To Steal a Heart ( The Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency Book 1) by Jen Turano Reviewed


About the book:

Title: To Steal a Heart

Author: Jen Turano

Series: The Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency BK 1)

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 Thoughts

Another fun historical novel that will have you laughing from the beginning. In Ms. Turano's signature style she pens a story set in the Gilded Age filled with wonderful characters who continually get themselves into difficult situations. 

All I kept seeing when Gabriella was dressed as a man sneaking into a high-society costume ball in hopes of proving who the thief was, was Barbara Streisand in Yentl. 

This book was a hoot! Filled with hilarity on every page that had me laughing. I can already suspect that the following books in The Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency are going to be just as fun!

Fans of Jen Turano will want to add this book to their TBR. I highly recommend this book!
