Review: ‘Nerves of Steele’ (Steele Guardians, book 2) by Susan Sleeman

About The Book
One mysterious break-in…
As a middle child, Peyton Steele has always needed to find a way to standout. But coming to the attention of the head of security for her client’s jewelry store when millions of dollars in jewels go missing is not the way to do it. She thinks the state-of-the-art cameras she’d recently had installed will make it easy to find the thief, but she’s stunned when the video doesn’t show the theft taking place.
Propels her into a level of danger she’s never known.
The lack of video evidence is not acceptable to store security manager and former detective, Grant Logan. He’s given up his law enforcement career to spend more time with his daughter, and he’s up for a promotion as security manager for the entire jewelry chain. To gain the job that will give his young daughter everything he wants for her, he has to prove his abilities by finding the thief at all costs. He’ll put everything on the line to gain this new job, but how far will he go? Despite his growing interest in Peyton, will he risk both of their lives to succeed?

My Rating: 5 Stars!

‘Five minutes. Five minutes stood between Peyton and sanity, and she didn’t know if she would make it.’

Susan Sleeman is back with book two in her Steele Guardians series and she does not disappoint. She never disappoints, actually, and that’s why she is a go-to author for suspense in my book, pun intended. A million dollar heist of black diamonds is the back drop for this story that features Peyton Steele. And there are only a few suspects, but none who seem likely.

Sleeman never fails to ratchet up the suspense in her novels while at the same time evoking a deep spiritual response in her characters. She also adds in a surprising twist that I did not see coming. She is a huge favorite for this reader.

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. The opinion in this review is entirely my own.
