#LittensLoveRomance Feb20:Ch.16&17: lying in the rain sounds nice - if you live in warm California. I kept thinking - you‘re going to freeze! go inside! But I guess that‘s Canadian rain I‘m thinking of haha. This was a sweet and sexy scene and I like Huxley more and more. I love that he‘s opening up more and showing his true personality. That‘s how he‘ll win Lottie - not going all cold on her.

Read4life I agree that Huxley needs to keep opening up and sharing. It was a great scene. 1d
CogsOfEncouragement Angela is THE WORST. I was glad Lottie didn‘t get worried that Angela did somehow see Hux out with someone else. 22h

julieclair It really was a sweet scene, and it‘s nice to see Huxley relaxing a bit and showing more of his real self. 21h
LiseWorks Oh, I was thinking the same. It's cold, you're wet. Did they hear thunder? Go inside lol 16h
Julsmarshall I loved these chapters too. Especially how they are starting to share vulnerable parts of themselves. Swoon! now

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb20: Ch.17-18: Wow Charles is such a jerk! A spoiled brat who needs to have a reality check. Now, granted, I know his childhood was hard because of their father, but spending even more on food, and treating Tom and Susie like he did - not cool. I‘m so angry on Tom‘s behalf. We‘ll see how things go but I‘d be kicking Charles to the curb.

Librarybelle Ugh…Charles! 1d
BarkingMadRead So frustrated! To be putting Tom deeper in the whole is so wrong! Poor Susie, stuck in the middle! 1d

DebinHawaii Charles is an asshat! 🍑🎩 1d
LiseWorks I think he is jealous cause didn't Tom get the title and inheritance even when he was kicked out? 1d
Cheshirecat913 Charles is so infuriating. Why Charles? Why not help each other. Don't go cozing up to Dain! I hope that isn't Dain's house he was going to. 24h
CogsOfEncouragement It seems the brothers need to have a gab sesh. There is a lot they need to share with each other. 22h
julieclair It‘s hard to imagine how Charles can be so selfish. 21h
CrowCAH Charles is very childish. He never grew up. I think he went to a woman‘s house. Why else get up early and look presentable than for a lady lover? And he could be lavishing her with ham gifts. 12h

#LittensLoveRomance Feb19: Ch.14&15: there‘s a part of me (the romantic that has these types of fantasies) that completely gets why these two young, single, attractive people are getting it on behind closed doors. The other part of me is like: things are so complicated- why would you add sex and/or foreplay into the mix! I guess they just can‘t help themselves 😜.⬇️

StayCurious What do you think? Should they try to keep things professional or will sleeping together just open themselves to each other which may be a good thing? 2d
KristiAhlers I loved this book. I am a totaly fan of this author. She's an autobuy writer for me. 2d

OriginalCyn620 At this point, they may as well just bang it out. After what they‘ve done so far, it‘d be stupid not to! 🤣 But yes, they really should because we know they won‘t be able to help themselves…the writing‘s on the wall. Still here for it, though! 2d
julieclair I think sleeping together will make life easier for both of them. 2d

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb.19. Ch.15&16: I‘m glad Vicky and Tom are speaking and trying to solve the mystery of who is after Vicky and why. And now we get a bit about why Althea has been acting cold to Vicky - she thought she had abandoned her! I guess Dain knew how close they were and wanted to keep them apart. So, what‘s Carmichael up to? I think there is something to do with the two estates and the land, like Tom mentioned.

Librarybelle Carmichael is being very suspicious 2d
BarkingMadRead Carmichael has definitely been acting a bot off, and now it all makes sense. I‘m definitely #Teamtom on this theory! 2d

mcctrish Whatever Carmicheal helped Vicky‘s dad with land wise is going to = mucho dollaros so he and Dain want Oakridge ( or whatever it is called) through Althea or Vicky and they want to buy as much land of Tom‘s as they can. Not sure they care about buildings at all, might just level it all and leave the girls with nothing and control it all 2d
CogsOfEncouragement Always glad to see at least some clear communication between fictional characters. 2d
julieclair I think Tom has it all figured out. Now he just has to prove it. Hopefully Vicky will help him. 2d
CrowCAH Something is afoot. But what? I‘m with the group about the land holding the key to the mystery. 2d
DebinHawaii Yep, gotta be the land & either the water rights or there is something else there that‘s valuable. 2d

#LittensloveRomance Feb 18: Ch.12-13: Omg - that Lamaze class was so funny and uncomfortable - and Lottie and Hux teasing each other in the car was laugh out loud funny. When these two finally smarten up and get together for real it‘s going to be fantastic! Asking those get to know you questions was a step in the right direction for sure.

Read4life I was laughing so hard during the class that my husband stopped what he was doing to ask me about it. 🤣🤣 3d
julieclair That class was truly LOL for real! So cringeworthy! 3d
See All 9 Comments
OriginalCyn620 Okay, for real I want to know if this pregnancy class was something the author dreamed up or if she did research and this is an actual thing. WTF! I laughed reading it because I was hoping it was made up! It was bizarre but funny. And I‘m sorry, but I‘ve had 2 kids and couldn‘t tell you one detail about either conception, so I guess this class would be a moot point for me. And what even was the point of that? I got lost in the ridiculousness. (edited) 3d
OriginalCyn620 But I did love the get-to- know you questions! I really hope this is the start of both Huxley (especially him) and Lottie being more open with each other. 3d
Pigpen_Reads I laughed way too much at that scene! I'm curious as well. Is this an actual thing? 😂 3d
LiseWorks That class can not be real! And now I am starting to really like Huxley. The question sessions are a good get to know you time. 3d
Graciouswarriorprincess That class was hilarious! I can‘t even imagine ! Huxley is starting to open up which I love seeing this side of him. 3d
CogsOfEncouragement Take THAT Angela! The way she described herself as a gorgeous goddess at the gala and Hux not remembering her one iota. The best. 2d

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb 18: Ch.13-14: can I just say, Vicki is awesome and so capable! I‘d want her on my side in a fight - and what a terrifying experience. But were they after Althea or Vicky? My guess is it has something to do with Vicky‘s attack from before. Now, one other thing: what are Carmichael and Dain up to? They are obviously in cahoots with Carmichael the brains of the operation. Tom needs to tell Vicky what he heard ASAP.

