Okay, this book was a fast read and it was pretty fun overall. Really it does have some good solid characters that are enjoyable. But overall it was also predictable. You knew what was going to happen before it happened. And while that doesnt matter sometimes and is a small issue, with this book for me it was a slightly big issue.

But, over all it was not a horrible book. And if someone doesnt mind something slightly predicable I would recommend it. The Cat is a fun character a bold heroine who has fun being the Robin Hood of her area. She steals from the greedy rich men and feeds poor families with her bounty. The Earl of Stockport takes a little bit to warm up to. Hes cocky, to full of himself and wont even admit when hes been robbed. Or at least that the woman broke into his house while he was in it.

But eventually you warm up to him. You learn to see his point of view and have to respect how he feels about things. Hes torn between caring for the thief and wanting to see justice done. By the end of this book he did get my respect. And over the entire book was an okay read.

I wanted to give this five stars for the cover alone. I think it's saucy and adorable.

I wish the story had hit me the same way. But it didn't. I kept forcing myself to read and read and a third of the way into the story just did not feel connected to either of the characters so reluctantly put it down. To my way of thinking there are simply too many dynamite books out there to waste time on one that doesn't click with you.
