    A GIFT FOR GUILE is an entertaining story of redemption, with enjoyable and strong characters, great dialogue and a mystery to satisfy even the most dedicated mystery fan. My favorite thing about this story is the author's dedication to building the characters and the story. Esther Bales is facing an identity crisis and on a quest to make up for her past misdeeds but due to those misdeeds, London is not the safest place for her to be, so she has her very own personal escort in the form of her brother-in-law's closest friend. Sir Samuel Brass is a devotee of the law, having lived his life on the right side of it, enforcing it and his attraction to Esther is unexpected and unwelcome because she operates on the other side of the law, but he is determined to keep her safe while helping her complete her mission. But Esther's path to redemption lies in accepting herself, even the less than savory parts and watching her get to that place of acceptance was a really enjoyable process. Samuel has a good heart and best intentions but he's a bit clumsy in the delivery, often putting his foot in his mouth, but there is no doubt that he has Esther's best interests at heart. I liked that they actually took time to talk to each other and that they put in the work needed to build their relationship. In addition, there is enough mystery to get the heart pounding and a lot of humor to soften the explosions between them. One thing is sure: Samuel has his hands full with Esther and there is never a dull moment between them. A GIFT FOR GUILE has something for every reader and if you love strong characters, an engaging mystery and witty dialogue, then this is one book that should be on your reading list. Ms. Johnson is a new to me author but I really enjoyed her writing and will be looking forward to more from her.
