Special Agent Murphy by Mimi Barbour


Special Agent Murphy 
Undercover FBI Book 8 
by Mimi Barbour 
Genre: Romantic Suspense 


It's Christmas in Washington, but not for one heartsick family.

Agent Shane Murphy has a hard time believing his life could get so crazy. Because of a choice – one he’d make again – he loses his superiority in the FBI. Now he’s forced to work surveillance with a rookie female yapper. And… gets caught up in the kidnapping of a sixteen-year-old that pulls at the heartstrings he keeps hidden.

Fighting the budding attraction for his new partner, he stresses his way through an escalating nightmare. How can he be so infatuated with a trouble-magnet female who drives like a granny and isn’t able to hide her sensitive reactions when on the job?

Agent Kathleen Edwards does a lot of things her new partner dislikes, but what’s a girl to do when a man ties her in knots and turns her into a chatterbox. Working to uncover the mystery of who kidnapped the Senator’s daughter, and where they’re holding her, continuous conflicts arise.

Struggling alongside an attractive realist whose high morals make him someone to live up to, Kayti’s heart doesn’t stand a chance. 

Author's dedication: 

My late husband’s persona is the heart and soul for Special Agent Murphy. While bringing out some of his most endearing and stubborn characteristics, his favorite cuss words and his way of looking at the world, I found myself falling in love with the wonderful man all over again. 

Together Forever, my love.

Because it’s fun! Imagination can be a lot more interesting than what happens in real life to so-called ‘normal’ people. I love my characters, and my goal is to make the readers love them also. To be concerned about what happens to them while the tale unfolds. If I can steal my booklover’s attention away from their everyday grind, absorb them in a fictional world, and make them care about the ending, then I’ve done my job.”
Mimi lives with her dog Charli who drags her from her office for walks twice a day. Her son and niece fill her life and make each day a joy.

    1. It was a sweet-soul-searching book for me to write, Kartie. Have to tell the truth. I got totally invested. Hope you like Murphy.... I think he's a doll myself. LOL!

  5. I really like the book cover and excerpt. I enjoy suspense books like this. I look forward to reading the paperback/print version of this format and hope I win. If I win I would use the prize to buy books.
    Do I have questions for author? Yes I do. How do pick your characters? How do you choose the setting? How do choose whether to have a Hero or Heroine? How do you choose what goes in your plot?
    Hope I win.

    1. Hi Crystal, Thanks for commenting and asking questions. It's fun to have to explore the answers myself. For this book, finding the characters was easier than others. I knew Murphy since I lived with the man he's modeling for fifty-two years. But coming up with a plot he could be involved in came to me a few months before he passed, when he himself told me about a cold-case file he'd watched about a kidnapping. Kathleen had to be a foil against him and who better than the type of female he tended to like - someone not perfect but who had a lot of heart. BTW - Kathleen was always his favorite female name. The setting, Washington, D.C. was the last place where we holidayed together.
      I hope you win, too :-)

    1. He was an amazing man, Sue. It was bitter-sweet writing about him, picturing him in my head day after day. He seemed so close to me and that made me happy.

      Everyone seems to like my cover and I will admit to searching for days on a lot of image sites to find the exact picture of a man with his sleeves rolled up in just that way. When I found this picture, my heart stopped and I knew it was perfect. Lorne always wore his shirts in just this way. xo

  27. I guess I'm in the minorit , I'm not a fan of the woman's blue face. I find it unnatural and other worldly.

    I loved your tribute to your late husband. What an honor to immortalize him as your hero!

    I'd love to visit Vancouver Island where you live. We were in Olympic National Park/Port Angeles, WA last September. Gorgeous area!
