Also liked the relationship between the main characters. Wasn't the typical poor communication and misunderstanding leading to a big rift that has to be closed by the end of the story. The characters have doubts, but they voice them and for that I liked them and stayed with this book to the end.

Typical, fun, adventure/romance story, but this book is well written and the quirky cast of characters (especially Edgar), the traveling "mishaps," and the contrasting personalities of the hero and heroine make for a lively story.
THE STORY revolves around John, the experienced, analytical, plan ahead, "techy" security agent and Lily, the sociable, spontaneous, independent trainee, who are sent to find and protect an undercover agent with critical evidence. The goal is to bring him safely back to the states, while being hunted by multiple, unknown factions trying to kill them and destroy the evidence.
THE AUTHOR, C. Miles has created two interesting and contrasting characters. While John approaches the job with patience, strength, and focus, Lily is more a "free spirit." HOWEVER, Lily's character as an ex-cop and a martial arts expert, is clearly underwritten. Although not completely helpless, for the first half of the book she seems to need rescuing more than her qualifications would imply.
On the plus side, it was refreshing to see them work effectively together without constantly arguing/bickering, and to see the unpredictable romance unfold slowly. While the Lily's sexual expertise was decidedly old fashioned, it seemed in keeping with the personality of the lead characters and with the story.
The ongoing joke about the loss of clothes/shoes (funny up to a point), and exotic island locations where Edgar turns up unexpectedly, made for a fun, easy read.
You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart,or E. Palfrey. For sweet, funny, heart touching romances try Susan Fox and Cara Colter. For better mystery/detective writers you might try J. D. Robb, D. Stabenow, Julie Miller, Gayle Wilson, or Sharon Sala.
