Recs for if you love KJ Charles? em Romance - from historical to contemporary (Maio 2023)


Death in the Spires by KJ Charles

Excellent ~ Couldn’t put it down!

What I Liked:
* The Seven Wonders as a college group that included two women and five men of various backgrounds ~ their lives were changed one night and ten years later might be set to rights…maybe
* The mystery of who killed Toby Feynsham, the impact of his death on the Seven Wonders, the secrets unearthed, and how it was eventually solved
* Jeremy “Jem” Kite: grammar school scholarship winner to Oxford, had a brilliant future until a murder destroyed his life, living a plodding existence until a catalyst turns him into an amateur sleuth ~ tenacious, brilliant, and wiser than he realizes
* Nicholas “Nicky” Rook: witty, intelligent, athletic, wicked with a sword, good friend, did well at Oxford and returned to teach there, deeper than he seems
* Aaron Oyede: physician, bright, black, from wealthy family, studied at Oxford, strong, had secrets, was in love with Ella
* Ella Feyhsham: Toby’s sister, brilliant, controlled by her family, was in love with Aaron,
* Hugo “Hugh” Morley-Adams: entitled, forceful, athletic fencer and runner, involved in politics, engaged to wealthy woman, secret keeper
* Toby Feynshaw: wealthy, in line for a title, string-puller, enjoyed being admired, bright and beautiful but his shine seemed to fade and then it was snuffed out
* Thinking about how secrets can destroy or save people and how secrets exposed can do the same…
* The ending and how it all came together

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* How cruel, self-absorbed, and selfish some of the characters were
* Not know what the future holds in store for the characters after that last page of the book

Did I enjoy this book? Yes
Would I read more by this author? Definitely

Thank you to NetGalley and Storm Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review.

It was wonderful to revisit this series, I almost forgot how much fun it is! And Cornell Collins did a great job of narrating the story.

K.J. Charles never disappoints. Pat and Fen's story has love, adventure, mystery, family secrets...and K.J. Charles' distinctive excellent characters and wit. Now I'm off to reread Think of England!

This one's quite the page-turner! Unlike Charles's other works it's very light on romantic relationships, but it still has the same wonderfully written characters and attention to historical detail I've come to expect of her writing.

Received via NetGalley.
