The Reluctant Smuggler, the third installment in Jill Elizabeth Nelson’s To Catch A Thief series, takes the reader from the snow covered landscape of Boston to the tropical jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula, to archaeological digs.
While trying to find flaws in the Mexican museum’s security system, Desiree Jacobs finds herself chased and the false artifact she carries stolen. Back in Boston, her fiancée, FBI agent Tony Lucano is almost killed during a raid and lies in a coma. Page turning thrills and suspense tie these two incidents together and threaten to jeopardize Desi’s and Tony’s upcoming wedding.
In The Reluctant Smuggler, Jill Elizabeth Nelson digs deeper in Desi’s and Tony’s love for each other, the dangers of crime-solving and protecting precious antiquities, and shows us the strength of true-love. The Reluctant Smuggler was my favorite of the three books in the To Catch a Thief Series. Full of romance, danger, suspense and God’s sovereignty. I’m looking forward to more adventures written by Jill Elizabeth Nelson.
