I like your recommendation to keep this in mind as a weekend read. The cover does have me intrigued. Why would Kelly and Tom need the space shuttle on their honeymoon? Great review!

I can't imagine coming across terrorists on my honeymoon! I've read another book by this author and really enjoyed it (June book of the book) so should like I should read this one next! Thank you for the review.
I didn't get a chance to read the June book of the month, but, from what I've read, this seems to have less romance and more action. I enjoyed it.

Wow! Exciting plot! Running into terrorism during a honeymoon! It's great that they manage to face it in good spirit. Marvelous review. I really enjoyed reading it.
I'm not sure I would have handled it as well as they did. It was exciting, though. Thanks.

This is the type of book that I would love to peruse. I love reading action novels and I'm glad that the book is even a fast-paced one with an interesting plot. Great review!

Interesting review, but what is with the spaceship on the book's cover? Is that a major part of the plot?

I love a book that begins immediately with action and pulls you in (in sort of a buckle-your-seatbelt-and-hang-on kind of way!). Thank you for a great review!

It's major towards the end of the book. It would take away too much of the story too comment further. Thanks.

Oh my! If my honeymoon gets ruined by terrorists, I'd go ballistic! Mercer seems to like mixing romance with action. I just watched True Lies again. I wonder if EMP will be something similar.

I've seen True Lies. I don't know that you can really compare the two, but it's interesting in its own right. This one is more action oriented than some of her other novels. Thanks!

The press takes up a running commentary on the First Lady, including her clothes, her designer, and if she's gained weight. It made the book that much more realistic and enjoyable to me.
Very nice! :lol: This is, indeed, a glance into the real world. I enjoyed your review. I love sci-fi, and this sounds like a book for me!

It is. It did make me wonder if the author had a certain first lady in mind. :) Thanks!
