The story is engaging and has excellent pacing. Every sentence serves its purpose. The diction is appropriate for the setting but not to the extent that the reader can’t comprehend the text. Even though the entire book is written in the third person, the reader can easily empathize with the characters. The background characters were developed well. The twist regarding the villain is unexpected. The author conveyed life morals without deviating from the plot, that life is precious, looks can be deviant, and that the most important thing in a relationship is mutual respect for one another. 

The author included descriptions about the weather but there was no additional detail that suggested the story’s setting is historical.  Caroline and her subplot regarding her philanthropic work dominated Pierce’s masked endeavors. There could be more depth to his character. The climax felt rushed, Daphne’s and Caroline’s relationship felt incomplete. 

‘How to Steal a Thief’s Heart’ is one of the most entertaining books in the historical romance genre.
