Ab Fab but with a caveat Joan Overfield One of my favorites by one of my favorite authors! Love the descriptions of Florence and the Maine coast, and the hero's family is a hoot! My only issue and the only thing that kept me from giving this 5 star is . SPOLER ALERT!!!!!. SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!Last timeSPOILER ALERT!!Having the hero be a thief even in the ultra-cool Cary Grant school of thieves simply didn't sit well with me and my accursed Sunday School upbringing. I couldn't get over the morality of the issue, and ke. linda said A good read. It was a long journey to stay involved in this book. Normally Nora's books grip me from the beginning but in the end she continues to prove why she's my favorite writer.. One of her best books!! So many twists and turns. A real thriller with a warm love story. Loved It. Will read more of Ms. Roberts' books again.
