Book Review: Undercover Saint by Frank Holdaway

****--4 Stars.

Description (from amazon):
Going undercover in a Salt Lake City Mormon singles ward is not anti-terrorist agent Matthew Knight’s idea of a high-profile assignment. And he has deliberately avoided the Beehive State ever since his mother was murdered in Salt Lake City when he was eight years old. Ready at first to defy his orders from Washington, he resolves to stick around when he’s attacked by a man with ties to his past. But this undercover assignment is unlike any Matt has encountered before. Not only must he find the bad guys, but he also must deal with eccentric roommates, a giant of a bishop who is also his boss, a boisterous ex-Marine who wants to engage Matthew in a public display of ultimate machismo, and a seventy-five-year old woman named Permelia who wants to marry him. And these are small distractions compared to the beautiful Hope Winslow, a woman with mountains of hair who adopts him as a surrogate big brother. But before he can think about love, Matt has to get rid of a few terrorists, including his mother’s killer—and his own inner demons. 

My Review:
I love stories with quirky characters!! And Undercover Saint is full of them. Matthew is going undercover in his toughest assignment yet--an LDS singles ward. Really...who would ever dream of someone being a spy in a singles ward?! He has quite a different sense of humor and the ward members are very unique as well. I enjoyed the twists and turns that the story took me through. I loved how there was a little bit of everything--humor, romance, and a very unique mystery.

Content: some mild violence, otherwise clean.
