  • Fly Free, My Dear

    This book was absolutely nothing like I expected, but it really worked. Readers should be aware that this isn't your typical historical romance. Initially I was confused by the extremely long chapter titles and the magical/fantasy element, but then as I got used to the writing style and world, things started to click. The enemies to lovers trope was done very well, and Cecilia and Ned were wonderful together. Their banter was spot on and I was laughing so hard while reading. The unique cast of characters was so colorful and hilarious. I especially loved ever loyal Pleasance. I didn't think that I would find lady pirates, robbery, and attempted assassination so entertaining! The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels was such a clever and imaginative story. It was exciting, empowering, and so funny. I did find some scenes overly descriptive and the pacing a bit slow at times, which made the book feel overly long, but it was a great ride. The ending brought a huge smile to my face and I was so happy that Cecelia finally made it to the library. ;) I can't wait to see where this series goes next. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

  • Totally Disappointed - Not What I Expected

    ** 2.5 Stars ** The GoodReads blurb for this book made it sound like a fun, entertaining, lighthearted, witty, and exciting read. I could hardly wait to get my hands on either the purchased copy or an ARC – whichever came first. To say I was sorely disappointed would be putting it mildly. Please take this as just one person’s opinion because we all like different things and we all find different things humorous. I’m sure some of you will read the book and love it – I just did not. After reading it, I am of the belief that they need to invent a whole new genre just for this book. I think it was just too much – too much of everything – too busy – it reminded me of some of the descriptions I’ve read from people having LSD trips. If you get rid of the chaff, you have a nice love story. I couldn’t bring myself to like the heroine, Cecilia, but I did like the hero Nate. He was actually the only person in the story I did like. In this alternate/fantasy universe, the members of the Wisteria Society fly their houses from place to place, dislike and disrespect men, love nobody, hire assassins to murder their friends, poison their husbands (or stab them, or …), steal the possessions of others, well, you name it – I sort of thought they were worse than the mafia. Queen Victoria even flies Windsor Castle into battle. I really, really wanted to love this book as much as I loved the book blurb, but I just couldn’t get there. The writing is well done, I loved the author’s way of turning a phrase and the way she handled the internal dialogue, etc. I just couldn’t get into the story or the characters. I am sorry to say that I won’t be looking for further books by this author. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • Good Book Grin

    Some books earn a “Good Book Sigh” when finished. I closed this with a good book grin. The humor is quirky and the zingers are sometimes sneaky. The romance is sweet and satisfying. Reading this makes me wish I had paid more attention to English Lit in high school, because I’m sure I missed several of the literary references and jokes. I’m immediately ready to dive into Dangerous Damsels #2.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Delightful

    Thus was a delightful romp through a very diffrent Victorian landscape filled with scandalous scoundrels, flying houses, and her Majesty herself! Such a fun read with wondeful scenes and characters. Tally ho!

  • Wonderfully weird and adventurous

    This book tells a riveting story in a fantastic way. It had me laughing out loud several times because of the dry humour. It is very dry and self depricating and makes fun of some of societies nonsensical customs by adapting them into something even more bonkers. I absolutely loved every bit of it and have pre ordered the sequel! I am now handing the book to all my friends so we can form a wisteria society book club for lady booklovers.

    Thanks for your feedback!
