My Review of Wasp by Fiona Quinn

*☆(¸.•Wasp by Fiona Quinn (see blurb HERE)

I am just blown away by this book. Suspense/crime/thriller isn't my usual genre of read and if I do read this I usually insist in having a good dollop of romance in there. On first inspection there seems to be very little to nil romance in this fast paced, action-packed tale, but actually it has the most wonderful, romantic love story flowing through it's bones and underpinning the entire thing.

I have to say that it took me a chapter or two to get into the author's style of writing. It was well worth that little bit of effort because once the plot kicked off it had me gripped and the time flew by whilst reading this.

Zoe is a quirky science genius, not that Gage knows that just yet. She is working on something big but, as with a lot of inventions/discoveries, what was meant to be helpful can often be turned into a deadly weapon. In this amazing story we have good guys, bad guys, innocent bystanders and red herrings but just who is who? The plot moves along swiftly and smoothly so that you are carried along with it, rather than struggling to keep up. Ms Quinn managed to keep the tension and suspense going, without becoming boring, repetitive or cliched. From start to finish you need to be paying attention, there is just so much going on (in a good way - no florid overdone descriptions, no unnecessary dialogue and no filling time here).

Zoe is a finely crafted character and had met her ideal man in Gage, not that either have acknowledged that fact. They are both very independent characters who don't want to have to change or become responsible for the other - it sounds cold but when you reach the scene where Gage explains to Zoe why she is like an orchid your heart will melt and you will truly understand the depth of their relationship. Gage, a big tough Marine Raider has the soul of a poet. He appreciates and understands Zoe in a way that we would all love to have.

This without a shadow of a doubt is a solid 5 star book based on the quality of writing (and editing which was excellent), the plot, and the characters. Fiona Quinn is definitely going on my 'read more by this author' list.
