When Nikki Lanier signs up as a cosmetics rep at Carrie Mae, it's hardly her idea of a dream job. With a degree in linguistics and a hard-core workout regimen, the 26-year-old redhead once had hopes for a real career. But unemployed and desperate to escape life at home with her nagging mother, she'll try anything - even selling make-up to housewives. But soon, Nikki learns that the powder and lipstick are simply cover-up for The Carrie Mae Foundation: a secret organization of international espionage and high-tech mascara founded for the purpose of helping women everywhere.

Whisked off to Thailand with her appointed partner, the legendary Carrie Mae agent Val Robinson, Nikki is soon in over her head. Between investigating the abduction of a human rights advocate, tracking down a murderous arms dealer, keeping up with her wildly dangerous new partner, and occasionally trying to have a dating life (with a hunk who may or may not be CIA), Nikki has to use all the courage and cosmetic technology she's got to bring down the bad guys and get out alive.

With the support of the colorful Carrie Mae crew, a handsome yet suspicious stranger, and her wickedly unpredictable partner, Nikki will overcome even the most harrowing obstacles - including incessant phone calls from her mother - or die trying.

    " This book gets 2 stars because while I didn't like it, I also didn't hate it. It was just dumb. Cool premise, just horribly executed. If it wasn't going into WAY too much detail on the military tactics and gun facts, then it was them discussing makeup and shoe shopping. Really? Not quite sure who the intended audience for such a book is. Too prissy for me at parts, too butch at others, is probably the best way to put it. The best part was when they actually showed the main character going on her test mission. Wish there had been more of that because the actual mission was overall dumb and predictable. "

    " The blurb on the book is a great summary: "A pinch of James Bond . . . a handful of humor . . . great escapist fun." The Carrie Mae Foundation philosophy is to improve the lives of women everywhere through education, medical, and financial assistance, which is financed by selling affordable, quality cosmetics. But the Foundation also has a secret arm of trained operatives who literally fight for the rights of women everywhere. Redhead Nikki Lanier, who is a horrible cosmetic saleswomen, seems like a good fit for the spy activities given her blackbelt training and linguistics background. So she is sent to the training camp in California and then on assignment to try to rescue a woman who has been kidnapped in Thailand. Like the blurb says--lots of fun humor, believable spy adventure and action with spy tools masquerading as cosmetics, and just fun escapist reading. You'll enjoy it. "

    " This is a "what if" book -- what if Mary Kay Inc. had a clandestine group dedicated to fighting women's causes around the world, such as human trafficing? Under the umbrella of the Carrie Mae Foundation, poised and talented women fight for right. This is not great literature, but it was a lot of fun for someone who is with the the Mary Kay Foundation. Their work is a lot more exciting! I was entertained. "

    " This is one of the most entertaining mysteries I've read in awhile. The storyline is unique and a real page-turner. I highly recommend this! "
