The Gentleman's Gambit | Evie Dunmore

Pickpick

Finished the last one in the series. It‘s a low pick for me mainly because I‘ve liked the series. The format is the same as the other 3 books in the series. Again it‘s tied to a point in English history & the fight for women‘s rights. Nothing earth shattering but a good quick, easy read. April review #bookspin

Lost interest and got slightly confused while reading. It seemed to jump around and the plot kind of became an afterthought for me

MMC: Elias - loved.
FMC: Catriona- wanted to smack upside the head.
Loved revisiting the characters from previous books. Especially the first book Bringing Down the Duke, which is still my 5 star favorite. We are told Catriona‘s smart. I guess. The pacing was very slow. Honestly I feel like this story was trying to tackle too many issues at once, and the story didn‘t flow well. I wanted more details on the HEA. Not a vague ending for the couple.

julesG Wasn't a fan of Catriona either. 🙄 4mo

“The word you said earlier, what did it mean?” she asked.
The way he went quiet said he knew at once what she meant.
“Ta‘abrinee,” he said.
“Yes.”
“It means, bury me.”
“Isn‘t that a bit morbid?”
He stroked the back of her hand with his thumb. “We say it to someone we don‘t want to live without. Hence, we must go first.”
Sorta sappy, but if the love isn‘t like this, I don‘t want it!

All the romance books I‘ve read so far in February! Been reading a lot but haven‘t had much time for social media and posting!

Hope everyone else‘s reading is going well this month!

KadaGul @Laughterhp What did you think 🤔 of Exes & O? I heard good things about it and picked up from a local Library Reading Challenge. 4mo
Laughterhp @KadaGul It was okay. Not my favorite romance. I didn‘t really like some stuff the MC did. But it wasn‘t awful. Hopefully you‘ll like it more than me! 4mo

I love her books, this book just got to me. I wish I could have this kind of happy ending. My most recent love story is so similar but instead just ended.

Wasn‘t my favorite of this series, but I still enjoyed the romance. Following Catriona, it concludes with the passage of the Married Women‘s Protection Act, which has been the goal of the 4 suffragette friends. It also deals with some tougher subjects: colonialism & neurodivergence. It did get bogged down with overexplaining the stolen antiquities market & colonialism in the Middle East. Enjoyed the POV chapters featuring the other suffragettes.

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫There was a lot Dunmore was trying to accomplish in this book, & I think that got in the way of her usual easy storytelling. There were many flashbacks for both characters & so much historical information that the main story was sometimes hard to find. I enjoyed all I learned about East/West relations in the late 1800s, unfortunately it just felt a bit heavy handed. I loved books 1 & 3 in this series, tho, and will always recommend those.

julesG The historical information was bogging it down, wasn't it? 6mo
behudd @julesG it was, which is such a bummer because I feel like her other 3 didn‘t have that issue. I‘m wondering if it was the pressure of this being the last book, she felt she had to fit in as much as she could? 6mo
julesG That's what I thought too. She wanted to cram in everything, including mental health problems, demanding families, the fear of foreigners, foreign affairs, etc etc. Instead of cramming this book to the brim she should have thought about a fifth book about Peregrin finding a suffragist of his own. 6mo
behudd @julesG oohh yes! I want to read that! 6mo

Enjoyed this fourth and last book in Dunmore's series.

The story is bogged down with a lot of historical information on the Women's Property Act and 'how to properly obtain antiquities'. It wraps up the series nicely with Catriona's story.

Catriona is forced to work together with foreign scholar Elias. Elias has come to study some statues in a private collection of the Ashmolean, but doesn't only have scholarly pursuits on his mind.

In a world run by loud people, quiet was a scarce commodity.
