Product description

Product Description

December 1890. London, England.
Some seriously clever sleight of hand is needed if aspiring lawyer Caro Addison is ever going to enjoy this Christmas. To avoid an unwanted marriage proposal, she needs a distraction as neat as the tricks used by The Phantom, the audacious diamond thief who has left Scotland Yard clueless.
While her detective inspector uncle methodically hunts the villain, Caro decides to investigate a suspect of her own – the handsome Tobias Black, a magician extraordinaire, known as The Dark Duke. He’s the only one with the means, motive and opportunity but the art of illusion means not everything is as it seems, in both crime and affairs of the heart.
As Christmas Day draws near, Caro must decide whether it is worth risking reputations and friendships in order to follow her desires.

Another fast paced, clever, intriguing, and utterly charming story from Elizabeth Ellen Carter. Could not put it down as the mystery is not clear right until the final pages. Great characterisation, wonderful plot, beautiful writing. Loved this.

Thief of Hearts is perfect for lovers of light-hearted detective stories with a twist of romance, particularly if you like a bit of Christmas magic in the mix. Set in 1890 London this sparkling novella pairs law student and amateur sleuth Caro Addison with magician Tobias Black, The Dark Duke in the hunt for a daring thief known as The Phantom. The plot moves at a clipping pace and leaves readers guessing to the very last page. The short length didn't give me as much time as I'd have liked, but author Elizabeth Ellen Carter has done a good job of sketching in the necessary details. Overall, this story was lots of fun to read.
I received an advance reader copy of this story. This is my freely given review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Historical 14 November 2016
By JLB357 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I truly enjoyed this charming historical. A sweet romance, an unusual plot, and a young woman who just can't keep her nose out of any unsolved puzzle. Considering her insatiable curiosity, it's a good thing her uncle works for Scotland Yard. Light reading for a cozy evening.
5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery, Intrigue and Romance! 4 November 2016
By Teri Donaldson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you like mystery and intrigue mixed in with your romance, than this is the book for you.
The year is 1890 and for once, the heroine is studying to be a lawyer. She is smart, beautiful and does not want to be tied to an unwanted marriage proposal.
Enter The Phantom, a thief that makes valuable items disappear. It proves to be a distraction for Caro as she tries to help solve the case.
Along the way,she meets the dashing Tobias Black, The Dark Duke.
I loved this story as it is all about illusions and things not always being as they first seem.
It's refreshing to read a story about a heroine seeking an education and wanting to help her detective uncle solve the case. Mix that with a handsome hero and a little romance, it makes for a delightful read.
I was provided an ARC of this book. I have voluntarily read the book and the review is only my personal opinion.

Elizabeth Ellen Carter's "The Thief of Hearts" is a sweet read. It's a clean historical romance. It feels like a historical "Now You See Me." It has a few good twists and turns. It's a good holiday read.
