After fleeing D.C. following a one-night stand that had her reeling, biotech company heiress Mia Moncure has thrived working with a humanitarian aid team administering vaccines in Haiti. When the United States is threatened with a flu epidemic, Mia’s grandmother demands her return to unveil a new flu vaccine for Moncure Therapeutics. She arrives to find that her ex-boyfriend, the company’s PR Director, has died in a suspicious accident in Switzerland that Mia soon suspects was murder. Determined to reveal a killer, Mia heads to Switzerland where she’s threatened as she discovers a plan to infiltrate the vaccine for nefarious purposes. Desperate for backup, she turns to sexy Gio Lorenzo, Communications Director for her mother, a high-ranking senator–and Mia’s one-night stand. While negotiating their rocky relationship, they race to uncover a deadly scheme that could ruin her family’s reputation. But millions of people are being vaccinated, and there’s more than her family’s legacy at stake. Mia and Gio struggle to discover the truth about the scheme and their feelings for each other, but it just might be too late.
Welcome Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seat belts because today, instead of a "boring" review, we are going a global tour.   Let's start in the disaster torn areas of Haiti, where we have been giving aide to the people in need for the last few months along with our tour guide Mia.  For those who don't know they were hit by an earthquake in 2010 then a devastating hurricane right after.  You can see more information here.  Mia is here as part of relief efforts to stem the rising epidemic due to these disasters.
After a few months of avoiding her 'real life' it comes calling for her, and she must return home. There she is made aware of the problem about to explode all over the US and her familys' company is right in the center of it.  Before long we realize this is a true whodunit, as secrets Mia wasn't aware of started coming out.  She had run away from her feelings and her personal life, but just because she pushed pause didn't mean the rest of the world did, and someone important to her is now gone.  Mia is left reeling from their departure, but their death isn't as it seems and Mia is left with a few clues as to what was happening and of course all her own personal family drama, because her brother Matt is the worst twin ever!!

Before long our travels takes us away from, the Beltway into old New York, and from there into one of the oldest and sexiest (in my opinion ) places on Earth.  Welcome ladies and gents to Lucrene Switzerland.
Here is where the mystery really begins, let's depart for our hotel, take a walk down memory lane, stop at the bank, eat and head on over to the gorgeous Spreuer Bridge.
These paintings are very amazing. Of course this isn't the only thing about this bridge that should scare us. Make sure you watch your step.

According to Frommer's guide we have to check out the collection here in the Museum  (image via the  website) which is funny because our clues lead us there. Is anyone really a fan of Picasso or do they just say that to sound 'cultured' we learn even more information that we expected. Something to do with a Dragon, hmm this is getting better every page.

There is so much going on and poor Mia is at the epicenter of it, and she's way out of her depth.I loved reading the build up between Mia and Gio,   I loved the mystery of who had done what and why.  I was compelled to finish the story, I was intrigued and loved the heck out of everything that was being revealed. I hated who we were supposed to hate and just went along for the ride.  It's too awesome and I've already given you a few clues, the rest?? Well you're just going to have to read to find out now aren't you??
