I'm not going to lie I had seen the movie first before I realized this was a book, which is why I waited so long to read it. Both are good, and tell the same story, just in slightly different ways.
This book is the true girls can do anything boys can do better. Dolly Rawlins, Linda Pirelli, Shirley Miller all lost husbands in a robbery gone wrong. Their husbands were conmen who had done many other jobs like this before and Dolly's husband had been the head man in charge. After several months these women decided to try and do the robbery again themselves but this time successfully. They train together and work together to make this happen and bring in a fourth to help with the getaway named Belle O'Reilly. They become a team throughout the months they worked together and when the day finally comes for the heist all their hard work just might pay off.
Overall I enjoyed this book. It did have some slow moments at times, but the other fast-paced moments made up for it. Dolly and the other women were amazing and did such a good job throughout the whole book with all they had to deal with. Not only were they dealing with the trauma of losing their husbands but they were also dealing with the repercussions of the lives their husbands had lived. This at times put them in dangerous situations but with their fast-thinking, they were able to find ways out and in the end showed all the men whose boss.
Both the book and the movie were so good! While there were differences between the two they were necessary in order to update the story while also sticking close to the original for the bigger details.
