    4.5 stars Veronica Speedwell is one of my very favorite heroines, and her adventures in A Dangerous Collaboration do not disappoint. The witty dialogue between Veronica and Stoker always entertains, and this installment is set on a remote island adding a gothic element to the tale...

    A true delight -- it's historical fiction with all the essentials: a spunky, adventurous heroine, a dashing, hunky partner, and a great mystery to solve. If you haven't started this series yet, I urge you to begin at once, and read them from the beginning, in order! What it's about:...

    Another delightful addition to one of my favorite series. This book follows our heroes and my low-key bias Tiberius on the journey to a small island off the coast of England. Malcolm, their host and Tiberius? long-time friend, brings them to the island with one goal in mind. To s...

    There is no better way to start 2019 than a review for one of my favorite series. This is the fourth installment of Veronica Speedwell, and I went in with higher than average expectations. For the most part, I enjoyed the book. Four stars is not a negative rating, it is difficult to lo...

    It's always a bittersweet reader's dilemma to want to race through a book to get to the end and to want to prolong such a good book for as long as possible. This fourth installment in the Veronica Speedwell series is a winner for me from start to finish, but now the wait begins for the...

    Is there truly anything better than a tantalizing mystery and a slow burn romance all set in England during the 19th century? Maybe but you would be hard pressed to find it! The Veronical Speedwell series is just so much fun. It has been a favorite of mine since the very first bo...

    Although A Dangerous Collaboration opens on the heels of the previous book, the story quickly jumps forward six months, to a time after Veronica and Lady Cordelia?s hasty expedition to Madeira. While Veronica could not vocalize her need to escape Stoker, the truth of it is that she i...

    The house party with a twist is such a trope in old-timey feeling mysteries... and with good reason. Take a remote location, preferably in a house with some grandeur or mystique, add in a motley assortment of house guests, all invited for a variety of reasons, most of which end up bein...

    I've given this a B+ at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars Like many a fan of Deanna Raybourn?s series of Victorian-set historical mysteries starring the intrepid lady lepidopterist, Veronica Speedwell, I?m as much drawn to the complicated relationship established between Veronica and her...

    The Delight: At the close of the last book, things were left in an interesting place for Veronica and Stoker. I was eager to proceed and see what came of them next as they faced another exciting murder adventure together while exchanging acrimonious quips. A Dangerous Collaboration ...

    Tiberius, Stoker's brother invites Veronica to a house party on a remote island off the tip of Cornwall. He promises her larva from a rare butterfly and the temptation is too great. Well, that and the chance to ruffle Stoker's feathers. Stoker of course isn't invited. To keep up appear...

    4.5 Stars I?ve been having fun with the Veronica Speedwell series, but I have to say these last two books (3 & 4) have been my favorite to date. I do love the mysteries, and the modern clever woman Veronica presents, but I love the last two because we are finally getting somew...

    4.5/5 Definitely a transitional book. The mystery took a while to get going. Definitely spent the whole book wanting to smush Veronica and Stoker?s faces together. Kind of developed an extremely soft spot for Tiberius, despite the fact he?s kind of a shitstick. Definitely still ...

    A castle on a secluded island off Cornwall. Hidden tunnels and priest holes. A poison garden. The vanished bride. And one of my favorite tropes?the house party where every guest has a secret. I totally enjoyed this book, and while I may agree with some of my friends? criticisms...

    (view spoiler)[Veronica and Stoker admit that they love each other!!!!! "I do not love her enough to kill for her." He (Stoker) stepped to the edge of the rock. "I love her enough to die for her." (hide spoiler)] That said, I love both Veronica and Stoker, but sometimes I also...

    3.5 stars The positives first: This was definitely an improvement upon the previous two books in this series. The mystery was engaging, complex and very personal for many of the main characters. There were finally developments in Veronica and Stoker's relationship and I definitely e...

    ARC received courtesy of Berkley Publishing I'm riveted by this series! I'll have to go back and read the first three sometime although I don't feel like I'm missing out by not having read them. Veronica Speedwell is a woman before her time in 1880's England. She can fend for and de...

    Shades of historical adventure and a heroine who is uniquely fascinating! Deanna Raybourn?s A DANGEROUS COLLABORATION not only takes readers back into another era, but makes us feel part of each scene as Veronica Speedwell defies all social norms and pigeon-holing with her witty dial...

    4.25 stars. Ah, Veronica Speedwell, I am always so glad to get to spend time with you. And Revelstoke Templeton-Vane (Stoker) as well. Rarely are the two of them apart, until this book, where it looks like Tiberius Templeton-Vane may lure Veronica away from Stoker?s side. Or that ...

    I read this series for the characters, but the setting in this one was outstanding. Having read Deanna's books for a few years, I feel like I've been able to see how much she gets better with each book. The descriptions for the setting and atmosphere in A Dangerous Collaboration were e...

    4 stars! Another engaging Veronica Speedwell mystery! ? ? ? ? I?m a self-admitted unusual and irregular series reader. I have a hard time sticking with them and sometimes wait until multiple books are out so I can read them in a row. Not so with the Veronica Speedwell mys...

    Lord Templton-Vane has taken over! This story is all about his secret past, his sins, his pain. Beyond the wit and sexual tension the series is known for the murder mystery was particularly good. I look forward to the next adventure featuring the infamous murders in Whitechap...

    Omg YASSSSS THIS WHOLE STOKER SIBLINGS AND VERONICA SITUATION IS DAMN GOLD! I loved all the characters development Stoker's brother got in this book rather than just being an under development potential side piece. I snort laughed (as always) continuously throughout and I CANNOT WAIT u...

    I'd say the first 50% of this book was a 3 star read, but then it picked up and the final 25% was an easy 5 stars for the veronica/stoker progression. I'll settle on a 3.5 rounded to 4 stars! I was a bit nervous wading through the beginning of this one, because it was completely di...
