Mrs. Gordon Baillie, or Annie, is a Victorian con woman that I knew nothing about before picking up this book. I loved reading about her wide variety of ways in which to swindle people out of something, and it was exciting to learn about her ways of escape just before she would have been caught.
There were some parts that created a more humorous view of Annie’s situations, and I enjoyed those as I found myself laughing out loud! The story is written so that while we are learning about her, it feels more like a story and less like a non-fiction history book. It was a good mix of info and story.
I thought that this was a well-researched novel with information that was put together in a wonderful, and enjoyable way! It was so interesting to read, and I think that readers that enjoy learning about infamous females in history will enjoy this!
