Jen Turano's "To Steal a Heart" New Release Audiobook


To Steal a Heart by Jen Turano

Publisher's Summary

After a childhood as a street thief, Gabriella Goodhue thought she'd put her past behind her until a fellow resident at her boardinghouse is unjustly accused of theft. In the middle of breaking into a safe that holds the proof to prove her friend's innocence, Gabriella is interrupted by Nicholas Quinn, the man she once considered her best friend - until he abandoned her.

After being taken under the wing of a professor who introduced him into society and named him as heir, Nicholas is living far removed from his childhood life of crime. As a favor to a friend, Nicholas agreed to help clear the name of an innocent woman, never imagining he'd be reunited with the girl he thought lost to him forever.

As Gabriella and Nicholas are thrown together into one intrigue after another, their childhood affection grows into more, but their newfound feelings are tested when truths about their past are revealed and danger follows their every step.

I purchased my copy through my membership. The book is also available in other formats. I think I have read/listened to every one of Jen Turano's books. They have always been fresh and original. This one is a little different for me because it reminded me a little of Roseanna M. White's British series with street kids and spies, in particular book one of the Shadows Over England series:  A Name Unknown, which was an excellent audiobook. It was kind of like reading Roseanna crossed with Jen and that was a bit disconcerting at first. Ultimately, To Steal a Heart was, as I expected, its own unique story.

The narrator was good and her voice fit the characters. As is expected with a Jen Turano book, the novel was full of lovable quirky characters as well as with some villains that you will love to hate. This story has a little bit more of the dark underbelly of the time period, at the turn of the century, than most of Jen Turano's other books.

Jen Turano is one of the few Christian Fiction authors of humorous and light-hearted historical romances and I always look forward to each of her new releases. This story is a great self-gift for Christmas!
