Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

‘He was about six feet tall, slim and fit. The eyes in the lean, slightly tanned face were a very clear grey-blue and as they observed the men they were cold and watchful. His good looks had a dangerous, almost cruel quality that had frightened me. But now I knew he could smile, I thought his face exciting, in a way no face had ever excited me before …’

Vivienne Michel is in trouble. Trying to escape her tangled past, she has run away to the American backwoods, winding up at the Dreamy Pines Motor Court. A far cry from the privileged world she was born to, the motel is also the destination of two hardened killers—the perverse Sol Horror and the deadly Sluggsy Morant. When a coolly charismatic Englishman turns up, Viv, in terrible danger, is not just hopeful, but fascinated. Because he is James Bond, 007; the man she hopes will save her, the spy she hopes will love her …

Mana recenzija/My review

Nice and surprising change of POV and narrator, where Bond was almost just a side character. Bond was his usual self and only few emotions from.

In the beginning we have introduction about Vivienne Michel – her backstory – and only after a while something starts to happen. Luckily for Vivienne by mere coincidence James Bond shows up to rescue.

In general I liked her but there were few minuses. One of which was Vivienne’s thinking about herself as lesser than men and in case of men she haven’t got the best experience (saying it lightly).

Villains were not great but also not horrible (neutral) for their role, especially Slusgy.

All in all :D a good change in the series and hopefully it continues or at least gets repeated.
