A Magnificent Crime

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): Cat Montgomery is a natural-born thief with a special talent for stealth--or at least she thought so. Years ago, she stole from the diamond-hording businessman Albert Faulkner III, but he somehow figured out she was responsible. Now he wants revenge, and dares her to swipe the elusive Hope Diamond. If she fails the mission, he'll wreak bloody havoc on her loved ones. But the stakes are raised even higher when Cat discovers that stealing the Hope is not only an impossible task, it's a cursed one. . .

Meanwhile, Cat's boyfriend, FBI agent Jack Barlow, is tracking a fierce criminal known as the Gargoyle, running into Interpol and resistance among his agency. As he follows the trail to Paris, where Cat is, their missions entwine in ways neither of them would have suspected. . .

One (or more) Sentence Summary: I was so excited to be able to read all about Cat's new adventure (can't wait for the next one).  Filled with twists, turns, foul play, good people, evil people, high society mixed with the average joe and so much more.  Let's not forget to mention the two gorgeous men who want her.  It is driving me crazy who she ends up with….Jack, Ethan, Jack, Ethan…..ergh!

Favorite Character(s):  I absolutely love Cat, but I am so torn between Jack and Ethan.  Good boy vs. bad boy.  Erghhh, which one.

Setting:  Paris - Ooh La La!!

Fast read/slow read:  Very fast read

Cover:  It works!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I would and I did!  Check out my review on the first Agency of Burglary & Theft book, A Beautiful Heist.

Kim Foster is the author of the Agency of Burglary & Theft Series, a series of novels about a professional female jewel thief. Kim has a typical background for someone who writes thrillers about thieves and spies and criminals: she has a degree in medicine and is a practicing family doctor. (Don't worry, it doesn't make much sense to her friends and family, either.) 

Kim is addicted to yoga, loves to travel, and has a clinical weakness for dark chocolate with sea salt. Online, you can find her blogging about her left-brain, right-brain mash-up on Kim lives with her husband and their two young sons in Victoria, British Columbia, where she's hard at work on her next book. And drinking a ridiculous amount of coffee.
