La Crimson Femme
Review: Sugar Plum Spies by Jennifer Estep
★★★★ @Jennifer_Estep #SugarPlumSpies
A lovely holiday novella, Sugar Plum Spies brings us back to the world of spies with psychic abilities. I love this hard to categorize genre. I read this book in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed it. We see Charlotte and Desmond again. This time, they willingly pair up as partners on an undercover mission that goes so wrong.
I am really enjoying this series. It is fun, snarky, and reminds me a little bit Alias with a psychic twist. This seemingly straightforward mission goes sideways so badly. I love it. Charlotte rises to the occasion and handles the situation. Desmond's interaction with Charlotte this time around is more of a partnership which is nice. And their sexual tension is delightful. I love this spy series and this little novella right to tide us over before the next book is a great holiday read.
Lastly, I normally wouldn't comment on a cover as I don't look at them much. However, I find the covers of this series appealing. I'm not sure if it is the colour scheme or the way it is laid out. It is eye catching and memorable. It also pulls me in to want to read it all over again. This romantic suspense is recommended to readers who like 007 type agents with a paranormal bent.
