A robbery followed by the discovery of a forgery at a respected art gallery thrusts Chelsea Owens into the center of an investigation headed by Detective Sam Eldridge. The instant chemistry between the high-spirited aspiring curator and the tall, dark, brooding cop is a classic case of opposites attract.
Complications arise when Chelsea uncovers a connection to an art heist that has eluded the FBI for over a quarter of a century. Teaming up with Sam to find the stolen paintings valued in the tens of millions of dollars ignites feelings that could lead to lasting love. But Sam isn’t ready to move beyond the tragedy in his past, no matter how promising his future with Chelsea could be…
When spontaneous but compassionate Chelsea Owens bursts into the middle of a crime scene, Detective Sam Eldridge is suspicious. For about five minutes.
The intelligent, outgoing woman interests him in a way no one has in a long time, but he has more pressing matters to attend to. There’s something unusual happening in Camden Falls, and too few leads to follow in his opinion. First a break-in at a jewelry store followed by a forgery at the art gallery. What is going on? And how are the two connected?
Sam and Chelsea aren’t the most perfect match on paper. She loves people, he prefers peace and quiet. She’s enthusiastic about art, his tastes run toward the simplistic. Most importantly, Chelsea has dreams Sam can’t give her.
But sometimes the heart doesn’t care about the hard facts, and that’s one of the things that makes A Priceless Find so enjoyable. That and the way Kate James keeps readers guessing as to who is behind the crimes while leading all on a merry chase—complete with a suspicious warehouse and ties to twenty-five-year-old unsolved art heist.
Another wonderful read from Kate James (and I hope to visit Camden Falls again in future books)
