I enjoyed this book and it's characters.We see some character growth as  Robin and Creek come of age.And with that comes it had more NA subject matters,which wasn't really present in Robin in the Hood (book 1).However,given the fact that they had very little time to engage in anything other than trying to save themselves and those they love in book 1 and their age,anything past just getting to know each other wouldn't have been appropriate.In Stone of Thieves,Robin and Creek are old enough to engage in adult activities that would naturally occur in certain situations(trying to to give any spoilers.so enough about that).Stone of Thieves takes them on a journey to Italy to find Robin's mother and her true heritage.They find themselves in a group of  gypsies, hides from Robin's other family members. I've always found the gypsies culture fascinating because their way of life is so different and carefree. Here,they is also plenty if magic in there air that places a  part in Robin's journey to find herself and the truth of her heritage.As Robin and Creek embark on this adventurous journey they must overcome many obstacles that could prove to tear them apart.

Summary from Goodreads:
“Is it any wonder I became a bank robber?” 
But she never dreamed she’d fall in love…

Wealthy high school student Robin McArthur thinks she has it all figured out when it comes to bilking her wealthy dad for guilt money as a substitute for his genuine affection. Until one day he suffers a stroke, and she learns the brutal truth:
They’re broke.
Her stepmom has skipped the country.
And everyone from bankers to bookies has lined up in her dad's hospital room to collect on the millions he's racked up in debt.

Panicked and desperate, Robin figures she has two choices. Either surrender to the pestering caseworker and live in a skanky foster home, or take a chance and sneak her dad out of the hospital to make a run for it. Little does she know that stealing a car and hitting the road means that before the day is through, she will rob her first bank.

Now an outlaw, Robin finds a backwoods trailer park to hide her dad from authorities. There, she encounters Creek, a local bad boy who also commits crimes to provide for their motley neighbors. Realizing she could use Creek’s help, Robin proposes an ingenious plan—they should team up to rob banks together. But when their partnership leads to a romance that turns Robin’s world upside down, she soon begins to discover that people are more precious than pocketbooks, and real love means opening your heart to the kinds of treasures money can’t buy…
