Heath Parker knows Marvin Carter is a bad egg, but the FBI doesn't send out its agents to search for a low-life con-man with a thing for blondes. What it does send out its agents for is to recover stolen paintings worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars. And paintings like that aren't in Carter's league. Heath needs to watch out, though, because his chief suspect, spunky Brenna Thompson, is working his way into his heart.
Heath uses the investigation of Marvin to work his way into Brenna's confidence, not knowing he might just work his way into her bed as well. The more he learns about the spitfire blonde, the harder he finds it to believe that she would really have stolen her parents' paintings. Still, the evidence seems unshakable and Heath has been burned before.
Author Kara Lennox delivers another funny and sexy installment in her 'Blond Justice' series. Marvin can run, but he can't hide with the three intrepid blondes after him. Unfortunately for the women, it turns out that the men they count on for support and backup need a fair amount of training before they can really be of much assistance. Then again, that is half the fun.
However, upon interviewing Brenna, Heath begins to believe she is an injured party not a culprit though he worries that his attraction to her might be tainting his judgment and besides which he does not trust women in general as they always betray their men. Still in spite of his efforts he cannot resist seeing Brenna even as both separately chase after the vanished con man, who inadvertently has played matchmaker.
The second Blond Justice amateur sleuth romance (see HOMETOWN HONEY) is a wonderful tale starring two likable protagonists who do not trust one another. Brenna expects Heath and Pete to vanish like other Feds did as there are no murders only three dumb blondes fleeced. As Brenna and Heath fall in love, he knows his lies will come back to bite him while she remains doubtful that an agent would work her nonentity case.
