Supermodel Jessica Cole has no intention of ever spying again after she was nearly killed by an embittered ex-model and a rogue MI6 agent. That is until she's blackmailed into posing undercover as bodyguard to a very rich fellow model.
What seems like a simple job aboard a luxurious yacht in Monaco soon turns into a deadly mission to stop the most dangerous weapon in the world falling into the wrong hands. Jessica will need every gadget in her make-up bag if she wants to get out of this one alive.
This book had me wondering what I was in for. Schoolgirl, model, spy who was nearly killed. I liked the story line and that I didn't need to read the first book in the series. My 9 year old would love to read all of these and the gadgets, I wish I could afford even one of them. I think I would like the heart charm bracelet, the things I could do with that.
I believe that it should be targeted to the early to mid teenage range and it is definitely one for the girls. Some of the names are a bit hard, even for me to wrap my tongue around but I like the fact they shorten them where possible. Kat comes across as a rather spoilt rich girl and perhaps that is why she is in trouble.
I think in the right frame of mind you could read this more than once but I don't know how soon I will be doing it. My 15 year old tried to read this and said it's bit boring and hard to read. It is well written but didn't engage her or hold her interest past chapter two.
I look forward to Jessica's future cases (is that what you call them?). I like the fact that this is a larger book (page wise) and the title is easy to read on the spine so that you don't have to hunt for it.
