I haven’t started it yet, but I’m going to read Unmasking Juliet next. It is cute and meets one of my letters I struggle with a little for my alphabet challenge.
Ever since she was a little girl learning to make decadent truffles in her family’s chocolate shop, Juliet Arabella has been aware of the bitter feud between the Arabellas and the Mezzanottes. With their rival chocolate boutiques on the same street in Napa Valley, these families never mix. Until one night, when Juliet anonymously attends the annual masquerade ball. In a moonlit vineyard, she finds herself falling for a gorgeous stranger, a man who reminds her what passion is like outside of the kitchen. But her bliss is short-lived when she discovers her masked prince is actually Leo Mezzanotte, newly returned from Paris and the heir to her archenemy’s confection dynasty.
With her mind in a whirl, Juliet leaves for Italy to represent the Arabellas in a prestigious chocolate competition. The prize money will help her family’s struggling business, and Juliet figures it’s a perfect opportunity to forget Leo…only to find him already there and gunning for victory. As they compete head-to-head, Leo and Juliet’s fervent attraction boils over. But Juliet’s not sure whether to trust her adversary, or give up on the sweetest love she’s ever tasted.
What did you just finish reading?
I finished A Devil in Scotland. It had a strong influence of family and loyalty. I really enjoyed seeing the family side of things. While Callum and his wolf Waya are their own pack, his wee bairn of a niece adds herself, her little mop of a dog Reginald, and her mother to the pack. This rag-tag group was so fun to see interact and just enjoyable. The other side of the plot was mystery and intrigue and suspicion and murder. DANGER. I thought I had everything figured out – as did Callum – I just didn’t know how things would play out. The plot was crafted perfectly. It didn’t drag or lag and it didn’t feel like feeler just to make the book longer. Each interaction regarding the MacCreath family inheritance and Sanderson’s shipping played a vital role in the plot development.
I did agree with Rebecca that she was very naive. I felt she was more naive than most. How did she not suspect something afoot with a brooding husband for six months who then storms out in a phaeton – not a covered carriage – in the worst storm in years? A prolific swimmer who drowns in waist-deep water? Come on! While Rebecca had grit and fire, she did seem to be a bit of a bunny.
