DiAnn Mills' Breach of Trust ~ Reviewed
Breach of Trust
By DiAnn Mills
Published by Tyndale
Back Cover: Paige Rogers is a former CIA agent who lost all she treasured seven years ago when her entire team was killed in a covert mission. She blames their leader – Daniel Keary – whom Paige believes betrayed them. Disillusioned and afraid for her life, she disappears and starts a new life as a small-town librarian.
But when Keary announces his candidacy for governor of her state, he comes after Paige to ensure that she won’t ruin his bid for office. He threatens everything she holds dear, and Paige must choose between the life of hiding that has become her refuge…or risking everything in one last, desperate attempt to right old wrongs.

Paige Rogers reminds me of Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter, trying to keep his real identity secret. He has super powers that can’t be revealed to the public. He only uses his powers to help people he cares about and/or to save them from danger.
I like DiAnn’s spin on Paige, mild-mannered librarian, “Is she faster than a speeding bullet? Prettier than any belle of the South? It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Super Librarian!” The author does have some really funny lines mixed in with all the action, suspense and drama.
Paige Rogers has seen more action than someone would see in a couple of life times. All is well until Keary starts turning up the heat near the end of his run for governor. She’s done her part and she wants Keary to hold to his end of the agreement they made in Africa. The price was high and she lost everything; there was nothing more to give him.
Paige struggles with her double life and holds off using her super-training until peoples lives are at stake - especially her own. I love Paige’s sense of humor as she turns down a motorcycle ride from Miles because he thinks she is a shy, quiet librarian. She's playing the part when she says to Miles, ”…I have a theory that people have only so much luck in life, and I’ve already stretched mine to the limit. Keep your Harley. I’ll stick with my sensible economic car. And seat belts.”
DiAnn writes a very exciting, surprising story about politics, the CIA and corruption. Readers beware!!! Once you pick up this book you won’t stop until the end...
