What was that series of books about art thieves with an autistic character you like?
the Genevieve Lenard series by Estelle Ryan (please know they’re not perfect though- theres use of functioning labels etc)
(i look over the iffy bits because i find reading a book series with an autistic protagonist and a huge loving surrogate family very very comforting)(plus art crime)(its a hoot)(but its not perfect)(also the format of each book is predictable + follows a routine and i like that too)

Fuming, Caroline went back to kneading bread. Enzo just stood and clapped her husband on the shoulder. “Enjoy the breads and sweets,” he winked. “She’ll be riled about this episode until the show comes back next season. Just let her bake.”
Still at a loss, Klaus watched Enzo go as Caroline muttered to herself about muffins and wasted opportunities.
