London, WWII: Electra McDonnell and her family are thieves, having worked outside of the law for her whole life. But when she’s caught red-handed trying to steal a safe full of jewels, instead of being arrested, she’s enlisted by the British government to join the war effort for them instead. This first installment in a new historical series is an absolute delight. Enjoy! - McKenna
