Portrait of a girl by Luanna Stewart (2015)

Product Details

When her wealthy art dealer father died, Heather James was expecting a fortune. Instead, his bank account was empty and Heather's working in a bakery, wondering exactly what happened to her father's millions...until someone tries to kill her.

Tony Simons is on the trail of an art theft cold case that's practically giving him frostbite. He's hoping that by sticking close to Heather - the daughter of his deceased prime suspect - he'll find the answers he needs. Instead, he's finding himself distracted by a gorgeous woman who drives him crazy in every way imaginable...
Now Tony's in serious trouble. Even if Heather can't - or won't - tell him where the stolen paintings and money are, she may well have stolen his heart.
And now someone wants her dead...

Full of action, suspense and romance. The action was non stop and it kept me entertained right to the end. In order to really enjoy this book though you have to suspend disbelief. There were plenty of twists and turns although there were a few instances where it all just got a bit silly. There were too many villains and things going on in the background. 
The main villain was quite questionable as well. Everyone was completely terrified of him even though he was dying and his weapon of choice was his walking stick. Puh-leeze.
Thankfully the author managed to tie it all together and bring it to a nice conclusion.
