Rating: 4 Cups
Marc Devaux is an undercover FBI agent. He has been working on a major case for the past two years and cannot afford any screw ups, or he may end up dead. But suddenly things go crazy; he gets shot at and mistakes Rusti for her identical twin, Rene.
Rusti Collins is a kindergarten teacher who gets thrown right in the middle of murder and mayhem when she fills in dancing for her sister. Yet that is just the beginning as she has recently found her sister after many years, she now loses her to a senseless murder.
Marc and Rusti must find a way to work together, but can Rusti trust who Marc says he is? Is he really undercover, or is he more involved with the crime boss than he says? Marc cannot help the feelings he begins to have for Rusti, but he cannot let them get in the way or they might end up running out of time and wind up dead.
Whew, Steamy hot is what develops between Marc and Rusti. They are both stronger characters that can hold their own, but they also make a great team, even with a few blunders along the way. Silent Cymbals has a great storyline that flows smoothly, bringing the reader, mystery, murder and romance. I would say add this book by Ms. Lakes to your reading list.
