“This series gets better with every book…”
~ Under the Covers
Who knew the life of a cook for a wealthy household could be so exciting? And involve so much sleuthing and murder? Kat Holloway once again dives into an investigation when her neighbour is found murdered. Their immediate suspect is Chinese scholar Le Bai Chang a man Kat counts as a friend after a chance encounter. Determined to prove his innocence Kat once again puts her considerable intelligence towards solving the case.
Kat is a fantastic heroine, her strength, intelligence and kindness makes her a compelling and extremely likeable character. However, Ashley hasn’t just created a great heroine, the characters around Kat, like her mouthy assistant Tess, the eccentric Lady Cynthia and the mysterious Daniel are all well rounded and interesting. This makes the story really engaging as you invest not just in finding the murderer but the more domestic stories in the background.
This series gets better with every book, not only was the mystery intriguing but watching Kat’s every day life and trials unfold was also fascinating and kept me turning the pages. Then there is the extremely slow burn romance between Kat and the mysterious but dashing Daniel. It all leaves me eager for the next book in this series.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
