Publisher’s Book Description

"After a childhood as a street thief, Gabriella Goodhue thought she'd put her past behind her until a fellow resident at her boardinghouse is unjustly accused of theft. In the middle of breaking into a safe that holds the proof to prove her friend's innocence, Gabriella is interrupted by Nicholas Quinn, the man she once considered her best friend--until he abandoned her.

After being taken under the wing of a professor who introduced him into society and named him as heir, Nicholas is living far removed from his childhood life of crime. As a favor to a friend, Nicholas agreed to help clear the name of an innocent woman, never imagining he'd be reunited with the girl he thought lost to him forever.

As Gabriella and Nicholas are thrown together into one intrigue after another, their childhood affection grows into more, but their newfound feelings are tested when truths about their past are revealed and danger follows their every step."

My Review

To Steal a Heart, by Jen Turano, is the first book in the new Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency series. This novel is simply amazing! Humorous, surprising, charming, and utterly endearing, this book just might be one of author Jen Turano’s best yet! 

Brimming with mystery, intrigue, suspense, romance, and plenty of the quirky shenanigans that embody Ms. Turano’s signature style, this novel is wholly enjoyable and remarkably memorable. With her obvious talent for incorporating descriptive writing, engaging dialogue, and unforgettable characters, Ms. Turano has once again crafted a story that is as original as it it witty. Quick pacing and imaginative plot twists ensure that this story is genuinely compelling and satisfying. From the first page to the final sentence, I found this book to be truly captivating and thoroughly entertaining. 

To Steal a Heart is certainly a special book. Well-written, meaningful, amusing, and thoughtful, it is definitely worthy of much attention and real praise. It is a novel I would happily reread in the future and share with my friends. I recommend it eagerly to all readers.
