Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore, published 2019

 

            This was a great book; I thoroughly enjoyed every part of it. I would reread it in a heartbeat and the next books in the series are on my to-do list. I’ve always had a soft spot for historical-fiction romances, especially ones set in old England, and this one topped all. The attention to detail was amazing, and while I’m not sure how historically accurate it is, it certainly seemed like it was written straight from the 1880’s. 

I loved how we got to dig further into the characters’ personalities as the book progressed. The characters were so deep and I loved how everything played out. Certain twists and turns in the plot were unexpected and it was fun to be surprised. I admit, I wish that the main character was a bit more vengeful and had gone back to wrong those who’d wronged her because that would’ve been satisfying, but alas, a life well lived will always be the best kind of revenge I suppose. 

I also loved the cover, which is the perfect balance between old England and a more modern style. I want to go back and read this book with an English accent though. Wouldn’t that be fun? I was fully invested in this book from start to finish, and I can’t wait to read the next one.
