Brunetti takes on corruption and murder - another successful novel.
Beastly Things - Donna Leon

 

Inspector Brunetti, Venice's finest, has another murder to solve and this one involves the meat-processing industry. The usual characters appear and there's a lot of talk about the worsening conditions in Venice due to modernisation and tourism. Like other Brunetti novels, this one is an easy read and enjoyable in many ways, especially if you know Venice.

Beastly Bones
Beastly Bones: A Jackaby Novel - William Ritter

Oh my goodness, this series is so much fun! I loved this second book every bit as much as the first. It was great to see Abigail assert herself more and get to flex her paleontology muscles and get a glimpse of what might have been had her first fateful dig not failed so miserably. Still, I can’t be anything but grateful for the failure that set her on the path to employment with Jackaby. These two may be my favorite duo of supernatural investigators.

 

I don’t think I’m going to be able to review this without squeeing inarticulately and dropping heaps of spoilers, so I’ll just say it’s a quick (too quick! I want more!), fun (so much fun!) read and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

 

I read this for the Halloween Bingo 2018 Shifters square.

Beastly Duke & The Winsome Bride, Charity McColl
Beastly Duke & the Winsome Bride: Regenc... Beastly Duke & the Winsome Bride: Regency Romance (Regency Fairytale Romance Book 1) - Charity McColl,Pure Read

I enjoyed this romance and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. This is also book 13 of the Pure Read Clean Read Vol 2 bundle of 41 books. This book touches on responding to more than looks and more on the inner man. I loved the ending of this.

I was expecting a more darker tone
Beastly Bones: A Jackaby Novel - William Ritter

So it may help to read the first one in order to grasp a bit of understanding of the character relationships and the overall plot (there’s a main one underneath the layers here)

 

***Possible spoilers here you’ve been warned***

 

I loved the first one, really liked the characters and Jackaby’s quirkiness. With this one though, it’s a different type of case, albeit still with a supernatural/fantastical element but it felt like you were reading an Indiana Jones type of adventure. Which is all right and it made things different and interesting but I was looking forward to something a little more darker and spookier.

 

However, the adventure aspect with the missing bones was still well written and enjoyable to read. It took more of a comedic tone and I enjoyed the fighting between Lamb and Horner over the bones while poor Charlie seems to be always stuck in the middle of each argument. Abigail really shined in this one with her passion of dinosaur bones, she was in her element and showed how much she loved doing the job despite the obstacles she had because of her father and society. She really stepped up and developed a lot in this book.

 

And yes! She breaks the tension with Charlie!!! Finally! It was all throughout the novel until she finally took matters into her own hands. I like them both together. They seem to complement each other well enough even though it seems she has a much more determined and strong minded temperament whereas Charlie is more mellow and laid back. Well maybe Abigail will slowly bring him out of his shell?

 

What I enjoyed the most about this plot is there’s an even deeper and darker story underneath and this was just a diversion. That pale man is creepy and I hope it gets explored more in the next book as it features Jenny’s story too. This was a fun read but I’ll be happier going onto much darker things in the story.
