Review: Destruction of the Great Wall by R. Ann Siracusa

Destruction of the Great Wall by R. Ann Siracusa

Publisher: Sapphire Blue Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Heat Rating: 3



I’m Harriet Ruby, Tour Director Extraordinaire. At last, one of my fondest wishes has come true! Will Talbot, my favorite Super Spy and the love of my life, wants to include me in his covert mission to recover a list of double agents for the U.S. government.

Wow! Usually, I want to know everything, and he can’t tell me anything. Now, I’ll be part of the action. I am so-o going to love this!

Not that I have a big role. I only have to act as if we’re husband and wife when he accompanies me on my China tour. The tour group members are strangers we’ll never see again, and we can spend three intimate weeks together.

I mean, how hard can that be?

Surprise, surprise! My parents show up on the tour as replacements for some cancellations. Now we have to pretend we’re married to protect Will’s cover.

And then, other problems erupt when someone tries to kill me, and terrorists kidnap me and my mother to lure Will into a trap. Not to mention the damage my assault rifle does to the Great Wall…

Oh, man. It isn’t my fault. Really!

Hunter’s Review

This is a really fun book. It continues the story of Harriet Ruby, Tour Director Extraordinaire. If you haven’t read the other books in the series, I’m going to suggest that you go buy them because (a) they’re fun to read and (b) they help you understand what is going on in this book.

The writing is light weight and the hero and heroine continue on with their love affair, which is, as always, satisfying. Ms. Siracusa does a wonderful job of describing China—sometimes too good of a job, occasionally description slows down the plot—and I think you’ll enjoy the setting as really unique.

Will there come a point when I get enough of Harriet’s antics? Maybe. But I haven’t gotten there yet and I’m really enjoying the series. I think you will too. So go buy book 1 if you haven’t so you can read this book. You won’t be sorry you did.

4 Tea Cups!

I totally agree with the Hunter review. Fun read and lots of info for anyone who wants to learn about different countries. Ms Siracusa obviously has visited the places she writes about and has a talent for sharing information.
