Available now: The Secret Life of Violet Grant
I picked up Beatriz Williams’ latest because I was in the mood to just love a book. The good news: it was terrific. The bad news: now I am all out of Beatriz Williamses.
- If you like a saucy, independent heroine…
- if you like a smart historical romance, with a little mystery thrown in for good measure…
- If you enjoy a good plot-driven page turner, with a stunner of a character to root for…
- and, naturally, if you liked her other offerings, A Hundred Summers & Overseas, this book is for you.
Here’s my Rankings:
- 4.5/5 for characters
- 4.5/5 for plot
- 4.5/5 overall
- 2/5 steaminess
REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
Two independent women, two romances, and a mysterious parcel later, I’m still a fan of Beatriz Williams’ seemingly trademarked brand of historical fiction AND romance, with a bit of mystery to boot. Williams’ latest is pure delicious fun, in the same vein as her other two offerings, but with a darker mystery and a stunner of a main character- two in fact- I could really get behind. I may have noted plot driving over character development in her other novels, but this one has both in spades. Her command of banter is flawless. Looking forward to a fourth, please!
