Praise

Advance praise for THE TENDERNESS OF THIEVES:

“The meandering, dreamy language—grass is ‘tender with the newness of life,’ and Jane’s desire makes her heart ‘flutter like the wings of a hummingbird’—is perfect for the hazy, hot summer days depicted.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Full of passion, tenderness, and fun…readers will enjoy the chemistry that simmers between Jane and Handel….For a summer romance with a twist, Freitas delivers.”–Publishers Weekly

“Both the romance and mystery are skillfully told, with smooth, believable dialogue and well-developed characters….The surprise ending is likely to spark discussion, especially for those with strong feminist viewpoints.”–Booklist

“Freitas mixes sweet and sour in a way that illustrates the messiness of life….This is recommended for mature readers, who will find that the love story resonates well after the book is finished.”–VOYA

“[D]ramatic prose gives a noir-like tone to the beachside setting.”–BCCB
