Review: Fatal Code by Natalie Walters



In 1964, a group of scientists called the Los Alamos Five came close to finishing a nuclear energy project for the United States government when they were abruptly disbanded. Now the granddaughter of one of those scientists, aerospace engineer Elinor Mitchell, discovers that she has highly sensitive information on the project in her possession--and a target on her back.

SNAP agent and former Navy cryptologist Kekoa Young is tasked with monitoring Elinor. This is both convenient since she's his neighbor in Washington, DC, and decidedly inconvenient because . . . well, he kind of likes her.

As Elinor follows the clues her grandfather left behind to a top-secret nuclear project, Kekoa has no choice but to step in. And with danger closing in on all sides, Elinor will have to trust the man who has been spying on her to ensure her discoveries stay out of enemy hands--and she stays alive.

My Thoughts:

Elinor's work in science is pretty much all that is to her life right now. She has just suffered the death of her grandfather, whom she loved very much, and knows that only work will help keep her mind occupied. However, there are some who have much more notorious plans for Elinor, and she has no clue what is in store for her.

Kekoa Young is Elinor's neighbor and works for the SNAP Agency as a cryptographer. He is a pretty smart Hawaiian and the author's description was really giving off some major actor Mamoa vibes. Anyway, he has been tasked with keeping an eye on Elinor as she is the prime suspect in an international theft of business property secrets. But Kekoa doesn't think she is guilty though all the signs point to her. Kekoa may have his heart on the line as well, but he is determined to prove that she is innocent.

In the meantime, Elinor is just grateful her hunky neighbor is always around when she needs him the most. And especially when certain secrets come to life. This was a very good romantic suspense with just enough action to keep me turning the pages long into the night. With every page the tension mounted, along with the strong romantic heroic vibes that Kekoa, unintentionally, kept shooting out to Elinor. They had quite a ride and journey to travel and I enjoyed reading every minute of it.

I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
