Publisher's Summary

Reformed cat burglar Clea Rice has witnessed enough crimes to put her on the straight and narrow. But little does she suspect that her search for justice will land her in the arms of wealthy English gentleman Jordan Tavistock. As their attraction grows, so does the danger. Now their biggest concern isn't whether a proper gentleman and a cat burglar can find happiness....It's whether they'll survive long enough to find out.

Strong woman character with little girl voice

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I probably wouldn't recommend this book as an audio book. Although the voice performer had a nice range of voices in her repertoire, I didn't care much for some of the choices she made.The main character, who is supposed to be a resilient, resourceful American, sounds like a mousy, little girl. It seemed as though she was written to be a strong person, but the narrator's interpretation made her sound anything but.However, the narrator didn't always miss the mark. Her portrayal of the main male character Jordan, was spot on.

Would you recommend Thief of Hearts to your friends? Why or why not?

I probably wouldn't recommend the audio book, but I think this one might have been a good read.

What three words best describe Zoe Winslow’s voice?

Pleasant, varied, off-target.

Do you think Thief of Hearts needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I believe the characters could warrant another book -- but not if Klea (sp.) spends the whole story trying to run away from Jordan. Been there, done that.

An International Chase

What did you like best about Thief of Hearts? What did you like least?

Story moved well.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Very predictable. Saw the end coming after the fifth chapter.

What does Zoe Winslow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Voicings and interpretation were excellent. It's tough for a lady to do male voices, but we got the picture.

Do you think Thief of Hearts needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. Not Tess Gerittson's best effort. Definitely not Rizzoli and Isles..

Any additional comments?

A few dais exmachina moments. Charcters somewhat inconsistent.
