A Talent for Trickery The Thief Takers #1 Review ✓ 109 Alissa Johnson à 9 Characters Read & download A Talent for Trickery The Thief Takers #1 Murderer Owen has stormed back into Lottie’s life She knows that no matter what they may pretend he will always be a man of the law and she a criminal Yet whenever he’s near Owen has a way of making things complicatedand long for a future that can never be their. If you devour historical romances I have no reason not to recommend this one but if you only read one once in a while I m not going to say you need to run out and get A Talent for Trickery It is a character focused story much of it is internal Lottie s endlessly conflicted thoughts or intimate as in conversations taking place among a couple of people in the privacy of a home not intimate X rated At the very end there is a confrontation with a dangerous villain but that content is not the strong point of the book and it represents only about 1 or 2% of the story The strong point of the story is that it is about a couple both of whom are intelligent and have their own talents and interests overcoming distrust and their own personal baggage in order to be brave enough to explore their feelings for each other The biggest weakness of the story is that the source of their distrust is reasonable but it is unnaturally prolonged by the author in order to create the circumstances of the book My biggest personal problem with the story is that there are two daughters who idealize their sadistic exploitive criminal father to a pathological degree I m not saying that the psychology of it is impossible I m merely expressing a personal preference that I don t like to dwell in a story of that sort of result of emotional abuse For some people such a story may be healing or empowering and some may be relatively indifferent to that angle of the book but I ended up skimming past a lot of the passages about exactly how awful this man was to his daughters and just how traumatizing it was for them to be disillusioned after a very very long time of denying the truth I am glad that Charlotte and Esther are finally free at the end of this book to find real love elsewhere instead of being trapped in a fantasy that they constructed in order to sustain the false belief that their father loved them but I never enjoy reading a story about someone who was genuinely unloved by a parent and whose emotional landscape is entirely shaped by that sad fact Ultimately I think I would read something else by Alissa Johnson but I would be careful to check a couple of reviews first and make sure it doesn t have a similarly depressingupsetting background before I get into it

A Talent for Trickery The Thief Takers #1 Review ✓ 109 Alissa Johnson à 9 Characters Read & download A Talent for Trickery The Thief Takers #1 The Lady is a ThiefYears ago Owen Renderwell earned acclaim and a title for the dashing rescue of a kidnapped duchess But only a select few knew that Scotland Yard’s most famous detective was working alongside London’s most infamous thiefand his criminally brilli. I ve given this a B at AAR so 45 starsA Talent for Trickery is Alissa Johnson s first new novel since 2012 and I for one have missed her The books of hers I ve read have been strongly characterised and intelligently written she has an engaging easy to read style that is laced with wit and subtle humour and the ability to develop her romances in a manner that never feels rushed or forced and I m happy to report that this latest book sees her in fine form Owen Renderwell a Detective Inspector at Scotland Yard became the focus of public attention some eight years previously by virtue of the fact that he solved a high profile case involving a kidnapped duchess and a fortune in diamonds As a result Owen was elevated to a viscountcy and his two friends and colleagues received knighthoods and now the three of them work as private investigators An inuiry into the recent murder of a brothel owner might not normally have come their way but for two things the murderer left a coded letter at the scene of the crime that was clearly intended to piue Owen s interest and the victim had been a friend of the notorious criminal Will Walker the man with whom Owen had secretly worked on a number of cases including that of the missing duchess and diamonds Walker an all round blackguard scoundrel and con man worked with Owen for some four years before being killed attempting to rescue the Duchess of Strale In order to protect his family two daughters and a son Owen arranged for them to disappear and assume new identities but now he has to seek them out for the first time since their father s death knowing that he is the last person they are likely to want to see or trust They being specifically Lottie Walker s eldest daughter and one time accomplice Fiercely loyal to her father she blames Owen for his death and importantly the fact that her father never received any recognition for his work on the right side of the law Even though she knows rationally that keeping her father s name out of the limelight was the safest option for her and her siblings she can t help feeling that Owen betrayed her and cheated her father out of any credit he may have been due for the fact that he had changed his ways and was at last walking along the straight and narrow Throughout the four years of their association Owen was strongly attracted to Lottie but never made the slightest move in her