I am so happy to be back with Grace and her investigations! I’ve read the previous two books in this series, and this one lives up to the previous two! While the series is fantastic, if you want to read this as a stand-alone, you absolutely can.
Grace is not an investigator by trade, but she certain is great at it, and she seems to always find herself in a situation where she gets to put her skills to use! In this story, Grace’s father is involved in the theft of a Russian artifact. There’s an abduction of his wife as well as the murder of an actress, and it’s all just a lot for Grace!
But like always, Grace rises to the occasion, and provides the reader with a fantastic journey filled with mystery and exciting action. There were surprising moments that I didn’t see coming, and I enjoyed the way the story unfolded. Bovee did a great job with this one!
