While investigating a man claiming to be the long-lost heir to a noble family, Veronica Speedwell gets the surprise of her life in this new adventure from the New York Times bestselling and Edgar Awardnominated author Deanna Raybourn. London, 1889. Veronica Speedwell and her natural historian beau Stoker are summoned by Sir Hugo Montgomerie, head of Special Branch. He has a personal request on behalf of his goddaughter, Euphemia Hathaway. After years of traveling the world, her eldest brother, Jonathan, heir to Hathaway Hall, was believed to have been killed in the catastrophic eruption of Krakatoa a few years before. But now a man matching Jonathans description and carrying his possessions has arrived at Hathaway Hall with no memory of his identity or where he has been. Could this man truly be Jonathan, back from the dead? Or is he a devious impostor, determined to gain ownership over the family's most valuable possessionsa legendary parure of priceless Rajasthani jewels? It's a delicate situation, and Veronica is Sir Hugo's only hope. Veronica and Stoker agree to go to Hathaway Hall to covertly investigate the mysterious amnesiac. Veronica is soon shocked to find herself face-to-face with a ghost from her past. To help Sir Hugo discover the truth, she must open doors to her own history that she long believed to be shut for good.

It‘s Veronica Speedwell so of course it‘s a pick…BUT…I must confess that this time around Raybourn used some devices I don‘t love which lessened my enjoyment of the story. That being said, it didn‘t lessen my enthusiasm for this series and these characters or my excitement to see what happens next. Veronica and Stoker remain two of my favorite people to spend an afternoon with and I look forward to doing so with the next book.

I don‘t even know how I missed this in February but I did. I make up for that oversight today—hot cup of tea, grey skies, sleet/freezing rain…Everything I need for an afternoon of murder and mayhem and Veronica Speedwell.

FlowerFairy Love this series! Have you read her Lady Jane Grey series as well? 1mo
TracyReadsBooks @FlowerFairy Such a great series! And yes, I‘ve read some but not all of the Lady Jane Grey series. I should get caught up on it too! 1mo

Wow! Just when you think you know a character! I love Veronica Speedwell, and this addition to the series is excellent, with plot twists, twists within twists, and an interesting revelation. The only problem is waiting for the next book!

I love delving into the world of the unorthodox Victorian, crime-solving Veronica Speedwell. She is so clever and adventurous and independent. This book revisits her past for some good twists and eyebrow raising surprises.

I took my time reading this one and just savoring it. Though I think a series reread is in my future. This is my favorite series and hope the author keeps writing Veronica and Stoker adventures!

#20in4 this weekend, I won‘t say I‘m currently in a reading slump, just say I‘m reading slower than usual. I‘m in a mood for what I want to read.

I‘m currently reading the tagged book, but haven‘t even started either of my #LMPBC books 🤦‍♀️

So those are my goals for this weekend readathon.

Andrew65 Great to have you with us, good luck. 😊👍 3mo

This series never disappoints! This installment involves an impostor (maybe) and a jewel theft but no murder, which was kind of refreshing.

Redy2trvl I love this series so much! 3mo
EvieBee I really need to check this series out. I just know I‘ll love it. 3mo
Amie @Redy2trvl Me too! 3mo

I am not sure how I missed preordering this book, as this is a great series from one of my favorite authors. I have corrected my mistake, and am ready to jump into another adventure with Veronica Speedwell.

adoramichaels Have this on my wish list after attending the virtual launch event for this book! She was such a fun person to listen to and was so nice!! 3mo

I picked up my preorder today of the tagged book! And yes, I‘ve already started reading it! I think a reread is due this year! I‘ve never reread the books.

I also bought Crescent City book 2. I wasn‘t planning on it, but it was there and I needed it!

I also ordered my #LMPBC book for the next fantasy round. It just wasn‘t on their shelves!

“In AN IMPOSSIBLE IMPOSTOR, Veronica and her love interest, Stoker, are called upon to identify someone that Veronica knew long ago -- and who was previously presumed to be dead.”

Sounds like another good one.

Finished an ARC of the next book in the Veronica Speedwell series. I love this series so much. Veronica and Stoker get home after their last adventure to immediately be called on again to investigate if someone assumed dead and now returned is who he says he is. We learn something big about Veronica's past. Something I would never have guessed. Ends on a little bit of a cliffhanger. Out 2/15. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
