She wants to steal his Van Gogh. He wants to steal her heart.

Some people would call Clementine Abernathy a criminal. She considers herself a modern day Robin Hood, who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. Not exactly on the up-and-up, but she knows what it’s like to lose everything. Her latest heist involves swiping a priceless Van Gogh from its owner, who’s supposed to be an egotistical trust-fund brat.

Turns out Jack David is a sexy, kind-hearted man…and Clementine is in trouble. Falling for her mark would make her the World’s Dumbest Conwoman, but Jack is charmingly persistent, always singing sweet songs in her ear.

And that earth-shattering kiss? She never stood a chance.

Now she’s imagining a fresh start with this dashing man, but that means telling Jack about her past. And other nefarious sorts are after the same painting. Too soon, Clementine learns what it means to risk it all for love.

Okay, I’m calling it: Kelly Siskind is officially one of my new favourite authors. I read New Orleans Rush earlier this year and fell completely in love with the characters and Kelly’s writing. Between that and the fact I’m a fan of both Van Gogh and Elvis, I was excited about Don’t Go Stealing My Heart.

There’s so much to love about this book, starting with the two main characters: Clementine, the Robin Hood-esque thief who steals from the rich to help the poor, and Jack, the Elvis tribute artist who loves his small town, its people, and most of all his family, and will do whatever he can to help people. These two are so layered; I loved how bits and pieces of their lives and personalities were revealed with perfect timing, making it was impossible not to feel for them, relate to them, and root for them. They had instant chemistry and their interactions had me grinning, squeeing, and swooning. The side characters were great too, and I loved the small town, close-knit feel of the setting. Whichway was ridiculously charming - it’s the type of place I’d love to live in, or at least visit. I'd be so down to attend that Elvis festival every year!

Full of witty banter and well-developed characters, this engaging, fun, and sexy story will make you laugh, pull at your heartstrings, and have you falling in love. The ending is a thrill ride that had me completely enthralled as I zoomed through the pages. I know I’ll be recommending this book as often as I recommend New Orleans Rush (which is A LOT), and I can’t wait to see what Kelly Siskind comes up with next.
