Reluctant Runaway by Jill Elizabeth Nelson and Aussie Giveaway

4 1/2 Stars

Security expert Desi Jacobs is back with the roar of a Harley and the cry of a baby, ringing in her ears!

Priceless Indian artifacts have been stolen from a museum protected by Desi's security company which has Desi travelling to New Mexico with her faithful assistant, Maxine Webb, whose niece has mysteriously disappeared leaving a distraught husband and beloved baby boy.

With the determination and curiosity that terrifies her FBI boyfriend, Tony Lucano, Desi soon finds herself embroiled with unsavory bikers, a heretical religion and a stand-off with Tony which has her doubting their relationship can ever survive.

Jill Elizabeth Nelson has outdone her first book in the To Catch A Thief series, intensifying the intrigue, action and attraction in a terrific sequel that will leave you exhausted and invigorated simultaneously!

The suspense is tight and entertaining keeping the reader constantly guessing as to many a characters' motive and loyalty. The developing relationship between Tony and Desi is fraught with tension due to issues of trust and dependency and enables the reader to understand the characters more fully ~ I was never sure whose side I was on in the game of romantic cat and mouse! Despite the significant entertainment value of this book, Jill blends deep spiritual truths that are both pertinent and challenging.

Reluctant Runaway is a wonderful read and I can't wait to see where Jill takes her characters, physically and spiritually in Reluctant Smuggler, releasing in October, 2007 by Multnomah.
