Publisher's Summary

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.

Fantastic!

Jen has penned another wonderfully funny story in "To Steal A Heart." I thoroughly enjoyed this latest story from Jen, where we meet Gabrielle and Nicolas. What a hoot these two are when they get together! I laughed at countless times throughout the story. Jen does humor REALLY well. The story was fun with great characters that we will see in the rest of the books in this series and let me tell you, I can't wait for those stories. There is a reason Jen's books continuously top my favorites list-she writes stories with humor, fantastic characters and a great plot and she NEVER misses. I truly love her books and this one is one of her very best! Read it-I can all but promise you won't be disappointed!

Completely Delightful!

Characters with unusual backgrounds fill this completely delightful story. I loved the reunion between Gabriella and Nicholas. ❤️ The cases and how the ladies of The Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency solved them were fun to read. I was particularly fond of Winston, Precious, and Pretty Girl. Everything Jen Turano writes is great! There is something extra special in how she writes animals into the lives of her characters too. This will be another audiobook that I will listen to repeatedly.
*Update* I have listened to this book at least 4 more times. I still LOVE it!

can't wait for book 2

You are always in for a good laugh with Jen Turano, but I believe this is my favorite book by her this far!!
With the undercover work these ladies had me going for a wild ride with all their disguises and quick banter. The narrator was outstanding!!

Funny and clever

Lots of humor, very clever plot. Lots of character interaction. Jen Turano does a witty job of poking fun at the American ton of the late 1900s to turn of the twentieth.

A delightful Story

I have to admit there were some twist and turns I didn’t expect. The personalities of the women from the Boarding house were so fun.
A perfect combination of mystery, humor and romance.

Delightful! Charming! Full of fun!

I love the characters. What a hoot! Jen Turano is wonderful! I haven't read a bad book of hers. This one was so much fun!! I love Gabrielle, but Daphne is such a fun oddity! I am really looking forward to the next book. Don't miss this if you love clean sweet romances with adventure and a lot of humor. I love the empowered women who still have a lot of flaws. I can't say enough of this book. Can't wait til the next one! Religion is there, but is a part of the story and never gets in the way. The story rules marvelously and still uplifts. Don't miss out.

Good

It's an interesting, engaging story. There was some predictability, but also an unexpected twist or two. Witemeyer never fails to bring out an entertaining, funny story that keeps you engrossed. it's not a five stars because I reserve that rating for things that are exceptional.

Enthralling!

Such a great story! I personally love stories including thieves and pick pockets(like A Name Unknown by Roseanna M White).
A bonus for having elements of Christianity in it, although subtle.
I loved the characters & setting. It's so refreshing to have a romance set in America that isn't all Country & Small town-ish.
What I liked the most though, was how there were multiple plots. It wasn't just one mystery to solve and then everyone lives happily ever after. There are numerous cases and side plots which made it a very enjoyable read.
The performance was also brilliant.
Definitely recommend.😍

Thank you Audible, Jen Turano & Andrea Emmes for this Wonderful story.
