Review of Finding Marie

From Back Cover:

Marie Belanger knows nothing about the covert assignments her naval lieutenant husband goes on from time to time, but she's pleased that their tour in Japan is at an end. What once seemed an interminable assignment is finished , and now Marie and Pierre can think about a Stateside posting and perhaps even starting a family. While Pierrre wraps up his duties, Marie plans a brief visit to her her family home in Maine.

But life turns upside down when Maire unexpectedly finds a computer flash drive in her carry-on luggage at the San Francisco airport. Moments earlier the woman she had been sitting with on the plane from Tokyo had been murdered. Suddenly her journey from California to Maine becomes a nightmare as Marie is forced to run for her life. Pierre, afraid for his wife, contracts his best friend, Lt. Commander George Hudson, and together they set out on a search for Marie that spans the country. Yet as hard as they try, they keep finding themselves one step behind their enemies, who are just one step behind Marie.

In my opinion:
Finding Marie is a book full of intrigue and danger. I stayed up late to finish reading the book. I enjoyed reading about Marie and seeing Peirre agian. The book is a fox hunt with Marie as the fox and terroist as the hunters. Susan as always pulls the reader on an emotional journey. There was a time I thougth Marie made some questionable decisions but it did not hamper the story and worked itself out. I would reccommend reading this novel. Even though it is a sequel to Frasier Island it can stand alone.
