Perfect Touch by Elizabeth Lowell
Published by HarperCollins Genres: Suspense
After his father’s death, Jay Vermillion retires from the military and returns home to restore his family’s legacy, Vermilion Ranch. First he must deal with his father’s ex-wife and his half-brother in a nasty court battle over paintings that belonged to his late father.
As the proud owner of Perfect Touch, Sara Medina is determined to make a name for herself in the art world. So when Jay hires her to provide her expertise to value on his family’s well-known collection of paintings in an attempt to settle an ongoing court case with his ex-stepmother, Sara is all too happy to take on the challenge.
Jay and Sara worlds are about to turn upside down after a double murder occurs as a result of searching for the most prized missing painting in the collection. Then, evil decides to turns its sights to Sara.
Will Jay be able to keep Sara out of harm’s way before she becomes the next victim? But, more importantly, will Jay and Sara succumb to burning passion brewing between them.
Perfect Touch is a wonderful mixture of sweet romance and thrilling suspense. From the very beginning I could tell that this was going to be an enjoyable read. While I had my suspicions as to whom the villains were. Elizabeth Lowell adds in a few surprises that threw me for a loop because I never suspected them. Perfect Touch is a spine-tingling mystery. Jay and Sara are very likable characters and it was easy to see how they were instantly drawn to each other. The couple’s courtship is complicated by the double murder, the killer’s relentless pursuit, and Jay’s ex-stepmother and half-brother’s scheming acts. Nevertheless, Jay and Sara wondrously find a way to make their relationship work. The sexual encounters are filled with passion and intensity. The plot is thick with a murder mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. Perfect Touch is a fantastic read.
