’Til Heist Do Us Part

Berkley. Aug. 2024. 368p. ISBN 9780593641316. pap. $19. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
A year after successfully carrying off the high-stakes theft of a famous diamond necklace, Simi Chopra and her crew are out of money and luck. A dangerous Chicago mafia boss wants the jewels back, plus interest, or else. Adding insult to injury, Simi realizes that her ex, a master thief and onetime member of her crew, is connected to the new whereabouts of the loot. Jack Danger never meant to hurt or mislead Simi. He just kept getting into bad situations and burglaries gone wrong and is maybe a bit involved with the slightly evil and definitely vengeful con woman who’s holding the necklace over both his and Simi’s heads. Simi reluctantly agrees to pair up with Jack for one last heist and will need to decide if she is willing to risk her heart, along with her and her crew’s lives, in order to find a happily-ever-after.
VERDICT This rom-com brings back the cast of characters from Desai’s To Have and To Heist. Recommend to readers looking for a zippy and action-packed caper that recalls Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series.
