The Spy Within (Meet Abby Banks #2) by J.A. Cipriano

The Spy Within (Meet Abby Banks, #2)
Some people don't believe in government conspiracies. They're wrong. 
When sixteen-year-old Abby Banks escaped from the clutches of her terrorist mother, she thought she was home free... and she would have been if the government agency tasked with protecting her hadn't decided she was worth more dead than alive.
Now the only thing standing between Abby and freedom is the agency that kidnapped her as a young girl.
No big deal, right?
I read the first book in this series, May Contain Spies, about a year ago and enjoyed it. I was sent the sequel, but it kind of got buried under school work, a new job, and a crazy long list of other things. So, when I finally picked up book #2 of the Meet Abby Banks series, I was upset at myself for waiting so long to see what happened. 

The series started out well.  The first book was really well-written, but sometimes this book seems a little bit busy. There are a lot of moving parts to it. While it's not necessarily hard to follow, I think more could be added to make everything flow a little better. 

I'm not sure how I felt about the end of this book. With everything else going on, the plot that was the focus of the ending didn't seem like it was really a big deal in the context of the whole book. I feel like it would have been better to with more focus on that aspect of the story, leading up to the end.

Overall, this book was alright. The first was better, but this was worth the read, and I'm definitely going to keep going and read the third book, to see what happens to Abby, next.

I'll update in a couple of days and let you know how book #3 goes.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
