A candid writing moment with Daisy Jerico

"In The Love Thief, Sandra faces a crucial decision, whether to trust her heart or listen to her head. When I outline stories, I think about the decisions we make every day. Do we let our heart rule or our head? Which way causes the most regret and which brings the greatest joy? I strive for my heroines and heros to find that trust in themselves and God to find the right path. In the books I write as well as the books I read, that's the most interesting thing for me. How about you?" Daisy Jerico

When the jewelry gallery she works at is robbed, Sandra is not just the prime suspect; she is the only suspect. Desperate to clear her name, she reluctantly agrees to work with sexy former jewel thief, Alex Daniels, to recover the jewelry and catch a thief.

He reminds her of the men who lounge half-naked across Ferraris in fragrance ads, aloof and confident in their looks. Alex can't believe anyone as naive and trusting as Sandra can be for real. Thrown together to solve the robbery, Alex feels his heart begin to thaw towards Sandra. As his feelings become stronger, Alex must ask her to rekindle a romance to her recently paroled ex-boyfriend, who holds the key to solving the robbery.

In the end, Sandra must decide if it is more important to clear her name or follow her heart.

Book Review
Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite

Sandra spends her days working as a hostess and salesperson for a jewelry gallery nearby. Her nights, however, are spent actually designing jewelry. Her first piece ever is even on display, until a nasty jolt from her past comes crashing back into her life. Jewel thief Derrick Dane nearly ruined Sandra's life five years ago by attempting to frame her for all of his heists and robberies. Now she's working for the police to bait Derrick into a trap so that she can get her stolen piece back and clear her name once and for all. With the help of one sexy cop and one grandfather cop and a monstrous dog named Beastie, Sandra might just come out on top after all. The Love Thief by Daisy Jerico is a fun and fabulous new romp in the realm of Contemporary Romance.

While there wasn't a whole lot of depth to the story, it was a super cute and entertaining read. You hate all the right people, love all the right people, and the plot pushes just the right buttons. This is the cutesy kind of read that you use to get away from the hum-drum of the kids and school routine, and it just works. Daisy Jerico has an easily flowing writing style that manages to both tell the story and give a solid air of humor and lightness. It was a really refreshing read and is a highly enjoyable story. Almost reminded me of the Heist Society series, so it would be good for fans of that series and genre as well.

Inexpensive carpet sweeper. When pulling out the vacuum isn't worth the effort.
