2016 book 3

Alissa Johnson's A Talent for Trickery
Smart Bitches, Trashy Books was raving about this the other day, and it pretty much lived up to the hype! It's a Victorian romance-cum-mystery (well, more of the former than the latter), centered on the daughter of a famous thief and con-man, who after his death took her younger siblings and set up as a respectable family under an assumed name, and the police detective she used to work with, now a viscount, who needs her help solving a murder. Of course they are super into each other and it's all very cute, though it DOES interfere with the detecting a bit. Anyway, I liked them and their relationship, both romantically and in terms of crime-solving, and it looks like the next book in this series will be about her sister and one of the guys he works with, and that looks like a lot of fun too. B+.
