AGENTS IN OLD LACE by TRISTI PINKSTON

Shannon Tanner has it all a perfect family, a perfect job, and a perfect boyfriend. Or so she thinks. What Shannon doesn't know is that her boyfriend, Mark, is stealing money from her father and making millions doing it. When Shannon learns Mark's secret, he turns on her, and Shannon's life abruptly goes from perfect to perilous.

In an effort to protect Shannon, the FBI assigns their only female agent to go undercover as her personal bodyguard. But when the agent is injured the day before the assignment, they turn to the next best thing: their top agent, Rick Holden in a dress.
Life seems safe again for Shannon with Rick by her side and Mark apparently gone for good. Then Shannon gets word that her best friend has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that Mark isn't going to stop any time soon. Shannon realizes the only way to save herself and her friend and stop Mark once and for all is by sending Rick, her only source of protection, away. Can Rick save Shannon before it's too late?
Agents in Old Lace is Tristi Pinkston's first Romantic Suspense Novel to be published. She is best known for her historical fiction.
This was a fun book. I had a hard time putting it down. I especially love agent Rick/ Aunt Anita. He really was a good sport. I would have felt safe with him too.
Shannon showed real courage in facing the dangerous situation she found herself in and handled Aunt Anita living in her apartment with humor.
I loved the interaction with the "boys" hidden next door, watching and listening to her apartment.
My only frustration was that they didn't figure out why the Dad was sick and not getting any better. But that was one of the mysteries in the story.
I would recommend Agents In Old Lace to everyone. It is a fun book & a quick read.
