The Reluctant Burglar by Jill Elizabeth Nelson

The Reluctant Burglar by Jill Elizabeth Nelson reminded me of my favorite detective shows, Moonlighting and Remington Steele. Remember those?

Desiree Jacobs helps run a museum security company started by her father. When her father is murdered, a police detective—cute Italian, Tony Lucano—shows up to investigate, and it’s no secret that he believes her father was involved in something shady. But Desiree could never believe her father would do anything illegal, and she finds it hard to hide her resentment toward the man who seems bent on sullying her father’s good name.

The plot thickens when it seems that her father really did steal several priceless paintings. Desiree must somehow return the stolen paintings to their rightful owners and get to the bottom of what happened to her father before his killers get to her, all while fighting her attraction to the oh-so-irresistible Officer Lucano.

This book is a fun romp. Don’t miss it if you like light-hearted intrigue and romance.

I thought this was a great book...though the cover has never made sense to me. It just doesn't seem to match the story.

I guess my imagination overstepped this time! :-)