BarkingMadRead I am stressed 🤣 3d
LiseWorks Oh I so agree! Tom needs to let the sisters know something is up. 3d

mcctrish Holy Smokes!!! Daddy can‘t die yet! Vicky is fierce AF! @BarkingMadRead Tom needs to get over to their house posthaste and they all need a murder board to map out their intel ( best way to cement the budding romance between Tom and Vicky is bonding over the ‘murder board‘ where they solve all the mysterious events but hopefully no murders occur) 3d
julieclair It would seem to me that Dain has a good reason for wanting Daddy to die. 3d
CogsOfEncouragement I didn‘t expect Carmichael and Dain to be in cahoots, and I doubly didn‘t expect their carriage to be attacked. What next!?! Vicky is a survivor. I like her more than I did in the first few chapters. 3d
CrowCAH Carmichael and Dain are up to something. Seems like Carmichael has set his cap on Vikky. Poor father beat senseless. Good thing Vikky was there to take control of the situation. Hard to tell which sister was really supposed to be kidnapped. Althea for Dain. Or Vikky for Carmichael. I keep expecting Tom to come to the rescue again! 2d
mcctrish @julieclair Dain and Carmichael both me thinks 2d

#LittensLoveRomance Feb.17: Ch.10-11: well…that discussion certainly escalated. I think these two are incredibly attracted to each other but I think Huxley is starting to feel more emotionally than he bargained for. He definitely could have handled the boardroom fiasco a bit better. But then again…she hasn‘t been at her best either. Learn from this! Be better!

OriginalCyn620 Indeed that conversation escalated quickly! 🤣 But I really don‘t blame Lottie for the boardroom thing…she was totally caught off guard! If anything, her sister and Huxley are more to blame since neither one told her about the meeting. And during the quickly escalating conversation Huxley could‘ve told her WHY the phone call was so important. I think Lottie would‘ve understood. Huxley needs to be more forthcoming with her! 4d
Graciouswarriorprincess @OriginalCyn620 I totally agree. Huxley needs to open up more. Poor Lottie! 4d
See All 7 Comments
LiseWorks I actually agreed with the advice Kelsey gave Lottie before the meeting. Yes, Kelsey should have told her who the meeting was with. Yes, she should have informed herself about the business before the meeting. But I really think what she did was so unprofessional. After all, it was her sister who was having the meeting. She should have kept to herself even if she did see Huxley. 4d
Julsmarshall I feel like nearly everyone could have done better in these chapters. But Hux better get his act together or I‘m going to have a hard time getting over his extreme butthead behavior. 4d
julieclair Hux, Kelsey and Lottie were all partially at fault for the boardroom fiasco. But they put all the blame on Lottie. Not really fair. 4d
Pigpen_Reads The second-hand embarrassment I felt during the boardroom scene 🤦🏽‍♀️ They should have told Lottie. 4d

#LittensLoveRomance Feb16: Ch.8-9: I get the whole enemies to lovers thing is being played out here, but man, Huxley is a jerk! I‘m really looking forward to his glow up. Poor Lottie - although she gives as good as she gets, that‘s for sure. Interested to see where things go and want to see them treat each other nicer.

OriginalCyn620 Enemies-to-lovers is my favorite romance trope so I am here for this! I do love their back and forth banter. They are both head-strong people, but in different ways. I can already see how they‘d complement each other. To me, this is just pure fun! 😄 I absolutely cannot wait until the inevitable happens! 5d
julieclair I love Lottie‘s feistiness! But I agree, I wish they would treat each other with more respect. 5d
Graciouswarriorprincess I‘m looking forward to them getting together but love how feisty Lottie is. She is full of fire!🔥 5d
LiseWorks I can see here why Huxley is successful in business. He is very precise and business oriented. I think Lottie will make him more human and family oriented. 5d

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb.16: Ch.9-10: Doesn‘t Tom realize that the way out of his financial troubles is to marry an heiress? That‘s what poor gentleman did quite often. I think he‘d be more likely to find a rich girl in search of a title than he is to find backers for this hotel scheme. And Charles is sooo irritating. I‘d wallop him for spending that money. If Tom has to sell his horse I‘m going to be sad.⬇️

StayCurious Also, Carmichael is horrible - Vicky better watch out. But she isn‘t having much luck with her other suitors - yikes! Especially the spitter😅 5d

LiseWorks Tom seemed should work, but finding backers will be very hard. Charles, OMG What a dick. I was ewe over the spitting guy. 5d
julieclair Those “dates” were so awful… but very funny! Charles is the worst. No, Carmichael is the worst. Tom + Vicky can‘t happen fast enough! 5d
CogsOfEncouragement I hope that somehow Vicky‘s family buys Horatio. I was a little surprised Tom told Vicky about Carmichael. Not because Tom shouldn‘t- I just anticipated the author having Vicky blind to his violence for longer. lol Glad we don‘t have to endure that. 5d
willaful Sorry, I'm dropping out. I'm really stressed and the book just isn't holding my interest. Enjoy the rest of the read! 5d
CrowCAH Yes, as a horse lover my heart ached at him having to sell his horse. I really hope it doesn‘t come to that! I enjoyed the “dating” scenes and how she tried to politely show them out at the end of each. 5d
DebinHawaii Sheldon the butler escorting the bad dates out makes me laugh! 🤣🤣🤣 I am hoping Carmichael doesn‘t end up buying Horatio! 🫣 5d

