My Thoughts: I loved the first book in this series Protection for Hire. Now A Dangerous Stage is, again, about Tessa, but enter the lawyer, Charles Britton. Charles is the lawyer who sent Tessa to prison (for a crime she didn't commit).
Tessa's faith is tried, for it seems that lies abound everywhere she turns after she is hired by one of the contestants to delve into a shady singing competition.
Now, I REALLY love Camy Tang's books because they have a lot of action mixed with mounds of faith! Camy isn't preachy but she gets the point across. A lot like Tessa who lives her faith!
Tessa is one tough lady but she has a soft center just like a wonderful chocolate, caramel truffle but that tough exterior makes her seem like an iron maiden.
I wasn't sure about Charles...can a "wimpy" lawyer truly help a feisty lady like Tessa?! Will Charles really stand "tough?" These were a couple of questions I had when Tessa meets up with Charles.
I must say that I enjoyed A Dangerous Stage even more than I enjoyed reading Protection for Hire.
One doesn't need to read Protection for Hire before reading A Dangerous Stage but reading the first book will help in understanding Tessa and her mafia family.
This is one great read!
