9781492620501: A Talent for Trickery (The Thief-takers)

"In a plot that twists, turns and surprises, Johnson has woven a compelling romance between two stubborn, endearing people. If you love smart heroines, intelligent heroes, witty dialogue and clever mystery plots, this gem of a historical romance might steal your heart."―Bookpage

Detective Inspector Owen Rednerwell once found himself entangled with Charlotte Walker, the daughter of an infamous criminal. Now his new case will draw him back to the woman he could never forget.

Years ago, Owen Renderwell earned acclaim―and a title―for the dashing rescue of a kidnapped duchess. But only a select few knew that Scotland Yard's most famous detective was working alongside London's most infamous thief...and his criminally brilliant daughter, Charlotte Walker.

Lottie was like no other woman in Victorian England. She challenged him. She dazzled him. She questioned everything he believed and everything he was, and he has never wanted anyone more. And then he lost her.

Now a private detective on the trail of a murderer, Owen has stormed back into Lottie's life. She knows that no matter what they may pretend, he will always be a man of the law and she a criminal. Yet whenever he's near, Owen has a way of making things complicated...and long for a future that can never be theirs.

Review :

". . .the leads' blend of cleverness and stubbornness makes their push-pull dynamic a joy." - Publishers Weekly

"I have never read a book by Alissa Johnson before, and after I read A Talent for Trickery I had that "Nomnomnommoremoremore" feeling which is a problem because Alissa has written a ton of other books and I don't know when I'll find time to read them all. But I do know that I want to read them NOW. Because A Talent for Trickery was so good, you guys. Really superlative. I ate it up. I stayed up late to finished it. It was nommy historical romance goodness. Grade: A." - Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

"The author manages to surprise the reader time and again...This is worth a read..." - Kirkus

"[T]he leads' blend of cleverness and stubbornness makes their push-pull dynamic a joy." - Publishers Weekly

"In a plot that twists, turns and surprises, Johnson has woven a compelling romance between two stubborn, endearing people. If you love smart heroines, intelligent heroes, witty dialogue and clever mystery plots, this gem of a historical romance might steal your heart." - BookPage

"From the first page, Johnson seizes readers' attention with both the intriguing mystery element and the heated romance. Losing none of her witty dialogue or clever plotting, she pulls readers this way and that as the story swiftly turns from suspense to romance and back again. Even when the pacing slows toward the middle, readers will hang on until the exciting conclusion." - RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

"Johnson begins her new Victorian-set Thief Takers series with a bang with a richly nuanced cast of characters whom Dickens himself might envy, and an expertly crafted mystery sweetened with just the right amount of passion." - Booklist

"If you like your historical romances with a touch of suspense, strong heroines, and dashing, driven heroes, then I recommend A TALENT FOR TRICKERY. I can't wait to read the next installment in this new series. Night Owl Reviews Top Pick!" - Night Owl Review

"Setting a consistent pace from the start, the romance between Lottie and Owen unfolds with plenty of humor - at times acidic, which makes it even more fun! - and an escalating danger that discourages readers from putting down book one in The Thief-Takers series for any reason other than they've reached the end." - USA Today HEA
