Quinn is now working for the CIA doing research and training as an agent. She is loving the work, especially when she works with her spy boyfriend, James. Since Quinn has relocated to the east coast, we see the progression of their relationship. Which I loved. They are so into one another!
While they are attending an Indian ancient manuscript exhibition, the Indian Ambassador Sharma is kidnapped along with many of the manuscripts. Soon Quinn and James are off to India to track down the kidnappers and figure out why the manuscripts were taken. The amount of Indian history learned in this book is astounding!!
The author has weaved a story around a true historical event and it works wonderfully! Susan Mann took the time to explain about the thoughts and feelings of all the religions of India and how they intertwine. James and Quinn are tasked with finding the ambassador and solving the mystery of the missing books of the Sikh Reference Library. How they find each piece of information and slowly put it all together, I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know what comes up next!!
A Covert Affair is book two in the Librarian and the Spy series but it is easily read as a standalone novel. Quinn and James actually meet in book one but the secondary characters are unique to this book! I really like the mix of romantic humor, adventure, and history. Quinn and James are great together and I can’t wait for book three, An Uncommon Honeymoon! I’m sure it’s going to be just as intriguing as books one and two!
