Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott

Front Flap: Dani has been trained as a thief by the best- her mother. Together, they move from town to town, targeting wealthy homes and making a living by stealing antique silver. They never stay in one place long enough to make real connection, real friends- a real life. In the beach town of Heaven, though, everything changes. For the first time, Dani starts to feel at home. She's making friends and has even met a guy. But these people can never know the real dani- because of who she is. When it turns out that her new friend lives in the house they've targeted for their next job and the cute guy is a cop, Dani must question where her loyalties lie: with the life she's always known- or the one she's always wanted. I was hooked into this book once I started reading. It's so different to me! How a girl with her mother just goes around stealing silver and never getting caught. I really could not imagine living like that, but then I guess if you're used to something or born into it, you don't know any different. And Dani def wants to be normal. To live in one place and make friends and know people. But she can't. Until she starts getting too friendly with Alison. And then with the cop, Greg. But it's so sad when her mom has to go to the hospital because of cancer. The most horrible thing you could think of happening to your parents! I knew something was up with her momm, she just was denying it. But I'm glad in the end Dani does settle down. And even though we don't find out what happens to her mother, I know they both loved each other alot.
