This was one of my July reads and I loved it! Such a great story of mystery and intrigue.
Synopsis ~ Blue Steal by Marnie St. Clair
A witty, sexy and suspenseful story about a stolen necklace, a doomed hotel, and two people determined to get their hands on the jewels—at any cost.
Selina Migliore is smart and streetwise—with an ill sister and an elderly grandmother relying on her, she has to be. When fate hands her a chance to change her life, she’s determined to seize it. All she has to do is retrieve a long-lost sapphire necklace before the Empire Hotel is blown to smithereens. Nothing’s going to get in her way…
…except Jack Tierney, PI, who’s also on the hunt for the stolen jewelry. Jack is amused by his clashes with the pushy brunette, but as he continues to bump into Selina at strange times and in odd places, he starts to question who she is and what she’s doing at the Empire.
The pressure cooker really heats up when a new player enters the scene and it becomes apparent that Jack’s not the only one keeping an eye on Selina…
Dirty blond and dangerous.
Those were the first words that came to Selina as she shot a well-practiced smile at the man holding the door for her. Sexy-as-hell was a close second.
She swept past him, close enough to see the fliker of interest in his winter-blue eyes, close enough to feel the heat coming off him, and then she was inside. Back at the Empire for the first etime in over a decade. Her hotel, if nonna’s stories were to be believed. Her inheritance.
“The necklace and the ring form an incredibly valuable set known as the Petrovsky sapphires. Smuggled by the Petrovskys out of Imperial Russia over a hundred years ago.” [Loc 227]
He was admitting he had lied to the police. He had invited her to confess in him earlier. [Loc 1086]
