Hey everyone! Today I have a stunning read for you today!
Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy
The Fowler Sisters:
Lily is the oldest of the three the wild child who is brutally honest and will admit to not doing much to carry on the family legacy.
Violet is the middle sister the strong and silent type who is happily engaged to Ryder.
Rose is the baby sister who has always worked hard yet is overlooked when it comes to the family business.
One night at Cannes Film Festival their grandmother gives Rose a rare necklace that is a family heirloom, the Poppy necklace. Rose was in attendance to watch the premier of a documentary about her grandmother and how the start of Fleur Cosmetics came to be.
While she was getting ready she hears the voice of a man that looks respectable yet is a creep. She turns away but he grabs her by the elbow. He asks her if she is Rose Fowler, she confirms while trying to pull out of his grip.
Rose adamantly tells the creepy stranger to let her go when a man intervenes.
Caden Kingsley may have been her savior for the evening but he is far from being a saint. He is a professional thief and is there to grab the necklace for someone who is willing to pay him top dollar for it.
However, when he sees the wrong sister wearing the necklace things do not go as planned. The two make a short yet lasting impression with each other.
Imagine their surprise when fate steps in and Caden and Rose meet again.
Is Rose just part of another con or is she his diamond in the rough?
I REALLY enjoyed this book! I felt for both Rose and Caden. I felt for Rose because she worked hard and made sacrifices for the family business while her father seemed to overlook her work ethic and happiness. I felt for Caden which is rare since he is a thief and a liar. Lieing and thievery is something I do not have tolerance for. However, the fact that he had no real role model and responsibility was forced on him at such a young age pulled at my heart. I understand how life can tear us apart but his mother should have stepped up and acted like the mother that she is.
Best Wishes Always,
