Review: Cat Burglar In Training – Shelley Munro
Living in France for the past six years, Eve Fawkner has finally decided to move back home. The decision to do so wasn’t an easy one, as she’s not returning home alone. Her daughter, the product of a date rape and the very reason she left in the first place, is returning home with her. While the transition is to be a difficult for the both of them, she’s willing to finally settle down somehow and bestow her daughter with a sense of normalcy.
Yet she never imagined coming home to chaos and ultimate deceits. Her father, the renowned ‘The Shadow’, has come across some hard times. He can no longer continue his legacy and demands that Eve follow in his footsteps. Eve has a hard time accepting his request, yet finds herself coming around after the family begins to receive threatening phone calls. With no other choice, she sets off to settle all of his debts.
Immersing herself within society with her beloved best friend, Seth, by her side, she soon has everyone believing that she’s nothing more than a blonde bimbo. This facade works well for her as it allows her to move around with no one being none-the-wiser about her true purpose. It also doesn’t help that the good looking, and quite debonair, Kahu Williams begins to hound her every step in hopes of bringing her around to his favor.
Side-stepping the advances of several men, Kahu included, Eve knows her time is running short. Creditors are closing in with intent on getting what they’re owed in any way possible. A competitor soon enters the scene and she begins to wonder how she’ll be able to come up with the money to cover all of her father’s expenses. Eve begins to realize that she’ll have to come up with a good plan or two to do just that while dodging multiple attempts on her life in the process.
I absolutely loved this novel. Shelley’s story-telling is very pleasing and keeps the reader entertained with every turn of the page. Her character and plot development was very well done, in all honesty. Enjoyed it immensely.
Eve Fawkner had no intention of following in her father’s footsteps. But when the thugs harassing him to repay his gambling debts threaten her young daughter, Eve is forced to assume the role of London’s most notorious cat burglar, The Shadow. The plan is simple: pull off a couple of heists, pay back the goons and go into permanent retirement. But things get messy during her first job when Eve witnesses a murder, stumbles across a clue that sheds some light on her past and, worst of all, falls for a cop.
Inspector Kahu Williams would be the perfect man, if Eve were looking, and if there wasn’t the little matter of their career conflict. The man is seriously hot—and hot on the trail of a murderer. A trail that keeps leading him back to Eve . . .
