Emma Sharpe is recovering from a shattering loss while her husband, Colin Donovan, is deep into his latest undercover mission. So they’re grateful to enjoy a peaceful autumn weekend together on the southern Maine coast to celebrate Colin’s brother Andy’s wedding.
But the peace is short-lived when Kevin Donovan, a marine patrol officer, receives a call to check on suspected food poisoning at a party aboard a yacht. Colin decides to tag along. He is surprised to recognize one of the victims as an undercover British intelligence officer, and it quickly becomes evident they’re dealing with something very sinister. At the same time a valuable painting by Irish artist Aoife O’Byrne—a friend of Emma and Colin’s—is missing from the yacht, and the connections make the investigation international and extremely personal.
Emma and Colin discover they are up against a deadly foe who plans to strike again. With the help of HIT, their small, elite Boston-based FBI team, they must foil an attack that will have devastating effects. It’s a case that will alter their lives beyond anything they’ve ever imagined…

I haven't yet experienced the Donovan's and Sharpe's since this is my first read by this author but I have to admit I am intrigued. I did enjoy this author's style and her characters. It's a fast paced read with a lot of twist and turn that keep you on the edge of your seat and no lasting suspects. They thought they would have some peaceful sweet time together but they are out of luck. A simple food poisoning ends up being so much more. If you are a follower you know that MI5 and FBI and more are strung throughout these two clans and there always seems to be action surrounding them. It's a race to the finish and lives are on the line. With a surprising twist and lots of colorful characters it's a great read.
