Brilliant, quirky twenty-three-year-old China Mack is totally satisfied with her carefully ordered, data-driven life. A computer prodigy who landed a coveted programming job at the cutting-edge tech company Cysnet before even graduating from MIT, China is happiest when following her routine: shower before coffee, pizza only on Mondays, bedtime at ten thirty sharp.
But then things start to get a little…unpredictable.
First Jackson Cooper—Cysnet’s rich, gorgeous, genius CEO—assigns China to a dangerous and highly classified project for a government defense contractor. Her sixteen-year-old runaway niece suddenly arrives in town, begging to move in with China. And then there’s her sexy but oddly unsettling new neighbor, Clark…
Quickly the Cysnet assignment becomes disconcerting—and then downright scary—as key staffers turn up dead. China suspects she’s being followed and isn’t sure whom she can trust. For the first time ever, she’ll have to follow her instincts, rather than logic, if she’s going to survive.

I really like China Mack. She is brilliant but ranks really low on social skills. I am sure that she would show up on the autism scale but I feel that a good part of her social ineptness is the fact that she just isn't sure how to communicate with 'normal' people. Actually she reminds me of friends and people I have met at various cons. Luckily she has her niece Mia to help her navigate the world of dating.
The characters in this book are all well developed. Both Clark and Jackson are men that I wouldn't have minded meeting when I was single. Oh and much younger. Still I get the chance to know them thru Ms. Snow's deft touch with her characters.
I do recommend FOLLOW ME to any of my readers who enjoy a well written romantic suspense set in the world of corporations, governments and terrorists. I am really crossing my fingers that this is only the first book in China's story.
