    Storywise do I think this is the strongest and most interesting one so far in this series. Not that the previous two books have been bad, more that I found this book mystery to be much more fascinating to read about, with a less obvious ending than the previous book. This is not a seri...

    Veronica Speedwell ranks at the top of my favorite female protagonist list with Maggie Hope and Ruby Proulx. Veronica is witty, brilliant, likeable and outspoken, and Stoker is the perfect sidekick for her. A Treacherous Curse focuses more on Stoker and his dark and mysterious past, an...

    Because there is no power on earth that could make me abandon our friendship. There is no deed you could confess so dark that it would make me forsake you. This book is well-paced, well-written and highly engaging. It keeps you guessing from start to finish, trying to put together...

    Another delightful adventure with Veronica Speedwell and the delicious Revelstoke Templeton- Vane aka "Stoker" in which our intrepid duo encounters an Egyptian curse and Stoker's personal demons are finally laid to rest. I love the character development in this one and the slow burn i...

    Veronica and Stoker are some of my favorite characters. She's a spunky woman in the late 1800's who doesn't care what people think about her. She will go out in public in pants, will tell people what she thinks and will have sex outside of a marriage. this is another great murder myste...

    I?ve had my eye on this book since before it even had a title! I finished the second book and immediately started counting the days until this one was going to be released. Fortunately I had the good luck to be approved for an ARC in Oct, because I literally don?t think I could ...

    If you could bottle fun, it would end up being a Veronica Speedwell novel. I know this makes no sense but that's kind of the point, because it's similar to the books. Yes, there are many coincidences here that lead to the conclusion of the case, but quite frankly, I don't care because ...

    Veronica Speedwell is one of my favorite characters. She is brazen, witty and a free thinker. The banter, and teasing she torturesStoker with making them the ideal pair. While romanticnotions are hinted at between them, the case takes front and center. Each book contains a new myst...

    4.5 stars. Funny, moving, exciting, and deftly plotted -- until one twist toward the end struck me as too unlikely to be believed. If you enjoyed Julia and Brisbane in Deanna Raybourn's excellent Lady Julia series, you will probably like Veronica and Stoker, although they are a tota...

    3.5 stars My favorite book in the series so far. Someone from Stoker's past disappeared. There were implications that he may have been involved. To keep his name from being tarnished again, he and Veronica set out to discover what really happened. The case was strongly tied to S...

    Fun, quirky and just shy of ?evah-so-propah,? A TREACHEROUS CURSE by Deanna Raybourn is Victorian mystery and adventure at its most entertaining. An ancient mummy?s curse seems to be claiming the members of an Egyptian expedition and the plucky Veronica Speedwell is on the case. ...

    I LOVE THIS SERIES. Somewhere along the way this has become one of my favorite series. I love Veronica and Stoker so goddamn much. If they don't kiss in the next book I'm going to fUCKING DIE. I'd describe this series as Bones meets Sherlock Holmes. If you're looking for something with...

    Snuck this in pretty close to the wire to wrap up 2017. And what a way to go! "I won't kill a man on his knees." "There, you see? Stoker has standards." Right now my brain is just kind of an endless happy-pained shriek (ala the snapchat voice filter) because of that ending. I wa...

    This is a fantastic Victorian England mystery steeped with murder, intrigue and tension. I have not read the first two books in this series. I didn't know it was a part of a series when I requested it from NetGalley- I just loved the description! It was so well written and had me guess...
