RELUCTANT BURGLAR

Desiree Jacobs works with her father, Hiram, in art security, until he's murdered. In trying to discover who wanted him dead, Desi pulls herself together.

The FBI, including tenacious special agent Tony Lucano, has long suspected Hiram, and Desi by association, of involvement with black-market art thievery. Desi believes her father innocent, until she discovers some stolen art. But things might not be what they seem. Should she return the pieces to their owners, or will that ruin her father's name? Who can she trust?

Former RT reviewer Nelson's debut is fantastic! Suspense, romance and humor blend together to provide exquisite entertainment. The sophisticated plot takes readers into the intriguing world of high-end art, and highly relevant issues of God's control versus our control are addressed as an integral part of the story.
