My Thoughts 

This was a fun, almost cozy mystery, short story that features Ms. Ridley’s Wynchester series family (if you’re reading the series - although Nobody’s Princess published first, this one takes place directly before). 

I always enjoy Erica’s new releases and am so pleased to have had the opportunity to read an early copy and I am absolutely looking forward  to reading more of this Wynchester-adjacent series in the future! 

Recommended for Wynchester fans and cozy heist fans (is cozy heist a thing?).

A Regency-set comedic caper featuring a book club of meddling spinsters.

Miss Sybil Stamper is the least fancy member of the reading circle known as The Heist Club. To her friends, bespectacled Sybil is the Queen of Lists, but she’d rather be belle of the ball. When she finally acquires an evening gown, her life looks like it’s falling into place. But when a client’s valuable objects go missing, not only is Sybil’s happy ending in jeopardy—so are the futures of other young ladies just like her!

With the help of the Wild Wynchesters—a uniquely talented family of caper-committing siblings who don’t let “laws” stop them from righting wrongs—Sybil and her club of delightfully bookish spinsters take on the heist of the Season.


"Erica Ridley is a delight!"
