A self-described geek, Ron Corriveau considers himself an electrical
engineer who designs integrated circuits for a large telecommunications company located in Texas. Corriveau believes his writing is a hobby meant to activate the right side of his brain. Originally from Southern California, this Texan lives with his lovely wife and wonderful two children just outside of Dallas.
Melina Roberts suffers from normal teenage angst. However, problems with school, friends, and a love interest are compounded by the sudden hospitalization of her mom—a victim of a drunk driver. Mrs. Roberts is in a coma and doctors don’t understand why.
Unbeknownst to Melina and younger genius brother Travis is the fact that their dad is a talented undercover agent for the President of the United States.
Ron Corriveau does a wonderful job moving from Melina’s point of view to that of her father, Evan Roberts. Readers get a close look at the life of a teenage girl who recently lost her mom and the life of an undercover spy. With action scenes that will keep readers flipping pages to tender moments of a girl’s first kiss, The Agent’s Daughter is a combination of Spy Kids and James Bond rolled up into one exciting adventure.
There were a few noticeable typos, but nothing too serious to pull you away from this entertaining read.
