A thief.

-- Synopsis --

Heart Thief by Ker Dukey
Monsters come in many forms.
Some want shiny new toys to play with—others want blood.
Mona Walters dreams of adventure, of a world beyond the shoreline she’s confined to. She yearns for vibrancy in her dull, mundane existence, but succumbs to the bleakness.
Until the necklace her sister wore the night she was brutally murdered shows up on her door wrapped in a neat bow, fueling her to run away and seek out the person responsible for stealing her sister’s life.
Mona wished for more—for color in her gray world.
What she didn’t realize was just how much more she would get.
And that the world outside her own was soaked in red—blood red.
The world she dreamed of is made of nightmares.
A rich, influential world of two brothers—and once they have her in their sights, they plan to keep her there.
Her father kept her secluded for a reason.
Be careful what you wish for.
There's a thief out there, and he's coming for Mona's heart.

-- My Two Cents --

I'm not sure I'll ever look at the Disney flick Moana the same way again!

Mona and her older sister, Clara, grew up on an island run by their father. Their congregation is viewed as a cult and the sisters aren't blind to how corrupt and hypocritical their father's preachings and rules are. They know that the world outside of theirs is a world of many wonders and despite how much their people fight against that influence, despite the punishment for even having such thoughts, these sisters can't wait to escape the island and discover the world beyond. They were born for adventure and the island just can't hold them. When Clara disappears and then shows up murdered, it was never more clear that Mona's life would never be the same again.

It's a cult. With a cult mentality. There's even a character (Eli) who wholly believes in 'the word' and tries to inhibit Mona's quest for freedom
Secrets galore. Who murdered Clara? Mona's desperation and determination for answers leads her into the arms of Colt and Cash
I'm still not sure which of the brothers Mona is with... Colt? Cash? Both?

If you're a fan of fairy tale retellings, I'm sure you'll get a kick out of this one!
