Mrs. Chartwell and the Cat Burglar is a sweet, fun romantic mystery that made me very happy while I was reading it. Abigail and Tony investigate and banter and talk through both (all?) of their relationship issues as they work together to find the missing painting. Both of them examine who they are and who they want to be, together and apart, as they fall in love. I enjoyed the quiet aspects of this story as well as the fun investigation and mystery. It’s a cozy, uplifting read for anyone looking for good story to curl up with. Optional accessories: a cup of something warm and a cat in their lap.
Tony Russo, 32, is a thief who can quote Shakespeare! He tells Abigail that he is related to the famous artist, Antonio Russo. Tony needs/wants to borrow a map from the library. Why? (Maps are not allowed to be loaned out.) Tony believes that this one particular map will lead him to an old Russo painting hidden in the city. (Abigail has always believed the lost painting story to be a legend.) Apparently Tony is the descendant of an affair his great great grandmother had with Antonio. The missing painting is a picture of her and he wants to get it for his grandmother before she dies.
The above is an intro to a rather intriguing mystery and romance. Finding the hidden painting is not as simple as looking at the map. There are clues to be solved and danger abounds. Abigail holds a secret in her past and "drop-dead gorgeous" Tony has made a promise to himself that he would never trust a woman again. All that changes when he meets Abigail! As for Abigail, she finds herself caught up in not only solving the mystery but becoming part of Tony's criminal side. Why does she cover and lie for him? How will it all end?
If you are looking for realistic fiction, this is NOT for you. The story-line is way too far-fetched in places. Christianity does play a part in this book but is on the lighter side. I love the fact that there is NO bad language and NO sex scenes in this book - VERY clean. Yes, there is some kissing but that's as far as it goes. Characters do change and the love of Jesus, along with forgiveness, is shown. It is an easy read and one that will keep you wanting to find out how it ends. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher. That has not influenced my review. Thanks, Liz