#LittensLoveRomance Feb 15: Ch.6-7: Yeesh - what happened to Prince Charming? Where‘d he go? Poor Lottie! I mean, true she‘s a handful, but at least try to be nice to the woman who is saving your ass. Their fighting is funny though. I always worry during big lies like this. When is the truth going to come out? Because it always does…

LiseWorks Love those cats. Oh, I think the fighting and him being mean is because he is so focused on getting that deal that he sees all the potential of it going wrong. He is nervous and takes it out on her. 6d
OriginalCyn620 First, the meme is hilarious! 🤣🤣🤣 (edited) 6d
See All 9 Comments
OriginalCyn620 Second, I‘m totally #TeamLottie here. Just because they agreed to a “business transaction” doesn‘t mean Huxley can bark out orders as he sees fit. Lottie is still a human being, and as she is helping to save his reputation and possibly secure a very lucrative business deal, he could most definitely be decent to her. But I know they have to have this push and pull for the sake of the plot, and admittedly, I am here for it! 6d
Graciouswarriorprincess Those cats are hilarious! And I agree, be a decent human being! I am loving the snarkyness though…it‘s so funny! 6d
peanutnine Yeah not on board with this side of Huxley. From his POV chapter it seems like he's afraid to show how much he actually appreciates Lottie but he needs to get over himself 6d
julieclair I‘m glad Lottie is giving him grief for the way he is being so rude to her. She may be under contract, but she‘s still willing to stand up for herself. She knows her own worth. 6d
TheAromaofBooks I feel like Huxley made a big character switch in this chapter. What does he gain by being rude instead of pleasant? I'm totally here for Lottie's relationship with her sister though 😂 6d
Julsmarshall Loving Lottie, Hux definitely too much of a jerk for me right now. I‘m hoping we see a softer side soon! I so enjoyed the banter of the first few chapters. 6d

#InDeathLongReadalong #IDLR Feb 15 Check-in: I won‘t put up a chapter summary but will point those who are interested to the In Death Wiki Fandom page (google that) - it has a ton of great info and a chapter play by play for each book. I thought in this check in we can discuss what we‘re liking, disliking, and who we think is a prime suspect. If you‘ve finished the book please no spoilers!

StayCurious Just like in book one, Eve is thrust into strange (to her) family dynamics. Family is always complicated but in this case I think Cicely was the matriarch and pillar of strength that held the rest together 6d
StayCurious I thought her struggle with Roarke and her fear of commitment was so heart wrenching to read. I felt for both of them! But also - girl - take the diamond!! 6d
See All 21 Comments
Librarybelle Thanks for these posts! I‘m behind on reading, but will be done by the end of February! 6d
willaful I guess I'm back in the swim of things because I'm enjoying this more than the first one. Eve finally breaking is painful, but also so important. 6d
ShananigansReads @StayCurious 🤣🤣🤣 at “take the diamond!!” (edited) 6d
ShananigansReads I like the dynamic between Eve and Roark much more this time. It felt forced in book 1. I‘m thrown for a loop at who the killer is. But I‘m rarely successful at sussing them out. 6d
LiseWorks The fact that Eve wore the diamond next time she sees Roarke tells me that a. She took the diamond b. She was touched by the jester. 6d
MrsV I understand Roarke has his fingers in a lot of pies so to speak, but if he is going to have to be “eliminated” as a suspect every time that‘s going to annoying. 6d
CatLass007 @ShananigansReads I agree about the dynamic between Roarke and Eve. It is more believable in this book than in the first one. The dive in head first relationship in the first book was my least favorite part of the story. Eve‘s history of sexual abuse as a child, the abuse she says she doesn‘t remember because it‘s not important, makes me question how Roarke‘s forcefulness in pursuing a sexual relationship with Eve (cont)⬇️ 6d
CatLass007 didn‘t seem to be a problem for her. She became angry at his arrogance, but not at the near assault in the first book. In the current book there‘s more tenderness. 6d
CatLass007 I love that Galahad‘s supremacy over the humans is acknowledged.😹😻 6d
willaful @CatLass007 I think she never feels truly helpless with him. It would be very different if she did. His threat is to her armor, not her person. 6d
StayCurious @willaful well said. His threat is to her heart. 6d
CatLass007 @willaful I hadn‘t thought of that, but I believe you‘re right. Many of us have an additional sense (intuition?) that allows us to perceive another person‘s intentions. 6d
TheAromaofBooks I'm enjoying this one a lot more than the first book. I'm inclined to suspect Cecily's son, who seems sketch - maybe poor Yvonne is a red herring, murdered to draw suspicion away from Cecily's close family? 6d
willaful @CatLass007 She's also a very tough person. 😁 5d
CatLass007 @willaful Sometimes we only think people are tough. People who stuff their emotions, people who deny their feelings and deny that their trauma didn‘t happen, sometimes break instead of bend. I have a dear friend who has Masters degrees in Medical Surgical Nursing and in Counseling who could tell you some horror stories about people she helped. 5d
willaful @CatLass007 I meant that she's a trained cop, used to being threatened with harm. 5d
CatLass007 @willaful I will kinda agree with that, but not completely. 5d

