Lucy Monroe, Close Quarters

Close Quarters
Series: Goddard Project,
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There’s a very tenuous thread connecting this story to The Goddard Project as it mostly involves men from a mercenary group named Atrati which seems to specialize in assassinations. Oh yeah, besides the GP guy they send on the mission—we get a two-fer in this romance—the lead assassin turns out to be Elle’s brother and the target’s brother-in-law.

In this case, Tanya is suspected of passing military secrets to the bad guys in her position as a medic in an African medical outpost. An Army colonel who screwed up wants Tanya taken out to CYA…but the evidence appears circumstantial. The doctor in charge, Fleur, comes under suspicion as well.

The events taking place in Africa took me back to my own two years there—kudos to the real people who do volunteer to help there.

Very enjoyable characters and I think Monroe is setting up for another series based on the Atrati guys
