Although PERFECT TOUCH started off slow, it turned into an excellent and fast paced read that fans of romantic suspense will love.
Retired Army captain Jay Vermillion may have a series of paintings that could skyrocket Sara Medina's career to the next level. Her immediate visceral reaction to the man's voice notwithstanding, Sara needs Jay's help to gain access to the Custer paintings he's inherited, and when his former stepmother loses claim to them in court, Sara has her chance. She's not expecting the man with the golden voice to have the looks to back it up, but she's struck dumb when she finally meets him in person.
A break-in at her hotel room has her bunking at Vermillion Sky Ranch with Jay, getting to know the man who swept her off her feet on the phone. As the two get to know one another in person, it's clear that Sara's stance of NEVER moving back to the middle of nowhere is wavering, just as it's clear that someone isn't prepared to play nice when it comes to the Custers, Sara, Jay or the Vermillion Sky Ranch.
I started off wary of PERFECT TOUCH because of the discrepancies in the book's synopsis versus the book itself, but quickly realized that Ms. Lowell created an excellent romantic suspense novel that had a little something for everyone. For romance, we've got former soldier Jay and art specialist Sara getting to know one another with a series of phone calls, only to realize they were laying the groundwork for a romantic and epic relationship tighter than a lot of MC's out there. PERFECT TOUCH had intrigue; it left me wondering who wanted the "Muse" paintings so much that they were willing to do all sorts of nefarious things to get it. There was drama, with the stepmother and the half-brother's antics enough to make anyone shake their heads. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat, particularly during the second half of the book, and I genuinely didn't know who was behind the plot until the last minute since my "sure bet" lost this round.
Bottom Line: PERFECT TOUCH was like a plane, slow moving until finally taking off at a "hold onto your hats" speed. Well done Ms. Lowell!
