Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Ring of Deception

Luke Sloan, detective for the Seattle, Washington police force, has been assigned to do surveillance of a reputable jewelry store in Forrester Square. In order to investigate a fencing operation going down within the jewelry building, Luke must conduct his surveillance from the building directly across the street from the jewelry store. Luke finds himself masquerading as a carpenter within the Forester Square daycare. Luke can't stand the thought of being surrounded by bratty kids all day, but he is forced to accept the assignment. On Luke's first day he has a run in with pretty single mom, Abby Douglas and her daughter Emily. Abby comes away from the incident with Luke thinking he is a rude child snatcher. When Luke explains that he's working inside the daycare doing carpentry work, Abby eases up on him. Abby has a tortured history, having fled her abusive husband after years of abuse and torment. Abby lives in constant fear that her ex, Frank, will track her down and commit further acts of violence against her. Now, living in Seattle and working at the jewelry exchange, Abby has created a new life for herself. Although distrustful of men, Abby manages to build a friendship with Luke. As Abby and Luke begin spending more time together, Luke realizes that Abby is emerging as his number one suspect in the fencing of the jewels. As Luke and Abby find themselves falling in love, Luke dedicates himself to solving the jewelry case and protecting the woman he loves.
