Title: The Geneva Decision (Pia Sabel #1)
Author: Seeley James
Pub. Date: December 1st 2012
The Geneva Decision follows protagonist Pia Sabel and her transition from professional soccer player to a key player in her father's private security company. When she witnesses a murder, she's on the prowl. Mistaken for a spoiled rich girl, her opponents have another thing coming: her sharp wit, killer instincts, and athletic prowess make her one hell of a threat.
I have to say, I really liked the character Pia Sabel. She was headstrong, sometimes to the point of frustration. She holds her own and proves that girls can play just as hard as the boys. I like that she was given a bit of unique insight as a professional athlete- it added a nice component as to why she's quite the bad ass.
This book had scarcely a dull moment. There's a lot of nonstop action that make the reader follow the story from exotic locales like Cameroon and European places like Switzerland. The twists and turns and sequences of suspense engross the reader for sure, and the settings only add to the charm. Seeley James does a great job of describing the surroundings, making it easy to become involved with the chases.
The prose was a bit choppy in places, but it wasn't enough to hinder my reading too much. The plot and dialogue made up for it, in my humble opinion.
I also really like the cover. I know that's not how you should judge a book, but it would look snazzy on a display or a shelf. Don't you think?
I'd recommend this book to people who enjoy strong female lead characters, mystery, thrillers, or crime novels. Thank you so much to the author who gave me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
