Follow the Money


Stealing the Moon and the Stars by Sally J. Smith and Jean Steffens is labeled a romantic suspense.  That is a true description.  The main character, Jordan is a beautiful, young, femme fatale.  She’s rich.  She’s smart.  She’s also a detective.  And that’s where the story starts.  The client is a non-profit organization called “Stealing the Moon and the Stars.”  The organization tries to give dying children the “moon and the stars.”  Over eight hundred thousand dollars was stolen and Jordan, along with her partner, Eddie Marino, are hired to find the money.

What’s different about this detective story is that Jordan isn’t your typical dirty raincoat, cigarette hanging from the mouth, detective.  She’s 5’10” of gorgeousness.  Her partner, Eddie is “definitely hot stuff.”  The sexual pull between these two is powerful.  Trying to get these two together was woven in between the trails left by the perpetrators.  The reader is led to think the foundation employees are taking from the till, until a mob boss gets involved. 

Solving the crime is the story.  Jordan and Eddie’s romantic attraction is also a story.  Jordan’s wardrobe and her fashion sense were an interesting addition.  Jordan will plan her wardrobe to her client, or her daily agenda.  If she’s meeting a short client, then no heels.  If she thinks her investigation will lead to a quick exit, then no heels.  If she’s trying to impress, then she’d slip on her Jimmy Choo kitten heels.  This fashion addition was fun, and fit the story.

Stealing the Moon and the Stars, looks like an introduction to a series of Jordan Welsh and Eddie Marino crime stories.  I hope so.  I want to see what Jordan wears next.  I received a free copy of Stealing the Moon and the Stars by Sally J. Smith and Jean Steffens from Tribute Books.  Even so, this review is my honest evaluation.  No compensation was received for this review.
