dear Amanda, always something..., 4 June 2014
Author: jtsjtssmokey-703-366973 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Done well with the "past" story fitting the "present" almost seamlessly. Her "entrance", with who do you want, Richie or Mac, course its Mac, and he really "knows how to get a girl off her feet". Mac grumbling about the espresso/coffee machine and spilling it all over while she "sizes" up his place, suits him but she not to get used to it. Course she also tries and make it seem its been longer since they saw one another, an well she always seems to "betray" him, though sometimes, well a few anyways, not on purpose., but well we learned, told Tessa that she made him laugh when there was not much to laugh about, hmmm give her a pass, but he does have more on her than anyone knows, but we have to wait till end of series to learn this.

Cute "seduction" well she tried anyway as he wonders where she was going to stay, says and has a place but didn't think was needed (well guess she assumed wrong this round). The bad guys after her, not immortal, but that too not unusual for her, but not watchers as Mac at first thought. FBI well ya but not good guys, they want what Amanda got in the past story that also involved Mac and him getting someone out of Germany (WW2 and Hitler major bad) and in in that part of the story learned Amanda and Mac both could fly a plane. Stole real plates to print money from some one while performing, and boy for the era was risqué, but suited her, poor guy got nothing not even a kiss before some others bad (?) ones, came to get the guy, and the guy was killed and she was told to sing.

Mac expects sharks to bite, and Amanda to be well Amanda, though her heart tries to be in right place, sorta this time. You don't have a mother as she don't know them, course he got shot, he will live.

Past story, thought was part of story when Mac on bike with sidecar went off the road was part of story, but found out on commentary was not, but it worked. And Amanda's I'll not forget this as he has given her his seat on the 2 seater, his kiss and yes you will.

Love the way they set up the bad FBI, though the rest of the good cops can not figure out where and what happen to the bodies, as they know this bad cop would and did shoot to kill and so point blank, well guess the bodies caught some real swift unexplained current out so may may never be found, hmmm wonder what they would think about them walking and talking an living still or again, immortal unless head removed, hmm then the few headless bodies explained that didn't disappear (buried by the one who won or watchers or well never completely told).

Amanda does love Mac and he her...though very diff than Tessa...again the seduction, but this time its Mac, the plane will be there in the morning.
