The Family DuMont by Austin Wright and Adam Knox

For hundreds of years they have been the secret of kings and the rich and powerful. No other organization has had a greater impact on history through the lives they've saved and the lives they've taken. They are an extraordinary family whose quiet interventions in the world's affairs has had important ramifications for centuries. They are not limited by boundaries, jurisdiction or sanction. To those able to afford their services they are a highly sought after source of intelligence and, if necessary, a weapon. They are killers with a conscience, tasked by governments and the elite to keep balance in the world. They are the DuMonts. 

Claire DuMont has been estranged from the family for the last five years, surviving on her own as an independent contractor. On Tuesday, she arrives in Dallas on an assignment. During her one night in town she unexpectedly falls in love with an ordinary man who is willing to do something very surprising to catch her attention. That same day her brother Julian pilots a dilapidated boat into Galveston harbor. As he attempts to carry out his own mission at a seedy waterfront bar he meets a beautiful waitress with secrets of her own. Meanwhile, their cousin Tait is attempting to finally become a family field agent by hunting down a well-protected criminal. 

The events of this day will begin an explosive chain reaction that will put in jeopardy the fate of fifteen-year-old Abbey, the DuMonts' greatest hope for the future, who is about to begin her own harrowing journey that will lead her to the startling truth about the family. 

This book is not from a genre that I usually read but The Family DuMont is a welcomed surprise. The readers are introduced to the DuMont family - a family of assassins working behind the scenes to make the world a better place.

The book was well-written, fast paced, full of action and surprises which I really liked. The main characters - mostly members of the DuMont family, were awesome and interesting. . My favorite was definitely Claire DuMont. There were also other characters that have been introduced but have not yet been given the spotlight. The POV switch was really confusing at first, but you'll get used to it later on.

I didn't quite like the ending as I found it to be quite lacking, but other than that I have no other complaints.

Overall, I really enjoyed this action-packed novel. Recommended for action/adventure fans, you would not be able to put this book down once you start reading it!

The Family DuMont is the first book in the series. Can't wait to read the sequel!

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making. Pretty soon you will be amazed on the intricate storyline balanced well with the main characters developing romance.  Fool Me Once is definitely a Catherine Bybee book.  The first in her new series, First Wives,  Fool Me Once is also a spinoff from her popular Weekday Bride series.  And yet again, Ms. Bybee delivers in her great characters, well thought out plot and melding her two series together without one overpowering the other.
The story starts out as the head of Alliance and their legal go to person, Lori try to help one of their client who unexpectedly lost her husband.  To get her away …
