In Manhattan ARTemis art recovery agent Eric McDougal is tracking down the stolen St. George necklace that allegedly was worn by Catherine the Great. Eric knows art restorer Natalie Rosen is the thief. Natalie borrowed the necklace worth $2 million no questions asked from her firm Luc Ricard Conservation and Restoration so her legally blind grandma Nonnie in Connecticut can validate what she believes, and if true once again touch and somewhat see the family heirloom stolen by Nazis decades ago.

Thus when Nonnie and her friend suddenly run away with the necklace for Russia, Natalie is stunned as she is left holding the legal bag. Eric believes Natalieand they team up in pursuit of two senior citizens leading them on a tango to Moscow

From Russia With Love is the theme of the latest “Take Me” ARTemis romantic suspense thriller (see TAKE ME IF YOU CAN and TAKE MET TWO TIMES). This fun tale takes readers on another rollicking ride this time chasing after the thieving grandma and her cohort. The story line is fast-paced from the opening theft and never slows down as the recover and the restorer fall in love during the merry chase.
