Quinn and James are wonderful together once again on their new adventure through India.I really feel these books fill an interesting niche They are action spy thrillers with romance, adventure and interesting, intelligent plots, but they are not as violent or strictly action driven as most in this genre I like to call these books cozy spy thrillers and just what I am looking for to curl up with for an afternoon adventure.Quinn Ellington has moved to D.C and is now a reference librarian at the CIA She will be training at The Farm to become an agent like her boyfriend, James Bond Anderson Their relationship is progressing and it is because they are close and Quinn has a passionate love of books and knowledge that they are both sent on a mission as husband and wife to the Punjab district in India To save a kidnapped ambassador s life, they have to find and return a stolen Sikh library of historic and religious books.Ms Mann had me completely engrossed in the descriptions of India and especially the Punjab district Her information on the Sikh culture and history displayed extensive research and it was well paced throughout the story without feeling like an info dump The Indian characters were believable and empathetic.Quinn is an empowered female heroine, who uses her intelligence as well as her physical prowess James is her perfect hunky, spy hero who is also learning to not be overly protective and let Quinn investigate avenues on her own Their banter is fun and entertaining The sexual relationship is hot, but not overly explicit This book can be read as a standalone, but Quinn and James s relationship changes and grows in each book.This is a series to follow Thanks very much to Kensington Books and Net Galley for allowing me to read this eARC in

of the Librarian and the Spy Escapades series with an intriguing mission and wonderful development in the characters relationship.Agent in training Quinn Ellington is currently working in the CIA library while she completes the rest of her training to become a covert operative First and foremost a librarian, it s no hardship for Quinn to work in the secret library While attending an event at the Library of Congress with her handsome spy boyfriend James Anderson, the Indian ambassador is kidnapped and some sacred Hindu manuscripts are stolen With a long lost sacred library at the heart of the kidnapping, Quinn is tasked with assisting James in locating the library and the ambassador The pair travel to India to begin their investigation and soon discover their mission may becomplicated than they originally thought.Quinn is an absolute delight and my bookish heart connects with her in a wonderful way Quinn loves books in a way most people never will and embraces the librarian side of herself She s fantastic at viewing problems in a different way than most and puts her librarian skills to use to discover information quickly Quinn still worries about how good of a job she can do on her missions considering she has not completed all of her training She s slowly learning to embrace her natural instincts and is turning into a fantastic spy.Building upon their success from the mission in The Librarian and the Spy, Quinn and James continue to work well together James has complete faith in Quinn s abilities and encourages her to trust her instincts I enjoy their pairing both professionally and personally There s a lot of fun and banter in their relationship and the two help each other stay centered They both worry about the other s well being, but for the most part trust each other to get the job done There are a few hiccups in their working together but they actually communicate their problems and work through them easily enough.The plot surrounding the missing library was completely fascinating After finishing the book, I looked into the library and the history surrounding it was quite interesting It seems the author stuck very close to the truth and I appreciated the level of research she clearly did As most of the book takes place in India, I got to experience a new place I hadn t read a book set in before The author goes into great detail about the culture and while I don t know if everything is 100% accurate seeing as it isn t my culture, it was fun experiencing something completely new to me The book has made me want to find books written by people who live in India and read first hand accounts of life there A Covert Affair was such a fun read and I m excited to see what Quinn and James get up to in future installments I would highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a fun romance series that follows the same couple in each bookI received a copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review Librarians solving mysteries and having adventures seems to be a new trend lately In addition this series, there s also a new cozy mystery with a librarian heroine, Blue Ridge Library Mysteries by Victoria Gilbert I hope we ll seelibrarian heroines It s pretty cool to see them using their knowledge of books, and their computer and reference skills outside a library setting Quinn Ellington, a reference librarian, has joined the CIA as librarian and is in training to be an agent While Librarians solving mysteries and having adventures seems to be a new trend lately In addition this series, there s also a new cozy mystery with a librarian heroine, Blue Ridge Library Mysteries by Victoria Gilbert I hope we ll seelibrarian heroines It s pretty cool to see them using their knowledge of books, and their computer and reference skills outside a library setting Quinn Ellington, a reference librarian, has joined the CIA as librarian and is in training to be an agent While still in training she and her boyfriend James are sent on assignment to India.I was pretty happy so see that they were heading to India as I ve always been fascinated by that country and few genre novels are set there, that I know of anyway As I read the story and the historical events, I became curious if they had actually happened or if Mann invented them for the story turns out they were real with a little artistic license taken While I ve never been to India, the details felt real, and I enjoyed seeing India though Quinn eyes If I ever get to India, I want to go visit the Sikh Reference Library as it sounds amazing.Quinn and James are cute together and really sweet They re young, maybe mid 20s in fact James seemed a little too young for his job and the missions he s supposedly been on At times I felt like I was reading a slightlygrown up version of the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew If you are a serious suspense or action reader, this book probably won t meet your need But if you like romance, humor, a little intrigue, and some action, you might like this book.Some favorite quotes It s part of the Kama Sutra written on palm leaves, he said and bent to get a closer look With illustrations, I see, although the pieces seem to be strategically places so we cant see the, ah He stopped and tipped his head to one side Techniques I could come here every day for weeks and not see everything And that s not even counting if they let me in the book stacks They d never be able to flush you out I can hear the librarians now We don t know where she hides exactly, but we put food out every night, and in the morning, it s gone
