  Library Journal Review

Oftentimes, sequels leave first-time readers confused, fail to develop a realistic or engaging plot, and don't add a creative new dimension to already established characters. Jenoff's follow-up to Almost Home avoids all these pitfalls. After U.S. Foreign Service diplomat Jordan Weiss discovers that her college lover Jared didn't really die in an accidental drowning, she sets off to find him and discover why he faked his death a decade ago. While following a mysterious woman somehow connected with him, Jordan reluctantly joins forces with Ari, a former Israeli operative with his own cryptic goals. Can the two of them trust each other and find the answers they are searching for? There are exciting twists and turns as Jordan and Ari follow the trail and begin to develop a cautious, potential romance. The story ends with a wallop, and Jenoff hints at a continuation of the series. VERDICT In this intelligent mixture of romance and espionage thriller, the main characters are complex, the relationship is slowly developed and realistic, and the story is just convoluted enough to engage but not confuse readers. Guaranteed to appeal to a wide variety of fiction readers, it's a winner in every way. [Ebook ISBN 978-1-4165-9795-7.]-Margaret Hanes, Civic Ctr. Lib., Warren, MI (c) Copyright 2010.

  Booklist Review

Jenoff picks up the story of federal agent Jordan Weiss from Almost Home (2009), after she has a bombshell dropped in her lap. Her college boyfriend Jared Short, dead for ten years, is not dead at all. He faked his death and went on the run because he discovered something he should not have --threads of a secret plan that stretched across Europe and even into the U.S. State Department. Now that she knows he's alive, Jordan only wants to see him again. So she drops off the feds' radar, and uses gut instinct and a few scant clues and hints to try to track Jared down. Jordan crosses Europe following his last known connection, a mysterious woman named Nicole, who is also being tailed by Ari, an enigmatic private investigator, on suspicion of forgery charges. As Jordan and Ari follow the trail across the Mediterranean, they unveil a grand conspiracy in this dramatic, sweeping, and exciting sequel.--Hatton, Hilary Copyright 2010 Booklist
