Naturally, I couldn't wait for Saving Mr. Perfect to come out. I wasn't disappointed. I was laughing within minutes, and had to put the book down so my husband could sleep. This book is different though. It's more heartfelt and not as crazy. Don't read this book for the romance. Read it for the laughs, the banter and a bit of a crazy mystery. Don't start with Saving Mr. Perfect. Start with Stealing Mr. Right. Relationship growth is a big plotline in this book and you have to understand Penelope's relationships with people in the first book to see how they've changed (and how devastating it is).
I think people that enjoyed the early Stephanie Plum books will feel right at home with Penelope Blue.
I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.
Trying to make her marriage work, Penelope has retired from stealing, but it's not working. She's restless, itchy, bored, and unhappy. And to top it off, she's sure that she's a suspect in a string of recent jewelry heists. She enlists her old crew to help her determine what evidence the FBI has on her. And the story gets complicated from there/
As you would imagine, Penelope and Grant have a complicated relationship. Part of her appeal for him was the joy and sass she radiated as a thief but those have dimmed. And her being a jewel thief, even a retired one, causes him no end of problems at the FBI. But he doesn't care because he lover her more than he loves his job, and that's saying something.
Saving Mr. Right is a heist story, a romance, a relationship story, and a good time. Penelope and Grant spend much of the story trying to figure out their marriage and how to make it work. Each wants the other to be happy; the question is can they be happy and be married to each other. In the midst of this, Penelope is dealing with changing relationships with her friends and former teammates, and a myriad of familial complications. Grant meanwhile is trying to divert the FBI's attention from Penelope while trying to solve the jewelry heists and deal with an incompetent and annoying supervisor. There were times Penelope's paranoia and insecurities as well as her and Grant's failure to communicate were too much and were just annoying or frustrating but that's how real Morgan made her. Morgan deftly wove the various threads and plot lines together into a story that both entertained and illuminated; she had a good grasp the ever-changing nature of relationships and the challenges of family. But the story wasn't all doom and gloom; there was lots of snarky and laugh out loud humor, some steamy scenes between Penelope and Grant, character growth and change, and several surprises. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book and the repercussions of the events in this book.

As the second in the author's Penelope Blue series the hilarious characters are back and up to their old tricks. This fast, fun caper can be read by itself but once you start you want to read the first book right after!
Poor Pen is bored, bored, Bored! Pen used to be an infamous thief. But no more breaking the law or planning jewel heists to keep her agile body and mind nimble. It was the end of the beginning when she married her sexy FBI husband and promised to be on the straight and narrow. It wasn't enough that she is out of a job but now her loving husband seems distracted and upset. And Pen thinks she knows why There are mysterious robberies by someone only known as the Peep-Toe Prowler. The problem? Those robberies are very similar to her style. Is Grant trying to protect her or does he think she is back to her old tricks? Pen is determined to find out and remove all those worried frowns from his darling face. But that means bending the law just a little and maybe breaking into the FBI, too.
Pen is fun and feisty. Being in retirement doesn't suit her at all. Although she loves her husband Grant she is getting a little restless and helping him is her top priority. She misses her old gang and I loved reading her get back together with them and their old camaraderie. In fact, I missed her gang of friends as much as she did. Sly, devious Riker, the immutable Oz and the fire cracker Jordan. In addition, this book gives glimpses into Pen's ultra sexy husband Grant. In the first book Grant is inscrutable and completely and even annoyingly competent. It was a fresh change to read his point of view. Seeing he has insecurities of his own made him even more loveable. Plus Pen and Grant still have the undefinable chemistry even as a married couple. I hope the authors plans on many more books in the series!
