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
SAVING MR. PERFECT, by Tamara Morgan is the second novel in the Penelope Blue series about a thief who married an FBI agent. Filled with humor, snark and a string of burglaries Morgan had me flipping the pages, laughing aloud and enjoying this quirky cast of characters.
The Penelope Blue series is best read in order, so for those who haven’t read it, I suggest picking up book one, STEALING MR. RIGHT. Penelope and her crew are considered among the best in the business, which isn’t surprising considering who her father is. Penelope’s days as a cat burglar are in the past now that she is married to sexy FBI agent, Grant Emerson.
When a thief dubbed “the peek-a-boo” robber begins robbing homes of the elite and evading the FBI, Penelope fears her husband suspects her. Penelope is bored. She is trying the whole “normal” thing, but cannot help getting involved in the investigation. What follows is a story filled with danger, humor, and plenty of red herrings.
Penelope is a hoot. She is a combination of incredible smarts, insecurities, and good intentions. While admittedly she makes me a tad crazy, one cannot help but become caught up in her enthusiasm. Grant doesn’t want her involved in the case at all, especially when an FBI agent with a dubious career weaves his way onto the case.
Morgan gave us plenty of suspects including Penelope’s former crew/friends and stepmother. It was an interesting case and placed Penelope in a lot of new and awkward situations as she tries to assist her husband and complicated things in the process.
Since our couple is married, the romance is served as a side dish, and we witness them grow as a couple, share some heated kisses and make each other crazy. I liked their chemistry and appreciated the give and take between them. Poor Penelope is looking for a way to stay on this side of the law and still have an adventure. I like the direction the series is taking and look forward to seeing Penelope find her niche.
Suspense, relationship growth, humor, and comradery can all be found within the pages of SAVING MR. PERFECT. Fans of mystery, snark and quirky characters will enjoy the Penelope Blue series. It is a refreshing mix of genres.Saving Mr. Perfect by Tamara Morgan delivered snark, humor, and mystery Click To Tweet
