One fateful July morning forever changed the lives of Sémya Slotin and her best friend Polliannah Guryev.

Vincent Edgerton, the only man Sémya has ever loved, was taken from her by an explosion and a fire that she couldn’t understand, trust, nor explain. It left her alone, hurt, angry and desperately seeking answers. On top of everything, she is also incredibly hormonal; Sémya Slotin is going to be a mother.

Polliannah just healed from losing her husband but seeing her best friend grieving is not only breaking her heart, it has been a strain on their once close-knit relationship. She is afraid that Sémya will completely disappear into her grief. Thankfully, Polliannah can always seek refuge with the handsome Chief Superintendent James Connelly. In the past three months, he has become her safe haven. But when they finally give in to each other and Jim reveals his true feeling for her, Polliannah pulls away. Is she ready to put herself out there again?

Then all of the sudden, Sémya, the pregnant Detective Extraordinaire is chasing art thieves across the globe, making dangerous deals and finally meeting her father… It’s all about ex-lovers and new ones, a priceless painting, con artists, baby bumps, an impromptu trip to Moscow, designer dresses, teacakes, a birthday ball and reconnecting with your roots.

With everything that has happened this year, Sémya and Polliannah are more vulnerable and exposed than they have ever been. Will Jim’s love and trust be enough to ease Polliannah’s doubts? Will Sémya find out what happened to Vincent? Welcome to the Stages & Thieves saga, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

I wasn't really sure what to expect when I first read this book since 'Stages & Thieves' was the fifth book from the Sémya Slotin Mystery. At the beginning, it was a bit confusing, because I have no idea what was happening in the previous book, and I get this feeling that I hadn't been introduced to the characters properly, But still, I can't stop reading this book. The story and plot make you want to read more! I was hooked with the mystery surrounding Semya's family. It makes me want to read the previous books and get to know more about Semya and Polliannah and how they get to where they are now. And I wanted to know what will happen to them in the next book.

Overall, 'Stages & Thieves' was an enjoyable read, packed with mystery, danger and romance. I would recommend this book to mystery lovers. This book could be read as a stand alone, but I think I would have enjoyed the story a bit more if I start from the first book.

I received a copy of Stages & Thieves by Danielle-Claude Ngontang Mba from the author/CLP Blog Tours as part of the book tour.
