Can opposites really attract?
A robbery followed by the discovery of a forgery at a respected art gallery thrusts Chelsea Owens into the center of an investigation headed by Detective Sam Eldridge. The instant chemistry between the high-spirited aspiring curator and the tall, dark, brooding cop is a classic case of opposites attract.
Complications arise when Chelsea uncovers a connection to an unsolved art heist. Teaming up with Sam to find the stolen paintings ignites feelings that could lead to lasting love. But Sam isn’t ready to move beyond the tragedy in his past, no matter how promising his future with Chelsea could be…
MY REVIEW (LAWonder10):
Chelsea Owens loved what she did for a living. She had been training as Curator under the current one who soon would be retiring. Chelsea absorbed all the knowledge she could through her aspiration to be the new Curator. Therefore, she had no time for relationships, and spent very little time with her cat.
Going to work particularly early one day, she was startled to see blinking emergency lights in front of the plaza she worked in On closer speculation, she realized it was not her Art Gallery but the next door Jewelry Shop which had the police yellow banner to stop traffic from going any further. This shop was owned by an older couple very dear to her. Disregarding the yellow tape, rushing by before the police offer could stop her, she found Mr. Rochester on the floor injured. At the elderly man’s request the police allowed her to stay .
The detective was fairly new in the area. He had transferred in from the big city, then had lost all the reasons he had moved to this small area. Sam was determined he would stay here and make it his permanent home, anyway. This new crime had him confused. It was conflictingly amateurish and professional at the same time. Nothing fit! The place was trashed, petty money stolen but the expensive stuff left. The man’s injury could have been fatal but it wasn’t.
Now, every direction he turned, Chelsea was there. Could she be a person of interest? She was another confliction. She was unlike anyone he had met. He felt drawn to her, but after his devastation in the past two years, he wasn’t ready to consider a new relationship. Besides, they were opposites with nothing in common except their curiosities.
The conflicting turn of events in this story, keeps the reader captivated. There is action, a touch of romance, humor, mystery, suspense and intrigue within the pages of this book.
As always, Kate James does a magnificent job in creating characters the reader feels he/she knows and scenes portrayed so well, the reader will feel he/she is actually there. With the various elements of subject matter in A Priceless Find, this is one of her best creations in the literary world. The reader is kept hoping for a “happily ever after” but unsure of the outcome until the end of the tale.
This definitely earns a Five Stars rating.
*This book was sent to me as a gift. I was not required to offer a positive review. This is my honest review.
