Publisher's Write-Up

Absolutely shattered by her husband’s half-truths and too frequent absences, Lindsay Mayer felt like chucking it all; more so after finding the stinker in a New York hotel room with his lover.

When a distraught Lindsay turns to a childhood friend for advice, her friend offers her a job with the Justice Department and a chance at a new life. Lindsay accepts. Why not! She is in a mean mood; her husband has apparently abandoned her and she can't even divorce him if she can't find him. What’s to stay for?

Lindsay recreates herself, all part of her new and exciting life. When she is transferred to London in an exchange between the US Justice Department and MI5, Lindsay learns to speak with a very proper English accent and develops a talent for computer hacking and covert operations. Along with her new English accent, she has picked up the sophistication of London, changed her hair color from drab blonde to a rich auburn, lost considerable weight and wears contact lenses to disguised her eye color. All in all, her own mother wouldn’t recognize her with the changes she has made in her appearance.

Rating 9/10
Lindsay Mayer’s life is shattered when she discovers her professor husband Griffen is having an affair. Distraught, obviously abandoned and heartbroken, Lindsay finds salvation after she confesses her disillusionment and grief to her friend, Chloe.

Determined to take charge of her life, Lindsay agrees to try to put the entire sordid affair behind her and accepts employment in the American Justice Department. From that moment on, readers are well advised to make sure nothing will interrupt them from this wonderfully rendered romance/intrigue/and action tale filled with great characters, well thought out scenes and intense dialog.

Lindsay, who’s undergone a near complete transformation, with new hair colour, eyes, weight loss and wardrobe, has transformed herself into a splendid agent, one who is unexpectedly paired with Griffen, who is and always has been an undercover CIA agent. But the startled man can’t figure out why his new partner seems to despise him, or why he feels so drawn to her. Unbeknownst to Lindsay, Griffen believes his wife was killed in an auto accident five years prior, and is still grieving her loss.

Ah, mystery, seduction and steamy physical and verbal interaction between these two make for a thoroughly compelling read! Unfinished Business is a treat to the senses, and though Ms. Lucas-Taylor’s first novel, her potent and professional writing style defies description. Add Ms. Lucas-Taylor to the list of up and coming authors – she's definitely going to give today's popular author's a run for their money.
