When two people on opposite sides of the law are thrown together by unconventional circumstances in New York City’s Diamond District, it's revealed that all that glitters is not gold. Jewel thieves, an FBI agent and a bad girl gone good make Heather Graham’s Flawless a fun romantic suspense complemented by an action-packed heist.
Kieran Finnegan has righted her wrongs, left behind her family’s habit of getting into trouble and acquired a criminal psychology degree. But as much as she’s changed, she finds that she can’t just turn her back on her brothers, especially when one of them has stolen a rather expensive diamond. Kieran does what any sister would do: She plans to “unsteal” the gem and put it back where it belongs.
FBI Agent Craig Frasier is in town investigating a string of jewelry robberies when he finds himself right in the middle of one, along with Kieran. While he’s trying to catch the individuals responsible, Kieran is trying to keep her brother’s name out of it. But when Frasier makes a connection between the robberies and the Finnegan’s family pub, Kieran’s involvement in Craig’s case gets a little more complicated than she planned.
Watching Kieran and Craig work together is really the highlight of Flawless. Though there is plenty of adventure, the romance is more of a slow burn as Kieran and Craig learn about one another, but when tensions run high as danger increases, the two find that they might be destined for more than just a working relationship. The cat-and-mouse game isn’t reserved for catching bad guys!
With plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing, the mystery at the heart of Flawless is sure to remind readers of Pink Panther-esque capers and whodunnits. As Craig grows closer to identifying the suspects stealing diamonds, Kieran worries that when her relation to the Finnegan family is revealed, he will see it as the ultimate betrayal. With a cast of memorable coworkers and family members, readers will most likely be crossing their fingers that the rest of the Finnegan clan will each get their own romances as full of action and suspense as this one.
