Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Original Sin

Original Sin - Beth McMullen Lucy Parks Hamilton, aka Sally Sin, is an irresistible character combination--half a tough, smart former spy who can still dispense with a gang of teenage would-be carjackers on her own, and half a totally devoted but overwhelmed mom of a rollicking 3-year-old, a mom who loves nothing more than holding her jam-covered toddler while he sleeps. Forced out of retirement to deal with a spy case from the past, Lucy now alternates parental responsibilities with shady deeds that would be illegal if she weren't doing them for the good of the world, all of which is further complicated because she is trying to keep her loving, save-the-Earth husband clueless about her alternate life.
