Fatal Code by Natalie Walters: Book Review

 **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

In 1964, a group of scientists called the Los Alamos Five came close to finishing a nuclear energy project for the United States government when they were abruptly disbanded. Now the granddaughter of one of those five scientists, aerospace engineer Elinor Mitchell, discovers that she has highly sensitive information on the project in her possession--and a target on her back.

SNAP agent and former Navy cryptologist Kekoa Young is tasked with monitoring Elinor. This is both convenient since she's his neighbor in Washington, DC, and decidedly inconvenient because . . . well, he kind of likes her.

As Elinor follows the clues her grandfather left behind to a top-secret nuclear project, Kekoa has no choice but to step in. When Elinor learns he has been spying on her, she's crushed. But with danger closing in on all sides, she'll have to trust him to ensure her discoveries stay out of enemy hands.

Natalie Walters sucks you into the global race for space domination in this perfectly paced second installment of her SNAP Agency romantic suspense series.

Fatal Code is the second book in The SNAP Agency series. I definitely feel like this is one that should be read as a series. While the story might stand okay on it's own, I feel like readers will definitely have a better understanding of the team members and their dynamic if they read in order. (Plus, the first book was fantastic and definitely a highly recommended read regardless.)

When I was first introduced the SNAP team, I must admit it was Kekoa's character that had me most intrigued, so I was really excited to read his story...and I am happy to say it did not disappoint. The Hawaiian, food loving, computer genius Kekoa was really such a unique character... I read a LOT of romantic suspense, and oftentimes the heroes tend to blend together a bit after awhile, but this one is definitely one of a kind, and I found him to be very entertaining--- as was our heroine Elinor. The story was fast paced and had a lot of layers that kept me guessing and turning pages right through to the end. Overall, this was a fantastic read and I cannot wait to see what comes next in the series!
