Sinossi

Not all conspiracies are global; some are well-hidden in small towns with perfect facades...
Experience Jade Snow's humble beginnings as a sexy international super-sleuth in "Small Town USA," before she turns spy extraordinaire in GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure)!
Jade Snow, international journalist who braved Iraq and Afghanistan, arrives to the idyllic Berkshires, MA. But Stepford is the perfect town where nothing is what it seems. The idea is for Jade to get her rest before the arrival of the baby and while her husband is on a dangerous assignment to Somalia. However as usual, Jade finds a life-threatening adventure where no one else would look. She must get to the bottom of the unlikely local conspiracy, free up a rape victim from her terrified silence and rehabilitate the wronged man. All this, while managing to stay sane and alive. Camouflaged as a cozy mystery, including the incumbent knitting club and a cool super-sleuth cat, Stepford USA digs much deeper, including the ironic look at a typical American small town setup, complete with kindly, yet utterly clueless local knitting ladies, and a stinging satire encouraging the reader to acknowledge the corruption and failures of the American justice system.
Beautiful setting, a wisp of romance, mystical element + humor included at no extra charge. For readers 14 through adult. Includes Accidental Spy Sampler: excerpt from GOLD TRAIN + excerpt from future DRAGON GATE, Accidental Spy Asia Adventure
Note: While each book in the Accidental Spy Adventure Series stands on each own, it is advisable to read them sequentially to fully appreciate plot twists and character development.

L'autore

Living her life in the fast lane, Lada Ray, M.A., always wanted to write cool stories, which she'd been imagining in her head ever since she can remember. Instead, she listened to her well-meaning parents and started her life in a more traditional way (for her, that is). Born in Russia, she is a world traveler, linguist, financial consultant, Feng Shui Master, shaman, futurist, and metaphysics/spirituality researcher. Lada holds a Master's Degree in comparative linguistics (graduated summa cum laude,) is fluent in several languages and has traveled to over twenty six countries. She had worked in Havana, Cuba as an interpreter for the Russian educational exchange delegations, including a couple of interviews with the man himself - Fidel Castro. Later, she worked as financial consultant for AIG and Smith Barney/Citigroup. She studied Feng Shui in Hong Kong and Malaysia, and received her Feng Shui Master Practitioner's certification from the famed Asian author, Lilian Too. A few years ago, she finally got her ultimate wish, and now she imagines her stories full-time in the bustling New York City and beautifully serene Catskill Mountains, NY, where she lives with her family and calico cat. Lada Ray is the author of the Accidental Spy Adventure Series, including the Amazon & Kindle bestseller, GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure), mystery/thriller STEPFORD USA (Accidental Spy Small Town Adventure), and GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Iraq Prequel). She is the creator of the new, top-rated metaphysical YA fantasy/thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER, and the EARTH KEEPERS CHRONICLES: ORIGINS (Catharsis, Lemurian Crystal, Atlantis).

5.0 su 5 stelle Compelling until the very end 30 settembre 2012
Di Mardi - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Jade Snow is an investigative journalist who has braved the hardships of such places as Afghanistan. When a `white knight' leaps to save her, she quickly falls in love and gets pregnant. But this new development is about to change Jade forever. When her husband insists on moving her to the safety and isolation of Stepford, Jade characteristically finds a story to investigate.

But Jade is being watched... and the mysterious web begins to be woven - a clever simile made through Jade's new involvement with the knitting club of Stepford.

On discovering a horrific crime that has happened many years ago, Jade smells a rat: There are too many suspicious angles. Adding the fact that the victim is still alive but unable to converse, intrigue and mystique build.

This is a very enjoyable book with terrific characters and a clever storyline that conjurs truths from the imbedded lies and deceit of the higher echelons of Stepford. In a whirlwind of well crafted storytelling we experience Jade's paranormal psychic visions and even venture into a virtual reality laboratory to discover that all is not as it seems.

This novel makes clever observations on morality, class and perception with wonderful twists and turns that will surprise and intrigue.

A purposeful puzzle, compelling until the very end.

Looking forward to reading Lada Ray's other novels.

5.0 su 5 stelle Sleepy, Uneventful, Small Town Paradise...NOT! 23 luglio 2012
Di BrendaJane - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I enjoyed solving this mystery, though we knew who the guilty ones were early on, it was the finding of the proof, uncovering the details and getting the story straight that was the heart of this book. I did like the small town warmth and the friendly people but on the flip side, it was their naivete and face-value belief in people that gave the "bad guys" free reign as they went unpunished for their crime, sending to prison an innocent man, as well as keeping an innocent woman locked in the prison of her mind. I would have liked to have heard the outcome of the victim in new surroundings, the prognosis was good but we didn't know how that turned out. I like this author; I'm now starting to read the next book in the series, I'll get back to you on that.

This a good read, I found the character of Jade Snow to be interesting and fun to read about. I did find that I knew who the suspects for the crime were within the first 1/4 of the novel, but it was interesting to see how it played out, and how Ray wrapped the story up. The subject matter of the book was graphically described multiple times and fully re-hashed down to the tiny details. I assume this is typical in sleuthing novels. I haven't read many modern sleuthing stories, but this one reminded me of Sherlock Holmes. It especially reminded me of the relationship between Holmes and Watson because of the relationship of Jade and her best friend. I did find, as other reviewers have stated on GoodReads, several typos and syntax errors. There were several parts where the novel went from past tense into present tense and back to past tense. I found this made it so I had to re-read the paragraph more than once to clarify what had happened. This did detract from the story for me, yet it still held me in until the last page and I found the overall writing good. I look forward to seeing more from this author.
