It Takes a Thief by Jean Louise

She's just having a drink at the local bar and doesn't want anyone to bother her.  Especially not the guy sitting next to her.  However, he won't take the hint.  And when she tries to walk, he calls her by her real name...

Goddess Fish Blog Tour and the author graciously allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  You can buy it wherever ebooks are sold.

Thieves fascinate me.  Maybe because I'm uncomfortable around people I don't know and I'm a bit clumsy so there's no way I could pull it off.  I do find them fun to read about as long as they're fictional.  In this case, the thief is not really a thief.  She returns the items she lifts.  She does it to keep her hand in it and increase her skills.  What she didn't expect was that a security guard from her past would look up her again and ask her to use those skills!

Angelina Carr (Gina for short) goes by a lot of different names and likes her freedom.  But she also likes a challenge and the feeling of adrenalin running through her body.  When Nick Aston explains how a financial management firm was milking their customers and how he wanted to make it right, she's interested.  He's a corporate security specialist and has inside knowledge on how that side works.  With her talents and his, he intends to make it right.

The problem arises when they get the info and find out there's another player involved.  The small scale crime operator has been infiltrated by a big crime boss.  Now there's even more danger in getting involved.  But they don't stop...

I enjoyed the action, the fast pace of the story and the budding romance.  I'm hoping to read more in this series.  I don't think Nick and Gina are done yet.  They're hoping for more cases!

Jo Ann (aka The Book Faerie), thanks so much for hosting this tour, and thanks also for your kind words about It Takes a Thief. I'm like you... I don't have the nerve to pull off what a thief or pickpocket does. Which is why it was so much fun to write about Gina! If you or any readers have any questions about the book, please ask them here and I'll stop back by for answers. Happy reading, everyone!
