About the Book:

Kat’s back for the third installment in the suspense thriller series that’s been called “a rollercoaster ride of an adventure.” (Jennie Reads)

“My name is Katerina Mills. Make sure I disappear.”

Katerina Mills is getting out . . .

Desperate to escape a psychotic former client, a vengeful mobster, and a dirty DEA agent, professional “fixer” Kat Mills is ready to drop out and disappear.

She doesn’t trust her employer, the shadowy MJM Consulting, but Katerina can’t say no to one last job for the biggest score yet, enough money to get lost for good . . . until the client asks the impossible . . .

Dmitry Zilinsky claims he is a direct descendant of Russia’s last Tsar, Nicholas II, and he demands Katerina steal the item that will prove it.

Kat must get the job done or she can’t make her escape. But when professional thief Alexander Winter reappears in her life, Katerina Mills faces a new choice: go it alone or risk everything to be with the one person she doesn’t want to live without?

My Thoughts:

I was hooked on Jill Amy Rosenblatt’s The Fixer series from the first line in the first book, and each installment since has been amazing. The plot continues to increase in complexity, and the author deftly weaves together all the various story threads and crazy characters.  I was on edge through this entire book.  The stress of worrying about Katerina Mills had my heart racing and the pages turning.

Becoming a “fixer” seemed like an easy way to get the money Katerina Mills needed to stay in school and keep a roof over her head.  The only problem?  The more she fixes client’s problems, the more problems she has of her own. Kat is like an insect caught in the intermingled webs of a handful of hungry spiders.  With every job, she amasses at least one new threat.  She has so many connections, and she is starting to owe a lot of favors to those associates.  Trying to stay one step ahead of the falling dominoes is exhausting.  She needs a knight in shiny armor, but being a can-do gal, she is set on getting herself out of her jam on her own.  Besides, can she truly trust anyone?Alexander Winters? Perhaps.  The charming “professor” seems to have Katerina’s back, but there are times I fear his secrecy means he is not as altruistic toward and upfront with Kat as she believes.

All the secondary characters are back.  Uncle Sergei seems too good to be true in terms of his care and concern for Kat and her mother.  The obvious antagonists are easy, but I’m on the fence about Sergei and his relationship with the family.  He makes me nervous!  I’m already chomping at the bit for the next book.  I have a lot of questions, and there is only one woman who has the answers I need!!

That’s right, the series does not end here.  The Fixer: The Last Romanov is chock-a-block full of thrills, chills, near misses and direct hits.  I just can’t get enough of Katerina Mills, but that woman’s unfulfilled dreams and wishes are killing me.

Thank you for another incredible fictional escape Ms. Rosenblatt; my blood pressure should return to normal by the time the next book is published.
