Publisher's Summary

When Nikki Lanier signs up as a cosmetics rep at Carrie Mae, it's hardly her idea of a dream job. With a degree in linguistics and a hard-core workout regimen, the 26-year-old redhead once had hopes for a real career. But unemployed and desperate to escape life at home with her nagging mother, she'll try anything - even selling make-up to housewives. But soon, Nikki learns that the powder and lipstick are simply cover-up for The Carrie Mae Foundation: a secret organization of international espionage and high-tech mascara founded for the purpose of "helping women everywhere."
Whisked off to Thailand with her appointed partner, the legendary Carrie Mae agent Val Robinson, Nikki is soon in over her head. Between investigating the abduction of a human rights advocate, tracking down a murderous arms dealer, keeping up with her wildly dangerous new partner, and occasionally trying to have a dating life (with a hunk who may or may not be CIA), Nikki has to use all the courage and cosmetic technology she's got to bring down the bad guys and get out alive.
With the support of the colorful Carrie Mae crew, a handsome yet suspicious stranger, and her wickedly unpredictable partner, Nikki will overcome even the most harrowing obstacles - including incessant phone calls from her mother - or die trying.

Annoyingly happy American voice = unconvincing

Maybe it was just the voice, if it wasn't for that then maybe I would have sympathised with all the bad stuff that she got mixed up in. But even then, she gets so stressed (but sounds happy still, like she's treating it as a joke, like barbie in Toy Story) even when everything is not really that bad.
She says some silly things and she's completely gullible in practically every way. I'd love to yank her by the hair and take her place in the spy world, because honestly I don't think she'll be a very good spy in the long run.
