|Jenny & Doug in Algeciras|
This is the sequel to Assignment ~ NOLA which is the sequel to Assignment ~ Love. Both of these forerunners to Deep Water are about Jennifer Lee Stewart who was and always has been a writer. Her work began as a reporter for the local newspaper during college and afterward, and after she married and became pregnant in Baton Rouge, she began writing for API as a freelance writer. She branched into Romance Novels for steadier income until the children grew up. Her first husband was Kenneth Olson, an architect who after 25 years of marriage to Jenny takes a mistress in his assistant. Jenny catches them in flagrante delicto in her and Ken’s bed and realizes she and Ken haven’t enough left between them as a couple since their last child left the nest, to try to repair their marriage. After a quick divorce, Jenny moves to a smaller home next door to a hunk who immediately is attracted to her as well. This hunky neighbor, Douglas Campbell Nelson, who shares with her that his credentials include being a CPA for the government, finds he must warn her on her first night in her new home that their neighbors could be a danger to her. Before their second date is over they both receive phone calls from their bosses and are assigned immediately to Mexico in pursuit of one the most corrupt cartels….the Los Endekas (in this novel Los Zetas) who have just buried innocent tourists and locals in Tamaulipas, Mexico after stealing their money, jewelry and raping them. Their assignments pair them (Jenny as a free-lance writer for API and Doug as an FBI Agent) from the beginning on their flight to Mexico where Jenny figures out that Doug is more than a CPA and their futures take on an exciting and romantic twist while pursuing the drug runners along the Gulf Coast.
In Assignment ~ NOLA Jenny and Doug are now married and Doug is asked to assist an old Marine buddy/ex FBI Agent/Friend who is attempting to determine if the Football Bounty problem is true or not midst the Saints Football Team in New Orleans. Doug takes a Leave of Absence from the FBI in order to help his buddy and Jenny accompanies him in order to make his cover as Recruiter and his Wife seem more kosher as undercover work dictates. He and Jenny soon find the mafia is involved and the FBI decides they want them both representing the FBI in order to keep better tabs on the mafia and its’ involvement in the Bounty situation. Great food, a kidnap, a 300 year old River Plantation with a ghost which takes over Jenny at every opportunity and fantastic sex between the newlyweds keeps Assignment ~ NOLA humming along until the surprising end.
Now Doug and Jenny are being asked by the FBI to follow up on their OP-Mission Interception found in Assignment ~ Love with a new mission in Algeciras, Spain…….on AMAZON under Kathleen Boston McCune
