Wiser than Serpents by Susan May Warren
One of my favorite books of all time is In Sheep’s Clothing, the first book in Susan May Warren’s Mission: Russia series. The newest book in the series, Wiser than Serpents, is another great page-turning, suspenseful romance. And as an added bonus, a portion of the proceeds for this book will go to International Justice Mission, an organization of lawyers, criminal investigators, social workers and volunteers who rescue victims caught in the global slave trade that goes on right under our noses.
Now for my review.
Yanna Andrevka goes undercover to try to save her sister, who was kidnapped by ruthless slave traffickers. And who comes to rescue her? None other than David Curtiss, the American Delta Force captain she’s been secretly in love with since their college days together in Russia. But now they’re both in trouble, because the kingpin of this human slavery ring, known as the Serpent, knows who they are and has an uncanny way of finding where they are. And he wants them dead.
Yanna and David are on the run and fighting their long-standing attraction to each other. But David must resist the urge to show Yanna how he feels about her, because she’s not a Christian and isn’t even open to discussing it. And Yanna has been hurt so many times, she’s not sure if even David—if he cared about her—would be enough to heal her brokenness.
And if you’re a fan of Vicktor and Gracie like I am—I admit it, I was giddily excited when I saw that there was a story thread involving my two favorite characters from In Sheep’s Clothing!—then you will get a glimpse of their continuing saga, as they—hopefully—inch their way toward matrimony. Oh, how I wanted them to run off to Vegas! But I don't want to give anything away.
I highly recommend this deliciously satisfying book, the third in the Mission: Russia series. Can’t wait for the next one!
