Product Description

They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer but what if you can't tell the difference? For security consultant Desiree Jacobs, the assignment is simple: make off with an ancient Mayan artifact, and hand it over to the good guys in time to plan her wedding to ultra-fine FBI agent, Tony Lucano.Yet, in a world where no one is as they seem, Desi must decipher who the good guys are-before she ends up in the hands of a ruthless enemy. Suddenly, artifact recovery turns into archaeological espionage, and the woman who finds all the answers must now ask questions. Who's looting priceless antiquities underneath the nose of the baffled Mexican government? And what does a violent gang of drug and human traffickers have to do with missing artifacts?

Series: To Catch a Thief

Corporate sabotage. Stolen antiquities. Sexual slavery. Murder. Security specialist, Desiree (Desi) Jacobs thought she was just testing a security system when she successfully stole the valuable headdress of Pakal in Reluctant Smuggler. Instead, she found herself in the middle of an art theft investigation because valuable antiquities had been disappearing from museums and archaeological digs in Mexico. Though she wants to go home to plan her wedding to FBI agent Tony Lucano, she ends up on the Yucatan Peninsula, where there had been two thefts in less than one hour.

In a Boston blizzard, Tony’s boss sends his team to raid a ship suspected to be carrying sex slaves. When the raid goes badly for Tony, it’s not only a question of whether he will survive to see his wedding, but if he will be physically able to return to the FBI.

As Desi’s and Tony’s investigations mesh, a gang leader called El Jaguar seems to be behind both the sex slave trade and the art thefts.

Reluctant Smuggler, the third book in the To Catch a Thief series, begins with a fast-pace and fascinating characters. It slows down in the middle as Tony’s health crisis distracts the reader from the main plot a little too long but speeds up again nearer the end. Both Tony and Desi face situations that exceed their abilities and require dependence on God.

This book doesn’t contain much scripture but depends more on reader familiarity with Christian ideas of dependence on God and personal responsibility. It includes a set of discussion questions in the back. It was enjoyable and I would like to read books one and two in the series. - Debbie Wilson,

    Great summer beach reading! I bought and read all three in the series in rapid succession. Although this one ties up loose ends it seems to do so in a little forced manner. Still fun!

    I've visited Cancun and the nearby area of the Yucatan peninsula twice and I was totally immersed into the Mayan influence as I read Reluctant Smuggler. I enjoyed the seeing the story unfold even though I had not read the first two in the series. Reluctant Smuggler can stand on it's own but now, of course I want to go back and read the other two.

    Review by Gretchen Hoffman I was so excited when Reluctant Smuggler came out. I started reading the series when the first two books were out, but I had to wait for this one. Book three did not disappoint. In the final book of the trilogy, Desiree Jacobs faces her most difficult task yet. It started off simple--obtain an antique Mayan artifact and get it to the good guys. But the simple task gets complicated when espionage, people looting Mexican antiquities, corrupt government officials, and a violent gang, the Fraternidad de la Garra, find their way into the picture. How is Desi supposed to plan the perfect wedding to her fianc, FBI agent Tony Lucano, with all this trouble? With injuries, lots of questions, and someone close who ends up in the hospital, Desi faces a lot of "what-if" situations and must rely on more than her wits to survive. She needs to find the truth before anyone else, including herself, gets hurt. If you've read book one and two, this book is a must. Ms. Nelson ties everything together in a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat package. Check it out.

    Security consultant Desiree Jacobs is at it--again! What should have been a simple artifact retrieval lands her in the jungles of Mexico, where differentiating the good guys from drug traffickers is no easy job. Whether or not Desiree can outrun the nasty boys and keep her wedding date with FBI agent Tony Lucano proves to be Desiree's greatest adventure yet. Book three of the To Catch A Thief series, Reluctant Smuggler by author Jill Elizabeth Nelson is another front runner! Decisively character driven, Reluctant Smuggler is packed with action and riveting suspense that makes for an intense page-turner. I applaud Jill Elizabeth Nelson's gift to transport readers to a world of romantic suspense and, to believe they are with Desiree whether inside a grand palace or the mysterious Mayan ruins. Nelson has a natural gift of unobtrusively showing Desiree's and Tony's unwavering faith. Reluctant Smuggler will appeal to inspirational and secular readers alike. And if you haven't read the first two books of this amazing series you must! Jill Elizabeth Nelson's, Reluctant Smuggler is my favorite of the Catch A Thief series. I'm chewing my nails in suspenseful anticipation for her next book!
