Book Review of Agent in Old Lace by Tristi Pinkston

I was hooked on Agent in Old Lace by Tristi Pinkston from page one and couldn’t put it down, although I never did figure out what the cover had to do with the storyline. Also, none of the characters ever wore old lace, although the FBI agent dressed in drag most of the time, so I guess that’s where that comes from.

When the main character, Shannon is kidnapped and held at gunpoint by her boyfriend, her life changes in an instant. That starts a few chapters full of narrowly escaping from his grasp and keeping me, as the reader, on the edge of my seat.

Thankfully, a very handsome FBI agent swoops in to dress as a woman and protect Shannon for the duration of her escape from her ex-boyfriend. In any Romance story, inevitably they fall in love. Agent in Old Lace is no exception. I found it hard to picture anyone believing that this hot guy would look enough like a woman to pull off the deception, but okay.

Tristi’s writing style is superb and the character development was well-done. I always prefer reading in third-person, past-tense point of view so that made reading Agent in Old Lace that much more enjoyable. Overall great read. I highly recommend.
