She is afraid that Sémya will completely disappear into her grief. Thankfully, Polliannah can always seek refuge with the handsome Chief Superintendent James Connelly. In the past three months, he has become her safe haven. But when they finally give in to each other and Jim reveals his true feeling for her, Polliannah pulls away.

My Review 4.0 stars!
Stages and Thieves is book 5 in the Semya Slotin mystery series and is not only the book in the series during her pregnancy and all she goes through with it, but also of finally meeting her birth father. But more then that it is an incredible mystery. A mystery that revolves around a painting that upon seeing it, she discovers it looks like her. As well as the beginning of her unraveling the mystery of the disappearance of her beloved Vincent that was assumed dead in an explosion. 
During this book Semya and her best friend Polliannah spend a lot of time at odd's. Both mourning the loss of men in their lives and struggling with how to help each other move on from the loss. Polliannah spends much of  the story torn on how to handle her changing relationship with Jim, who has been her rock and her support through all of her bad days. On top of the relationship change, she also struggles with how to be back home among her family and all the turmoil that came with her leaving home. 
Mystery stories are perhaps one of my favorite to read and this one did not disappoint and leaves you with an ending knowing that the story will continue into the next book.
