“Lady Rose: Secret Agent 36-24-36” by Jean Marie Rusin
By Deborah T. Kilday
When I first started reading this book, the writing drew me immediately into the story, was full of action and I was swept away into a world of espionage and mystery. As the story progressed, I started to feel a kinship to Lady Rose. It made me question why she had chosen this life of danger, and I felt myself right alongside her hoping she would be safe from harm.
If you are looking for a fast-paced story that you can read easily in one afternoon, then this is a story to consider. My only regret is that I feel there should have been some history as to why Lady Rose had chosen this profession in the first place. The other thing I noticed is there are many characters that stumble into the story and then disappear just as fast as they came, never to be heard from again. In my opinion, the author should have just stuck to the four main characters, and if she were to have added other characters, not to name them but instead just identify them as the cab driver or hit man, for instance. As I read along, I felt myself wanting to warn Lady Rose of her choices and felt helpless that I could not.
This is the type of book that doesn’t give you time to think while you read it. Then after you are done reading, you start thinking of all the events, find yourself rooting for the heroin and secretly wishing her well against all odds.
