A Thin Disguise by Catherine Bybee is now live!
On a fateful night in Las Vegas, FBI agent Leo Grant is working on a critical detail in a high-profile child prostitution trial when a beautiful woman jumps into the path of a bullet meant for him. Little does Leo know that the woman is Olivia, an ex-assassin who is seeking redemption one good deed at a time.
One minute, Olivia is lunging in front of Leo on the Vegas Strip. The next, she’s waking up in the hospital in a haze of pain with no memory of her past, her enemies, or even her own name.
With Olivia suffering from memory loss and completely unaware of the danger she is in, it’s up to Leo and Neil MacBain’s team of operatives to keep her safe. With Olivia and Leo both unaware of her past crimes, the two have little reason to avoid their growing attraction. Slowly her past seeps in through the cracks as she struggles to find the answers of who she is. When the veil is lifted and her dark past is staring her down, Olivia must turn her back on Leo and the love she can never allow herself to have, and race to find her would-be killer.

NICUnurse’s Review of A Thin Disguise by Catherine Bybee
A Thin Disguise is the second book in the all-new Richter series by Catherine Bybee. I’m an avid romantic suspense lover and have been for many years. I really enjoyed Changing the Rules (book 1 of the series), so I jumped into this one with high expectations. I was not disappointed. I actually enjoyed it a little more than the first book in the series.
Quick note: this can be read as an absolute standalone book. With that said, being a series lover, I always recommend reading them in order to enhance the experience. There’s plenty of backstory in this book to keep you up to speed on who’s who and what’s previously happened without being an information dump. But if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, do yourself a huge favor and pick up both books and read them in the correct order.
Now, I’m a characters girl, so if I can’t connect with the main characters, I will generally give up on a story. I loved Leo in book 1 and felt bad that he seemed so lonely, so I was a bit giddy to find out he did get his own story. Leo is a straight-laced, really great guy. One of the truly good ones. So Olivia being who she was challenged him to think outside the box. But it was awesome to see him go a bit rogue. I also love a redeemed antihero, and Olivia fits that to a T. Their chemistry was sizzling, too. The action was fast-paced in the beginning, slowed a bit in the middle, then really picked up at the end.
My only complaint is that it still feels like I’m not quite getting the connection between some of the secondary characters. I’m not sure if that means there’s some reveal planned for future books or I haven’t found it yet in previous books. Regardless, this book was just the kind of story this romantic suspense junkie desires: well-paced action, great characters, and mystery and suspense that weren’t too simple that I figured out the who and the why before the climax.
NICUnurse’s Rating: I give A Thin Disguise by Catherine Bybee 5 out of 5 propellers!
