing and, yes, lovable qualities (again, really?).  But, just lose yourself – it's well-written, moves along at just the right pace, it's got hold-your-breath tense moments and some page sizzling bedroom scenes – all really good stuff if you can let your imagination just run a little wild!

I do, really, really want to know, though – who looked after Brear and Honey, the Bernese mountain dogs in Jessie's mountain cabin, when Jessie and the gang were off snuffing the bad guys?

  1. Excellent review, Cathy! Maybe Annie will post an answer to your last question herself. Let me see what I can do.