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb 15: Ch7-8: Why would Mr.Carmichael take Vicky on an outing (read date) and then cut it off so abruptly? Poor planning or is he upset she‘s not more open with him? And is he annoyed she‘s seeing Silby? Btw - a gentleman should not talk smack about his rivals and he did so about Tom and Silby both. Also, who is Susie? Did I miss her mentioned before? And how poor is Tom‘s family - they can‘t properly heat the house🙁

mcctrish Who is Susie is right? What was Tom‘s dad doing in the house that Tom hates it ? Is Susie an illegitimate sister? Charles is a useless twat. Mr Carmichael is playing a long con imo!!! I gasped out loud at the man at the end of chapter the eighth #themaninblackisstalkingVicky this is awesome (edited) 6d
LiseWorks Victoria is on a real hunt for a husband as she is dating everybody. When I was reading this, I was reminded of the dating where you sit and talk to a suiter for about 5 minutes, and then a bell rings, and you move to the next. Lol I felt the same about Suezie it's like she appeared from nowhere 6d
See All 13 Comments
willaful I think Susie must be an illegitimate sister, or somehow else involved in whatever nefarious use Tom's father was making of the house.

@mctrish A long con sounds about right.

I'm finding the story a bit scattered. It just keep hopping around.
6d
BarkingMadRead I think Susie was conceived in that house, and #themaninblack at the end was Vicky‘s attacker. Carmichael gives me the ick, something is off with him. And did he lie about his mom? Aren‘t Tom and Charles going to watch him fight? 6d
CrowCAH Carmichael is no better than Dain. He‘s trouble with a capital T. It had to have been tough to ascertain a person‘s true personality when chaperoned and in public. 6d
StayCurious @BarkingMadRead oh you‘re so right! I forgot about the fight 6d
CogsOfEncouragement I‘m guessing Vicky‘s parents would have a much different opinion of Carmichael if they knew of his boxing match over an inconsequential matter. Carmichael trying to come off as an adoring son when he is off to a bout is repulsive. Vicky‘s parents sending her out to catch a husband while keeping all these family secrets seems an utterly impossible task on top of the fact she prefers to not marry in the first place. 6d
CogsOfEncouragement And someone get poor Susie a robe and slippers. 6d
Cheshirecat913 @CogsOfEncouragement 😆 Yes, please! I was cold for her. Carmichael is definitely sus (as much daughter always says). Always questioning..first Tom, now Vicky. 6d
CogsOfEncouragement @Cheshirecat913 So true, he asks pointed (rude) questions and provides vague info and outright lies on his end. And him throwing shade at other men is such a Wickham move. 6d
julieclair Ohhh… Carmichael‘s fight… it hadn‘t dawned on me that it was to take place at the same time he was supposed to be shopping with his mother. So he lied to Vicky. Way too slick for my taste. (edited) 6d
TheAromaofBooks The “she's a member of the family now“ line makes me think Susie must be illegitimate. I'm enjoying this story, but also just want to be told what the heck is going on with Tom and his family instead of all these aggravating hints lol 6d

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb.14: Ch.5: boy, working the crowd mired in social niceties would have been a difficult task. I‘m sad that Vicky doesn‘t have any friends at the ball. I suppose because she was -and is - a tomboy. That‘s why the loss of Tom was felt so keenly. He was her main friend. Poor thing. What on earth happened with Tom? I‘m dying to know! ⬇️

StayCurious Ch.6: is Carmichael jealous of Tom‘s relationship with Vicky? It would appear so. I love the way insults were delivered so smoothly back then. Ooh - a cutting remark…shots fired! 1w
mcctrish I think Carmichael is jealous. Does Tom think Vicky didn‘t write him?

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb 13: Ch.3: wow, women really had little power back then! Poor Vicky is being told she must marry, and in a hurry, to I protect her father‘s estate. One thing I‘ll say is I never heard of a woman inheriting the title so I wonder if that would have actually happened or if the author is taking poetic licence.⬇️

StayCurious I will also paint myself in a bad light: I hope Althea does feel at least a bit guilty for the problems that now face Vicky. But that‘s a terrible thing to say, I know. ⬇️ 1w
StayCurious Ch.4: Vicky attends a ball with her mother and starts the business of securing a husband. Easier said than done- but she was making good progress with
Mr.Carmichael until they were interrupted by Dain, the villain himself.

mcctrish Thank goodness the next door neighbour arrived 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 and I do agree that while Althea‘s life is awful it shouldn‘t mean Vicky‘s goes down the toilet too ( but I get the urgency at not letting Dain get his pugilist hands on it ) (edited) 1w
IndoorDame It‘s sad that her parents are clearly about as progressive as it gets for this time and social class, and this is still the only option they come up with 1w
DebinHawaii @StayCurious I don‘t have great vibes from Althea so far, so I share your sentiments. I feel bad for Vicky. 1w
BarkingMadRead Ughhhhh Dain! I, too, am a horrible human that hopes Althea feels a little guilty 🤣 1w
LiseWorks I think, though, because of her abuse, she is in a terrible position, first because she is back in her father's household, and she probably thinks she failed with her marriage. I think she had great courage to leave. A lot of women stay. She may even be terrified that Dain will come and fetch her. Women were considered property in those days, and they really had no say. It's the same for Victoria, her father says, find a husband, so she has to. 1w
Librarybelle I am unhappy for Vicky‘s sake…different time, different place, but it still is a horrid situation. I can only begin to imagine the scandal that Althea will face. What she did is pretty uncommon at this time, and society will fault her more for not “standing by her man” than doing what she did, running for her life. It is rather unfair that Vicky has to pay a price in this. An uncomfortable truth. 1w
CogsOfEncouragement I have had questions about why uncertain female characters were able to be wealthy, independent of a man. Maybe this is accurate: https://www.quora.com/In-Pride-and-Prejudice-why-is-Lady-Catherine-de-Bourgh-abl... 1w
CogsOfEncouragement I have to ask you though @StayCurious and @BarkingMadRead you want Thea to feel guilty? Or do you want her to be able to feel empathy for what her sister must now do, even while dealing with her own current despair? It seems to me the only person guilty is Dain - who certainly feels nothing of the sort. 1w
willaful I think there's something Althea isn't telling us. I hope she's not lying about everything, because that would really stink, in both the Doylist and Watsonian senses.

