Book Review: To Steal a Heart by Jen Turano

 About the Book

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

This series opener by Jen Turano is one that her fans will not want to miss!  It is full of her signature hilarity, quirky characters, mystery, lessons to learn, romance, and more!

Working together was a theme throughout the book.  I loved that the boarding house women joined together to clear the name of one of their own.  Gabrielle and Nicholas had been very effective partners in crime as children.  After they reconnect, they work together to fulfill the missions of the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency.

Once the reader gets to know Gabriella and Nicholas, they become very endearing.  What Nicholas has accomplished is quite impressive, and his willingness to adjust his aspirations and goals to more upright standards was impressive.

Fans of Turano's work will certainly enjoy this new offering!  Highly recommended!
