Original Sin: a Sally Sin Adventure by Beth McMullen

I am a fan of Janet Evanovich and have been looking for another author that is as fun to read.  While Sally Sin is no Stephanie Plum, she does get into crazy adventures.
Earlier in her life Sally was an agent for the USWMD.  Now called Lucy, she is happily married with a three year old son.  Both husband and son know nothing about her espionage years.  Her life gets very complicated when the head of USWMD wants her to help capture a bad guy.  Blackford is an agent turned bad and he has crossed paths with Sally before.  He is supposed to be dead but Sally finds out soon he is all too alive. 
McMullen does a great job of combining the currect action with reflections back to Sally's agent days.  And there is a good deal of humor, too.  People who might find Evanovich a little too risque wil be happy with Sally Sin.  I hope this is just the first of a long running series.
This novel does not release until July 12, 2011, so mark your calendar.  I read an advanced reading copy in an egalley form provided by the publisher, Hyperion, for the purpose of this review.
