From author Normandie Fischer comes a new romantic suspense that takes the reader from the hills of Italy to the Jordanian desert and from there to an Israel on the brink of war with Hamas.
Rina Lynne has never traveled far from Morehead City, North Carolina. So when she inherits her father’s secret stash, she’s ready to kick up her heels and go adventuring before she settles down to marry her long-time fiancé. First stop, Italy.
Enter Tony (aka Anton), an engineering geek conned into helping his Israeli cousins as a sort-of spy. From the moment he meets Rina, he’s distracted, which is not a good idea when there’s already been murder and theft. And from the moment Rina meets Tony, she’s fascinated, which is also not a good idea. He’s an Arab-American, and she’s half-Jewish. And engaged. And then there are all those bodies dropping around them, each linked to the gathering storm in the Middle East.

Meet the author:
Rina, an 5′ 10″ young American woman, has lived in shadows her entire life. Her miserly father controlled her life and forced her to live a life in penury and her manipulative fiance Jason will soon take over. Her life is without passion. When her father dies leaving her unexpectedly financially independent, she is off to Italy to discover the world before she settles down to marry Jason.
However, Perugia has more in store for Rina than just language classes and exquisite food. She meets two men on a train. She is unexpectedly attracted to a tall, polite, handsome Arab-American named Tony. The other man travelling next to her is hiding a gun under his jacket and looks middle-eastern. While on the train a murder is committed. Danger seems to be closing in on Rina and as she tries to discover exactly who Tony is, is he American or Arabic? and why is the gunman from the train constantly in her peripheral vision? Although she fears for her life and wants to get on the next plane back to the US, her instinct tells her to stay and solve the enigma about Tony.
This story will keep your heart thumping as the storyline is alternately told by both Rina and Tony. This is the first book I’ve read by Normandie Fischer and I found it to be a fast-paced, believable and intelligent read.
