Quick Review
Unmasking Miss Appleby - Emily Larkin

This was a really good book.. I know not very descriptive but it captured me and sucked me in.. I am not normally a historical reader anymore but the inclusion of the Fairy Godmother in the story and the magic peaked my interest.. I kept feeling I got the plot line and story arc and then it went a direction I was not expecting... 

 

And can I say I loved the character development... the interactions between the two main characters was great.. some pretty funny one liners... 

 

Overall I enjoyed the book and I think I have found a new series and author...So yea me.. I have already bought and started reading the second in the series.. we will see.. (I have high hopes)

Metamorphosis not for me
Unmasking Miss Appleby - Emily Larkin

I liked the hero and the heroine but the paranormal aspect of shapeshifting kept them from building a romantic relationship together. I know they spend time together but hero doesn't know it's her and they never bond that way. 
The trying to murder mystery was loose end, red-herring, and fractured for me; didn't flow or provide entertainment for me to follow along with.
I may be too square for this story, lol. Like I said in a update, there was more intimacy between the heroine and her "pego" for most of the story than between her and the hero. I'd be interested in reading this author if she didn't include paranormal elements because I liked the hero and heroine's character.

Reading Update: 50%
Unmasking Miss Appleby - Emily Larkin

 

How I feel reading 50% of the book and so far the most sexual intimacy has been between the heroine and her "pego". 

*No transsexual identities here, a heterosexual cisgender woman who has the gift of metamorphosis.

The Baronet's Bride
The Baronet's Bride (Midnight Quill Book 3) - Emily Larkin

My reviews are honest & they contain spoilers. For more, follow me:

 

The Baronet’s Bride is a novella by Emily Larkin and the final installment of her historical romance series, Midnight Quill. I’ve loved and enjoyed the author’s previous works, and this new installment is no different. It was well-written like them all. In fact, for me, it’s a surprising installment in the series that I didn’t expect to see but was quite delighted when it was released. I’ll try to explain as I go.

Book 1 of Midnight Quill was The Spinster’s Secret. When I read it back in 2013, it wasn’t a series. In fact, the prologue of sort, The Countess’s Groom was published after book 1. But it was written in a way that I was still able to enjoy it, even though I generally like reading my series in order. The connections between both books were nicely done but they were also good standalones on their own. Personally I don’t think you absolutely need to read the prologue before reading book 1, though I’d suggest reading it just for the enjoyment. But The Baronet’s Bride is rather a straight-out extension of The Spinster’s Secret. The h and H of this novella, Gareth and Ceci, were introduced as the secondary couple, and I thought they got their HEA too because they got married within that story. I wanted a bit more of their romance but wasn’t expecting a separate installment. When I think of the publication date of book 1, it obviously was quite a long time coming too.

Discovering Miss Dalrymple
Discovering Miss Dalrymple (Baleful Godmother Historical Romance Series Book 6) - Emily Larkin

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Discovering Miss Dalrymple is the book 6 of Emily Larkin’s intriguing Baleful Godmother series. I’ve been following this series since book 1, and to tell you the truth, despite having a bit of a hiccup in the beginning of it, I have come to love this series. This latest installment was no different with a storyline of the usual flair of magic and it’s lovely characters.

The Baleful Godmother is a Regency-set series based on female characters who have special “gifts” or powers. But if you want to start from the very beginning, you can with The Fey Quartet. These are a set of novellas listed as “prologue” to this series. Set in Medieval-era England, the prologues explain exactly how our unique heroines come to inherit their “gifts”.

Books 1 and 2, Unmasking Miss Appleby and Resisting Miss Merryweather had something common in them apart from Baletongue, our dubious Fairy Godmother. Heroines of both of these books, Charlotte and Anne AKA Merry (respectively), were bestowed their gifts at the age of 25, which I thought was THE age they were supposed to have their wish fulfilled and 2. They were cousins so the stories were linked that way. However, the h of book 3 Trusting Miss Trentham, Letty, has had her wish fulfilled at 21. “Why” is explained in this installment as the h, Eleanor or Nelly, had her wish fulfilled at 23. The women, who were originally granted a wish each, were sisters, and our heroines simply descended from a different sister each, hence the age of their wish fulfillment differs from one another. Therein lies the uniqueness of this series, you never know to which direction the author is going to lead you. An element of surprise is always there.
