Veronica and Stoker are back for another adventure in the latest book in the Veronica Speedwell series! An Unexpected Peril was a delightful treat and really hit on all the features I love about this series from strong, unconventional female leads to an engaging murder mystery to impersonating royalty to a great romantic relationship. I truly loved every second of reading this and it might be one of my favorites in the series.
The Intimacy Experiment
By Rosie Danan Publisher: Berkley Books Publication Date: April 6, 2021 Series or Standalone: The Roommate #2 Links: Amazon – Barnes & Noble– Goodreads Rating:
I’ve been putting off this review for over a week now as it’s hard to find the right words to describe why I loved this book. The Intimacy Experiment felt unlike any other book I’ve read before. Something about it just left a mark on me. Not only is it a great romance, but it is a great story about finding yourself and your community.
Before even starting this book, I knew I was going to love it and I was so glad to be proven right. Lillian Bowman was my favorite Wallflower from the group we were first introduced to in Secrets of a Summer Night and I was so excited to dive into her story and watch her butt heads with Lord Westcliff. It Happened One Autumn was everything I wanted and more – truly a perfect enemies-to-lovers romance!
A Murderous Relation is Stoker and Veronica’s fifth adventure in the Veronica Speedwell series. While I love this series dearly, this is my least favorite in the series. Don’t get me wrong – I still really enjoy this book, but I also wanted more from it the first time I read it. On my second reread, I did grow to appreciate it a bit more, but I still think it’s the weakest book in the series thus far.
Despite being a historical romance fan, I’ve surprisingly read very few novels by Lisa Kleypas. After reading Then Came You and Dreaming of You and loving both of them, I decided to dive into some of her backlist, starting with the Wallflowers series.
If you haven’t been able to tell yet, I love the Veronica Speedwell series with a passion! I feel like its a series that doesn’t get much hype, but it’s so good and I think everyone should read it! A Dangerous Collaboration is our fourth installment in the series and it is the one were all my dreams come true! Just kidding – but seriously this one finally, finally delivers on the slowburn romance hovering under the surface between Stoker and Veronica.
The Ex Talk
By Rachel Lynn Solomon Publisher: Berkley Release Date: January 26, 2021 Series or Standalone: Standalone Links: Amazon – Barnes & Noble – Goodreads Rating:
If you’re a fan of rom-coms, The Ex Talk is definitely for you. This book was so much fun and I had a blast while reading it. There were definitely a few parts that were a little over the top and required some suspension of disbelief, but I honestly didn’t mind at all as this book left me with a smile on my face at the end.
