Giveaway & The Top 10 ways to tell if your best friend is a super spy by GIni Koch

Please help me welcome Gini Koch, one of my favorite authors back to A Buckeye Girl Reads! She's here today with a great guest post and giveaway.

Top 10 Ways to Tell That Your Best Friend is a Super Spy
By Gini Koch

Katherine “Kitty” Katt-Martini thought her best guy friend from high school was just a super genius who was also a self-made millionaire twice over. Well, he is. But Charles “Chuckie” Reynolds is more…so much more. And Kitty was, as it seems is always the way, the last to know.

In honor of the release of Kitty’s latest exploits, chronicled in Alien in the House, here’s her good go-to list for how to figure out if your best guy friend is actually more awesome than James Bond.

10. He lives half the year in Australia and half in the U.S.

9. He’s considered one of Australia’s most eligible bachelors

8. And yet, he’s in the U.S. whenever he needs to be, which is a lot

7. He’s a conspiracy theorist who’s always right

6. He’s still a nerd, but he’s a nerd who can kill someone in a lot of interesting ways

5. He’s actually got the reflexes to be able to take out an alien moving at hyperspeed

4. He tells you he does something vague, and yet he knows every person of interest in political circles…personally

3. Your mother listens to his opinions before she takes action

2. Your boyfriend/fiancé/husband has some major jealousy issues in regards to your BFF, and not just because said BFF used to be in love with you, but because said BFF gets to tell your boyfriend/fiancé/husband what to do…and he has to do it

1. He’s a super-genius who’s also a self-made millionaire twice over in both business and the stock market…and his third career is running the Extra-Terrestrial Division of the C.I.A. (Yeah, this one’s kind of the giveaway.)

Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini have learned the ins and outs of Washington politics, not to mention how to prevail in intergalactic war and foil dangerous plots. But, in the aftermath of Operation Destruction, the Gower girls’ powers are burned out, the entire A-C population has been “outed” as the aliens living on Earth that they are, and, worst of all, ACE is nowhere to be found. Then murder and mayhem are served up at an important dinner party at the American Centaurion Embassy, and when the dust settles Alpha Team and the Diplomatic Corps have more problems than just a dead Congressman. Is there a single criminal mastermind—or multiple enemies—behind all the conspiracies that want Kitty dead and the A-Cs gone or co-opted to become the War Division? The return of the best assassins in the business, the reappearance of two individuals long-presumed dead, Agent Malcolm Buchanan felled by something no one can identify or cure, and new technology that can block even the most powerful empath on Earth … all of this means the game’s officially afoot. Then Vance Beaumont comes to Kitty with a wild theory that someone is systematically killing off the House of Representatives…

It’s up to Kitty and the rest of the gang to find out what’s really going on and why. But will they be able to stop the killer or killers before the rest of the U.S. House of Representatives become casualties? And will the replacement Representative for New Mex
