      Move over J.D Robb and Patricia Cornwell There is a new gal in town BETH MCMULLEN I was so nose stuck to every word in this book It was a great read and I loved how she went from her past as a spy and being in the jungle in Cambodia to tending to her three year old son I didn t get the back and forth dizziness that I usually get With great characters and this being the first book of the Sally Sin spy series I can not wait for the next one to come out in May 2012 I highly recommend this book.

    5. Skye says:

      I think the premise of Original Sin is really cool, and somehow the packaging feels like an ABC television show You know the guy who does the voice overs for the Castle previews Well I can totally hear him saying, Sin.Is.In Suburban housewife Lucy Parks Hamilton has a huge secret She once was Agent 26, a.k.a Sally Sin for a covert government agency shooting this and hiding that She was a big deal, and that s why her former boss Simon wants her to come out of retirement to lure her former nemesis [...]

    6. Cecilia says:

      I hesitate to label Original Sin as chick lit in fear that it might turn people off, but I didn t know how else to categorize it to fully encompass its awesomeness Because awesome it truly is and I m not saying that because its main character can flip me over her shoulder and slam me onto an bystanding IKEA bed with a shattering crack No, dear Readers, I say Original Sin will surely tempt you to stay up all night and devour it whole because it is truth.Right from the start, I fell in love with L [...]

      I had mixed feeling after finishing the book, I really wanted to like it, and before reading it had already planned on passing it onto the other two members of my work bookclub , especially since I haven t offered any books and so far had just read what they had brought me, but it fell slightly short for me Perhaps I had too high of expectations going in, or maybe it s because I ve never been a spy or a mother lol The bouncing back and forth between her life now and her life as a spy kind of con [...]

    8. Virginia says:

      The spy part of this book I found utterly ridiculous and terribly unbelievable Funny enough, I found the spy moments boring and wanted to get back to the mom moments Despite not having ever been a spy, I totally relate to the foreignness of being a mother and the unique isolation of a SAHM The desperation and bewilderment of being the parent of a little person who is completely and utterly unreasonable yet incredibly cute and your entire world is spot on Those moments, I found true and real The [...]

    9. Nancy says:

      This book is hilarious Through Lucy Sally Elizabeth or whoever she really is, I have developed a girl crush on Beth McMullen She completely encapsulates the idea of sarcastic sense of humor Although in ARC form, I will provide a quote that had me laughing out loud The bridge is old and wooden It sways precariously in the wind There is enough space between the railing slates for a small child to slip through Probably not a great destination for Theo, I think, although he d think it was cool I giv [...]

    10. Jeanette says:

      I m sorry I just could t get past the first pages and hoping the bad guy would win in the end.

    11. Shelley says:

      Meet Lucy Hamilton She s just your average San Francisco stay at home mom Except, you know, that she was a spy for the United States Agency for Weapons of Mass Destruction USAWMD She was recruited right out of college, and she spent time travelling the world doing various jobs, as assigned by her supervisor Simon And then she met the love of her life She left the USAWMD and set out to discover normalcy whatever THAT is.Although her husband, Will, is convinced that he has yet to uncover all of he [...]

    13. Jackie says:

      Disclaimer 3 stars isn t really what I think about this book 2 stars aren t enough and 4 stars are way too many, so three stars compromise.What I hated about this book The language Seriously Does this kind of constant f ing and sh ing add anything to the plot, the characters or the enjoyment of the book Absolutely not And for that reason alone I was tempted to rate this book much lower And I nearly tossed the book aside, returned it to the library and gave it a Do Not Read review It is so unflat [...]

    14. Vickie says:

      Back of the book says ORIGINAL SIN is a mix of True Lies meets I Don t Know How She Does It I had just as much fun reading this book as I do watching a Burn Notice marathon sundae with a Long Kiss Goodnight cherry on top It took a bit for me to dig the story, maybe a few pages of getting used to how Lucy dealt with her life of motherhood and wifedom Once she began telling me how this life came to be from the Phoenix ashes of her spy past, I was hooked Lucy Sally tells her story in vignettes of f [...]

    15. Jenny Brandon says:

      I thoroughly enjoyed Original Sin Getting to know Lucy Hamilton is a pleasure She is also know as Sally Sin Her roles of wife and mother are definitely out of the ordinary when invaded by her former life as a spy Sally traveled the world at a moment s notice chasing bad guys doing dastardly things Lucy takes son Theo to the park and daycare never letting him out of her sight She tries to do the mommy thing while not getting too intimate with any of the park patrons Her husband Will knows she has [...]

    16. Mary Chrapliwy says:

      I was so sorry to see the last page of Sally Sin I m hoping there is another Sally Sin book in the works.Lucy is a happily married mommy with a past that her husband doesn t know about she was a covert agent, running missions overseas for the government Her husband knows what agency she worked for, but thinks she just had a desk job Lucy is happy to leave it at that The less hubby knows, the better Unfortunately, her past life comes knocking at the door and Lucy s peaceful, simple little life is [...]

