    1. Book two in Tamara Morgan’s Penelope Blue trilogy, Saving Mr. Perfect picks up about six months after the end of Stealing Mr. Right, with former-jewel-thief-extraordinaire Penelope Blue trying to adapt to a “normal” life and keep out of trouble – but she’s miserable and bored witless.She and her gorgeous FBI agent husband Grant Emmerson have agreed they want to make a go of their marriage (which Penelope had tried to tell herself in the first book was just a means to an end), but she [...]

    2. Book Review For: Saving Mr. Perfect by Tamara Morgan 'Saving Mr. Perfect' by Tamara Morgan is book Two in the "Penelope Blue" series. This continues the story of Penelope "Pen" and Grant. I do feel that you should read the previous book "Stealing Mr. Right" first. Pen has given up her life of crime but its not so fun being a housewife. But there is a new theft in town it seemsbut some think is Penelope back at it. But Grant knows differently and Pen is starting to think it might be her Step-Moth [...]

    3. The Penelope Blue series is best read in order, so for those who haven't read it, I suggest picking up book one, STEALING MR. RIGHT. Penelope and her crew are considered among the best in the business, which isn't surprising considering who her father is. Penelope's days as a cat burglar are in the past now that she is married to sexy FBI agent, Grant Emerson.When a thief dubbed "the peek-a-boo" robber begins robbing homes of the elite and evading the FBI, Penelope fears her husband suspects he [...]

    4. I liked this, but I think I would have liked it more if I hadn't read the first 33% of the book as a preview in the first book and if this book didn't stop around 80%, to presumably preview the next one. Don't do that, publishers. It's really not good.Anyway, I liked the established relationship aspect of this, but I wanted more of that as the actual focus of the book. It's a lot of "did she change/is she unhappy/can I change/I'm so unhappy" and that's not really fun to read in the way I was loo [...]

    5. While the second book in Morgan’s Penelope Blue’s series didn’t WOW me as much as the first book, I did like it.There was the sharp, witty dialogue and the strong cast of secondary characters. It still had the same humor I loved. And a really great leading character, both heroine and hero.I guess what it was missing was the “will they, or won’t they” get together. Grant and Penelope are an “established” couple that are still working out the bugs in their relationship. Penelope ha [...]

    6. The cover change of this series is a huge disappointment for me. This series is called Penelope Blue. The first set of covers HAD Penelope Blue on them, and they were wonderful. This cover looks like every other CR out there.

    7. I declare myself a Penelope Blue fan!If the first book was incredibly awesome, this one keeps up really well. (view spoiler)[After the "happy-ever-after" ending between Penelope and Grant, what happens after? Penelope feels lost and unhappy: no job, friends, and too much spare time. I really liked the mystery of "Who is the Peep Toe Prowler?". The author creates the perfect atmosphere and scenes so EVERYONE looks suspect! (hide spoiler)]This book is the perfect sequel, mixing romance, mystery an [...]

    8. I seem to have a soft spot for these Penelope Blue books. I'm pretty methodical when it comes to selecting the books I read. I hate it when I get one I don't like, so I'm very selective. The thing with Stealing Mr. Right, was that it didn't meet any of my usual book criteria, and I was STILL dying to read it. So I did. And I loved it.Naturally, I couldn't wait for Saving Mr. Perfect to come out. I wasn't disappointed. I was laughing within minutes, and had to put the book down so my husban [...]

    9. After reading the first book in this series, Stealing Mr. Right, I have been waiting for this book. It was instant love for Penelope and Grant. The witty banter between them had me laughing the whole time in the first book. They are back at it again in this book. Only this time, Grant and Penelope are on the same side as husband and wife. Yep, Penelope could not say no as Grant had stolen her heart. There is still the witty banter but I found myself left with a few less laughs. Partly because Pe [...]

    10. Oh no, this isn't a Toby Daye book. Stupid library due dates.This was fine, but . . . maybe this was really just a one book premise? The first book was fun and cat and mouse-y, but now things are out in the open and it's not so fun. Also (view spoiler)[yeah, both Tara and Christopher did not great things. Let's not embrace them all the way quite yet. (hide spoiler)]Don't know if I'll read the next one.

    11. 3 1/2 StarsI'm glad that we got a little bit of Grant's POV mixed in with Penelope's in this one. Not much, mind (I'd say 75% her POV, 25% his -- maybe less, actually).It did help me to get a better feel for his character.I liked this one. I like this series and Morgan's writing in general. But I must admit, this one was a bit of a slower read for me. Slower being a subjective term here, as it took me three days to read -- not a terribly long time, by any means, but a bit longer than I usually a [...]

    12. Penelope has given up her life of crime, and she and Grant are settling into their marriage. Only one problem – Pen really doesn’t thrive as a housewife, and she misses her relationships with her jewel thief friends. She needs a challenge.Fortunately or unfortunately there is a new thief in town, the Peep-Toe-Prowler, a thief of high stakes jewels from wealthy socialites. Some folks at the FBI think that thief is Penelope Blue. Some, like Grant, think it’s an inside job by the new head of [...]

    13. ***   ARC provided by the author for an honest review  ***Saving Mr. Perfect is the continuation in the Penelope Blue series by Tamara Morgan. An entertaining tale providing wittiness and mystery making it an exciting read for a good weekend. Penelope is a former jewelry thief. She is still trying to find her way in her current non-criminal life, but things are really difficult at the moment. And oh no, there is a new thief in town. Dubbed the Peep Toe Thief, Penelope initially thinks that s [...]

