Enjoy our next snippet from The Heist. This excerpt immediately follows his thought so much for a repeat hug from last week.
He shook her hand, giving it an extra squeeze. “Is it always this hot in Lincoln?”
“In early August? Most of the time – I recall it getting quite hot in Chicago, too. Do you need to stop for luggage?”
“You’re right, it does.” He gripped his carry-on bag and briefcase tighter. “This is it – I travel light whenever possible.”
“Good idea. Let’s go, then – it’ll take another hour and a half to get to Elk Grove.”
“That’s fine with me. We’ll have an opportunity to get reacquainted.”
She gave him a sharp look before lengthening her stride and heading for the exit. “I didn’t realize we were acquainted.”
A Heist? A Murder?
It’s villain’s choice.
A special-order art theft? Tedious, but seamless – until small town museum director Kara Daniels calls in the experts. Furious her favorite trio of priceless impressionist paintings has been stolen from its traveling exhibit on her watch, Kara is determined to save not only the paintings, but her future in the art world. She’ll stop at nothing to entrap the thief.
Ted Springs knows the underbelly of the criminal world a little closer than he might like—but he’s turned it to good advantage, first as a police officer, and now as detective for the Upper Midwest Arts Council. His job? To guarantee the security of the valuable paintings in the Council’s traveling exhibits.
Heat sizzles when Ted and Kara collide—can they work together, before it’s too late?
