Walking the edge
The next step might be the last…
A woman without a past
Left amnesiac after an accident, Amelia Jamison’s instincts slowly rise from the depths of oblivion to question her life as the wife of a cold, manipulating, and distant man. Wisps of a dream show her another man she may have known intimately, but is he a memory, or a figment of her imagination?
A man with too much information
After many aliases, today Gerard Besson is simply a police commissaire in Marseille. When a mysterious woman starts to follow him, he is suspicious. But things aren’t what they seem, and as he reluctantly gets closer to her, dredges of his painful, buried past spring to light and make him question her identity.
Each seems to have led two different lives
But neither is prepared for what awaits them when they cross the fine line between knowing your true self and that of your alter ego.
Danger is the name of the game, and as it catches up with them in the French Provence, both know they better be ready for the inevitable fall.
I don’t know why I’ve been avoiding the combination of romance with Mystery/Thrillers for so long, these books are so much fun! Amelia makes for such a perfect action hero, and this was a fantastic adventure from beginning to end. If you love anything spy related, you’re going to want to read this book (and probably the rest of the series).
Now as much as I loved Amelia (and Gerard… and Amelia and Gerard together!!!) what really made this book shine for me was the plotting and pacing. Once you pick up Walking The Edge, you won’t be putting it down any time soon. It did take me a while to figure out what was going on, but once I was in I was ALL in. There were at least three parts (that I can remember) that I was completely blown away by what happened.
I hope to be reading more from Zee Monodee (what a cool name!) soon. It looks like she write across the whole spectrum of romance so there will always be something new to check out!
