A Dangerous Stage by Camy Tang

George is a contestant on a competitive TV show. His 13 year old daughter Hannah is a computer hacker. When Hannah hacks into the shows computers and finds out the show is being rigged both she and George find themselves in danger.

Tessa Lancaster is hired to protect George and Hannah while investigating who is behind the rigging of the show. Tessa hasn't spoken to Charles(her lawyer) for over a year. Not since she found out that he was the one that recommended her stay in prison be two years longer, and not allow her to attend her favorite aunts funeral. When she finds her clients in need of Charles' lawyer expertise she knows that there are going to be awkward days ahead. She is determined to fuel her ire towards Charles even when feelings of attraction arise between them.

When Tessa's past once again threatens to cross with her present she must be careful with both the FBI now investigating the case and her yakuza uncle who just may be in the thick of the talent show rigging.

You know a book is going to be good when it starts out with an awesome car chase and a woman kicking some bad-guy butt! This is the second book in the Protection For Hire series and it was just as exciting and nail-biting as the first one. There was also humor intertwined throughout the story and one laugh-out-loud-knee-slapping moment that still has me chuckling! A Dangerous Stage also delves into the characters spiritual feelings. Charles struggles with his need to share about his faith and Tessa struggles with her need to forgive. Both make Camy Tang's characters seem more true to life. I'm looking forward to the next book in The Protection for Hire series. I'm thinking Tessa has some serious unresolved childhood issues that are going to rear up in the next book! Can't wait!

    1. It was really good Renee. You'll have to read Protection For Hire first though to get a handle on the main character. But I really have enjoyed everything that Camy Tang writes. If you don't like suspense try her Sushi for One series. They are a hoot! Thanks for stopping by and commenting :)
