Okay, I've spoken a little about this book already but now that I've finished it... I'm gonna talk about it some more! :)

A little from the actual website: 'The Madonna Key series, launching in July 2006, consists of seven Silhouette Bombshells recounting the adventures of a group of kick-ass women in modern Europe. When they uncover ancient secrets for which women have died, they awaken an enemy determined to wipe out the last of their kind. It's all going to happen before the transition from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius is complete, and failure could spell a catastrophe the likes of which Europe has never seen.'

So I finished the first Madonna Key book this afternoon and absolutely loved it! Catrina Dauvergne isn't your average heroine. She's French, has done a few bad things in the past and doesn't connect with people very easily. Yet, all that changes when an earthquake hits Paris and she falls into the long-lost grave of five guillotined women. The discovery throws her headfirst into an old mystery that has her seeing visions, finding keys and letters that push her further into the mystery of what happened to these women. Former priest Rhys Pritchard (already loved him from the Grailkeeper books!) is by her side to help her solve the mystery and tease her heart strings. They make an unlikely couple that seems doomed from the beginning...

This book was wonderful. There's action, a very strong narrator, enticing hero, loveable secondary characters, intriguing situations and a mystery that has hooked me in for the rest of the series. I can't wait to see what happens next -- where is this all heading?

Anyway, I knew this would be good but it surpassed my expectations. Evelyn Vaughn draws you into the tale with Catrina's casual voice, beautiful scenery and stimulating circumstances. This is a terrific book and I highly recommend it to anyone who's interested in checking out an intriguing thriller.

I haven't been a big fan of the Bombshells I've read so far, but oh, I love that cover. :)
