This is the final book in the Witness Protection continuity series. Each book is written by a different author, but with a common theme and some common characters in each book. These books are focused on uncovering an illegal baby smuggling ring and can be read separately but truly flow when read in order. That being said, I own all of the books in the series, but have had to read them out of order! I still have a couple that I need to read and review. I will hopefully be getting to those within the next couple of months. I skipped to this last book, Undercover Marriage, because I needed to read a book for my Goodreads Book Scattergories game that had a main female character with the letter “S”. Serena Summers fit that category nicely – one point for each name. But now, on to my review:
I enjoyed Undercover Marriage. Serena and Josh are likeable characters who feel a lot of strain between them, because Serena blames Josh for the death of her brother, Daniel. Now, Serena and Josh are partners in the U.S. Marshalls and must go undercover as a married couple. I was a little frustrated with Serena early in the book being so unwilling to forgive Josh for so long, but I do recognize that it was necessary in order to make her “wake up” to the reality that God does not want her to be unforgiving toward others. Likewise, Josh has to grow in his understanding of God through this book and learn to let go of the guilt he feels. Watching these two begin to realize that they have feelings for each other, while pretending to be married, was fun. There was a lot of good tension between these two characters. Undercover Marriage was a nice story and tied up the series well.