And I'm furious at their parents. They made an enormous mistake letting Althea marry a man she barely knew, so they want to fix it by doing the same to Vicky. Worse even, since it was Althea's own choice.
1w
CrowCAH It‘s interesting that the daughters could inherit. I really don‘t like Dain. 1w
BarkingMadRead @CogsOfEncouragement I want her to feel something. Anything. None of this is her fault. But it‘s also not Vicky‘s fault, and what they‘re asking goes against her very nature. 1w
julieclair I feel so sorry for Vicky, and it makes me so sad to think that this is probably a pretty accurate portrayal of the powerlessness of women at that time. 1w
mcctrish @CrowCAH don‘t they inherit through their husbands ? Or since Thea has one now they have to 1w
CrowCAH @mcctrish traditionally I thought it was through the male line. That‘s why it was so important to beget male heirs. Or a house/land would be entailed to another male relation. Perhaps there was a way to state that a legitimate daughter could inherit. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1w
CogsOfEncouragement @willaful @BarkingMadRead I think Vicky doesn‘t know as much as her parents, so we don‘t know either. (Her parents didn‘t pass on ALL the horrible details.) I‘m reading this as Vicky being confused by Thea being so quiet. Maybe the author is trying to show the shame that Thea is feeling? 1w
Cheshirecat913 It's such a terrible situation all around! I did get the same vibes about Althea though, just the way she said, "You said you would help." Like, yes, Althea's situation is terrible, and I want her to escape, but it almost felt like she would drag down Vicky to do it. But Althea is in a bad place, traumatized and desperate, so it could just be coming out wrong. 1w
StayCurious @CogsOfEncouragement I think I wanted her to feel a bit bad for the situation Vicky now finds herself in - I didn‘t like her line “you said you would help”…but I also feel really bad for her so I‘m torn! (edited) 1w
CogsOfEncouragement @StayCurious True. That is an immense ask. 1w

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb 12: Ch.1: what an interesting way to start our story! We meet Vicky who does not spend her days indoors in the parlour, but rather works hard to help her father run their estate. Then, just as she sees a man from her past who broke all ties with her inexplicably, she is attacked by a masked villain! And the chase is on! But it ends with Vicky‘s pride - as well as her backside - getting injured. ⬇️

StayCurious There‘s an allusion as to why Tom broke ties with Vicky 5 years ago. I‘m curious as to what happened and why his father sent him to the continent. ⬇️ 1w
StayCurious Ch.2: Vicki‘s sister has escaped her abusive husband - in a time when you could be essentially trapped in an unhappy marriage, she was brave to leave. But will she be forced to return to him? Vicki‘s morning adventures take a backseat to her sister‘s suffering. 1w

CogsOfEncouragement What a start. I‘m very interested in Tom‘s secrets. I‘m concerned for the wellbeing of Thea and Vicky‘s father as he confronts Dain. Also quite concerned for all of them since Vicky was attacked on their property. Well, I‘m invested in the story! 1w

#LittensLoveRomance Feb 12: Prologue: Well, that certainly sucked! Can you say worst boss…nay…worst person ever? Poor Lottie! What is she going to do now?
Ch.1: there‘s a line in Friends where Pheobe says “see, this is why you don‘t lie!” And this…this right here…is why 😄 time to get a really good actress I suppose. They are in LA after all. And he has the money to hire someone. Unless something better comes along…and I have a feeling it will.

peanutnine I was expecting the lie about the fiancee, but he made her pregnant too?? That is so much harder to fake! And honestly if I were Dave, I'd think that was a bit too much of a coincidence 🤔 1w

OriginalCyn620 Yeah, the boss/friend seems like a real twatwaffle. She blatantly lied to Lottie and knew she was going to fire her from the beginning.

julieclair Hhmmmm…. Not a fan of Huxley, even less of a fan of that ridiculous boss… but I like Lottie, and I also like Dave and his pregnant fiancée. Maybe Huxley and the ridiculous boss could have their own not so meet cute, and Lottie could have a real meet cute with some nice guy? ?? 1w
Skygoddess1 Talk about an opening that hooks its claws into you. Poor Lottie, but given the kind of “friend” Angela is, Lottie is definitely better off without her. As for Huxley, man on man I cannot wait to see how things go for him and his “pregnant fiancée” all so he can land a deal, lol. 1w

#IDLR #InDeathLongReadalong Ch.20: What a fight and what a way to end the book! Eve and Roarke have started something and we‘ll see where it goes in future books. As for the Deblass case - it was a tough one that opened up wounds old and new. Eve took it to heart and saw it through. We‘ll see that she takes each case to heart because that‘s just who she is. Who will she meet along the way? Stay tuned! ⬇️

