Blog Tour: The Kill Shot by Nichole Christoff

Author: Nichole Christoff
Publisher: Random House Alibi
Date of publication: March 2015

Jamie Sinclair’s father has never asked her for a favor in her life. The former two-star general turned senator is more in the habit of giving his only child orders. So when he requests Jamie’s expertise as a security specialist, she can’t refuse—even though it means slamming the brakes on her burgeoning relationship with military police officer Adam Barrett. Just like that, Jamie hops aboard a flight to London with a U.S. State Department courier carrying a diplomatic pouch in an iron grip.

Jamie doesn’t have to wait long to put her unique skills to good use. When she and the courier are jumped by goons outside the Heathrow terminal, Jamie fights them off—but the incident puts her on high alert. Someone’s willing to kill for the contents of the bag. Then a would-be assassin opens fire in crowded Covent Garden, and Jamie is stunned to spot a familiar face: Adam Barrett, who saves her life with a single shot and calmly slips away. Jamie’s head—and her heart—tell her that something is very wrong. But she’s come way too far to turn back now.

If you are looking for a non-stop action packed book full of intrigue and spy chasing, then you should definitely check this one out.  The Kill Shot is the second book featuring Jamie Sinclair, private detective-turned-security-agent for hire. Her Senator father hires her for what seems to be a routine job; guarding someone delivering a US diplomatic pouch to  London and home again.  Once Jamie gets off the plane in London, she quickly realizes that this job is anything but routine.

I devoured this book.  I literally read it in a couple of hours because I couldn't walk away from it.  It was non-stop action from the beginning and didn't let up until the end. You never know who to trust in the book so it definitely will keep you on your toes.  Jamie Sinclair is a great character.  She is great at what she does, smart and beautiful.  She is hesitant to give into her feelings for Adam,  I did find that part of the book frustrating.  I hope that he shows up in the next book and that they make some more progress.  It would hate to have the" should I or shouldn't  I?" question go on for too many books.

I am looking forward to the next book,
