I'm a wanted jewel thief.
What's that saying? Keep your friends close...and your husband closer.
Being a retired jewel thief certainly has its perks.
1. Oh, wait.
2. No it doesn't.
Without the thrill of the chase, life's been pretty dull. I garden, I drive my gorgeous husband up the wall, and I watch as my old world slowly slips away. But what's that old saying? When one thief closes the door...a copycat jimmies open a window.
And now all fingers at the FBI are pointed at me.
Set up to take the fall for thefts worth millions, I have no choice but to strap on my heels and help my FBI agent husband track the thief. Grant might not think he needs a partner, but this is one case only a true professional can solve. Besides, I've got to know who's been taking my bad name in vain.
Let's just hope curiosity doesn't kill the cat burglar.
This is the second book in the Penelope Blue series by Tamara Morgan.
I had a hard time getting into this book. The point of view kept changing from chapter to chapter and there were two characters with similar C names that I confused them here and there through the story.
Overall the story was pretty good but there were a heck of a lot of people in this and not too many were that well developed. Since I didn’t read book one, I knew I was missing a whole chunk of backstory and got little reminders as I read through the plot points.
The mystery was nice and the red herrings where all well placed but there was just something about this that did not resonate with me. I don’t think I will be continuing on with the series. Just not my style. I think the thing I had the hardest time with was that Penelope didn’t want to turn her life away from being a thief. She was okay with it and that is not something I want to focus on in my life at this time.
