Emma is sometimes a burglar for ex-spouses who got a raw deal in the divorce. She’s also a psychology student—at least partly because she doesn’t understand herself. She’s sort of a nerdy secret warrior fighting injustice, and this is a comforting thought when she looks in the mirror or spends another night alone.

Overview

Emma is sometimes a burglar for ex-spouses who got a raw deal in the divorce. She’s also a psychology student—at least partly because she doesn’t understand herself. She’s sort of a nerdy secret warrior fighting injustice, and this is a comforting thought when she looks in the mirror or spends another night alone. Then through one of the burglaries, she gets a laptop that has incriminating information on it. This brings her into the world of political corruption and dangerous thugs. It also brings her into the condo of a sexy lawyer who seems to see the secret warrior in her. Or is he only using her for his own political gain?

The Sometime Burglar is an engaging, funny novella. It's longer than a short story, shorter than a novel, and a smooth read throughout. Emma is delightful as the overworked, underloved psychology graduate student who pays the rent by assisting in burglaries commissioned by the recently divorced against their ex-spouses. She seeks legal help from Cade, an up-and-coming lawyer who wants to do the right thing but also is enough of a realist to realize he'll have to play ball with some underhanded characters if he's ever going to get elected to office, a position from which he believes he can make a difference. The writing is strong and the editing good. The characters came across as believable. The humor was wry and occasionally made me laugh out loud. If you're looking for a quick, light read to brighten your mood, give this story a try. You'll be glad you did.
