Summary: Velvet Templeton is the personal secretary to the Director of the Agency. Normal stuff, except the agency is full of spies. And one of them has been killed. And all the evidence points to Velvet. So she starts looking into it and uncovers a conspiracy bigger than the best secret agent’s murder. Contrary to the Agency’s current beliefs, Velvet Templeton isn’t just a flirtatious, detail-oriented secretary, she’s a bada**. To those opposing her:
Good Luck.

Review: My friend lent me this a long time ago, but it took me a while to finally get around to reading it. It was amazing! I read the entire series in the same day because I couldn’t put it down. I especially wasn’t expecting the end, which is amazing. There was turn and intrigue around every corner and I never knew what to expect. Velvet Templeton also makes mistakes, which is amazing since she’s a “strong female protagonist”, but kudos to Brubaker et al for not making her a tropey, cliché. Well, 100%.

Recommendation: If you like James Bond, but wish he was a woman and better written and with more emotion, check out Velvet!
