THE STEAL – C.W. Gortner and M.J. Rose (Released August 10th, 2021)
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend—until they’re stolen.
Ania Throne is devoted to her jewelry company. The daughter of one of the world’s most famous jewelers, she arrives in Cannes with a stunning new collection. But a shocking theft by the notorious thief known as the Leopard throws her into upheaval—and plunges her on an unexpected hunt that challenges everything she believes.
Jerome Curtis thinks he’s seen it all, especially when it comes to crime. Until he’s hired to investigate the loss of Ania Thorne’s collection, his every skill put to the test as he chases after a mysterious master-mind responsible for some of the costliest heists in history—and finds himself in a tangled web with a woman he really shouldn’t fall in love with.
From the fabled Carlton Hotel to the elegant boulevards of Paris, Ania and Jerome must race against time to catch a thief before the thief catches them. With everything on the line, can they solve the steal or will the steal take more than diamonds from them?
Set in the late 1950s, THE STEAL is a romantic caper by bestselling authors C.W. Gortner and M.J. Rose
Mini Review – 4/5 stars
This was a quick little mystery read! A good mix of historical fiction, mystery, and some romance, THE STEAL is just under 200 pages and is such an easy read. Perfect amount of information to set the scene and create the atmosphere. We got a good feel for the characters considering the small page count. It looks like this might be part of a series, so hopefully there is more on the way!
