Product description

Product Description

A witty, sexy and suspenseful story about a stolen necklace, a doomed hotel, and two people determined to get their hands on the jewels—at any cost.

Selina Migliore is smart and streetwise—with an ill sister and an elderly grandmother relying on her, she has to be. When fate hands her a chance to change her life, she’s determined to seize it. All she has to do is retrieve a long-lost sapphire necklace before the Empire Hotel is blown to smithereens. Nothing’s going to get in her way…

…except Jack Tierney, PI, who’s also on the hunt for the stolen jewellery. Jack is amused by his clashes with the pushy brunette, but as he continues to bump into Selina at strange times and in odd places, he starts to question who she is and what she’s doing at the Empire.

The pressure cooker really heats up when a new player enters the scene and it becomes apparent that Jack’s not the only one keeping an eye on Selina…

Praise for BLUE STEAL:

'I was at the edge of my seat to figure out what truly happened 50 years ago and how it would all unfold. Loved it!' — F.C. (Netgalley)

'This story is a romantic mystery with shades of an old time vivacious heroine and a sexy hero. There's family history, a heist and a journey all rolled into a story that pulls you in from start to finish.' — Becky Burciaga (Netgalley)

I finished reading this novel two months ago and I am still thinking about it. What a great read. The main characters showed a brilliant chemistry. Selina was gutsy and determined. Intelligent, proficient writing. Loved it! Don't you hate it when you finish a book and can't stop thinking about the characters. I believe this is Marnie St Clair's second novel, her first "No Place Like You"No Place Like You (LOVED the cover of this book - would love a print of that on my wall) was another of my favourite reads. Can't find any more of her work, so I guess I will have to wait for Marnie's next novel. Hope it's not too far away.

The Skinny

Selina Migliore is on a mission. She sets out for the once-grand Empire Hotel, where her immigrant grandmother fell in love with one of the hotel owners' sons fifty years before. Now she is ailing in health and Selina's sister has a serious illness that requires much more money than Selina makes as an executive administrator. Now that the ring in the famous Petrovsky sapphire collection has been found in the hotel where it went missing the night Nonna's lover died all those years ago, Selina is there to find the matching sapphire necklace. It will solve all of her sister's medical finances. There's just one problem: Selina only has one week before the Empire is demolished.

Little does she know that fellow Empire resident Jack Tierney, P.I., is also at the hotel on behalf of the Petrovsky family to find the necklace stolen fifty years before. Once he finds inconsistencies with Selina's story, they "team" up to find the necklace. Suddenly Selina's great-uncle Lewis, her grandfather's twin, finds an interest in Selina and establishes contact. While trying to riddle out the necklace's possible hiding places, Jack and Selina both discover the mystery surrounding her grandfather's death due to the Petrovsky sapphires just doesn't add up. And Jack's not going to let that go.

The Quote

Why they bothered creeping, he didn't know. They could have banged around like a herd of baby elephants and no one would have batted an eyelid.

The Highs and Lows

Selina. She puts on a good front to Jack when caught red-handed searching for the sapphires. At this point, I'd already read about her botched engagement to a rich man (to pay for her sister's medical needs), so it was saddening to hear her valiantly selling herself as a heartless gold digger to Jack in the linen closet. She's such a good person, kind and caring and loving, that she is eager to please her great-uncle Lewis when he comes calling, no matter how socially awkward and strange he is.

Jack. He is a PI with a past he projects upon Selina, especially the money bit. While I could understand his pain from the previous relationship he denotes, I couldn't quite grasp how after three years he hadn't started moving past that and opened up even a little smidge to the possibility of a new person. Instead, he projected that old relationship onto Selina and continued to make ultimatums with her and with himself about trusting her. Despite this, he is drawn to her like a moth to a flame. As he digs deeper into the old police report about the stolen jewels and Andrew Holloway's death (along with the Empire's security guard), Jack begins his own investigation and uncovers some unsavoury tidbits that he is concerned about bringing to Selina's attention, but he had already threatened her requiring some information after the night she gave him the slip...and slipped him something!

Lewis. For all these years he's acted like a lone Holloway, turning Nonna away when she came to him and the family about her pregnancy. That doesn't sit well with Selina and is the one thing she can't let go of. Consequently, she is now a Holloway and named Lewis's heir. She will inherit everything - as long as she doesn't disappoint Lewis. His nature and mannerisms are slightly unsettling, but Selina chalks it up to living for fifty years without his twin.

Pacing and Mystery This is a fast-paced story without much deviation or subplots. The story brings in some of the hotel staff and Jack's partner, Charles, into the investigation. When the original cop on the Holloway scene and a childhood acquaintance turn up, the mystery of what happened the night Andrew died intensifies and starts crystallizing into a third story than the two previously told.

The Ending. It was spectacular! There were so many elements to the ending that brought Selina back to the Empire. The ending was fitting and perfect. I did, however, wonder why the Empire hadn't been torn down weeks after its closing like stated in the beginning of the book.

This is a great book written by Marnie St. Clair. Selina Migliore is trying to take care of her sick sister and elderly grandmother. When she is asked to retrieve a long lost sapphire necklace before the Empire Hotel is torn down, she jumps at the chance. Jack Tierney is a private investigator who is also on the hunt for the stolen jewelry. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this new to me author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Steal is a great read 8 September 2016

This was the first book I've read by Marnie St Clair but it won't be my last. It has a great mix of mystery & romance, with some family drama added for good measure. I thought Selina was a beautifully written character & Jack was just plain interesting (and hot). The mystery itself was full of twists & turns & the location the story was set in was unique.
