Tempest (Playing the Fool #3) by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock

 Something wicked this way comes.

FBI Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness and con man Henry Page are on the run again. This time they’re headed back to where it all began: Altona, Indiana. Population: some goats. Henry’s not happy about lying low at the McGuinness family farm, but they’ve got nowhere else to go.

While Mac fights to clear his name and Henry struggles with whose side he’s really on, a ghost from the past threatens to destroy everything. And those aren’t the only storms on the radar. Cut off from both sides of the law, Mac and Henry must rely on their tenuous partnership to survive.

If Henry can convince himself to let Mac see the man behind the disguises, they’ll stand a chance of beating the forces that conspire against them. The course of true love never did run smooth, but for the two of them, it might be their only hope.
The word of the day is disguspressed, the act of being impressed while disgusted. Don’t get me wrong I was completely impressed with this book. In no way was I disgusted but I had to try out Henry’s new word and add it to my vocabulary because I just can’t get enough of that loveable con artist. He’s like sugar. You can’t help but become addicted to him, right Mac?

Last we left Mac and Henry they were on the run with Viola, off to Mac’s family farm in Altona to hide out while Mac searched for answers regarding who was framing him for the murder of Lonny Harris and why. With Val helping Mac out and Mac’s family keeping them hidden Mac and Henry are searching every avenue they can to figure out what is going but being hidden away on a farm isn’t Henry’s idea of fun. As usual he’s doing everything he can to add some more drama to an already dramatic situation while burying away his feelings but with their lives on the line and things flipping upside down will Henry finally open up to Mac before it’s too late? Will we finally get that moment fans of Mac and Cheese have been waiting for? Come on Henry just say it!

I don’t how many ways I can profess my love for the unlikely crime fighting due of Mac and Cheese but I adore these two beyond words. The funny quips that Henry and Mac spout off to one another have me pulling out a pen and jotting them down for future reference so I can one day work them into a conversation. Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock have a magical way of creating scenes that make you feel like your watching a television show live. The imagery of each situation is written so vividly that the emotions feel real and the scenes play through your mind like a movie you don’t want to end. One second you’re gripping your seat in panic at what’s about to happen and the next your laughing hysterically.

I’m expecting the Mac and Cheese TV show to start shooting any day now and for that movie screenplay to be finished soon. The world needs a Mac and Cheese TV series, a movie, action figures, trading cards, lunch boxes, pez dispensers, limited edition packs of skittles and M&Ms with Mac and Cheese printed on the wrappers and special Mac and Cheese donuts.

This better not be the end. We need more adventures of Henry and Mac especially now that Henry is an official consultant to the FBI I imagine the hilarity will jump up a few notches. Also I really need to know how the whole chicken coop is going and would love to see some pictures of the chickens!
