*Only joking, obviously buy it from your favourite bookshop!

‘There is no feeling in the world quite like breaking the rules, of doing the exact opposite of what a grown woman is supposed to do… And getting away with it.’

I bloody loved this book! Welcome to the equally high stakes worlds of pickpocketing, and being a bridesmaid at your rich frenemy’s wedding.

You love Cat immediately – a down-on-her-luck cynic with a heart of gold (but you can’t pay the bills with that), she discovers a penchant for pickpocketing. But like a modern Robin Hood, she only steals from the fancy suit jackets of chauvinist city boys. Until she gets a bigger pay-off in her sights: the whopper of a diamond in her friend's wedding ring.

I wish I could go down to the Oceana hotel to drink stolen champagne with her and gorgeous bartender-cum-con artist Jake (who also has a knack for understanding a persona by their cocktail choice). Their fake dating flirtation is one of the great pleasures of the book, and (no spoilers) Ellis keeps you guessing about whose feelings are real. I hope that the tease of a sequel in the ending comes true!

Combining high-stakes glamour with relatable sarcasm, this rom-com is as sparkly and cutting as a stolen diamond. (And has better metaphors than that one.)
