An Unexpected Peril (A Veronica Speedwell Mystery)

We rated this book:


Veronica Speedwell and Stoker have once again found themselves embroiled in intrigue and An Unexpected Peril. In their newest adventure, they are tasked with designing an exhibit to the late Alice Baker-Greene, who recently perished while mountain climbing. During the course of their work, they discover that she was actually murdered and set about finding the culprit. Their case ends up involving Veronica posing as a princess who has gone missing in order to broker peace, with death threats, kidnappings, and a near chance of meeting her father. Will Veronica’s and Stoker’s luck hold out or is cheating death six times too many for Fate to allow?

|I cannot get enough of Veronica and Stoker’s adventures. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves mysteries, sassy female leads, and anything related to Victorian England. You cannot help but love both Veronica and Stoker and the ridiculous situations they find themselves in. The author writes with such confidence that it isn’t until you read her notes at the end, that the places and people she writes about are figments of her imagination. As you read, you enter a whole new world full of interesting people that takes place in my favorite time period. I cannot wait for the next installment to see what kind of trouble they will get themselves into next!
