A code that only she can break... A man that only she was made for…
Julie Trueblood's name is found alongside an encrypted message in the safe deposit box of a dead man, bringing Navy investigator Hank Jared to her door, looking for answers. The daughter of the most infamous spy of the 21st century, Julie denies any knowledge of the man or the cipher and sends Hank away.
Hank is supposed to be in the Adirondacks walking his sister down the aisle, not chasing leads on a John Doe murder investigation that doesn't even appear to be Navy-related. He's a military man through and through, and while an order is an order, he hasn't given up hope of finding a way to make the ceremony. When Julie's life is in danger, Hank finds the perfect place to hide her, right by his side, pretending to be his girlfriend at his sister's wedding. Now he just needs to remember their relationship is all an act.
Sparks fly between Hank and Julie as they defend against a hidden enemy and seek out the truth in this deadly game of cat-and-mouse. The coded message brought them together, but its secrets hold the power to tear them apart. Guided by her generous and quirky Aunt Gwen, Julie will gather the courage to unravel the cipher that was meant for her to decode, as she learns to trust the man she was meant to love.

Books Make Me HAPPY
Story was good. The reason I continued to listen. The narrator was fine not great but ok. But the the narration timing felt rushed. Sounded like she was speed reading the story rather than allowing me to lose myself in the story. Narration just didn't do the story justice
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
The story did not have any subtleties that let you get to know and love (or even like) the characters. Sure you know he was in the Navy and she was a computer nerd but I didn't really get a feel for much of their personalities. Plus the aunt is clairvoyant, which normally I would have like a bit of the supernatural but with such a short book she was trying to cram too much different plots into the story. The narrator didn't help. While she had a pleasant enough voice her pacing was off, along with where she should have been pausing at. I ended up giving up on the story after about an hour and a half into the story. I know it is a short story but I figured it wouldn't get much better and I didn't pay much for it.
The story moved quickly through many details and emotions. The Military story of traitor vs ? was well planned. The love story on the other hand seemed too fast, a bit choppy and unbelievable. Loved listening but felt a nagging something that was lacking in the romance development.
I've never read this author before but I love audio books and I honestly chose this book because the price was right. I really like this book. it had romance, mystery, murder, and suspense. I recommend this. it really was very good.
Day dreaming book lover!
This romantic suspense has all the elements and is pretty good. I really enjoyed listening. There are just a couple of drawbacks. Since it is so short, the characters fall in love pretty quickly without the usual character development. The next problem is that it ends so quickly it leaves you hanging. They do have their HEA after some major twists and turns. Bottom line - its worth the credit.
On the first meeting, he tells her her father died and she throws him out. Within a few minutes of their second time meeting, they are kissing and sure they are meant for each other. Really?!
She read well and as interesting to listen to read.
I didn't finish the book; so, this would be difficult to answer.
