“I very much enjoyed Ms. Jones’ blend of romance, suspense, and comedy. Her characters are very dimensional. The hit man still haunts me because of the way his depth is revealed as the story unfolds. Action and comedy are smoothly written, making it easy to watch it as a movie in your head. But, don’t count on intermissions, you’ll want to read it straight through.” Midwest Book Review
“A highly suspenseful, should-be-a-movie, totally entertaining tale of derring-do, the Last Enemy defies categorization–at least by me. All I can tell you is: I enjoyed every word and was sorry when I reached the end.
