Beth has been trying very hard to live a normal life for
the past year. She has been working as a museum curator.
Beth has enjoyed making friends and even gone out on a
with a normal but boring man.
Yet every time she enters her home she checks to ensure no
one has entered, that she is safe. So when her brother
calls and informs her that someone has taken a hit out on
her life she is not shocked. She is upset that her life of
retirement from being as assassin may be coming to an end.
When she fears her neighbor may be harmed by someone
searching for her she runs to his rescue and brings him
injured to her home. Realizing he is someone from her past
an MI6 agent she accepts his help in hiding from the
assassins. Now Vick, MI6 agent, her brothers and her must
try to stop the hit on her and discover what and who the
threat really is. Beth's life comes very close to ending
and those she trusts the most may betray her the most.
BLAMED has characters that you can't help but love. Beth's
family runs a company that helps secure the world for
America and as Beth says bleeds red, white and blue. It's
an exciting bunch of people who work together in wonderful
ways. Beth and Vick have the most twisted romantic story
that steals it your heart.
BLAMED is the first in the
series by Edie Harris and it looks there are more to come.
I just hope the author isn't doing what I think she's
with Beth's brother, without giving up a possible spoiler
for the next book let me just say he should shoot her.

Born into a long line of spies, sanctioned killers and
covert weapons developers, Beth Faraday carried out her
first hit-for-hire when she was still a teenager.
That part of her life—the American spy royalty part—ended
one year ago, with a job gone wrong in Afghanistan. The
collateral damage she caused with a single shot was
unfathomable and, for Beth, unforgivable. She's worked
to build a new life for herself, far away from the family
But someone, somewhere, hasn't forgotten what Beth did in
Kabul. And they want revenge.
As the Faraday clan bands together to defend Beth and
protect their legacy, Beth is forced to flee her new home
with the unlikeliest of allies-MI6 agent Raleigh Vick, the
only man she's ever loved. And the one she thought she'd
killed in the desert.