StayCurious Overall I enjoyed this first intro to Eve and Roarke and the New York of the future. It‘s dark, gritty, and can be hard to handle, but it can also be funny and full of heart. Join us when we read the second book in the series in February. We‘re thinking of doing just a weekly check in so people can read more at their own pace. Let us know what you prefer. 3w

CatLass007 I generally read an entire book at once. I find it difficult to focus when I‘m reading several books at the same time at a chapter a day. I know you host several different buddy reads @StayCurious and I‘m so impressed that you do so much for each book. If you want to do daily check-ins or weekly check-ins, you should do what feels comfortable for you. I‘m on #TeamRenee! 3w
willaful Weekly check in. ✓

I didn't love this as much as the first time round, probably because I've read a lot more and am more sensitive to certain things. But I still love Eve's character and I especially love when she has a moment of vulnerability and lets things spill, as she does at the end here. We'll get to my very favorite moment in Ceremony in Death. 😍

I'm currently reading a Murderbot book and it and Eve have a lot in common!

#LittensLoveRomance Review: overall a good love story with likeable characters that grow a lot in the span of the story. I don‘t know that I‘m interested in Violet enough to continue with the series though. I didn‘t really care for her character in this book. But I liked Lily and am glad she got her HEA.

OriginalCyn620 I didn‘t know this was a series! But I feel the same way - I really enjoyed this book and the characters but I don‘t care enough about Violet to read her story. 3w

CatLass007 @StayCurious Thank you. I had the impression that Treadles was very unsettled by his conversation with his wife and her desire to run her father‘s business but she wasn‘t allowed to do anything at all by her brother. He seemed a little less secure about his relationship with his wife after their conversation. And maybe he is a little afraid that Charlotte, whether his wife ever meets her or not, is going to be a “bad” influence on his wife. 3w

#IDLR #InDeathLongReadalong Ch.18-19: Eve learns of the horrible things that happened in the Deblass family, things that mirror what happened to Eve in some ways. The senator‘s daughter reveals what went on behind closed doors to both her and Sharon. It‘s enough to allow Eve to arrest the hypocritical old man. Afterwards, Eve reveals a bit about her past to Roarke and is able to lean on him for a bit. ⬇️

StayCurious Later, after a rough interrogation stirs up the senators health problems, he‘s released and given a reprieve for a few days. Beyond pissed, Eve goes to Roarkes but instead finds the sour old butler, who basically calls her a mongrel. Annoyed, and even a bit hurt, Eve takes the cat and storms home. And Rockman, the old man‘s assistant, is waiting for Eve at her apartment, ready to add her to the list of victims. Final chapter tomorrow! 3w

CatLass007 I love the cat picture! I have enjoyed this buddy read. 3w

willaful @IndoorDame It's a classic upper-class English approach... another form of giving the person a pistol and leaving them to “do the right thing.“ I don't feel too torn up about it, honestly.

If Mrs Marbleton is indeed going to be Moriarty, I think she'll be a more interesting and sympathetic one. Not that I know a lot about the original character.

Who is the unknown caller? His mom, maybe? Now that he‘s with Lily, I‘m sure he‘s going to want to spend all his time with her. I sure hope he remembers to write his book! ⬇️

StayCurious I‘m glad that violet acknowledged that Lily won the bet. Although I have a funny feeling the wedding won‘t happen as planned. 4w
LiseWorks Yeah I've been wondering about that unknown caller too 4w

Graciouswarriorprincess I‘m glad too that Violet said that Lily won! Maybe now her family won‘t be on her case. I wonder if it‘s Nick‘s dad or mom calling him. 4w
willaful @StayCurious Right there with you! And I'm fine with that. 😁

@Graciouswarriorprincess I'm guessing his dad, though it'd be interesting if he got to confront his mom over her abandoning him, too.
4w
Graciouswarriorprincess @willaful I hope it‘s not his dad! 4w
mhillis My thoughts exactly!! When is he going to write The book?? 4w

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent I‘m finding myself a bit more interested in the investigative work by Treadles than in the sudden side plot with Charlotte and Mrs.Marbleton. Unless Marbleton has something to do with the man following Charlotte. If she doesn‘t end up having anything to do with our main case then I will feel as though the author veered a bit off course. ⬇️

StayCurious That being said, how interesting what we are learning about the servants at Sackville‘s house! Treadles is like a dog with a bone - I love it. 4w
LiseWorks I love his way of investigating too 4w

CatLass007 Treadles is an excellent detective on his own but with the assistance of Charlotte he becomes a superior one. 4w
willaful I feel like the plotting of the book is kind of loosey-goosey overall. Perhaps that's in tribute to the source material? 4w
peanutnine I love seeing Treadles at work! Also I have a hunch that Marbleton may be Moriarty? Setting up for the later books in the series possibly 4w
vonnie862 I too find Treadles' investigation more interesting than Charlotte's. 4w

CatLass007 Thanks, @julieclair! I‘ve finished this already so I really have to be careful about what I say. (edited) 4w
mcctrish @willaful I feel this too and I wasn‘t sure if it was the reading it a chapter at a time or the plotting and @peanutnine I think that Marbleton/Moriarty is brilliant @StayCurious could you add me to tagging please 🙏🏻 I‘ve become obsessed and don‘t want to miss a post 4w

CatLass007 The description compares this to Pretty Woman, parts of which I enjoy, but really is an awful movie that glorifies prostitution. I understand that no literal prostitution is involved in this book, but it seems that women are still reduced to prostituting themselves way too often in this world. 4w

#InDeathLongReadalong #IDLR Ch.15: Eve is surprised to see Roarke still at her apt in the morning. She expected him to be gone but he stuck around, and he tells her he‘s sticking around for a while. He thinks he loves her so she‘d better get used to that. Their discussion here grows serious. Someone from Eve‘s past did hurt her and she‘s starting to remember. Warning for new readers: as Eve starts to delve into her past, it will be tough to read⬇️

