Allison and Bart have yet to have a proper honeymoon. Bart's affiliation with Interpol and Allison's inherited peril and her inane ability to encounter danger make it impossible for any alone time. Allison begins to wonder if marriage is really such a great thing after all. Bart, her adoring husband and "knight in shining armor" wants more than anything for both of them to be baptized and sealed in the temple. Thwarting jewel thieves and staying alive are the essence of this continuing saga and ...more

This feels like a typical series book although the setting, aboard a cruise ship, is somewhat exotic. Philippa's parents work on the cruise ship; Philip's dad is the new captain. On their first voyage together, the kids, both aged 11, can't fail to notice a particularly difficult passenger and her obnoxious two nephews since these passengers' attention seems to be focused on Philippa and Philip. A mystery ensues involving royalty, missing diamonds, and (rather tame) adventures. Probably best for ...more

The third book in the series follows Bart and Allison as they head to San Fransisco. Of course, anything that can wrong does and Allison is always in the middle of it. Her evil stalker returns from the grave but in the end Allison and Bart are triumphant. Light and breezy, this action/romance was a fun, quick read.

I really enjoyed this one. Even though these books are kind of like the show "24" where anything that could possibly go wrong, does.

And as great as the action is, I don't think I could ever recommend it to a guy. It's written from a girl's perspective and so the "romantic" parts would be way too mushy for a guy. ;)

Another one down in less than 24 hours from start to finish. I find myself constantly trying to find out who the "bad guy" is and not always am I right. A great page turner yet very much like the previous 2 books.

I really should have started from the beginning of the series, but this was available to me to read to I read it. It just seemed like there was a little too much going on and not enough story to support all of the action. I still might finish out the series though, I will have to think about it.

Once I got started on this series, I had to buy the next one that Lynn Gardner wrote, and so continued along the dangerous lives of Allison and Bart. The inclusion of religion, prayer, and faith added to the meaning of the book for me. I enjoyed the story and the twists and turns of the plot.

This was her first book. You can tell it is a first book as it is rough in places. The series gets better and better. I really enjoyed this series. It was very fun, exciting, and romantic. The romance is between a Husband and Wife which makes it even more fun to read. (for us LDS people)

These books are really great. I love this kind of novel. Ramance and action rolled very perfectly in one.

Boy Allison annoyed me in this one. She has no idea what she does to Bart. But the setting was compelling and the mystery intriguing

It was fun to see the story continue of Allison Alexander Allan, but some of her adventures were a little far-fetched that she could actually survive. Interested to see where the story leads next.
