The Tempering Agent By Victoria Pitts Caine

The Tempering Agent By Victoria Pitts Caine

Dr. Priscilla Hackling finds herself thrown back into the murder investigation of her fiancé, Trey Whittington. While she was a suspect three years ago, she’s now working with the police to find the murderer, Egyptian artifact trafficker, Zarka El-Din. During a sting operation in Siwa, she and Agent Donnie Barnes are drawn to each other but Priscilla, overcome by personal ghosts from her past, decides a relationship isn’t possible. Priscilla realizes she’s the bait in the ruse and uncovers others involved with El-Din. Will she and Donnie reconcile and unravel the reason behind Trey’s death before El-Din kills her, too?

My Review:

I’ve always been a fan of archology and mystery and treasure so when I got the chance to readThe Tempering Agent, I immediately took it. I enjoyed reading this book. It’s fun to learn new thingsabout archology.   I thought the characters were fun to get to know. Some I liked better then others. They were pretty believable. I did feel like the relationship at the beginning between Priscilla and Donnie move faster then what I would expect in real life. Victoria Pitts Caine weaves lessons of truth,  forgiveness and hope throughout  this story. I like how the character’s learn and grow throughout this story.  I look forward to reading more stories about Priscilla and Donnie.

I recommend this book to my family and friends
I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest review.
