Book Reviews: The Inadvertent Thief by Leti Del Mar

It took me a little while to get into the storyline, but once I did it was hard to put it down. The world building is well done. One of the things I enjoyed about the book was the suspense. Leti Del Mar's take on the suspense will certainly hold your attention. She does a great job of providing you with just enough information that you want to keep going.

I liked how Vivien and Walt/Nathan interacted in the beginning and how she saw him as a challenge and tried to keep her distance, refused some of his favors and managed to stand her ground even if she felt like melting at his feet.

From the very first word, the details build into a crescendo of tension, along the main plot and the romantic arcs.

The star of the story is Vivien. I was engrossed immediately and Leti Del Mar kept my attention as Vivien, Walter, George and Carlos, the main characters at the core of the story, are involved in finding the "infamous" thief.

It's a story full of twists and turns and keeps you guessing to the end. An end that will bring a smile to your face.
The Inadvertent Thief is an entertaining read, a clever combination of action and suspense. I give it a solid 4 stars.
