Pippa has been hiding for years from a cult she escaped from. She is a shut in and has only one friend Trixie, that escaped with her. The Prophet of the cult wanted her as his and planned to marry her when she turned eighteen but she left the night before.
Malcolm aka Mal was an undercover cop but has retired and moved in next door to Pippa. He gets a job offer to work with Homeland Defense Department but they are on their own. His assignment is to find out what Pippa knows about the cult. So he’s undercover once again. It’s hard to get close because she’s afraid of people. He slowly works his way in and becomes infatuated with her. Pippa thinks he’s a government worker that keeps requisitions for paper, pens, etc. Mal is also going undercover at the cult to find out what they are planning and how long they have to stop it.
Pippa finds out Mal has known who she was the whole time and she packs her stuff and leaves. Before she gets far she gets a call from Isaac, the supposed prophet, wanting her to return or he’ll kill her friend Trixie. Before she gets to go, Mal catches her and takes her back to the office. Where she is interrogated and then a plan is made to stop Isaac but she must go to him. Mal isn’t happy but can he save her in time before all heck breaks loose?
This is the first in a new series and I absolutely love it!! You have a crazy cult, action, lies, sex, an alcoholic dog and a cute kitten. The characters are interesting and funny. The story will keep you hooked until the very end. I can’t wait for the next one. Ms. Zanetti knows her stuff and writes it so you feel like you’re right there with them.
