Fun Title ~ A Dangerous Stage by Camy Tang ~Review


The second book in the “Protection for Hire” series is an explosive title filled with thrilling car chases, up close and personal hostage situations and good old romantic suspense to keep the pages turning quick and the reader riveted.

            I admit, I did not easily follow all of the “suspense” in this romantic suspense. I know, my bad, and I don’t put the book down because of it. I one of those readers that loves a good suspense, but must admit, most of the time I can’t follow the story line worth a hoot.
           
However, I can say that the writing was great. Words painted pictures on the mind’s eye and were always pretty clear about what I was seeing. When “Gramps” gave up the ghost…well I admit I was a bit sad to see that car of a character bite the exhaust pipe. Point of my telling you that? There is some fun situational humor mixed into the book which definitely gives it a rare, unique flavor.
           
Things I would have liked more of? A bit more romance. And a stronger story line about Tessa’s dad. But I have a feeling the latter might be coming in another title and there was plenty going on in Tessa emotionally to be adding anything else.
            
Fun title. Would definitely recommend that you read the first “Protection for Hire” before picking up this one. Both are fun, light and snappy…good combinations for a contemporary novel.         
           
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

More about the novel...

Tessa Lancaster worked for her uncle in the Japanese mafia until she was sent to prison for a murder she didn't commit. Now, after finding God behind bars, she takes odd jobs as a bodyguard to keep her distance from the family business. In A Dangerous Stage, the second book in Camy Tang's Protection for Hire series, Tessa gets caught up in the web of lies surrounding a shady singing competition. Hired by one of the contestants, she works with Charles Britton---the lawyer who sent her to prison---to discover the dark figures manipulating the contest from behind the scenes. Tessa's abilities will be tested like never before as she's forced to balance the safety of her client's family and her deepening relationship with Charles. In the midst of the chaos, she holds on to her faith to keep her safe and bring down the shadowy organization.

  1. I'm a definite fan of Camy Tang's writing! I've read all of the Sushi for One series and one of her Love Inspired books and I wasn't disappointed in any of them :) I think that in the next Protection for Hire book we will definitely be seeing into the mystery of Tessa's father. Can't wait!

    1. Yep you are! ;-) It's been great fun to chat with you about this series. Is there going to be another book?? The end of this one kind of led me to assume so, but I haven't heard anything as far as buzz online.
