Author Elizaveta Katrinova introduces us to the Moscow Express:
Katya’s first two weeks in Moscow have been a whirlwind of ups and downs. Now she is prepared for an unforgettable trip to Berlin. As two Russian soldiers and an officer of the FSK board her compartment on the Moscow Express, she fears just how unforgettable her trip will be.
Major Yevgeny Kapriyanov is not happy about being pulled in by the FSK for this mission. Upon finding out his beautiful, young traveling companion is an American, his suspicions of her and the mission heighten. Suspecting she is a spy, and not sure for whom, he seeks to find out just who she is and what her business is on this trip. Though Katya fears to say too much, Yevgeny is much too handsome to ignore. And the more he learns about her the more his attraction grows. But from somewhere inside the ranks a traitor lurks, and soon Yevgeny and Katya find themselves pawns in a deadly game of spy vs spy. Torn between resisting his feelings for Katya and giving into them, he vows to protect her while trying to save himself from dying a traitor’s death at the hands of his enemies.
Will Yevgeny and Katya be able to get past their suspicions of each other and let their love grow? And will he be able to save her from being arrested for being a spy and clear his name before it’s too late?
Set in contemporary Europe and Russia, Moscow Express is a fun and steamy read. Elizaveta makes excellent use of the locales for dressing her scenes; food apparel and public spaces go a long way to make this book quite enjoyable.
The action and dialog are paced well and the amount of narrative is just enough to keep the story moving. POV was great! Almost too good, because I really wanted to know what the minor characters were thinking at times.
There is so much to like in this book, I really enjoyed reading it.
Moscow Express gets 4.6 stars, the score would have been higher except for the handful of spelling errors I found.
