THE NEWLYWEDS

Author(s): 
Working undercover is a familiar activity for special agent Bridget Logan, but her new assignment taxes both her acting skills and her patience. She's posing as the trophy wife of fellow agent Sam Jones as they attempt to flush out a black-market baby ring operating through the Children's Connection. It's a tough case to break, and in the meantime Bridget and Sam are stuck with each other. Proximity breeds all sorts of things—unfortunately, contempt isn't one of them. Many revelations integral to the overall Logan's Legacy plot arc are made in The Newlyweds (3), but this story's plot is insubstantial. While Sam and Bridget are appealing characters, and the banter between them is quite witty, their relationship doesn't develop convincingly.
