Review: The Secret Life of Violet Grant

Available now: The Secret Life of Violet Grant

****4.5/5 stars

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.

Recommended readers:

  • 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


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!
