I liked the first book in this series. This new one is even better I like the two scientists getting together I didn't think Edison was that noticeable but in this book he was awesome and Ada who is perfect for him this author keeps getting better and better I can't wait for her next one in this series hope it's Briar but I'll settle for any of them this was steamy but not overdone it was a nice touch a Romance and mystery you'll be surprised who the villain was!

I enjoyed Edison and Ada’s story. Two brilliant scientists struggle to come to terms with their feelings for each other. I was intrigued by the attitude of other male scientists of the period to a woman who succeeded where they couldn’t. Once again, the Restitution League comes to the rescue. This is a great addition to the series.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

3.5 stars! This is well written, and it's the perfect combination between adventure and romance. The victorian elements are present but do not suffocate the story and all the minor characters are incredibly well developed.
Both the heroine and the hero are flawed, imperfect characters that struggle to find their footing as they fall for each other and they ran away from danger. I love that, while slightly fast, they both have traits that

In the second installment of The Restitution League, Riley Cole has done fantastic job of composing the love story between Ada and Edison. I found myself laughing or smiling at the interplay between them. An electrical tale with suspense, intrigue, humor, action, and a strong female lead. HEA, stand alone story with no cheating. With her writing, Riley Cole brings her characters and the ambiance of the time and place to life making them lovable, believable and three dimensional.

This was a captivating read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a good mix of scientific discoveries, mystery, adventure and romance. I must admit it had me guessing who the villain was until the end. The main characters are Edison Sweet and Ada Templeton but the rest of Edwin’s family and staff also play a part. It was good to catch up with them all. Edwin and Ada have an instant attraction but can they act upon it, given their backgrounds? I love the fact that all the women are strong, intelli ...more

This is a good adventure story. I liked Edison and Ada, and I liked following the other characters. I enjoyed this story more than the first book because there was less overt violence. It was more about figuring out the next move and such.

Edison Sweet is a dissembler, belongs to the restitution league and a scientist. He has a lot of skills that he uses to those who need it. In the League there, is Meena, Nelly, Crane, Spencer, Mr. Hapgood, Mrs. Hapgood, Briar and later in the story Henry joins them. Ada Templeton was married to Harrison, but he died. She is a chemical scientist and loves what she does.
I really enjoyed the banter between the characters, It could be very humorous. There is also intrigue, betrayal, and danger. So m

Four and a half stars. This is an interesting story about a brilliant woman in a time when women didn’t “understand” science. I liked Ada but I fell in love with Edison right from the start. Poor Ada just wants to share her invention, but someone is trying to kill her. The story kept me trying to figure out who the bad guy would turn out to be. This is my first from this author and I am looking forward to more from her. Good job!
