Monarch by Michelle Davidson Argyle (Contest Too)

"Nick’s life as a CIA spy should be fulfilling, but it has only given him unhappiness — a wife who committed suicide and two daughters who resent everything he has become. Now, stuck in the Amazon on the last mission of his career, he must track down Matheus Ferreira, a drug lord and terrorist the U.S. has tried to bring down for years. If he succeeds, he’ll have the chance to start his life over again.

Just when he’s on the brink of catching Ferreira, he’s framed for a murder that turns his world upside down. His only chance of survival lies in West Virginia where Lilian Love, a woman from his past, owns the secluded Monarch Inn. He’s safe, but not for long …" (from the back of the book)

This book was a refreshing change for me. I've been reading a lot of YA and enjoying it, but my first love is suspense so I was excited to receive this book to review. The first sentence drew me in and I found myself speculating from page one who the "bad" guy would end up being. Michelle Davidson Argyle definitely keeps the reader guessing about what will happen next and how it will all come together in the final chapter. I'm excited to read Michelle's next book which will be released Fall 2012.

Michelle is a mother, artist, and writer who lives in the Rocky Mountains with her sword-wielding husband and energetic daughter. She writes contemporary, literary, and fantasy fiction. Michelle believes imagination is the only rule in fiction. This is the foundation of her writing, and she plans to strengthen it with each and every story she writes. You can learn more about Michelle and her books here.
