I'M GOING TO START BURNING STUFF SOON TO RELEASE THE SEXUAL TENSION!
SIDE NOTE: I feel Veronica become proud of me everytime I convince someone to read the book and OMG I've gotten so many people into it! Ga!
*Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.
It feels like I've been waiting forever for this book, especially since it's been over a year since I read the previous book, but now the publication date is close to being in sight!
Finally! A title and synopsis to my favorite and truthfully only non-YA mystery/historical fiction series I follow. Can't wait to be reunited with my precious crime-solving duo =D
Anyhow, this is a favorite series of mine, I was quite looking forward to reading it and I loved to once again step into Veronica and ...more
For various reasons, the last two books in this much beloved series have just not done it for me. Book four because of what I felt were out-of-character behaviours for characters I had grown to love so much, and in book five, it's the mystery.
As for the will-they-won't-they-have-they-finally-just-got-on-with-it question, whether things ...more
I loved this book! I think that this series just keeps getting better and better. The characters are so well done and I love the chemistry between Veronica and Stoker. I thought the mystery in this book was quite good and I liked that the story touched on the crimes of Jack the Ripper.

I will write a proper review closer to the March 10, 2020 publication date. Thank you Berkley and Edelweiss for this advance copy. And thank you Deanna Raybourn for writing my first favorite book of 2020.
Deanna Raybourn’s A MURDEROUS RELATION is filled with ...more
First off, I want to start with how much I sincerely love Veronica and Stoker; their slow-burn romance has had me on edge for 4 books! To say that this is a couple who ...more
My husband said to me, "You know Kari- you may want to savor it since you'll have to wait a long time until the next book is published. And, well . . . I love you, but patience really isn't your strong suit." Well- listening to him wasn't my strong suit ...more
As far as the actual murder plot goes, I don’t think this one could live up to #4 for me (my favorite), but the overarching story being told had my heart. This one meandered a little more and I ultimately felt like it had a harder time coming together, but come together it still ...more
Loved it so much! But I have a sneaking suspicion this might be the last book in the series because of those last paragraphs in the book (knock on wood I'm wrong).
Veronica and Stoker. What more can I say that hasn't been said about these two?
Their relationship has been developing for four books, now five. After the ending of book four, we know what they're ready for. We already know they loved each other, but they're also the most stubborn people we've met.
But the time isn't right to ...more
That being said, A MURDEROUS RELATION isn't my favorite installment in the series (I could have done very well without all the brothel scenes, thank you very much), but it's still a compelling novel that is exciting, funny, and enjoyable. If you've liked the series so far, you will like this one as well - just be warned ...more
I tend to not like the story line revolving around the royal family. Its more than I can suspend disbelief of. However, I didn't hate this as much as with the second book.
I actually came to like Eddy.
I am very happy about the progress with their relationship although it still a long time to get to. Honestly after the harrowing events of the fourth book I really wanted to see more of the relationship blossom and possibly more ...more
That being said the plot wasn't my fave. This book felt a bit repetitive at times and dragged out.
I still really enjoyed it and am hoping that the rest of the series is just as delightful and enjoyable.
*Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for an eARC in exchange for an honest review*
I absolutely loved this book. It's one of my 2020 most anticipated. The relationship balance between Stoker and Veronica is good as ever. This is my second fav of the veronica speedwell series, I think I expected a little bit more from the Jack the Ripper side and that's the only reason it's not a 5.
