This review is for 3 novellas (each about 90-100 pages) Lust, Money & Murder (Books 1, 2 & 3)

Description: Born in the worst suburb in Pittsburgh, Elaine Brogan is bright, beautiful and bold. When her father is falsely arrested for passing counterfeit $100 bills, Elaine vows to become a Secret Service agent and track down the man responsible. Elaine soon finds herself thrown into an adventure that takes her halfway around the world, from dark and mysterious Sofia, Bulgaria, to Moscow Russia, and finally, to Milan, Italy. In the end, will Elaine find the love and happiness she truly seeks…or will she turn to a life of obscene wealth, power and corruption?

In Short: I was blown away by this book. This book takes you on an emotional roller coaster. Reading this book I laughed, I cried, I gasped, and I swore. It has an intricate story full of exciting events, tense situations, sad scenes, funny scenes, twists and turns, and a great ending. The tenacious heroine is likable and you cheer for her as she seeks her revenge.  

Pros: This book is paced perfectly. It is loaded with action and never slows down. I have found from reading books by Mike Wells that he doesn't waste your time with fluff and he produces a satisfying ending for his books. The settings are well crafted and easily transport you into the book. I loved seeing her entire journey from her childhood through the execution of her plan to become a secret service agent and then through her quest for vengeance. If you like thrilling tales full of mystery, suspense, love, betrayal and revenge you will love this book!

Cons: There is nothing bad I can say about this book.

Like many series these books do not stand alone and you will want to read the entire series in order to get the full story.

You can find the first book, a freebie teaser kindle edition on Amazon.

Buy the full set of 3 books for kindle currently only $4.99 on Amazon.
