An old crime

and an irresistible new lead…

When her wealthy art dealer father died, Heather James was expecting a fortune. Instead, his bank account was empty and Heather’s working in a bakery, wondering exactly what happened to her father’s millions…until someone tries to kill her.

Tony Simons is on the trail of an art theft cold case that’s practically giving him frostbite. He’s hoping that by sticking close to Heather—the daughter of his deceased prime suspect—he’ll find the answers he needs. Instead, he’s finding himself distracted by a gorgeous woman who drives him crazy in every way imaginable…

Now Tony’s in serious trouble. Even if Heather can’t—or won’t—tell him where the stolen paintings and money are, she may well have stolen his heart.
And now someone wants her dead…


Portrait of a Girl is a wonderful and engaging thriller-suspense full of more twists and turns that a roller coaster. 

Heather, is left struggling after the death of her father. Receiving nothing except for his estate, she is left wondering where all his money disappeared to. 

As she works in a bakery to support herself, she rents out her father's estate and her newest tenant is Tony, a man who isn't what he claims to be.

Instead he is an agent whose job is to get close to Heather.

Needless to say this leads to complications between Heather and Tony along with all the other twists and turns this book takes. 

I really enjoyed both Heather and Tony's characters. A part of me was surprised I found myself liking Tony so much when I felt so truly awful for Heather when she finds out the truth about who Tony is and what his job was.

I was captivated by this thrilling suspense and I really wanted more. I wish the author would have provided an epilogue because I really wanted to know what Heather and Tony were up to after the book ended. 

I loved this book and thought this new to me author's writing style was fantastic.
