Welcome back everyone, I’ve got a bunch of reviews over the coming weeks that I’m really excited to bring to you. It’s been a bit touch and go being able to get them all read in time but I think I’m getting there!
Returning to the Dukes Dynasty we’re on another murder mystery with just as much action as the previous books. If anything, I feel like it got amped up a little!
Olivia’s confidence in her skills amazed me given this book is a regency romance and women didn’t have many career choices. And yet she’s not comfortable moving around society like most of the women in regency romances.
Although Thorn is made out to be a bit of an arrogant rake, we know from the first two books that he’s more than he seems. As Olivia and Thorn work together we see more aspects of both their personalities coming out that, usually, complement each other quite well.
Roughly the first half of the book focuses on the romance, then as things escalate it twists into more of a murder mystery that happens to have some romance spattered in. Normally I’d find this change frustrating, but since we’re now three books into the series it’s good to see the wider story develop.
I can’t wait to find out more with Sheridan when the next book comes out next year. I really need to know who did it!
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; on Friday I’ll be reviewing Lost Time and Dead Time by D.L. Orton.
