We’ve gotten a few requests for this one, but thanks to Emma for putting the bug in our ear about it:
I’ve finally gotten around to listening to the podcast and in episode 272 one of you mentioned that heist books are great. I agree, could you recommend some please?
Sarah: The one with the woman. In the gold dress. She’s Black and steals from people to fund her clinic.
Uptown Thief by Aya de Leon. Dafina book!!!!!
I am so proud of my brain.
I would love more heist books.
Amanda: I know you read that disappointing heist anthology, Sarah, but is the one good one available on it’s own?
Sarah: I don’t know I have not looked. The Ass Heist anthology!
Amanda: It is! Strange Tango by Michelle Dayton is the novella Sarah like the best in that anthology.
Amanda: Lamora was great!
I suspect there are a lot of heist plots in fantasy and science fiction than there are contemporary romance, but I would love more romance heists.
I am so looking forward to the all-lady Oceans film. Oceans 8?
Carrie: I don’t know any heist romances. The closest I can think of is the books Jennifer Crusie writes about cons:
Faking It is the best!
RHG: That movie is SMOKING.
Sarah: I heard there is a female version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in the works which could be brilliant, though the original probably did not age at all well.
I’m still very curious. I think heists with ladies will be a very big thing and I hope it reaches romance too. I mean, there are some days when successfully balancing every part of my life feels like a heist!
Amanda: This comment thread also has some great suggestions.
NB: We really want recommendations from books you’re read and enjoyed. Knowing a book has that element is great, but knowing a book has that element and that you enjoyed it or know someone who did is better!
Tell us what books you’ve loved that feature heists!
