Set during the German occupation of France Jana Richards’ novel Flawless begins with Hunter Smith incarcerated in an English prison convicted of jewel theft. He is an expert in diamonds and is also the disowned son of an American Ambassador. He is visited in prison by a member of the SOE, an early form of MI6, and presented with an option of getting out only he must steal le Coeur Bleu. This is a priceless diamond in the possession of the Germans. With the help of French Resistance including the widow of Hunter’s best friend, Madeline Bertrand, a plan is made. Only Madeline believes that Hunter was responsible for her husband Jean Phillip’s death. In a wonderful twisted way Richards’ continues the twisty romantic thriller. Can these people work together? Can they find and steal the diamond successfully before General Dietrick can sell it in return for oil the German Army need? Most importantly can they find love and forgiveness among the dangers? Even though this is a short book, it still delivers. Richards develops the main characters so that you identify with them and their mission. It is still full of plot twists and turns. The book made an excellent weekend book to read. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Backlit PR in exchange for a fair and honest review
I love WW2 stories about the French Resistence so I was very pleased to see that Flawless was about the French Resistence. Madeline and Hunter are a great heroine and hero. I loved how their love story unfolded amidst the brutality of the Nazi regime. When I got to the last few chapters, I couldn't stop reading. My pulse was racing. Just when I thought Madeline and Hunter would escape, the evil Colonel Dietrich was back. Flawless was flawlessly written, fast-paced and exciting.
