Teenage socialite Margo Manning leads a dangerous double life. By day, she dodges the paparazzi while soaking up California sunshine. By night, however, she dodges security cameras and armed guards, pulling off high-stakes cat burglaries with a team of flamboyant young men. In and out of disguise, she’s in all the headlines.

But then Margo’s personal life takes a sudden, dark turn, and a job to end all jobs lands her crew in deadly peril. Overnight, everything she’s ever counted on is put at risk. Backs against the wall, the resourceful thieves must draw on their special skills to survive. But can one rebel heiress and four kickboxing drag queens withstand the slings and arrows of truly outrageous fortune? Or will a mounting sea of troubles end them — for good?
I will always want to read Roehrig's books. He has this knack for blending so many different elements together and producing a fabulous story.

I am so, so intrigued by this one. I mean a cat burglar socialite with a team of kickboxing drag queens? Yeah, I am my interest is definitely piqued. And, I have seen this compared to Ocean's 8, which scores points in my book. All I know for sure is that Roehrig has yet to disappoint me.

What are you waiting on?

    1. The cover was so different from his previous two books, and strikes me as a little cheeky. I am interested in finding out if the cover matches the MC's demeanor.

    1. His first two books were great. I love how he combine a mystery with a romance with a coming-out-story. This one seems a little different, but I still expect it to be fabulous.

    1. He writes really great hybrid type books. They are first and foremost mysteries, but then he has romance, coming of age, and coming out stories blended in there. I really enjoy his books.
