The Way of the Flesh is a brilliant, atmospheric, historical, crime fiction novel that had me completely enthralled. The story is rich in the history of medical advancements and butchery performed during this period; particularly those surrounding the development of anaesthesia.

It’s In His Kiss by Julia Quinn, narrated by Simon Prebble is the seventh Bridgerton novel and shares the romance of Hyacinth, the youngest and most outspoken of the siblings. A diary, hidden jewels and wicked banter made this tale delightful.
Murder, a stellar narrator, and a girl with two-hearts how could I resist The Impossible Girl by Lydia King? A brilliant tale from start to finish I quickly became caught up in Cora’s tale. Fans of historical fiction, romance, suspense and murder-mysteries will want to grab a copy.

A feisty heroine, a troubled, soon to be Duke, and two orphaned girls made The Governess Game by Tessa Dare an addictive, swoon-worthy edition to the Girl Meets Duke series. Pirates, malaise, and lessons aided in delivering a heartwarming tale that left me wishing Tessa Dare released a new book every month. A girl can dream right?
