Story Overview:
Secret Service Agent Griffin Keller always gets his man. And his woman. In pursuit of an international counterfeiter known only as “The Artist”, Griffin stumbles across paintings stolen from the White House and swapped with forgeries. His only clue to the thief’s identity–a dish towel from the White House kitchen.

White House pastry chef Marin Chevalier desperately needs a date to her cousin’s society wedding. Unfortunately, her busy schedule leaves her little opportunity to meet eligible men. When a sexy Secret Service agent shows up in her kitchen—and just about everywhere else she goes—Marin believes she’s finally met the perfect date. But when a series of frightening accidents and near misses plague her, Marin must rely on Griffin as more than just her “plus-one.”

As dead bodies begin to pile up around Marin, Griffin is convinced she’s the link to The Artist. Too bad the curvy chef has gotten under his skin like no other woman. When the clues finally fall into place and Griffin realizes Marin is not the suspect, but instead the target, he’ll risk everything in his arsenal to keep her safe.

My Review:
Yay, it was awesome to get to read another Tracy Solheim book and I really did enjoy this one. 

The setup is that Marin is the goddaughter of the First Lady. As such, she's been brought in to work as a pastry chef at the White House...a job she loves. 

She comes to Griff's attention when he's working on a counterfeiting case that leads to stolen art from the White House with a tie to Marin's family...she's the only tie he can find to this really tough case, so of course, she's his prime suspect, especially since she's only been at the White House for a couple of months.

The thing is...Marin has no idea what's going on besides things keep going wrong for her. And Griffin is there at every turn. Oh, and he keeps saving her life. 

There's a ton of action from page one of the book and I stayed completely immersed in the story. I really enjoyed it. I LOVED Marin...she was awesome. I also really liked Griffin and his backstory along with his friendships with the other agents. (This is going to be a great series.)

It was fun to get all the behind-the-scenes glimpses into this fictional White House. This was a great start to the series and really can't wait to read more. 

I definitely recommend it!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
