THE LOVING DAYLIGHTS – Lynsay Sands
Sonora, California – Present Day
Jane Spyrus works for a super secret spy organization in research and development. She makes all the amazingly awesome gadgets the agents need during their missions. Sure, some of them might seem strange—such as the missile launcher that looks like a vibrator—but as long as they work and keep the organization's agents out of the enemies' hands, Jane knows she is doing good work.
Abel Andretti started to worry when his sister didn't pick him up from the airport, and now that he knows no one has seen her since she went on a date the night before, he knows something is wrong. His sister's neighbor seems a little odd, but this Jane girl apparently has a way of tracking his sister, and he is willing to follow any possible lead. Unfortunately, this means carting along his sister's cat, Jane's grandmother, and a dog named Tinkle. Abel can't believe his sister's neighbor is a spy, but she certainly has a lot of odd gadgets lying around. And when they find out his sister has been kidnapped by a group wanting to use mind control to take over the world, Abel is glad to have someone like Jane on his side.
