“…somewhere along the line it lost the intensity for me.”~ Under the Covers
This is my first time reading Diana Quincy and I picked this up (out of order) because I’ve seen great reviews for her previous book. And I have to say I’m both pleasantly surprised and just a tad disappointed. Did I think it was going to wow me? Yes. Did it? Not quite. That doesn’t mean, I didn’t enjoy the book. I did. But I definitely had higher expectations going in from what I have heard. Could just be me and my mood.
The one thing I absolutely loved is how this book gives us a character that I haven’t seen in historical romance before. As the blurb says, our heroine, Hanna, is of Arab descent and she is a bonesetter. Her profession is not seen with any regard by London society and certainly not by the male dominated medical field. Even the hero, who goes to her under the guise of needing treatment, believes her to be a fraud.
The hero, Griff, is a Viscount with a bad reputation. Rumors are that he killed his parents. But in reality he’s been looking for the real killer ever since. And the necklace around Hanna’s neck is a clue she, or someone she knows, was somehow involved.
THE VISCOUNT MADE ME DO IT started off incredibly strong for me. I was loving how fierce Hanna was. She was the star of this book. Her profession, her sacrifices to succeed in the world at the time, her determination. But somewhere along the line it lost the intensity for me. It still delivered a good story and I will read another book by this author.
