Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott

From Goodreads:
My name is Danielle. I'm eighteen. I've been stealing things for as long as I can remember.

Dani has been trained as a thief by the best - her mother. Together, they move from town to town, targeting wealthy homes and making a living by stealing antique silver. They never stay in one place long enough to make real connections, real friends - a real life. In the beach town of Heaven, though, everything changes. For the first time, Dani starts to feel at home. She's making friends and has even met a guy. But these people can never know the real Dani - because of who she is. When it turns out that her new friend lives in the house they've targeted for their next job and the cute guy is a cop, Dani must question where her loyalties lie: with the life she's always known - or the one she's always wanted.

There is something about reading an Elizabeth Scott novel that reminds me of reading Judy Blume when I was younger – it captures that magic I felt when I realised how amazing reading can be. I just loved this book – the plot, characters – I loved it all. I find Elizabeth Scott has a really simple but enchanting writing style and she really brings the characters to life. I identified with Dani immediately even though her situation is very unique and I just adored Greg. I love the way these two characters had a real connection and I really believed in their friendship.

As you’ve probably guess I really enjoyed this and can’t wait to read more by this author.

Back to the review, this book sounds really interesting. Sounds like it would make a great film. I am going to have to try at least one book by this author.

Oooh, interesting. The comparison to reading Judy Blume has sold me. I've been wanting to read some Elizabeth Scott for a while - I'll try to start with this one, I think. Thanks for the review!

This sounds fascinating - think I'll put it for the wishlist :) In a later wip I'll be including a thief, so it'll be nice to see how this is written.