direction because he didn t want to put her in a position where she felt she couldn t refuse him His attempts to communicate with her following her father s death were unceremoniously rebuffed and he had to resign himself to never seeing her again although in the eight years that followed he has never been able to completely forget her But now he needs Lottie s help to decipher the encoded letter that was left at the scene of the murder together with those that were left at a number of high profile crime scenes in London Initially hostile she can t refuse if her aid will see the murderer of her old family friend brought to justice and an uneasy truce is struck between themLottie s resentment of Owen is deep seated and she is furious with herself when she is forced to acknowledge that the girlish infatuation she had harboured for him has never died and worse that she s as attracted to him as she ever was She tries hard to maintain a frosty demeanour but the time she spends in his company the she remembers about old times while at the same time learning new things about the man he has become Ms Johnson very wisely doesn t drag out the misunderstanding between the couple and even though they can t completely agree they have nonetheless come to a better understanding of the past well before the half way point Lottie is still keeping one devastating secret and can t bear the thought of losing Owen again so soon after their reconciliation But the sudden realisation that there is a killer on their trail leaves them no time to figure out what happens next as they are plunged into a desperate fight survival against an unknown adversaryAnyone who reads science fiction or suspense novels on a regular basis will know what I mean when I describe the rest of this book as a kind of base under siege story which is something I don t think I ve come across in an historical romance before For anyone unfamiliar with the term it s basically a story in which the protagonists are somehow trapped in a particular location and facing a threat known or unknown either from the outside or within I really enjoyed this aspect of the book Owen and Lottie still have things to sort out between them but don t let that get in the way of their working together to figure out the cipher and then to keep everyone safe and the way their relationship is transformed throughout the course of the book is incredibly well done The balance between suspense and romance is just about right and the author skilfully slips seamlessly between the twoBoth protagonists are three dimensional flawed characters whose interactions are enlivened by humour and a lovely undercurrent of affection and attraction even during that initial period of hostility and mistrust They have great chemistry and I loved their flirtatious tender and sometimes combative interactions Owen is a gorgeous hero an honourable man who is nonetheless prepared to make sacrifices for the woman he has loved for so long a man of action when he has to be and a man accustomed to command in a way that is attractive rather than arrogant Lottie is highly intelligent and devoted to her family but is blinded by the deep love she held for the father who used her for his own ends The secondary characters of Owen s colleagues and Lottie s siblings are well rounded with inner lives of their own and I m intrigued at the prospect of Esther whose revelations late on in the story are most unexpected and Sir Samuel as a future couple in another book in the seriesA Talent for Trickery is the sort of book that leaves one with a smile on one s face and a feeling of real satisfaction after it s finished It s not flashy or gimmicky it s just a very well told story peopled with characters whose flaws make them easy to identify with and like and I m happy to recommend it Welcome back Ms Johnson and please don t make me wait another three years for your next book

This is the first book I ve read by this author and I must say that is good not fantastic but really goodI like most the way the characters both main and secondary are describedBoth Owen and Lottie are complex characters with their own flaws Owen is commandeering and arrogant in his convictions but also ready to listen to Lottie when her expertise is needed Lottie is at the same time very sure and unsecure of herself Both their lives have not been easy but Lottie s was even less so IMHO Her father was a con artist and criminal to the bone who manipulated both his daughters shamelessly which left Lottie with deep scars about the value of honesty and honor She overanalyzes and double check everything always pondering of what is correct and just While Owen appreciates these ualities he s unaware of the fact that Lottie is deeply ashamed of her action while working with her father in the past But at the same time he s always been attracted to her and is ready to help her healI loved their interaction and their growing closeness Once the why Lottie shunned Owen is clarified they work together very well The way each one of them teases and goad the other is very very well done hereThe humor is cleverly done and I loved these moments tooThe only thing that I didn t like is the somewhat loss of action in the middle of the book There the things got a little too slow for my taste but I understand that this is not and action driven story So if you like a very good slow moving story with clever humor and clever MCs than this book is perfect for you
