Live and Let Love by Gina Robinson

Posted Dec 4 2012, 5:35 am in , , , ,


The mom has been hogging all the electronics around here, but she stepped out for a minute, so I’ll make this quick. I’m putting an iPad on my Christmas list, but I’m not holding my sweet doggie breath. (Well, my breath will probably be sweet by then because the only thing I ever get in my stocking is biscuits to clean my teeth. Think they’re trying to tell me something? ) 

Today I’m reviewing a book called Live and Let Love by Gina Robinson. It comes out on December 24th, the perfect gift for you crazy humans who shop at the last minute.  It’s a good book, especially because it has a cute dog named Spookie in it. (Spookie’s hot stuff and lives in a house with a candy store attached. It doesn’t get much sweeter than that!)

So, anyway, the hero is a spy named Jack who was in a nasty explosion and everyone, including his wife, Willow, thinks he’s dead. He needs to let everyone keep thinking that so he can fulfill his mission.

When a bad guy befriends Willow, Jack needs to protect her without blowing his cover. Because his face was badly disfigured in his accident, he has a new and improved one and he poses as a distant Italian cousin of Willow’s neighbor. He knows he’ll have to dig deep to stay detached, but he can’t help but enjoy his wife’s company again—even if only for a short while until he can take the bad guy out.

Now I’ll bet you’re thinking what I was thinking. Jack could probably fool a mere human, but never a dog, right? Well, Spookie may get the best treats ever, but she doesn’t have an iPad with the ‘dog to english’ app to borrow like I do, so she can’t alert Willow that it’s really her old alpha-human disguised as an Italian male model, so the charade ensues.

But Willow is one of those smart breeds, and she can’t help but wonder why this new guy reminds her so much of Jack, so she starts her own investigation. She’ll have to snoop into his background, trip him up, but if that doesn’t work, she’ll use her secret weapon–she’ll seduce him. Then she’ll know for sure. But Jack is a crafty spy, so she has her work cut out for her.

This book is part of the Agent-Ex series and has all the intrigue, explosions, and near death thrills as the other books, along with the usual heartwarming humor, romance and fun. It’s ten times better than my favorite slobbery tennis ball.  Enjoy!

It gets 5 out of 5 paws!

      Thanks for stopping by, Kari. Sorry if you had trouble leaving a message earlier,we had some technical difficulties. I may have slobbered on mom’s keyboard and messed things up.

  2. Susie R says:

    I loved the first 2 books in this series andI am so looking forward to this book. I already told my husband to get it for me as a Christmas gift so even if he waits until the last minute he can load it on to my Kindle even after the stores have closed!

    I loved the first 2 books in this series and am so looking forward to this book. I already told my husband to get it for me for Christmas so even is he waits until the last minute he can still load it on to my Kindle even after all of the stores are closed on Christmas Eve!

      Hi Susie R!
      Thanks for stopping by today. Smart to tell the hubs what you want for Christmas. So much better than getting the same old doggie treats in your stocking year after year…..

    Hey there Beau, it’s great you’re taking over some of your mom’s work. Boy I wish I could get some of these lazy beasts to help out,all they want to do is clean the counters when I’m trying to fix dinner, and not in a nice way!
    If you don’t get an iPad maybe you’ll get a keyboard cover so you can drool to your puppy heart’s content.

    Great idea about the cover, Mona!! Thanks for stopping by! I know you’re a doggie judge when you’re not writing books. What will it take to bribe you for a ‘Best in show’ for me? ;0)

  6. robena grant says:

    Oh, this sounds like it’s right up my alley. Thanks Tammy, Beau and of course, Gina. Live and Let Love has now been added to my list. I need to stockpile some books before leaving to (put your fingers in your ears Beau) catsit for a week. The things you do for your kids. : )

    • BeauBaumann says:

      Oh,no Robena. I researched you and The mom says you’re fun to sit by the pool with and have cocktails in LA, but really? Catsit! This can not be a fun place to visit. But I hope your stay will be made tolerable by enjoying Gina’s book as much as I did!!

  7. Barrett says:

    Nice job, nothing “underwhelming” about this clever, concise review. (Get the pooch the iPad, he might turn out more bloggies …

  8. BeauBaumann says:

    Thanks Barrrett who writes awesome books! All the votes for the iPad for the dog are appreciated!!

  9. Monique says:

    Sounds like fun! Any book with a dog in it is a sure read for me;-)

  10. Kay Hudson says:

    That certainly sounds like a fun read, Beau. And I enjoyed your review. I have a housemate of the feline persuasion who loves to steal my pens, but I haven’t seen her do anything constructive with them. Do you think you could teach her to write my blog for me?

    • BeauBaumann says:

      Well it IS just a cat, but okay. I could try. iPad’s make stuff pretty darned easy, even for the feline types. ;0) Thanks for stopping by Miz Kay!!

  11. Karen says:

    It sounds like you have great taste (doggie breath or not).
    This story sounds fun, flirty, and sexy. I’m going to add it to my Santa list.

    Thanks for the tip.

    • BeauBaumann says:

      Karen, the mom said you do fun, flirty and sexy well yourself, so I hope you enjoy!! And I hope santa brings you all the things on your list. (But if you get an extra iPad, could you mail it my way?? ;0)

  12. A.J. Larrieu says:

    Great review, Beau! I love the premise of this book. Unique! And I’m a sucker for spies…I’ll definitely check it out!

  13. BeauBaumann says:

    Thanks, A.J. Hope you enjoy this book as much as I have. But,here’s the real question. Do you have a dog??

  14. Pintip says:

    Thanks for the review, Beau, sounds like a really fun book! It’s going straight onto my TBR pile! I hope you get that iPad for Christmas! Happy Holidays!

  15. Gabi Stevens says:

    Sounds like a fun book. And Gina is a wonderful individual as well. No wonder she writes dogs well, Beau.

  16. Shelly C. Alexander says:

    I’m so glad Beau reviewed this book. I love Gina Robinson and can’t wait to read this new release.

    Thanks Beau!

    (And yes, I have 3 dogs: 2 miniature schnauzers, which are going to the groomer today and a rather hefty English Bulldog.)

    • BeauBaumann says:

      Sorry for the trip to the groomer! It’s like going to the dentist for humans, right? But it’s a necessary evil…. thanks for stopping by Shelly!

  17. Kari Bovee says:

    Nice review Beau!I have one of Gina’s books and it’s a fun read. Christmas wishes to you, Tammy and Gina!

    • BeauBaumann says:

      Christmas wishes right back at ya Kari!! I know you have cats, but you’re still good people anyway. ;0) Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Louise B says:

    What a fun sounding story! I wish it wasn’t coming out on Christmas Eve. I want it out now. I’ve enjoyed the first tow, and this one sounds like it’s in the same vein.

  19. Shea Berkley says:

    I love spy novels, Gina, and knowing you, I have no doubt this will be a fun read! I can’t imagine people not wanting it for Christmas. I’m adding it for sure.

  20. BeauBaumann says:

    Hi Shea,

    How’s that potty training going for the grandkid and the puppy? Must be really fun at your house doing both at once! Good luck!!

  21. Helen Pilz says:

    Live and Let Love sounds like a fun and intriguing novel! Thanks for the review, Beau! Glad you were able to get your paws back on the keyboards.

    • BeauBaumann says:

      Thanks Helen! Me too, for a minute there I thought I was going to be sent to my house for good. I’ve promised to be more careful with my paws in the future (The drool I can’t seem to help, but I’m working on it!)