    17. Jill says:

      This diverting book, written as Book One of the Sally Sin series, is reminiscent of the Nadia Stafford series by Kelley Armstrong Both involve hit women although Sally is associated with a government organization rather than an illegal network of killers for hire and both women are trying to live normal lives when not engaged in sending criminals to early graves This is not a dark or even realistic tale, not withstanding the participation of some supposedly very nasty people in the story The ton [...]

    18. Book Him Danno says:

      I love an adventure I can relate to and this is one of those I stay at home with my kids and a few spy moves and training would have come in handy over the years Little ones step on your body and big children step on your heart Maybe a bit of spy training would have made both of those situations better.This is a LOL book that will keep you reading and wondering why you forgot to make dinner and pay any attention to those precious little ones you actually work for Funny stuff.

    19. Luanne says:

      This is not your typical chic lit spy book It is well written, fast paced book about a suburban housewife who was a spy Sally Sin, now Lucy, is a mom wife with a toddler son Theo But her spy life is coming to visit her in suburbia Great book Looking forward to the next book in this series.

    20. Jeanne says:

      Sally Sin is a former covert operative now trying to lead a normal life as a wife and stay at home mother to 3 year old Theo Unfortunately, some habits are hard to break Sally, now named Lucy, is paranoid that her past will catch up with her and she finds herself crawling in the bushes outside her home convinced that she heard something When Theo goes to nursery school, Lucy stakes out a table at a coffee shop, not taking her eyes off the building he s in But the past always catches up, and Lucy [...]

    21. Jayne Marshall says:

      I enjoyed this book, it reminded me of Janet Evanovich whom I love It was a quick and easy read yet the story was enjoyable I liked how the past intertwined with the present However the book ended with me having a lot of questions and few answers I know there was a second book but have been unable to find it so far When I get my hands on this it may help to answer some of those questions All in all a good easy read.

    22. Cat Kwiatkowski says:

      The actually story line to this is good, but it is constantly interrupted with so many flashbacks that it s hard to keep up with it If you need something to read for a few hours this is good, but don t put it down as you might not remember what happened before to keep up when you pick it back up.

    23. Lisa Schmid says:

      Sally Sin is one cool cat She is also sharp as a tack and funny as hell I firmly believe the author must have been a spy in a former life Love this book

      Review originally posted on Bitten Books and given 4 stars.Sally Sin traded in her life as a spy for the United States Agency for Weapons of Mass Destruction after nine years for the life of a stay at home mom to her three year old son as Lucy Parks Sally faced some of the worst criminals in existence, all of whom wanted her dead, as well as regular kidnappings from her very own nemesis Sally eventually met a man and finally wanted out of her life of danger, however, one of the conditions was th [...]

      Call me a cynic but it was just meh Took only the last 1 16 of the book that finally picked up for me She is spy She got out of college, took a battery of tests to see how she would do in life and the spy people wanted her Seems she scored the second highest There s Ian Blackford who scored highest.Long story short, she s married to a guy name Will Ian Blackford is now a bad guy and he was in the co hoots with The Blind Man who we all thought was his adversaryok, the book stated, TBM was IB s sw [...]

    28. Alicia (is beyond tired of your *ish) says:

      This is probably somewhere between 2.5 stars and three It was obvious going in that this wasn t a spy story to be taken seriously if the bright pink cover wasn t an indication, the organization, the USAWMD, is Which is a good thing for anyone to keep in mind going into this, otherwise you re going to be sorely disappointed Lucy Hamilton Sally Sin is a terrible spy even though she calls herself good enough It s only through sheer luck and the odd taunting soft spot the primary bad guy must have f [...]

    29. Shelleyrae at Book'd Out says:

      Original Sin is an exciting debut by Beth McMullen introducing Lucy Hamilton AKA Sally Sin , once a spy with the United States Agency for Weapons of Mass Destruction USAWMD , now a wife and stay at home mother Signing the waiver that gave the Agency permission to recall her for duty seemed reasonable at the time of her retirement but now her handler Simon wants to use as her bait to expose an old nemesis and she is reluctantly pulled back into the shadowy world of arms dealing and assassins With [...]

    30. Christine Jensen says:

      You know, I really do love a good mystery, and Original Sin has many of the characteristics of a good mystery a strong lead, interesting characters, plenty of action and a well unraveled plot Sally or Lucy looks to the world like every other paranoid, first time mother with her purse filled to the brim with sippy cups and crackers, watching her 3 year old son s every move What everyone around her doesn t realize is that her paranoia comes from experience, she has seen the worst the world can do [...]
