Inside Story (Frasier Island, Book 3) by Susan Page Davis

Following up on the adventures of men in uniform in Frazier Island and Finding Marie, Susan Page Davis offers readers another suspenseful novel of international diplomacy and romance.

Claudia Gillette, an upscale magazine correspondent, will go to any lengths for a good story. Bill White, a navy lieutenant, performs secret missions all over the world. Attraction sizzles between them, but these two can’t synchronize their globe–trotting watches long enough for a date. Claudia also has more than romance in mind--she wants the inside story on Bill’s exotic assignments.

When she goes over his head and obtains permission to join his outfit on a sensitive mission in the Philippines, Bill is both angry and afraid for her. Will her presence endanger his team? When things go badly, only faith in God can give them hope for tomorrow, but even if they both make it, what’s the inside scoop on Bill and Claudia having a future together?

My Review:
As I read the final page and closed the cover, I shut my eyes and sighed. What a wonderful story. Although this is the third in the series, it's a novel that can be read and understood without having first read the other two. However, if you are fortunate enough to have read Frazier Island and Finding Marie, this volume will bring even more satisfaction.

The protagonist, Claudia Gillette, is an intelligent, strong-minded woman. She enjoys her life and her career--a globe-trotting journalist--even though it includes irritants like a nagging boss and a photographer who likes to live in the fast lane. She meets a special operations Naval officer and the sparks fly. But can love bloom with the wacky schedules these two jobs entail? It's a big world, but can they arrange to meet?

There's a touch of realism that is not often found in novels. No wonder. The author is a former news correspondent!

Bill White, the Naval officer is sent to the Philippines on a secret mission involving hostages, terrorists, and two governments. The non-stop action would make a terrific action film. Guys will also enjoy this one.

I highly recommend this book. If you like suspense, you will not be disappointed.
