Shadow of a Doubt (The Tangled Ivy Trilogy #2) by Tiffany Snow

Ivy Mason has it all: beauty, a plush apartment, a fancy car, and a debonair British spy boyfriend who pays all her bills. If only her boyfriend was in her life—and her bed—more than just sporadically.
Part of an underground British agency called the Shadow, Devon Clay knows that secrecy is what has kept him alive. Anyone he loves is a liability, and being involved with him puts the other person in grave danger. Yet Ivy is someone his heart can’t resist.
When an enemy from Devon’s past returns, the spy and his girlfriend are thrown headlong into an international conspiracy that puts everyone Ivy loves at risk. From the Missouri River bottoms to the brothels of Amsterdam, Ivy and Devon must outrun and outmaneuver the forces allied against them, and no one can be trusted.

Shadow of a Doubt is the second book in the Tangled Ivy Trilogy by Tiffany Snow. It picks up a short time after the ending of In His Shadow.

I liked Ivy, but it seems like in this book she doesn’t have much common sense or what common sense she did have evaporated. Maybe it’s because she is extremely emotionally invested in her ‘relationship’ with Devon? I don't know...
She doesn’t want people to see her as a victim, as someone who constantly needs rescuing, but she doesn’t always make good judgement calls and she puts herself in situations where she does need rescuing.

At one point when Ivy and Devon are in a hotel room, she starts packing her bags to leave. Now people are after her. Her very life is in danger. But she doesn’t care about that. She wants to leave because it looks like there won’t be a future with Deven and he can’t give her more than he is right now.  I so wanted to shake her a few times during this book.

If she wants people to see her as strong and independent, then she needs to start acting strong and independent and I don’t think Ivy understands that unfortunately.

Other than that, the story was entertaining. It moved at a fast pace, and there was something almost always going on. I just wish that Ivy wasn’t so blinded by her feelings for Devon. It feels a bit one sided. Devon may care for her a little, but I don’t believe that the feelings run very deep.  The third book in the series, Out of the Shadows is expected to be released on December 15, 2015. I love Tiffany Snow’s writing style and will probably always read anything she writes, but I am going to say The Kathleen Turner series is my favorite series by her so far. In case you can’t get enough of Tiffany Snow’s writing, she has a new series starting up this summer! The first book, Power Play, releases on June 30th, so make sure to check it out.

RATING: 3 out of 5.