    14. The continuation of the Penelope Blue series is so enticing that you'll find yourself burning through the pages. It is sexy, fun, and intriguingwith the perfect jewelry heists "who done it" to keep you guessingwith a completely surprising ending. The turn of events of the myriad of relationships layered throughout bring added emotions that are endearing. Grant and Penelope are still the perfect odd couple who will pull at your heartstrings with the depth of their love, despite their differences. [...]

    15. The FBI and a Jewellery Heist 3.5*This is the second book in a series and I think I would have got more out of it, if I had read the first. I did find it difficult to believe that an FBI agent could marry a jewel thief without being either forced to resign, or at the very least be seriously demoted/transferred to an area where he wasn't investigating jewellery thefts. I also had trouble getting into the relationship between husband and wife where their marriage is described as an "endless game o [...]

    16. Loved this book! This is a fun cat and mouse mystery that had me guessing until the very end - there were twists and turns that I never could have predicted. Penelope is a reforming (sort of) jewel thief married to Grant, an FBI agentwhat could go wrong with that? Despite being very much in love, they are both keeping secrets from each other while each tries to protect the other.Grant is particularly worried about Penelope because there is a thief steeling jewels all around the city while making [...]

    17. Yes, I really tried. Really, really tried. But I just couldn't finish this book. The blurb was funny, so I thought it would be a fun read. Even though I had not read the first part. The story is original (or so it seems). But I've been struggling through the pages since August. And now I've decided to give up.The thing is, it isn't written in a bad way. But the characters just don't appeal to me. So, yes, Penelope Blue you were a burglar. And yes, you married a FBI agent. But don't go behind you [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this second book in the Penelope Blue series. Penelope has retired from her career as a jewel thief in deference to her husband Grant's career as an FBI agent. The problem is that now her life seems dull and the story of the new Peep Toe Burglar seems to be causing a problem with Grant. Add to the mix an obnoxious agent seemingly bent on one-upping Grant ( he shot him in the back once with a paint ball) and you have a bit of stress between Pen and Grant.There is just enough susp [...]

    19. I was lucky enough to read the first book in the Penelope Blue series and I absolutely loved it (5/5 stars all the way!)-- I loved it enough to email the author, which I almost never do. I put this book- Saving Mr. Perfect- on my to read list and anxiously awaiting the release. I received the book for free from Netgalley. I was not obligated to review it, but was sure that I would. I was positive that I would enjoy it. It did not disappoint. Now, while it was not as good as the first book, it wa [...]

    20. Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This is the second installment in the series, and I did enjoy it. Penelope is hilarious, when you hear what she is thinking you can't help but to like her. This book featured a lot of Grant thoughts, and I really liked that, you see how much he loves Pen, and would do anything to keep her safe. I was a little disappointed with Riker, he knew everything that Tara had done to Pen, and yet he was with her, I did understand how Pen felt betrayed, bec [...]

    21. 3.5 estrelasNa verdade, a maioria do livro foi um pouco meh mas houve umas cenas mais emocionantes, como as relacionadas com Tara, a ex-madrasta de Penelope. Afinal, não era assim tão má. Mas o que foi mesmo bom, foi o final, ena que surpresa! (view spoiler)[Christopher afinal não era o ladrão mas sim meio-irmão de Grant, que pensava que Penelope é que era a Pee-Toe e a queria proteger. Eu realmente achava que Christopher era uma aposta demasiado óbvia, mas pronto Muito bem feito, sim se [...]

    22. Smashing, funny, sexy and brilliant! FBI hottie marries jewel thief and can't be happier until his boss starts acting suspiciously like a suspect. The logical suspect for the Peep-toe thief is Penelope but she's turned lawful citizen, who is it? Her old team, her stepmother, or the agent? Twists and turns will keep you busy and never guessing correctly. This is the second story for Penelope Blue and could be read by itself but you miss the connection between Pen and Grant, her past and her frien [...]

    23. 4.5I'm loving this series! It's light and fun, but smart enough you can't just breeze through it, you have to pay attention. The theme of family is very prominent in this one, but not heavy-handed, and I especially enjoyed the development of Penelope's relationship with her one-time (still?) stepmother, Tara. I admit I figured out the ending well in advance, and there's a throwaway line midway that rather spoiled a big reveal down the road, but everything was still so fun and clever that I didn' [...]

    24. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    25. What a fun book. She's a jewel thief and he's an FBI agent who has previously investigated her. When a string of crimes are committed that resemble her MO, she jumps out of retirement to help her husband with the investigationeven though he is against it. This book was a joy to read and kept me engaged to the end.

    26. After loving the first book in the series, I have been eagerly awaiting this story. I knew the cat and mouse games from the first story wouldn't be in this one and I do miss them but I still love Penelope, Grant and all the characters. The middle was a little slow for me but overall it didn't effect my enjoyment of the story. I can't wait for the next one.

    27. I read book one and was very interested in getting more from Penelope Blue and Grant. I think they have a lot of potential as a couple. Unfortunately, this book is way more caper than couple. The heist takes center stage and their love and romance is secondary. I would have liked it if Pen or Grant could just be completely honest with each other.

    28. Saving Mr. Perfect is the second book in the Penelope Blue series. While you can read them as a stand alone I would read them in order.The author does a fantastic job of creating fascinating characters & an interesting story.I am looking forward to the next book in this series!I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    29. 4.5 stars - Just as fun as the 1st Penelope Blue book (Stealing Mr. Perfect). Grant & Penelope are the perfect odd couple trying to make a go of it despite their differences. Add in quirky characters & you'll be laughing out loud.
