review 1: I received this book from GoodReads giveaway. I thought it had an interesting but cute story line. I actually enjoyed the first couple of chapters because I think we have always been there where it seems everything happens all at once.

Enter debonair Peter Barrett, WOOSH’s too handsome, too perfect, too charming fundraiser who sweeps Tess off her feet and into the depths of a possible conspiracy involving the NSA, deadly computer viruses and ancient cults that may indeed point to humanity’s demise. In travels that take her to Mexican jungle ruins and the placid English countryside, Tess bravely steps up to solve the mysteries behind WOOSH and along the way seeks to repair her career, her family relationships and most importantly, her floundering love life. Could it be that her perfect mate has been hiding in plain sight all along? Martinet keeps the reader guessing -- and laughing –throughout Tess’s comic adventures. Featuring a cast of memorably eccentric supporting characters and filled with innumerable humorous insights into contemporary mores, Martinet’s novel is intelligent entertainment. less
