Scot 'Scat' Delaney is a world famous jazz singer.
He has ample opportunity to stray and his girlfriend, Alice, needs to know she can trust him.
Introducing Florence Love, private investigator.
Florence has just ten days to entrap an A-lister. Whilst sticking to her cardinal rule:
ONE KISS, WITH TONGUES, FIVE SECONDS - CASE CLOSED.
A master of body language, evolutionary science and nifty disguises, her approach is unconventional, her success rate excellent. But targets are rarely as beautiful as Scat. Never fall for the target.
THAT IS VERY BAD FORM INDEED.
So The Last Honeytrap started off like a James Bond movie, a little dalliance, some entrapment before the main event and it sure left me craving more.
I loved that it was more than being about the entrapment of a popstar. And that there was a story regarding Florence’s mum Bambi and her mysterious disappearance – more details are required please.
In the middle I did feel that the story got a little slow, a little boring and then bam stuff begins to happen really really fast and every little thing that I had grumpily thought before is forgiven. I obviously can’t tell you what occurs because that, dear reader, would be spoilers!
Also there were a lot of terms in this book, covering both Medical and Anatomical subjects that left me feel a bit stupid as I wasn’t sure what it meant and actually had to go google it…
But I did like how Entrapment tips peppered the story, allowing for more humorous moments. I liked that Florence grew on me as a character as I got to understand who she is and what she is about, and I certainly cannot wait for more from her.
I loved how endearing the other character’s were – especially Michael, who I can’t help but think of having sad puppy eyes all the time 🙂
The Last Honeytrap was a thoroughly entertaining read, and it was quite sad when it was over. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
