Learning to Spy by Leigh Talbert Moore



Summary from Goodreads  

Prentiss Puckett is certain of three things:
-Graduation is two weeks away.
-Summer only gets hotter in south Mississippi.
-She’s getting a job with air-conditioning.

She did not expect to be kidnapped walking to work.
And she never expected to become a hero.

Red Dawn meets L O S T in this new action-adventure romance from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.

My review

*I received an eBook copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.*

‘Learning to Spy’ is the second episode of the novel ‘Behind the Stars’. It continues where ‘Captive’ ended. Prentiss is still searching for a way out. Now she knows that she can’t just run away, so she will have to find another way. A new character, Gallatin, is introduced. He is the brother of Cato, who is in charge of the camp. Prentiss agrees to do some extra work with the cows, so that she can befriend Gallatin, who may be able to help her escape.

I give this book 5 stars. Not much does happen in this novella, but things get clearer. We come to know a bit more of what is happening. But the story is still as interesting as the first episode. It is full of mystery. Publishing the series in episodes makes it more exciting and it builds the suspense very nicely.

I really want to know what happens in ‘Harvest Moon’. I am looking forward to it. The wait will be painful.

P.S. I really like Gallatin, I hope he doesn’t turn out to be a bad character!
