ABOUT THE BOOK:

Professional, experienced contract burglar.
It’s not exactly something you can put on a business card.

Molly Miranda has made a successful living from “acquiring” valuables and delivering them to clients who pay buckets of cash for her unique services.

So what if she has to lie about her lavish lifestyle in Manhattan and her frequent trips out of the country? Molly has everything under control.

Things go astray when she knocks boots with her charming roommate right before taking off to Scotland with an untrustworthy wildcard on a job assignment that doesn’t go quite as planned.

It doesn’t help that this new partner-in-crime is super annoying. And attractive…

Join Molly on her hilarious adventures as she dodges bullets, trespasses, wears disguises, and steals her way into trouble.

MY REVIEW:

Molly  Miranda: Thief for Hire by Jillianne Hamilton is an absolutely fantastic book from start to finish.  The main character, Molly (Betty) is sassy, sarcastic, snarky, and frankly, a bad ass!  I enjoy a bad ass female character.  I’m tired of girls in books getting saved by guys.  Molly Miranda can take care of herself but that’s just one reason I like the book.

I’ve never read a story about a lady thief before and now I kind of want to be one.  It would be an exciting lifestyle to say the least.  I felt the author did a great job describing the ins and outs of thievery and made it seem completely realistic.  The flow of the book was really good, making the book a really quick read.  That was my only complaint – the book just wasn’t long enough!  Sequel, please?!

I’m really glad I read this book.  It’s not my normal genre but I would definitely read another book by this author in the future.  It’s totally different from anything else I’ve read lately.  It kept my interest the entire time, there wasn’t any unnecessary fluff for filler, I I liked (or loved to hate) the characters.  Great book!
