Two wrongs don’t make a right . . . except when they do.
For con artist Chaney Rose, life hasn’t been easy. In desperate need of cash, she readily agrees to find Mischief, a stolen racehorse. Hunting for clues, she breaks into the suspected horse thief’s home only to be caught—with a few pilfered items in her pockets—by the police detective who’s tailing her.
By-the-book Adam Thorne was fired from his church because of his father’s involvement with the valuable thoroughbred. In a burst of Les Miserables-inspired grace, Adam tells the detective that he gave Chaney the stolen items.
Adam wants Chaney to find his missing father. When Chaney learns that Mischief’s owner intends to kill the racehorse, she needs Adam’s help expose the cruel plan before it’s too late.
Will a con artist with a conscience and a minister without a ministry risk imprisonment to do the wrong thing for the right reason?
My thoughts: I love that this story is a combination of Leverage and Les Miserables, since I enjoy both! Johnnie does an excellent job of writing characters that leap off the pages and make you root for them. I especially appreciated Adam and his love for the Lord through thick and thin. Chaney and Adam are an unlikely duo, but I loved that! This is a wonderful story to pick up. I look forward to the next book in the series!
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
