Review: Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott

Released: May 27, 2008
Publisher: HarperTeen
Rated: YA
Amazon
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.

What I thought

Elizabeth Scott books are a lot like potato chips. You can't stop with just one! I had a marathon weekend of her books and the more I read, the more I needed to get my hands on more. Stealing Heaven was another hit, one I couldn't put down until I had read every last word.

I really liked the premise of this one. It made for such a fantastic read that keeps the reader on their toes. Sydney, aka Danielle, was such a great character. I instantly fell for her. She had such hopes of a normal life, one where she didn't have to steal from people she made friends with and to skip town after each job. Danielle's mom was something else. I was fascinated and at the same time, sad for her daughter. The things she did!

The romance was brilliant! The obstacles that were in their way! It made for such a great read that kept me on my toes on how things would play out. Since Danielle had to hide everything from this guy she was growing more and more fond of. And her growing interest is hampered a bit by the guy being a cop. Really, it made the story fun and adventurous.
