Once again Sandra Brown has delivered an incredible romantic thriller in Thick as Thieves. I have been reading Sandra Brown's books for years, and have loved everyone. I love her characters and the descriptions of the setting. I loved every page and could not put it down. I have been reading Sandra Brown's books for years, and have loved everyone. I loved all the surprise plot twists that happened throughout the story. Thick as Thieves is the story of Arden Maxwell and Ledge Burnet. For the past twenty years Arden has believed that her father Joe, robbed a local mercantile in Penton, Texas, killed a man and then disappeared with half a million dollars, leaving her and her older sister, Lisa as orphans. Both Arden and Ledge's lives are forever changed by those events twenty years ago. Arden is pregnant, and has decided to move back to their house in Penton to raise her daughter. I love that the story has flashbacks to the events twenty years ago that are told from the perspective of everyone involved in the burglary. Arden reaches out to Ledge to renovate the house, not knowing of Ledge's involvement in the burglary. As Arden searches for clues about her father, she begins a volatile relationship with Ledge. Arden and Ledge share secrets, although Ledge does not share all of his secrets with Arden. They both battle their feelings for one another. Thick as Thieves is filled with the bittersweet moments and surprise plot twists that I have come to love and expect in Sandra Brown's stories. She did not disappoint with her delivery of those in Thick as Thieves. I loved all the surprise plot twists, and was not expecting most of them. It was an incredible story and Sandra Brown has once again proven that she is an amazing storyteller. I love that Arden and Ledge get their happily ever after, even after Arden finds out his involvement in the burglary. I love how she explains her decision to Ledge. Thick as Thieves truly kept me on the edge of my seat with everything that was happening to Arden and Ledge as they searched for clues about her father and the missing money. It was a truly wonderful story and I was so happy that everything got resolved. Although, some of the outcomes are bittersweet.
