Give yourself a treat and read “The Reluctant Burglar.” This debut novel by Jill Elizabeth Nelson is one of the best. Nelson’s characters are fleshed out so well that you’d recognize them if you passed them on the street. This skillfully crafted story about security executive Desiree Jacobs draws you into the world of fine art and criminal intent. The novel has just the right amount of humor, mystery and romance to keep you glued to the pages. It’s a crime the sequel doesn’t come out until March 2007.
