Reviews of The Path to Freedom:


I love the fact that this book takes the reader into a world beyond what happens with people who live their lives as spies. I like that the adventures of the careful preparation of these spies and the line crossing into worlds of some very dangerous people to blend in with them and muzzle their efforts of corruption. These efforts range from being Religious to personal financial gain that leads to espionage. This book pricks your concern about where we would be if those on our side and what’s being reported from our enemies here in our country. There was not much I can say that I didn’t like about this book except that I am not an avid love story reader and the love that develops between Sarah and Vince was nice. I am sure that in their situation it is hard to be devoid of feelings. I did wish that they could have entertained their feeling sooner, maybe it could have help them handle their predicament a lot better or maybe not!

I have to say THE PATH TO FREEDOM is one genuinely impressive read. I loved Sarah’s gung ho attitude and her determination to reinvent herself and there’s no doubt in my mind that she’s wholly successful in achieving that goal. Vince has issues of his own – both personally and professionally – and Sarah’s ability to stand up to him is a huge turn on for him. One of the things I especially enjoyed about this story was the closeness of the members of Task Force 125. There’s a genuine caring and ‘openness’ that’s extended to Sarah and really says a lot about this group. Lisa Pietsch infuses this story with humor, lots of action, friendship, romance and suspense so that you’re pulled into these characters lives and don’t want to let them go. Fortunately Ms. Pietsch is working on more stories for both Sarah and her fellow ‘fat camp’ roomy’ Tracey Ballentine so I’ll be anxious to revisit them both and find out just where their adventures have taken them.

LISA PIETSCH bring fans a new and adventurous story that follow the live of woman hoping to make it in the world of espionage, terrorism and maybe get some action under the covers with her team leader. Its all in a day’s work. But will Sarah be prepared to do whatever it takes to get up and close with her intended target to could save millions of lives. It certainly doesn’t hurt her to be a part of team full of sexy men. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.

THE PATH TO FREEDOM is action packed new drama from the author who won’t leave fans hanging by working on the sequel.. We are definitely going to crave more on her characters, Sarah and her men. I can honestly say that not being a fan of action filled books, LISA PIETSCH has certainly changed my mind and opened a whole new world for me. Reading this is certainly never enough. Its meant to be read over and over again. It will have many fans addicted.
