Saving Mr. Perfect (Penelope Blue #2) by Tamara Morgan

Saving Mr. Perfect

(Penelope Blue #2)

by Tamara Morgan


Paperback, 416 pages

Published August 1st 2017 by Sourcebooks Casablanca






Goodreads synopsis: 

I'm a wanted jewel thief.

He's FBI.

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.

3 stars


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.
