While charities abound around the world in an effort to ease suffering, they are often the target of those whose scruples make them feel that anything is up for grabs. Embezzlement is often the crime of chance and circumstance, where those most in need become the final victims once again.
In Stealing the Moon & Stars, we are introduced to a pair of private eyes based in Scottsdale Arizona. Jordan Welsh and Eddie Marino have teamed up and are beginning to make a name for themselves. As business improves, the cases are becoming more dangerous, but the importance of the business also becomes more evident. When they are hired to find out what has happened to the money for the Moon and Stars Children’s foundation they feel as though they have finally hit mainstream.
Everyone is a suspect including those working the charity, and as Jordan begins to dig in deeper, she finds she is suddenly in the sights of a crime lord — and bodies around her begin to pile up. Her partner is somehow in the middle with a secret of his own. As the danger of her situation comes clear she no longer knows who to trust. Can she ferret out the secrets before it is too late?
Jordan and Eddie are great characters with an interplay that is just short of scandalous. The heat of passion that evolves as they chase the danger seems palpable. Jordan is a strong woman with a wickedly funny sense of humor, and Eddie is a fun and deeply secretive and good looking man. With such chemistry, Jordan finds herself constantly reminding herself of the danger of becoming involved.
That attraction which seems to flare up can also create more danger and as their investigation heats up, danger is more prevalent then they know.
