Today’s book review features
Never Miss by Melissa Koslin.
Former CIA sniper Kadance Tolle possesses a special set of skills and a rare pedigree. She comes from a family of assassins, and by saving Lyndon Vaile’s life she risks being found by them. Despite the danger, Kadance feels compelled to help Lyndon discover who is after him–and his research that seems to prove that the Ebola virus was manmade and is about to be weaponized.
With shadowy figures pursuing them and a Mastermind watching their every move, Kadance and Lyndon must scramble to stop an impending bioattack at the State of the Union address. But their warnings fall on deaf ears, and it becomes increasingly clear that there’s no one they can trust–except perhaps each other.
Strap in for a breakneck story that will have you up all night, hurtling toward the last page as the clock ticks and time runs out.
Never Miss by Melissa Koslin immediately caught my eye because of the idea of a female sniper. Kadance Tolle is a former CIA sniper who is escaping her family of assassins. Saving the handsome scientist Lyndon Vaile was simply being in the right place at the right time. Or so they think. Lyndon is an unexpected super geek who wins Kadance over as quickly as the reader.
Though I’ve been wary of virus stories this past year (because, yeah), it’s a romantic suspense theme that I’ve enjoyed before (the science is fascinating). The uniqueness of a female sniper was enough to overcome my hesitancy to read this story and I’m glad it did. Never Miss turned out to be less about the virus and more about stopping the attack while staying alive.
Whether they succeed and get a happily ever after – especially with Kadance’s past – well, that’s for the story to tell.
