What her mother doesn’t know is Poppy’s on assignment. Her mission? To help bankrupt a drug cartel. To do that, she must access encrypted account numbers, evade a drug lord with a grudge, dodge a Russian oligarch, and align herself with a man who looks like a Norse god. Oh, and there’s that plot—the one to launch a massive attack on the City of Lights.
If Poppy’s not careful, La Vie en Rose might just turn funereal black. (Summary via Goodreads)
I couldn't put Fields' Guide to Assassins by Julie Mulhern down !! I just LOVE Poppy !!! Here you have a "spoiled rich girl" whose mom just happens to be a famous actress but underneath it all, she (Poppy that is...) is anything but what everyone thinks she is.
And we get to hang out in Paris with Poppy and her mom !!! While her mom is there filming a movie, Poppy is there to meet a private banker and uncover secrets she doesn't even know that she is seeking. Poppy is trying to make the world a better place by bringing bad guys to justice, unfortunately not very many people know this and the ones that do don't believe that she can and are trying to keep her safe. Luckily for everyone concerned, Poppy is getting good at her job....or lucky, depends on who you ask.
While in Paris Poppy is assigned a bodyguard that looks like Thor....she confuses the two quite often which will have the reader laughing out loud. Poppy and Mark seem to work well together and it's a good thing because not only is the leader of a drug cartel still after her ( You have to read Fields' Guide to Abduction ) but it seems that half of Paris is as well.
Poppy and Mark leave a pile of dead men throughout Paris but Poppy will do whatever it takes when there are terrorist threats on landmarks in the area and one of them is where her mother is shooting her latest film. Even though her and her mother have a strained relationship, they come together when it counts !!!
I fell in love with the first book in the Poppy Fields Adventure series and this second one just added to the love !! I could not put it down, there was so much excitement and hidden gems of humor that had me tearing through the pages. I was slightly disappointed when I finished but knowing the third book is coming out soon, helped lessen the pain......
