The Unexpected Spy by Liza O’Connor
Having come so close to Parliament falling into a foreign country’s hands, Amy wishes to help keep her country safe by being the finest spy Chavier has ever taught.
Since no one but Chavier, and those who know her well, perceive her to be anything but a charming, but silly young girl, she will have easy access to those who are apt to cause trouble, since they will think her harmless.
Amy is the finest spy that has ever existed. Her ability to hide in plain sight is almost magical. Her ability to heal is beyond what should be possible. Her hearing is acute as is her ability to smell. Thus, she can throw a knife with accuracy in the dark and hit her targets with precision. In addition, she now knows ten languages: English, French, Scottish, Dutch, Russian, German, Portuguese, Finnish, Spanish, and Swiss. Thus if, someone whispers in a different language she not only has acute hearing to hear it, but it is very likely that she will understand what they are saying.
EXCERPTToday, Amy had managed to arrive for their mid-day meal before Chavier. Thus, she was able to fill her plate with her favorite meats, fruits, and vegetables. She even made a little plate of meats for Patience, which she held in her lap.
Chavier entered and smiled at her full plate. “Did you leave me anything to eat?” he chided.
“Shall I ask the head server to bring out more?” Amy asked. “I’m sure she will, if I ask.”
Chavier gripped her hand and kissed her knuckles in a sensual manner that made her hungry, but not for food.
“I will share my food, if you wish,” she offered and moved her chair closer to the corner.
“I believe you are sharing sufficiently with your pup. I will manage with the scraps you’ve left.”
Her forehead wrinkled. “Truly, I do not want you to go hungry.”
“That will never happen. Since the head server adores you, she ensures you nor I ever go hungry.”
“She does. but still, I will share my food.” She stabbed a thick chunk of roast with the serving fork. “Would you like this strip? I’ve already eaten two slices.”
Chavier laughed. “I have no idea how you remain so thin given the quantity of food you consume.”
“You may have this slice if you wish.”
“No, I’ll just take the scraps you left me.” He then stabbed the remaining cut.
Just then, the head server entered with a fresh plate of roast strips.
“My, but you two must be starving. When was the last time either of you ate?”
“Yesterday,” Chavier replied.
“Me too! What were you doing yesterday?” Amy asked.
“We’ll discuss that later,” he promised Amy.
She smiled, hoping that meant she was going to do more spy work. Her first attempt at spying had gone very well. Chavier had hidden documents in the library and she had found them all before the hour was up. However, this time she wanted it to be a real event. That would be ever more exciting.

More About the Author
Liza O’Connor’s favorite books are Pride & Prejudice and Douglas Adams’ four book trilogy, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Go figure…
Raised in the southern mid-section of U.S., Liza escaped to the East Coast once out of college. She’s worked as a journalist, a radio DJ, a security guard, a stockbroker, a strategist, and a business solutions consultant to name a few of her many occupations. Again…go figure.
She learned to fly planes, jump out of planes, hang-glide, kayak and scuba dive, to name of few of her ‘let’s kill Liza’ sports. However, her favorite activity was to hike with her dog Jess among the shaved mountains of NJ. Jess is near 20 years old now, so he’s not up to much anymore. So I just garden and write more books.

Amy is a one of a kind woman. She's got the looks and charm but also the smarts. Ms. O'Connor's latest book in the Extraordinary Woman series is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat as Amy navigates a criminal controlled area of England. People aren't who they appear to be and Amy's life is on the line...but more importantly--England's future is in danger!
Amy is one of my favorite Liza O'Connor's characters. She reminds me of Vic from her Historical England Sleuth Series. I could see the two women becoming friends and with those two on the case, the world is a better place!
