    I was a big fan of the Markham Sisters series (and bummed when it was over) and I was looking forward to this new series with Janet Markham and new husband Edward Bennett. I miss the quick, easy non-murder reads of the Markham Sisters series, but I did like how the author evolved it into this new series. It's more cozy than thriller, but definitely more action than in the original series and I enjoyed seeing Janet get involved with the job Edward was on (and his reluctant participation didn't ma I was a big fan of the Markham Sisters series (and bummed when it was over) and I was looking forward to this new series with Janet Markham and new husband Edward Bennett.

Not going to quibble about it) and how she "got the job done" was exciting and a lot of fun. I'm definitely looking forward to more of Janet and Edward's adventures!

    Enjoyable An enjoyable and light read but it stretched belief a few too many times. The central premise... in terms of why the honeymoon was interrupted... really didn't make much sense (a "retired" Englishman was the only option... for an American citizen in France?).

    Typical of this author, the first book of a new series shows great potential for an interesting theme, and it is a good story (hence the rating). It is however more of a fictional caricature rather than a typical realistic fiction with which a reader could become absorbed or relate with. For example, Janet’s husband disappears on the first night of their honeymoon, without a word of explanation, having been apparently mysteriously summoned to work after retiring, and then later says (to Janet) “ Typical of this author, the first book of a new series shows great potential for an interesting theme, and it is a good story (hence the rating).

For example, Janet’s husband disappears on the first night of their honeymoon, without a word of explanation, having been apparently mysteriously summoned to work after retiring, and then later says (to Janet) “you’re much more important to me than this job”. REALLY! Edward’s actions would suggest the exact opposite, let alone the incredible insensitivity of his actions. Of course, if his work were not more important than his relationship to Janet, the author would have little else to write about. Then there is the necessity to get to the top floor of a supposedly secure building that requires the use of pass keys. Yet, access can also be easily gained by simply walking up the stairs. REALLY! Fictional license once again becomes more fictional fantasy. There are also indications of the of the old habit used by this author of regurgitating the same details of the story between different characters, which serves simply serves to add unnecessary and tiresome volume to the book. Blessedly, perhaps because it is the first book of a new series, the reader is not again provided with a repetitive description of each character and their history. Hopefully (although I reserve my trust), this will not again become a trademark for this series.

Things get even more confusing when Janet accidentally sees Edward while she's walking along the Paris streets. He's part of the security force guarding a Texas billionaire, Bobby Armstrong. The next day, Janet meets Booby Armstrong as he's sneaking out of his private hotel, and she helps him converse with a French couple and then accompanies him to a cafe for breakfast. Bobby is impressed with Janet's mastery of French and impulsively hires her as his personal interpreter. While this reunites Janet and Edward (though Bobby isn't aware they're married), Mr. Jones, the head of the security force, is not pleased to have a "civilian" butting in. It seems Bobby has been the target of several life-threatening attacks, including one on his private jet. Can Janet and Edward together figure out who wants Bobby dead before somebody ELSE gets hurt?

    An amazing story! Well plotted, fast paced, intriguing, and an action-packed ending. I couldn't put it down until I'd finished. I've read all the Markham Sister s series, now this is a great opener for the new Edward & Janet Bennett series. However, you do have to go light on credibility to accept that the British and French govts would concern themselves so much, much less go all James Bond, for a dime-a-dozen Texas business tycoon, unless he's into supplying secret missles.

    I was so sad to finish the Markham sisters series, which I binge read in a week, as I had grown to adore the sisters, Edward, Michael, Stuart, Parsons, etc. I was excited to see this new series. I read the first one in a single sitting. I adore the way Edward and Janet feed off eachothers energy. I hope the rest of the series is released soon, as I am looking forward to them all!

    Diana Xarissa has another hit. I loved Janet and her sister's series and was not looking forward to it ending. But Diana has graced us with a continuation that is even more exciting. I am looking forward to this complete series. Diana Xarissa has another hit. I loved Janet and her sister's series and was not looking forward to it ending.

    Fun read I love that I will not have to find new "friends" to follow on adventures. I'm happy that Diana is continuing with both Janet Markham and Aunt Bessie.
