Snakes and Ladders Progress Update: *Ladder*
A Dangerous Collaboration (Veronica Speedwell #4) - Deanna Raybourn,Angèle Masters

I pre-ordered the audiobook edition of the latest release in Raybourn's Veronica Speedwell series and was dying to listen to it, so I was excited the 'A' in "A Dangerous Collaboration" fulfills the prompt for square #98: title starts with any of the letters in LADDERS.  And I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint. The island setting off the Cornwall coast, the insular island community and its folklore, the resident nobility's troubles, the dynamic/sibling rivalry between Stoker and his brother, as well as Tiberius' connection to the mystery all made for a good story.  And declarations by both Stoker and Veronica seem to have cleared the way for their relationship to move beyond the rather silly device(s) Raybourn has used to keep them platonic friends through four books. Was it perfect?  No. I had a few quibbles, but they didn't distract from my enjoyment of the book, and as always the touches of humor were great fun. While the similarities to Amelia Peabody are still noticeable to me, Raybourn has managed to make the Veronica Speedwell series uniquely her own, and I'll happily continue to read Veronica's adventures in future books.
