Watchmaker’s Heart by Juli D. Revezzo

The Watchmaker’s Heart by Juli D. Revezzo delivered a historical romance with steampunk elements and a nice bit of suspenseful mystery. Penelope “Phoebe” Lockswell is a bit of a tinkerer and has created a somewhat scandalous diffuser. I enjoyed this feisty heroine, and Revezzo quickly pulled me into this tale.

I limited myself to fifty to seventy-five pages a day. (sometimes a few more to end a chapter) At almost 600 pages, it gave me an adventure I could look forward to every evening.

Dawn’s Early Light by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris

Gads, I just love the dynamic duo of Braun and Books in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series. Dawn’s Early Light has them traveling to the Americas, in danger and advancing their partnership. James Langton is such an unbelievable pleasure to listen to and I just slip into the world. Steampunk, a suspenseful case, and deliciously good banter had me smiling.
