Butterflies and Spies

Almost a year ago to the day, I finished reading the novella "Cinders" by author Michelle Davidson Argyle. As soon as I put it down I knew I'd be checking back to see when her next story became available. It wasn't long (mere weeks, actually) before Ms. Argyle signed with a publisher and started planning a roll-out of her projects over the next couple of years. So it was with great excitement and enthusiasm that I was offered a free copy of her upcoming novel, "Monarch," in exchange for a review and blog post!

Here's the blurb from the book jacket:

Nick’s life as a CIA spy should be fulfilling, but it has only given him unhappiness—a wife who committed suicide, and two daughters who resent everything he has become. Now, stuck in the Amazon on the last mission of his career, he must track down Matheus Ferreira, a drug lord and terrorist the U.S. has tried to bring down for years. If he succeeds, he’ll have the chance to start his life over again.

Just when Nick is on the brink of catching Ferreira, he’s framed for a murder that turns his world upside down. His only chance of survival lies in West Virginia where Lilian Love, a woman from his past, owns the secluded Monarch Inn. He’s safe, but not for long…

Sounds awesome, right? Well, let me tell you, it is! Argyle unites the romantic and thriller genres in a way that will please fans of both and convert the holdouts. But I won't get into a full review just yet; that'll post on Monday.

In the meantime, if you're interested in getting your hands on a copy of "Monarch" by Michelle Davidson Argyle, click here! There you can find purchasing links, two sample chapters and a host of information on the eponymous Monarch butterflies.

If you still want more, follow the butterfly in this awesome trailer:

Check back on Monday for my full review!
