Perfect Scoundrels

Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter

Kat's got a new job with an intriguing new client-- Marcus. Hazel Hale has died and left the control of Hale Industries to Hale with her lawyer as the trustee. It doesn't pass the smell test to Marcus, so he hires Kat to find the real will. But whomever changed the will knows the truth about Hale and Kat and isn't afraid to use it against them. Kat's a little too close to this one. She's conning a conner, and the consequences are personal.

Guys, you know how much I love Ally Carter. Lots of action, lots of twists, lots of romantic tension and great supporting characters. This third installment in the Heist Society series does not disappoint.

I liked how the con was a change of pace, and how much more of the family got involved. I liked Kat's complicated feelings when she notices how her uncles are aging and what a central role she and her gang are starting to take. I like that she's not really at peace with it, even at the end of the book. I also really like the examination of the fact that Hale is part of Kat's world, but he's not. There's a whole side to him that she doesn't know and she isn't sure she likes it. I really appreciate and enjoy the way Carter can have her characters grapple with some big issues, and not always find solutions to them, without it taking away from the action and adventure.

There's a reason she's one of my favorites and this book just further solidifies that.
