A Heart Worth Stealing Review




About the Book

 Sowerby, England, 1802

Miss Genevieve Wilde—a magistrate’s daughter and independent heiress—is determined to meet life’s challenges all on her own, just as her late-father had taught her. So when her father’s pocket watch is stolen, she will do anything to get it back, especially when the local authorities prove incompetent.

Upon reading an advertisement in the paper, she takes a chance and contacts a thief-taker to find the watch. It’s a choice Ginny regrets when former Bow Street officer Jack Travers arrives on her doorstep. He is frustratingly flirtatious, irritatingly handsome, and entirely unpredictable, and Ginny wonders if she’ll be able to resist such a man.

But after Ginny discovers that the missing watch is just a small part of a larger, more frightening plot against her, she needs Jack’s help more than ever. To protect her home and her reputation, the two enter into a risky charade—pretending Jack is her cousin so he can begin his investigation, starting with the household staff. As they work together to unravel the mystery, Ginny finds herself falling fast for her charismatic thief-taker, leaving her heart in just as much danger as her life. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

Oh my goodness this book was fun to read. I think Joanna Barker's writing just gets better and better with each new book. This story has wonderful unique characters and a mystery that really added to the story line. The romance is clean and Ginny and Jack are superb opposites. There are a few twists and turns that I was not expecting and I was delighted at the adventure! I think readers will be surprised at this one because it is a bit different than the typical Regency Romance and I am thankful for it! This is a must read for 2023 especially if you enjoy clean Proper Romance and Joanna Barker. Her books really fun to read and I highly recommend them! 


Five Stars.
