Synopsis: In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she’s ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she’s out of her league–and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he’s the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.
Crackling with romantic tension and laced with intrigue, this suspenseful story from award-winning author Patricia Bradley will keep readers guessing–and looking over their shoulders.
My Thoughts: This book started out with a bang! From the first page, I was glued to the story and on the edge of my seat. The main character, Kelsey, is skilled at entering buildings in non-traditional ways and the story opens as she is doing this.
The mystery was complex and kept me guessing, I had a slight inkling of the villain but was surprised when the revelations occurred.
I also loved the setting of a museum, there’s something mysterious about that setting and the author did a good job at making me feel like I was walking down the halls of the Pink Palace Museum beside Brad and Kelsey.
This book was light on romance, which I liked but the romance that did occur was sweet.
Overall, this was a great suspense story that was enjoyable but dragged a bit in the middle. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!
I received this book from the publisher to review.
