TO LOVE A THIEF is an interesting fast-paced novella that would be best described as an action/adventure romance. It follows Clarisse, a thief who is after a remnant of the French Blue, that Nick, a security expert, is in possession of. When the jewel that Nick has turns out to be fake, Clarisse and Nick, out of necessary, find themselves teaming up to get the jewel.
TO LOVE A THIEF is an extremely enjoyable read with great characters and a good plot. The characters are very well-written, as they are the sort of characters that are both likable and incredibly interesting, though not completely realistic, they still show vulnerability.
The relationship between the main characters does move rather fast at times, but this isn't unexpected considering that it is a novella. The best part of this novella is without a doubt the plot, as it is excellent and which Chérie De Sues delivers even better than expected. In fact, it was such a good plot that it would have been nice if it was expanded more, as the novella felt like it was over too quickly, when the plot could have been developed more. If this had been done, I believe it would have been a top-notch book, however even without the expansion, TO LOVE A THIEF is still a fantastic novella.