StayCurious When Eve returns to her office, it‘s to find the senator and his slick aide waiting for her, wanting to interfere in her investigation. The more they put their fingers in, the more Eve is starting to wonder what‘s in it for them. (edited) 1mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.18-19: I like that Lily is going to give it a try with Nick because she obviously is crazy about him. I‘m glad that her date with Oliver was drama free. Every time I think there‘s gonna be drama and angst in this book I am pleasantly surprised. I mean, Nick has his share of angst but Lily is mostly grounded. I think she‘ll be good for him. ⬇️

StayCurious Just like his friendship with Marcus is #Friendshipgoals. Still. I feel like something else has to go wrong. Right? Will Nicks parents show up? 1mo
OriginalCyn620 I feel like his dad would show up or contact him and cause problems for Nick! 1mo

willaful It could be the rest of the book will be about Nick getting over his fear and acknowledging himself as the author. 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @OriginalCyn620 I totally agree! But, I also agree with @willaful ! We‘ll see. 😊 1mo
Catsandbooks Definitely hope we see Nick grow and become more confident in his work and himself! And I hope Lily gets the courage to ask for what she wants and deserves 1mo
julieclair I feel pretty certain that something is going to go wrong. Nick‘s parents showing up is an intriguing thought. 4w
willaful @Graciouswarriorprincess @OriginalCyn620 It would make a lot of sense for both things to happen. 4w
Skygoddess1 They definitely help balance one another out. Lily gives Nick the confidence he needs to deal with his family and work to be the type of author he‘s always wanted to be while Nick gives Lily the confidence to believe in herself and calm her worries. 4w
mhillis @Skygoddess1 Yes, they are really good together!! It does seem like he should be working on the book more though lol 4w
Skygoddess1 @mhillis Agreed, hopefully he‘ll get over his writers block if he can finally deal with his issues with his parents 4w

#InDeathLongReadalong #IDLR Ch.14: Both Eve and Roarke have trust issues. Both Eve and Roarke care about each other. And this makes them vulnerable to each other. When Eve is forced to do her job and bring Roarke in for questioning, he is less than pleased and the tenuous connection they have made is threatened. ⬇️

StayCurious Luckily, Feeney tells him what Eve has been dealing with and Roarke apologizes for not believing in her and she says she never thought he was guilty. It was an emotional and highly charged scene and shows the depths of their feelings. They better catch the killer soon - he‘s showing too much interest in Eve and that can‘t be good. 1mo

TheAromaofBooks I did feel like Roarke overreacted a little. She literally told him that a weapon registered in his name was found at a crime scene. Did he think that she could just ignore protocol in favor of her personal feelings?? 1mo
StayCurious @TheAromaofBooks I guess he doesn‘t fully understand how seriously she takes being a cop. 1mo
ShananigansReads I just listened to the questioning scene in the car and I'm so glad Feeny stood up for Eve, but I also feel like the killer has to be close to Eve and can't help but suspect Fenny too. 4w

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.16-17: So Lily gets an interview (not a job offer) but decides to tell a bunch of coworkers and go celebrate. Considering the luck she‘s had so far with interviews, she‘s being a bit too hopeful I think. Wouldn‘t it be embarrassing to not get the job and have to tell everyone? God, what if Edith found out? Yikes! ⬇️

StayCurious Anyway…finally Nick spills the beans! He is Strick! I‘m impressed that the author had him tell the truth towards the middle of the story- not the very end. Will she be able to forgive him? I hope so - his groveling was sweet. 1mo
LiseWorks @StayCurious I'm with you with the celebration when she doesn't have the job yet 1mo
See All 10 Comments
peanutnine I'm glad she at least found out the truth from Nick himself deciding to confess. I was expecting it to come out another way and then she would have felt even more betrayed. 1mo
willaful The author's timing was perfect, because I literally was ready to throw the book... -- okay, figuratively, it's an ebook 😁 -- if Nick rejected her one more damn time.

I also had that thought, that telling your coworkers about an interview is not the best choice. Keep those things under your hat!

I think Lily overreacted, primarily for the sake of the plot. But I'm easy, a good apology will always win me over.
1mo
OriginalCyn620 I just said this yesterday, but like @peanutnine I thought Lily would find out the truth in some other, horrible way, but not from Nick himself. I was so (pleasantly) surprised today when Nick confessed! It took him a while, but he did the right thing. It would‘ve been so much worse for Lily to find out from someone else! And TBH, I‘m probably gonna finish this one tomorrow because I have to know what happens! 1mo
peanutnine @OriginalCyn620 yeah it was really hard to stop reading today 1mo
willaful @peanutnine @OriginalCyn620 I also expected that and I think it was really sharp to have Nick come clean after all, because the honest apology was really necessary for *me* to forgive him. So now I get to be annoyed at Lily for not forgiving him yet. 😂 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess I‘m glad that Nick told Lily. I can understand why Lily isn‘t forgiving yet but hope that she does. 1mo
Roary47 I‘m so glad he finally told the truth. 🥰 1mo

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Ch.16: I love seeing Charlotte start her business of helping people. These mini mysteries are so interesting! But…let‘s get back to the main event. Who killed Sackville and the other ladies? I haven‘t the foggiest so far. At least, I don‘t see how they were connected.

