Holly is a thief who’s made a career of swindling primarily bad (or at least really rich individuals who have gotten their money in less than legitimate ways) people but she’s ready to retire, having made a final theft to get herself set up for a couple of years. Unfortunately, that last theft’s victim was less than pleased and sends bounty hunter Peyton after her, along with a few other bounty hunters – he really wants his money back. She’s retreated to the town she’s dreamed of retiring in, but unfortunately in a near-intimate encounter with Peyton some time back, Holly mentioned the town and so he knows where to look for her.
The bulk of this book is Holly trying to dodge the bounty hunters after her, and avoid getting taken back to the villain who wants to see her dead (after she returns the money). There’s a lot of fun times between Holly and Peyton along the way as they deal with their mutual past. Holly discovers Peyton doesn’t necessarily want to be bringing her in, but he has much more to lose than she does if he doesn’t. I liked their ultimate solution in dealing with the man who wants Holly dead. There was a great secondary cast, including Holly’s father and stepmother who come in toward the end.
I definitely enjoyed this book and it felt like a much bigger (richer) story than it’s oh-so-brief format would imply. I giggled and sighed happily throughout. Absolutely recommend anyone reading this. There may not be ginormous explosions or the fate of the world at stake, but it’s fun.
