The Loving Daylights
I’m familiar with Lynsay Sands’ paranormal romance. She’s written more than a dozen books on the Argeneaus, a family of vampires. Her recent story, The Loving Daylights, is very different from her usual fare, but has her familiar writing style. Any Sands fan will love her new romance with a dominant dose of mystery and thriller.
Sands’ newest heroine, Jane Spyrus, is a gawky, awkward technology geek. She designs unusual tools for a spy syndicate, B.L.I.S.S. When Jane’s neighbor, Edie, goes missing, Jane is able to track her through her innovative tampon tracker to a neighborhood where a bunch of unsavory characters are experimenting with mind control on the population. Jane teams up with Edie’s brother, Abel, to find and apprehend the culprits.
Sands’ signature humor makes The Loving Daylights enjoyable. Jane’s funny inventions, such as her truth serum perfume and shrinking prophylactic constraints, save the day and make for some comedic scenes. Jane and Abel are highly compatible, and their banter helps to lighten what would otherwise be a serious life-or-death thriller story. If you enjoy Sands’ other works, you’ll enjoy The Loving Daylights for sure.