IndoorDame The mini puzzles are sorta giving me Nancy Drew vibes. Definitely fun! And I‘m psyched business is talking off, but I‘m also itching to get back to our murder(s). 1mo
willaful @IndoorDame I'm reminded of Christie's Partners in Crime, where they play at being different fictional detectives in each episode. 1mo

mcctrish I‘m curious who‘s following her. It was Ingram but is it still or is she getting too close for comfort? 1mo
peanutnine @mcctrish I didn't think it was Ingram having her followed, or at least he denied it. I think it might have to do with the case... 1mo
vonnie862 The mini mysteries really show that there are more books to this series. Also, I loved how Mrs. Watson wanted to charge more for their services. You go girl! 1mo
mcctrish @peanutnine the stalker freaks me out, who knows who she is ( Sherlock) ?Or is it related to her fall from grace ? 1mo

#InDeathLongReadalong #IDLR Ch.14: Another murder and this time, a weapon registered to Roarke is found on scene. An obvious plant, especially because Roarke is off planet at the time of murder. But the killer wouldn‘t have known that. Only a select few were privy. Unfortunately to do her job and clear Roarke, Eve needs to bring him in for questioning. Will this hurt the progress they‘ve made in trusting each other? ⬇️

StayCurious Looks like the killer is out to hurt Eve, personally and professionally. Could it be the chief of police? His name is on Sharon‘s blackmail list. Naughty naughty. Not something he‘d want made public. 1mo
willaful Ah, the gut punch momment.... 1mo
MrsV It definitely brings the question as to why she is blackmailing him. If being a “companion” is legal now, there has to be something more than that I would think. 1mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.14-15: Good for Lily for agreeing to go out with Oliver. Too bad her cat emergency caused her to cancel! At least she had Nick‘s help - which just again proves that Nick is a good guy. But he‘s still pining for her and there‘s no way these two can be just friends. I‘m curious to see what will happen with Edith‘s imprint. Maybe she‘ll be ousted and Lily will work with someone who actually can help her with her career goals.

LiseWorks One way to get over a fear of a cat is for that cat to be sick. 1mo
OriginalCyn620 I wonder if Lily will actually go out with Oliver, and if so, if that will coax Nick to confess the truth and his true feelings. I really just want these two to put the cards all on the table! 1mo
Roary47 I‘m so glad Nick was brave enough to help Lily. I‘m sure that was not easy. Oliver seems really nice. 🥰 1mo
julieclair I love that Oliver looks exactly like Lily‘s mental image of Strick. He seems like a nice guy and I hope he can be her date to the wedding. 1mo

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Ch.15: so someone was cruelly and slowly poisoning Sackville but they grew impatient and went for a faster acting poison. Poor guy! And upon closer inspection, not is all what it seems in the household who served him. I think Becky Birtles is definitely a key element here. I think Meek‘s past is just a sad coincidence.

willaful My first thought was that there were two poisoners, but I guess this theory is more likely. 1mo
mcctrish I wondered if the poisoner knew about Nancy Monk/Mrs Meek and got an idea 1mo

IndoorDame @willaful I had the same thought. But I‘m not sure that actually makes sense. And I definitely don‘t have 2 separate really solid suspects 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
IndoorDame I‘m also finding Mrs. Meeks super believable. I don‘t think she was involved. But I think the housekeeper is definitely lying. I just haven‘t decided if it‘s about small stuff like still having the photo because she wants to protect someone‘s reputation, or about something more significant… 1mo
LiseWorks Something is afoot with the Whiskey decanter. Where did it go? Why was Mrs Cornish looking for it? 1mo
vonnie862 I hope he wasn't suffering too much with the slow poisoning. But I agree, Birtles sounds suspicious. 1mo
Roary47 Yes, I think the housekeeper is hiding something too @IndoorDame Could the whiskey decanter be a clue? Would they have done fingerprints in this time? 1mo
StayCurious @Roary47 I saw on Murdoch Mysteries which takes place at the same time that forensic science like fingerprints was in its infancy at this time. I don‘t know how accurate that show is though 1mo

#LittensLoveRomance Ch.12-13: Nick is such a goner for Lily, but his past is so heartbreaking that it‘s definitely holding him back in a big way. I was surprised he shared so much with her. When she finds out he‘s Strick she‘s going to be devastated.

OriginalCyn620 I‘m so glad Nick opened up to Lily! That‘s a big step for him for sure. This is agony waiting for the other shoe to drop! I also have a feeling that the truth is gonna come out in a really horrible way, not from Nick, which will make it even more difficult for Lily to forgive him. It would be easier (and best) if Nick told her himself. 1mo
LiseWorks Is it just me or do you find this book just goes on and on: like tell her already! 1mo
willaful @LiseWorks Not just you. @OrigianCyn620 That would be pretty typical of romance. 😳 1mo
Roary47 Oh man Nick you need to tell her. I‘m thinking that too @OriginalCyn620 I have a feeling it is either someone else, or he means well by showing her it‘s him. The cover though makes me think that he will give her his sequel to edit. If so, I hope it‘s the love story and apology. 🫣😬🥹 1mo
StayCurious @LiseWorks maybe you‘re not enjoying the audio version you‘re listening to. While I do find it‘s a bit slow paced, I think Nick needs time to come to terms with his feelings for Lily and her family 1mo
LiseWorks @StayCurious I am definitely not enjoying the audio version. The woman mc is so annoying with her sister voices 🙄 she makes them sound so immature. But I find describing clothes of every single person in the room also annoying. This book is 400 pages long. To me, for this type of story, there should have been more editing out that part. I don't need to know what everyone is wearing. 1mo
mhillis I was thinking the same thing @Roary47 Like eventually he is going to ask her for some kind of help with the book!! 1mo
