A Perilous Undertaking

A Perilous Undertaking - Deanna Raybourn

Hmmm. Can't do a synopsis since it's second in the series and spoilers and all. Soooo...

 

What I liked:

 

The Banter between Victoria and Stoker is on point. It was enjoyable to read. 

 

The writing was solid. 

 

The characters are engaging.

 

What I didn't like: 

 

Some of the plot devices seemed to be there for pure shock value.  This is not a book to read if you like your historical mysteries squeaky clean is all I'll say. It got to be a little much. I  get Victoria is supposed to be a forward thinking female... but I thought that was more about her profession, not sex. 

 

This book left me with a ho-hum feeling.
