Secrets of an Aztec Temple (An Isabella Mumphrey Adventure) by Paty Jager
The second Isabella Mumphrey Adventure starts off strong and does not let you down. It is an adventure through the tunnels of Mexico city. It tells a little about the Aztec, Mexico past, drug dealers, greed, romance and has a couple of sex scenes that I skipped over.
Isabella still has her trusty vest with all her emergency supplies that does save the day. Isabella first case for working for her father is too figure out how Aztec artifacts are stolen from a museum after they were cataloged. She is smart, knows self defence and in love.
Tino Constantine is still undercover DEA trying to catch and bring down the drug dealers who killed his family. After six months working for Graza he is close to being able to shut him down. Then Isabella walks into his compound.
Tino risks his assignment to be with Isabella and to make sure she is safe.
Isabella and Tino risk a lot to keep each safe. Power and greed makes it hard to trust others.
I did not put the book down till I finished reading it. I like Isabella and Tino and would love to see more of them in the future.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley.
