Review of Finding Marie

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 finsihed, and now Maire and Pierre can think about a stateside posting and perhaps even starting a family. While Pierre wraps up his duties, Marie plans a brief visit to her family home in Maine.

But life turns upside down when Marie 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 plan 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, contacts 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.

My thoughts:
I read the sequel to Finding Marie and I really enjoyed the book. Susan creates such dynamic characters. The book is fast paced and Susan does an excellent job of putting Marie is some tricky situations which she creatively gets out of. I did get frustrated along with Pierre as he continually came to her rescue too late. This is a great sequel to Frasier Island and I look forward to many more great reads from Susan Page Davis.
