I am a big Kay Hooper fan and have read all of the Bishop-Special Crimes Unit Novels. I could not relate to the characters and I didn't find the storyline very believeable. I feel that the story is incomplete...maybe I was just missing the adventure that this book could have been. I will keep reading Kay Hooper novels but I hope future books are better than this.
A reprint of an earlier Loveswept release. Sweet and quick.
Troy is a cat burgler. She 'retrieves' stolen art objects for their rightful owners and donates her fees to charity. Dallas is a strait-laced, law-abiding businessman. He sees things in black and white. How in the world can these two reconcile their differences?
Wow, I'm not sure I miss the eighties, but this was definately a trip down memory lane. Overtones of women's rights and heroines who have it all: wealth, beauty, kind to kids and animals. I'm glad I'm not diabetic.
The only saving grace is Hooper's tight writing style. There are no awkward stumbles. She's got a story to tell, and she does so with her normal flair. Not an award winner by any means, but a good book to spend a couple of hours reading.
Early writing... a little dated, but still enjoyable. Troy Bennett has a unique outlook on justice, and takes a direct hand in dispensing it. She is caught in her latest attempt by Dallas Cameron, who is a guest of the man Troy is "stealing" from. Dallas has a strong sense of right and wrong, and cannot understand Troy's slightly twisted version at first. But, since he cannot get her off his mind, he decides it is better to get to know her and understand, than to simply write her off. Troy doesn't feel she has to justify her life to anyone, but is equally attracted to Dallas. So, she agrees, hesitantly to share her days with him.
I was disappointed in Hooper this time. Book is thin on plot, but fat on sexy episodes.
After reading my first, a very thrilling novel by Ms. Hooper I swapped for another. Alas I did not realize she writes romance "thrillers" as well. This was heavy on the sappy romance side and light on the thriller side. The back of the book is very heavy on the thriller side. Even the title had me fooled. So lesson learned, I need to read between the lines on the description for some authors.
Good, not one of my favorites but still very good.
Kay Hooper is always a good writer,this book is no exception.
