Scintillating Summer Read: Thief of Shadows

Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt
Reviewed by Cassandra, Collection Management Librarian 

The fourth book in The Maiden Lane series, Thief of Shadows finally focuses on Winter Makepeace, the staid and respectable headmaster of the Home for Unfortunate Infants and Foundling Children, located in London's most notorious slum and Isabel, Lady Beckinhall. Thief of Shadows has more action and danger coupled with mystery and villains to vanquish than the previous books in the series.

Isabel is as strong as heroines come in books. She's not the feistiest female or the boldest seductress we've seen, she's worse. She's an intelligent female with resources and courage. A perfect match for Winter, even if neither knows it.
