spoiler so I won't and have spoken to the author to have it changed.
Garrison is a retired CIA agent trying to find his place at home with
his wife and adult dependant son. After being gone more often than not
he has missed a huge chunk of Noah's life and the challenges Louisa has
had to deal with. When tragedy strikes Garrison must find a way to step
up to the mark and take care of all of Noah's needs.
The story gives us some insight into the person Garrison is through
his CIA stories, his memories of his early days with his wife and how

of his son and the obsticles they face together. The CIA keeps popping
up despite Garrison being retired which links in with the CIA side of
The CIA part was fine (it dragged a bit as I was more interested in
the family side of it) however for me the story was about the love for
Noah and their relationship, Garrison and Louisa's relationship and
their life together. There are a few twists in the book that I didn't

his memories of how he sees things and his life over time until present
There are a few sides to this story and I think there is something
for everyone in this book. I really liked it, found it pretty easy to
read and Noah's story is on ethat just touches your heart. 4/5 for me and you can buy this on amazon for only £1.43 http://www.amazon.co.uk/A-SPY-AT-HOME-eb...
