Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along. Here's what you do:
Pick up your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others) Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!

"She almost believed him. She wondered if he believed it himself. But Kat had learned at a very young age that thieves live and die based on perception-her whole life was a lesson in sleight of hand. If someone thought her father had the paintings, then the truth wasn't going to save him." (page 28)

"'Great,' Gabrielle said from the couch. 'I ruined my nails for nothing.' 'Not for nothing,' Kat said. 'Thanks to you, Gabs, we just figured out a half dozen ways not to rob the Henley.' 'Mary Poppins?' Hale suggested four hours later. 'Do you know a way to make it rain between now and Tuesday?' Gabrielle replied. 'Five O'clock Shadows?' Hamish asked. 'Backup generators only give us fifteen second,' Simon said with a shake of his head.
They'd been through every con they'd ever heard of, and a few Kat guessed the Bagshaw brothers had made up on the spot, but she didn't notice the hour until she saw Gabrielle stiffle a yawn. Kat was too consumed by a ticking clock in the back of her mind. A deadline. A plan.
'Princess Bride?' Hamish offered, but his brother turned to him. 'Do you know where we can find a six-fingered man on such short notice'?" (pages 158-159)
