A Dangerous Collaboration | Deanna Raybourn

Veronica Speedwell returns in another adventure filled with secrets and betrayal from Deanna Raybourn, the New York Times bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey Mysteries. Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell is whisked off to a remote island off the tip of Cornwall when her natural historian colleague Stoker's brother calls in a favor. On the pretext of wanting a companion to accompany him to Lord Malcolm Romilly's house party, Tiberius persuades Veronica to pose as his fiance--much to Stoker's chagrin. But upon arriving, it becomes clear that the party is not as innocent as it had seemed. Every invited guest has a connection to Romilly's wife, Rosamund, who disappeared on her wedding day three years ago, and a dramatic dinner proves she is very much on her husband's mind. As spectral figures, ghostly music, and mysterious threats begin to plague the partygoers, Veronica enlists Stoker's help to discover the host's true motivations. And as they investigate, it becomes clear that there are numerous mysteries surrounding the Romilly estate, and every person present has a motive to kill Rosamund...

Number 4 is the best yet! Clearly this series is my summer reading addiction 😁. Fun plots, feisty characters, great banter...it's just what my summer reading list - and my tired brain - needed!

I'm enjoying this series a lot. This is the 4th installment and I'm proud to announce that although I'm usually an irregular series reader I've stuck to these books and been reading them consecutively without an interruption. I just can't seem to get enough of Veronica and Stoker!❤️❤️ Definitely a pick.

Mitch Totally agree. It‘s one of the only series that I‘m totally up to date with ! 9mo
DarkMina Their banter is hilarious. Love this series! 9mo

This is such a fun series. Veronica and her grumpy companion Stoker are a very will they or won‘t they couple up to this point. The mystery in this one wasn‘t as interesting to me, or maybe I just missed some of it as I was listening, but by the end I was excited to see what happens in the next book. Luckily it was on the shelf at my library when I picked up other holds! I‘m hoping to make time for it this weekend.

I absolutely adore this series. It has so many elements I adore. A super sassy and capable heroine who lives life fully, amazing dialogue full of cute quips and witty repartee, historical setting, fun mysteries and great pacing. This one might be my favourite so far actually!

I‘m not sleeping too well at the moment - so hoping a few chapters with Miss Speedwell, chasing butterflies and Victorian murderers on a remote Cornish Isle will be a diversion!

MicheleinPhilly I‘m sorry. Insomnia is TERRIBLE. Here‘s hoping you find rest. 1y
DGRachel Oh no! I hope you are able to relax and sleep soon. 1y
Mitch @MicheleinPhilly @DGRachel Just finding it so hard at the moment to switch my brain off. I love my sleep and I‘m a person that needs a good solid 8 hours to function - so it‘s not good. 🤞🏼 1y

The mystery was pretty good if a little slow in parts. I only guessed half the mystery so part of it was a surprise. I spent most of the book though cussing out the MCs to just admit they love each other already! The ending was pretty satisfying though. #historicalmystery #historicalfiction

Re-reading this series has been a delight. In this particular book you get to see more of Tiberius's complicated character fleshed out and the mystery is especially good.

I always seem to stay at least one behind in this series. I love it so much that I can‘t bear to be caught up and not have Veronica and Stoker to visit. 😊
This one was a bit different. Stoker‘s brother, Tiberius is summoned to a friend‘s island home and takes them along. Malcolm Romilly‘s wife disappeared on their wedding day three years before. He wants to solve the mystery so he can move forward with his life. There‘s not a lot of action 🔻

robinb in this one, and Tiberius figures heavily, but there is more constructive angst in Veronica‘s and Stoker‘s complex relationship, and I found this one enlightening as far as characters were concerned. The mystery itself does not figure prominently, but I found (in Raybourn‘s deft hands) I really didn‘t feel cheated at all in that way. Wonderful addition to this series! 5/5⭐️ 2y
TheAromaofBooks This series has been on my radar forever!!! I'll get to it someday! 😂 2y

I love this series - the will-they-won‘t-they relationship between Stoker and Veronica, the cheeky banter, the mysteries... I‘m trash for all of it. But this was easily my least favourite so far and everything I love about the series was missing or lacklustre. The last quarter, however, saw the two back on sparkling form! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me.

Veronica and Stoker travel to a small British island to investigate the 3 year old mystery of a woman who disappeared on her wedding night. It was a solid mystery - I guessed some, but not all of the plot twists. There was *finally* some progress towards a romantic relationship between Stoker and Veronica, which made me very happy. I really, really love this series!

I absolutely loved this book! This is my favorite in the series so far! I loved the remote setting & the added fun of Cornish folklore! The sexual tension between Stoker & Veronica is maddening & I love it!! The mystery was wonderfully exciting & kept me guessing. I also loved how it lead right into what is to be the next book in the series (TBR 3/2020). I just can‘t wait! Definitely 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My favorite of the series so far! As a fantasy buff, I‘m a sucker for local folklore/old tales weaving into a story, which made the Cornish setting of this installment intriguing. The plot was the best yet; it had me guessing almost till the end. Veronica & Stoker were as swoony & adorable as ever (Stoker, especially, was irresistibly cute in this one ♥️), but I did find Tiberius a tad problematic. An enchanting, exciting read! ★★★★☆.

So I still haven‘t felt 100% after my surgery last Friday. Only worked a 1/2 day yesterday and saw a doctor after work. She took some labwork (normal) and told me to stay home today and rest. So if I have to stay home I might as well snuggle with my baby Penny and read a good book right?!

The mystery plot in this one was especially good, as was the tension between Stoker and Veronica. I liked seeing more of Tiberius's character fleshed out. Veronica is my favorite Victorian female character because she is more independent and modern than many women in 2019 are able to be. I hope I don't have to wait too long for another book.

Eggbeater Would they just do it already! It's book 4 for @#%'s sake! 3y

The relationship between Veronica and Stoker really annoyed me in this one, but I think it was resolved. The mystery was interesting, but everyone, main characters included, was being very tiresome. Still enjoyed it, and it fit one of my prompts pretty well.
