GoodReads Monday

This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.

This week’s pick was an easy one. I am continuing to look ahead to next year and all of the great books that are coming out. For this week I have chosen the next book in one of my favorite series that will be coming out in March! I have received an e-arc, for it, and it is taking a lot of control not to read it now, but I will wait a little bit closer to the publishing date to crack that one open.

A Sinister Revenge by Deanna Raybourn

Veronica Speedwell # 8

Publication Date: March 7, 2023

Summary from GoodReads:

Veronica’s natural-historian beau, Stoker, has been away in Bavaria for months and their relationship is at an impasse. But when Veronica shows up before him with his brother, Tiberius, Lord Templeton-Vane, he is lured back home by an intriguing job offer: preparing an iguanodon for a very special dinner party.

Tiberius has received a cryptic message—along with the obituaries of two recently deceased members of his old group of friends, the Seven Sinners—that he too should get his affairs in order. Realizing he is in grave danger but not knowing why, he plans a reunion party for the remaining Sinners at his family estate to lure the killer out while Veronica and Stoker investigate.

As the guests arrive and settle in, the evening’s events turn deadly. More clues come to light, leading Veronica, Stoker, and Tiberius to uncover a shared past among the Sinners that has led to the fatal present. But the truth might be far more sinister than what they were prepared for.

If you like funny, romantic, historical mysteries with a feisty female narrator than this is a series you really should consider picking up. I can also highly recommend the audiobooks as the narrator does a fabulous job of portraying Veronica. There is also a slow burn romance between Veronica and Stoker that takes at least the first two books, maybe three before they finally admit their feeling for each other. Here is a link for my review for series up to book six.
