Tasty Virtual Tour: From Indiana, With Love by Sandra Sookoo

From Indiana with Love
By: Sandra Sookoo
Released July 2014


Being embroiled in an FBI sting isn’t exactly conducive for book research or warm fuzzies—or is it?

Samantha Arnold, prep cook and struggling romance novelist, believes adventure is right around the corner. Trouble is, nothing exciting happens in the small town of Newburg, Indiana. When a routine trip to pick up chicken results in meeting a guy too well-dressed to be a farmer, she can’t help but hope things are about to turn.

Special Agent Patton Mitchell isn’t exactly enjoying his stint in the farming community. The property he’s using as a home base adjoins that of his mark, and it also connects him with meek and mild Samantha. Her questionable Internet search history has triggered a visit from the NSA, which means him, and he’s not above a little flirting to get his answers.

Suddenly, small town life explodes into a story right out of Sam’s imagination, with intrigue, guns and betrayal to boot. What she thinks of as a madcap caper is a fight for life or death in Mitchell’s book. Between dodging bullets, chasing a would-be terrorist and dealing with drop-in relatives, there might just be a shot at romance—if the bad guys don’t get them first.

My Review:

When I first saw that the title included Indiana, I wanted to read this book. I was born and raised in Indiana and have only lived away from that state for two years. Then I saw that it takes place in Newburg! I grew up 30 miles from Newburg. My husband lived in Newburg when we met. Yes, I really had to read this book!

I did not regret it, either. This book was engaging from the first chapter. I am not sure what I expected originally, but I really felt like it was more thriller than I had imagined it would be. There is enough romance to keep it interesting for romance lovers, but it isn't the main element to the story.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Sam and Mitchell from the start. Sam is a fun character and when you put her with Mitchell, who is pretty much her opposite, you just want to see them get together. I found their interactions fun and realistic.

I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a thriller/romance type story. I had never read any of Sandra Sookoo's books, but plan to read more now that I devoured this one. The characters were realistic, the story line was intriguing, and the writing flowed smoothly. I look forward to the next book in this series!
